Congratulations AP Scholars!
This week we were able to celebrate our AP Scholars by putting yard signs in their yards! We hope that you enjoy this special recognition! Thank you to Rita Uhlenhake, our AP Coordinator, who placed these signs in yards! The AP Scholars designations are created by College Board and are awarded based on the following criteria:
- An AP Scholar is granted to students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams.
- An AP Scholar with Honors is granted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, AND scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.
- An AP Scholar with Distinction is granted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, AND scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.
We are very proud that at NNHS we had 42 AP Scholars, 28 Scholars with Honors, and 48 Scholars with Distinction! Our AP Scholar Yard Signs simply say "AP Scholars" to recognize these 118 scholarly students who will be taking a lot of college credits with them after they graduate from college!

OCT 12TH - SENIOR OPTIONS FOR LEARNING
On October 12, 9th graders will take the PSAT 8/9 test, 10th &11th graders will take the PSAT/NMSQT. Seniors will be able to use October 12th in 4 different learning directions: 1. Individual Career Academic Plan (ICAP) Learning day, 2. CPR certification, 3. Take the ASVAB, or 4. Personal Financial Literacy graduation requirement instead of attending school as usual.
1. An ICAP learning day would involve students directing their learning goals for the day in an area of their choice: college visits, college investigations, career investigations, job-shadowing, writing a college essay for entrance, applying for a job, interviewing for a job, etc. Seniors who choose to focus their learning on this day, simply need to have a parent email their attendance secretary that their child will be involved in ICAP learning on Oct. 12th. No other proof is necessary for virtual learning activity.
2. Because CPR is a graduation requirement, seniors who have not completed CPR may sign up using the QR code below to complete CPR during one of the sessions on Oct. 12th at NNHS.
3. Seniors who are interested in taking the ASVAB from 9:00am- 1:00pm at NNHS may sign up through the following link:
4. Additionally, seniors may choose to work on their Personal Financial Literacy (PFL) work that is required for graduation. Seniors in a high school government class will get opportunities to complete most of the work in class but seniors not in government will need to do all of the work independently. Seniors not in government should have already received a link to the work from their counselor, if they did not, they just need to email their counselor for that. Seniors who choose to focus their learning on this day, simply need to have a parent email their attendance secretary that their child will be involved in Personal Financial Literacy work on Oct. 12th. No other proof is necessary for virtual learning activity.
Seniors who would like to do their ICAP or PFL learning can report to the MPR room at NNHS on Oct. 12th where there will be teacher supervision and support.
SAFETY IS EVERYONE'S PRIORITY
Having an incredible learning environment where each student finds success and support for his/her goals and dreams is not possible without a safe environment. Throughout this year, everyone will be involved in more frequent safety training and discussions.
The first change that we are making is that ALL STAFF and STUDENTS must have a STAFF or STUDENT ID easy visible above their waist. This is to assist with faster identification of who should be on our campus and who should not.
Parents, it can be difficult for teenagers to always remember their ID but this is as important , if not more important, as bringing their MacBook to school. We will be giving each student 2 IDs to begin the year. After that if a student arrives at school, he/she will be escorted to get another ID and $5.00 will be charged to his/her account. Students will not be allowed to travel in the building without an ID around their neck. We need for parents to help remind their children each day of their ID. Where can the ID be hung each day so that it's easy to grab and put around the child's neck? You can help make this a priority just like the MacBook.
Second, while our safety committee has always been important, we are going to increase the frequency of meetings so that we are continually evaluating the safety of our staff and students. We would like to have 2 parents and 2 students join this committee. If you are interested, please fill out the attached form: 22-23 Safety Committee Volunteer Form.
If you have any safety questions or concerns, please let me know.
Thank you for making Norman North High School a safer school!
