HAPPY NEW YEAR AND WELCOME BACK!
As we embark on our journey through 2023, I wanted to take a moment to wish all of our families a Happy New Year! I am looking forward to the excitement to come over the next 6 months as we progress to towards the conclusion of another school year and the celebration of graduation for the Class of 2023!
The new year is always a time for new beginnings. It is a time when many pledge for self improvement. I am hopeful that all of our students put their best foot forward academically. One of the easiest ways to improve individual achievement is to be present in school as much as possible. If students are ill, they should stay home in order to get better. Otherwise, the goal should be to be in school, on time, regularly.
Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit so that our students will learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college and at work.
Congratulations to FBLA Regional Competitive Winner: Andreas Psillos, 7th place, Supply Chain Management. Andreas is a senior at North and will be attending the State Leadership Conference in March in Atlantic City. We are very proud of Andreas for his hard work and dedication to FBLA.

2022-23 Community Service Project - Higher With Attire!
Beginning on Wednesday, January 4th, TRN-FBLA will begin our annual community service project.
This project will help to make a difference around our local community by donating new/good-conditioned business attire to ensure career readiness and professionalism for our current TRN-FBLA members, Providence House, and Just Believe. Donation boxes will be located in the main office. We will be collecting gently used casual and formal business attire up until Friday, January 27th.
We are hoping to collect as many business attire items, including hangers, as possible. If you could please also post this in your google classroom pages so that your students know, that would be great. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Below are the links for information about the organizations, Providence House and Just Believe.
