Raider Nation,

I hope everyone is off to a great start to the much needed and deserved break. There is a lot to share and celebrate in Raider Nation this week as you will see in the newsletter. We continue to work hard to get better each day and provide the opportunities and experiences your students need to be successful. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your child's success!

Student Wellness Survey

Student Wellness Survey
On Monday, April 11 in English classes, students will complete a short, anonymous wellness survey. This survey is similar to the much longer Georgia Student Health Survey that used to be required for schools to administer. Survey results will not only give us much needed feedback about the programs we offer but also allow students to share about their personal wellness and feelings about attending NFHS. The data will inform our revisions to the School Improvement Plan and allow us to track progress over the course of the next year. Please contact Mrs. Dykes or Mrs. Loftus if you have any questions about the survey.

End of Course Testing Important Information

End of Course Assessments and Virtual Learning Week

During the week of May 2-6, students in EOC courses will complete their online assessments. There are only four EOCs: Algebra I, Biology, United States History, and American Literature and Composition (including AP Language and Composition). Unlike last year when Georgia lawmakers reduced the weight of EOCs in students' final grades, this year the EOC will again count for 20% of your student's final grade in the EOC course. That means it is very important that your student attend the assigned testing date. We ask that you please prioritize these dates in your student's schedule / calendar and avoid appointments if at all possible. Please keep in mind that AP testing will also occur this week in both the morning and afternoon sessions.

The week of May 2- 6 will continue to be an online learning week for high school students. Students should only attend school on the date(s) of their required test(s). After students have been dismissed from their testing session, they are free to leave campus for the day. It is not necessary to sign out from the attendance office. Students who remain on campus will be expected to sit in the cafeteria for the remainder of the day until 3:40.

AP Testing Update

Students taking an AP exam in May need to attend the Pre AP-Testing meeting during Raider Time on Wednesday April 13th. Students will be automatically added to the session.

Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 registration opens on March 30, 2022.

  • If the course is available via Forsyth Virtual Academy, it is recommended that the student take the course through that venue because they will have a Forsyth County teacher and it follows district course expectations.

We are wrapping up our ninth year and appreciate the support of the North Forsyth community. Many thanks to our donors, schools, and Ambassadors!

Counseling News

Counseling Newsletter

The NFHS Counseling Team wishes you all a wonderful spring break! As we approach the end of another wonderful year, please make sure to talk to your students about their grades, so that they finish the year strong. For SENIORS who are struggling with classes, we will be hosting a Senior Academy the week of virtual learning (May 2- May 6), where seniors who are failing graduation requirements will be expected to attend school to work on making up work. Counselors will reach out to families whose students need the resource after spring break!

Are you interested in a virtual class next year? Please fill out the form here by April 15, so that counselors can get students registered for virtual classes.

Earlier this spring, students completed the YouScience assessment during Raider Time to help find best fit careers based on their aptitude. Counselors are currently working with freshman and sophomores who may have missed the Raider Time session. We encourage parents to ask their students to show them their YouScience results to help with conversations about your student's future.
