@ Battle T Shirt Design Competition
The Learner Leadership Council is excited to announce that November 11th, 2017 will be our official date for the annual "The @ Battle” dodgeball tournament. The @ Battle is an epic dodgeball tournament with all proceeds supporting New Tech High @ Coppell. The tournament will be held at Coppell Middle School North. Proceeds from the tournament will support the Learner Leadership Council and class activities for the Class of 2018 & the Class of 2019.
Each year LLC members design a t-shirt for the tournament, which are given to all of those who participate and are sold at a minimal cost, to help raise funds for all New Tech learners. This year, the committee wanted to open the t-shirt design across all grades, to all learners.
If you are interested in designing The @ Battle 2017
t-shirt here are the requirements:
- It must contain the year and the tournament name within the design on the front
- It may have either a small back design, or no back design at all. Sponsors for the tournament are placed on the back of the t-shirt.
- Print should be one color
- Everything on the t-shirt, must be school appropriate.
Please have your designs submitted email@example.com by September 29th, 2017. Contact Kathy Matamoros if you have any other questions.
New Tech Helping After Harvey
Parents and Learners,
Below is the email that I sent out last week about our efforts to help after Hurricane Harvey.
Due to the devastation on the Texas Coast from Hurricane Harvey, NTH@C has committed to partnering with Creech Elementary School in Katy, TX and supporting them throughout the rebuilding of their school and community by hosting a toy donation drive. Their campus, as well as their neighborhoods, were significantly affected by the storm and we have been very intentional over the course of the past few weeks to work with the campus to fill a need that will not already be addressed by another organization.
Creech Elementary School has been classified as unfit for use, so they will be using a satellite campus at the University of Houston for the remainder of the school year. The University of Houston has donated this space, but it is a college campus and has no playground or other recreational activities. Creech Elementary School serves Mrs. Osterberger’s nephew and other young learners who will be without toys, games, and other recreational items while their school is repaired.
Therefore, NTH@C launched a Recess-Time Game Drive yesterday within your learner’s Networking class. During this drive, we will collect all types of games and recreational toys so that the learners of Creech Elementary School will be able to enjoy some play time during school. The due date for donations is Wednesday, September 27th.
Some examples of donations include board games, sidewalk chalk, paints, jump ropes, jacks, and large checkers. You may also donate gift cards. Feel free to send a WalMart, Target, or Amazon gift card and we will purchase the supplies for you.
Creech Elementary School appreciates your awesome support and is excited about the partnership with NTH@C. Thank you for all of your questions, comments, and suggestions as we build this partnership. We know that the road to healing after a devastating event can be quite long and do not expect this partnership to end with this drive. We will continue to be in contact with the school and let you know of other drives and opportunities throughout the year as they work within their new “normal”.
Many thanks to Ms. Osterberger, the LLC, and NTCs for helping us put this effort together!
Proud to be your principal,
