Badger Parents Newsletter

Volume 1, Issue 9

Welcome, Parents!

Happy New Year! I hope this newsletter finds you all doing well. Our faculty and staff enjoyed their break and are all rejuvenated and ready to continue to make an impact in the lives of all of our students. As you know, the spring is busy and we would love to see you at our upcoming events such as the open house and showcase evenings, sporting events, and our pep rally. I want to thank each of you for your continued support!

Pictures from Community Link Christmas Pick up

Students from NJHS, Builders Club, and Renaissance Team devoted a Saturday to serving our community. They delivered all meals to families in need at Community Link in a drive through process. We have so many wonderful students with servant hearts! Our campus is thankful to have Ms. Smith, Ms. Warden, and Mr. Knowles leading these organizations of students.


We have had our first blue tooth speaker purchased from the Badger Store for 1,000 Badger Bucks! Congratulations, Christian Davis for working hard and earning all those Badger Bucks! Parents, please continue to encourage your child(ren) to work hard to earn these bucks.
