New Tech High School at Coppell and the American Red Cross are hosting an upcoming blood drive on November 6 from 9am to 3pm.
Please join our lifesaving mission and schedule an appointment today!
The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.
If you are a junior or senior: permission slips are on the Community Service bulletin board by the cafeteria for those that are under 18.
Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!

Haunted House Items Needed
Dear Parents of New Tech High,
Our annual Haunted House’s is coming soon. This is an event designed by our students that New Tech host every year in order to bring the community together and get into the Halloween spirit. Our haunted house wouldn’t have ever succeeded without donations from people such as yourself. That’s why this year, we are reaching out to you to ask for your assistance to bring the Haunted House to life through your generosity and donations. Some things we are looking for are:
Dolls (willing to be bloodied or broken)
Baking soda and vinegar
(Black or Red) curtains for when entering
Plastic Halloween Weapons
There is a box in the office that your student can drop donations into. Please bring things in by October 23rd at the very latest. Thank you for your help.

Looking for Job Shadowing and Internship Hosts
Dear New Tech Parents,
We are looking for help in providing job shadowing experiences for our junior and senior learners. As part of our graduation requirements learners participate in career exploration by shadowingprofessionals in an occupation of their choice. Learners and their families are primarily responsible for finding these opportunities but several have requested help in this process.
If you, or someone you know, would be willing to host a learner for 10 to 15 hours at your place of business, please let me know! We have students interested in a variety of careers, so any occupation could be a possibility for a valuable experience for a learner. In particular, we have a large number of learners who want to shadow in the areas of programming or game design, engineering, medicine, law, graphic design, business/finance and psychology. Thank you for your support as we work to ensure our graduates are college and career ready.
