NTZB Parent Bulletin
March 4, 2022
Hello New Tech Families,
Today marked the end of Quarter 3! It is hard to believe we are in the month of March and planning for the next school year is already in progress! Parent feedback and opinions are always valued, so I ask that you please consider completing the 5Essentials Parent Survey found on this bulletin. The survey will ask you to identify as a New Tech parent, therefore providing direct input for our school and planning. We are currently two weeks out from spring break and as the weather will be getting warmer, students may catch a little “spring fever!” We encourage you to continue supporting your students to attend school every day, complete assignments on time, and remain focused on their future. As we are now in the fourth quarter, be sure to monitor our new website for information and details regarding end of the year events. As always, I look forward to creating more great days for our students and staff!

THE ILLINOIS YOUTH SURVEY IS COMING SOON
The Illinois Youth Survey is completely anonymous. Healthy YOUth will use the results from the survey to create campaigns at school to educate our students on the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Look for the opt-out parent letters being mailed home if you do not wish for your child to participate. They should be returned to the New Tech Main Office by March 14th.
Questions about the survey or your child's participation can be directed to Ms. Ruggles at RugglesM@ntzb.org, sponsor of New Tech's Healthy YOUth.
NORTHERN ILLINOIS FOOD BANK MOBILE MARKET
Our local food pantries and mobile markets provide free groceries and food to those in need. Pantries offer perishable and non-perishable foods that you can choose from based on your dietary needs. If you have questions about the model of distribution your pantry is offering, or specific dietary needs or restrictions, a pantry would be happy to speak with you – just call ahead of time!
