Parent/Guardian Feedback Needed!

The NFHS Scheduling Committee is seeking feedback from parents/guardians regarding our daily bell schedule. We are examining our current "A/B Block" schedule and looking into possible changes and other alternatives to be sure our schedule best meets the needs of our students.

Please take this short survey, which will help guide decisions about possible changes moving forward.

Survey will close on December 18.

Rebels Apparel for the Holidays: Order Online from DECA!!!

Hello parents!!

We are a club here at NFHS called DECA, the goal of DECA is to help grow emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. At NFHS one of our many jobs is to run our school store to raise money for scholarships and competitions. This year we want to make it easy for you to have the access to order apparel for you or your loved ones especially for the holidays. We will be offering a pickup time for all orders or even delivery for just a small fee.

Scholarship Opportunities for Seniors- Updated Weekly!

The scholarship list linked below is updated weekly by the NFHS College and Career Center throughout the school year. We include a variety of mostly local and state as well as some nationally based scholarships. The list will expand after the holidays as we add in local scholarships offered by local civic organizations. There is a brief summary for each scholarship with instructions on how to apply. Applications may be accessed on- line or completed on paper applications provided by local sponsors, and criteria vary based on the sponsor. Individual applications for local (mostly New Fairfield) scholarships will be available in the College and Career Center. Please read the instructions for each scholarship carefully and pay attention to submission dates.
