Message from Bob Carnaroli
As stated above, good habits, formed NOW will definitely make a difference for your student(s), as they matriculate through high school and beyond into adulthood. Working together as a United Raider Nation Team, including our staff and families will benefit our students greatly in all they do. It starts with being safe, personal wellness and balance, and doing the little things each and everyday to be the best version of yourself that you can be. It's important to treat others with grace, dignity and respect. Being where you are supposed to be, doing what you are supposed to be doing is also a great habit for life.
Thank you for supporting us in all we do to help our students to be safe and to have the best experience possible while maximizing their gifts and talents for the betterment of all.

Class of 2023
Class of 2023 Parents/Guardians,
We are getting increasingly excited about celebrating your students over the next couple of months with all of the amazing activities planned for them. We wanted to touch base with our Raider Senior Families about important information and dates to make sure you were aware of everything going on for our 12th grade students.
We are restarting this amazing tradition at North Forsyth High School this year. The idea is that students will get to read letters collected from people that have had a profound impact on them over their childhood. We will collect letters between January 21st – April 28th, 2023. This is a hard deadline for letter collection because we will need ample time to sort letters. Letters can be dropped off in person, or mailed to the school directly. Specific directions on what can be sent and how to send letters can be found on our website here. Senior letters will be distributed to students at a later date in May.
Families can start ordering graduation announcements. These are a great way to share with family and friends that your student is graduating from North Forsyth High School on May 21st, 2023! Place your order today here.
Senior Dues must be paid in order for students to participate in the graduation ceremony at Gas South Arena on May 21st, 2023 at 2pm. Senior Dues cover the cost for cap/gown, the diploma/diploma cover, rental of the Gas South Arena, the Senior Picnic, and Senior Breakfast. Dues are $145 until January 31st. On February 1st, they will increase to $170 to incur a late fee. Please pay as soon as possible to ensure that your student will receive their cap/gown by the senior picnic in April. Dues must be paid online at 3rd Ascent.
Senior Week will be held April 24th – April 28th. Cap and Gown Distribution will be held on Wednesday, April 26th during 2nd period and then students will head to Coal Mountain Field for the Annual Senior Picnic during Raider Time and Wellness.
Senior Final Exams will be held between May 8th and May 11th. This allows final grades to be submitted before graduation. All graduation requirements must be completed in order to participate in graduation.
Senior Awards Night is Invitation Only and will be held on May 16th. This night is to honor students that have been awarded academic based scholarships and a variety of school-based awards. It will be held in Raider Arena.
Senior Breakfast will be held at 9AM on Thursday, May 18th. We will provide food and drinks for students. We will also disburse graduation tickets and graduate parking passes with their regalia. During breakfast, we will go over expectations for graduation. If any student is unable to attend, the presentation will be available on the senior class news page and tickets/parking pass/regalia can be picked up in the front office after the breakfast.
Baccalaureate will be held on Thursday, May 18th at 6pm. It will be held at First Baptist Church Cumming. Graduates are expected to wear their graduation gown, but not their cap. This is an optional event. A reception will follow the short ceremony.
Graduation will be held at Gas South Arena at 2pm on Sunday, May 21st, 2023. All guests will need a ticket. Graduates will be given tickets and a student parking pass on the morning of the senior breakfast. Dress code and expectations will be shared on May 18th at Senior Breakfast.
Course Registration underway:
Counselors are meeting individually with all students in English classes beginning on February 1 to ensure that all scheduling is correct.
