The Viking Voice

January - February

Welcome 2021!

Happy 2021! I hope this finds you and your family well and enjoying the new year.

Semester one will come to an end on Friday, January 29. Until then, students are encouraged to continue working hard to finish the semester strong.


Illuminate testing started on the week of January 11, 2020. If your child missed their Illuminate test, makeups are scheduled for the week of January 18, starting on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. Monday is a school holiday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

In the essence of MLK Day, let us reflect on his legacy. He said, “Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.” A complete education encompasses learning of the mind and learning of oneself. As students learn the curriculum, we must not forget to teach integrity.


On behalf of the NEHS staff, I am asking for your support in encouraging your child to attend class, be engaged in their classes, and complete classwork. Thank you in advance for your support with this request.



Respectfully,


Waymond Ervin

Principal, Northeast HS

End of the Fall Semester

The end of the semester is January 29, 2021. Students have the opportunity to make up assignments from the Fall Semester. Please contact your teacher for more information regarding missing assignments.

Am I on the right path to Graduate?


Graduation is depended on accumulation of credits from passing classes. Students should have obtained 3.5 credits by the end of the Fall Semester, likewise with the Spring Semester for a total of 7 credits for the school year.


  • Freshmen need 6 credits to become a Sophomore.
  • Sophomores need 12 credits to become Juniors.
  • Juniors need 18 credits to become Seniors.
  • Seniors need 24 credits for GRADUATION!


Please do not wait for Summer School as you are only allowed to retrieve 1.5 credits. If you did not pass all of your classes or if you have below 3 credits for the Fall Semester , please contact your counselor immediately.
