NGC Update Quarter 2

October 22, 2021

Welcome to Quarter 2

NGC Families and Students,

Welcome back for Quarter 2! I hope everyone had a relaxing fall break! We are excited about moving into quarter 2 as many students become more independent and accountable for their work completion and their actions. The 2nd quarter ends in January, so make sure students are staying on track for their assignments as the weeks roll by this time of year. The class of 2025 is filled with students who are respectful and responsible and we are enjoying watching them grow and mature throughout the year.

Grade Cards for Quarter 1

Grades for first quarter will officially be available next week. Student grade cards can only be viewed through ProgressBook. You will not be receiving a hard copy of your child’s report card. Students will have second quarter grades to average with first quarter to make up their semester grade. It is important they keep up the good work or improve their study and work practices to make sure all work gets completed and submitted on time to earn the best grade. Here is an article with resources for study skills for high school students!

If you need a parent access code for ProgressBook, please contact Paula Harvey

Counseling Connection

New Graduation Requirements (Class of 2023 & Beyond): Starting this week and over the next 4 weeks, we will be introducing Ohio's New "Permanent" Graduation Requirements. Here is Video 1. We will have an in-person meeting on Thursday, November 18 from 5:45pm-6:30pm at the high school to go over all of the video content and offer a Q&A Session.

Students on Quarantine

Students on quarantine are expected to stay current and complete assignments for their classes. If your child is a student who is quarantined, please remind them to check Schoology courses for assignments, directions, and materials. If they need more assistance and clarification, please tell them to email their teacher so they can get help if they need it! We work on self-advocacy all year to encourage students to ask teachers for guidance in class or via email!

Absence Reporting

In order for your child to have an excused absence, you will need to report the absence in one of these ways:

If your student needs to have an early dismissal, please complete an early dismissal pass and have your student bring it to the MHS Main office.
