New Albany High School
Bi-Weekly Update - January 3, 2023
A Message From Your Principal
For the start of the second semester, we will be reinforcing several critical student expectations that help create a safe learning environment and allows all students to be successful.
- Students are required to wear their E+R=O lanyard and student ID throughout the day..
- Students should arrive to school and class on time and remain in class for the first 10 and last 10 minutes of every period; our 10 minute rule.
- Students who leave early from school and do not have an approved opt out on their schedule must sign-out in the welcome center.
- Students must wear their lanyard in the breakfast and lunch line and are not permitted to have their backpack. Students can leave their backpacks at their table or in the hallway outside of the lunch line.
Looking forward, registration for the 2023-2024 school year will begin this month with our registration night on January 30th from 6:00-8:00pm in the HS/MS cafeteria. Our high school registration night is an opportunity for all students and families to meet with our staff to discuss future course options. There will be presentations from our school counselors and the opportunity to talk with many of our teachers to answer your questions so that our students can make better informed choices about their schedule next year. More information about this event and our registration process will be sent in the next couple weeks.
We are all excited to welcome our students back for the second semester, tomorrow.
Kindness, Dignity, and Respect Student Report
Our Culture of Accountability has been built on the foundation that we are each responsible for our behavior, that we “own” our responses to challenges and circumstances, that we are stronger when we work together, and that we will strive to be better every day.
“NAPLS is Committed to Fostering an Environment of Kindness, Dignity & Respect.”
In order to assure clarity of understanding, we have defined each of the words as follows:
Committed: Dedicated to policies and actions that reinforce these values.
Fostering: Encouraging and promoting the development and ownership of behaviors consistent with these values.
Environment: Wherever we interact with each other.
Kindness: Acting in ways that honor individual uniqueness and trust in the goodwill and good intentions of one another.
Dignity: Accepting and supporting the self-worth of others.
Respect: Consider the feelings, viewpoints, rights, or traditions of others.
In order to foster an open dialogue about Kindness, Dignity, and Respect, we need to listen to student voices to celebrate what's working and learn how we may continue to improve our school culture. The administration invites students from New Albany Middle School and New Albany High School to complete this form to share their voices to help us continue to build a safe, supportive and connected school culture where all students belong and are treated with kindness, dignity and respect.
Textbook - Parent Advisory Committee
NAPLS Board Policy 2510 states that all textbook adoptions require a parent advisory committee to facilitate a parent review of selected materials. Teachers have used the selection criteria stated in NAPLS Administrative Guidelines 2510 to review multiple texts (World History, American History, Spanish 3 & 4, AP Physics, AP Environmental Science, and College Algebra). The parent advisory committee will meet in late January to review the middle and high school textbooks that are up for adoption. Parents interested in participating in the parent advisory committee for upcoming secondary textbook adoptions should complete this form. This interest form will be available from January 3, 2023, through January 11, 2023. The parent advisory committee will be limited to 10-12 parents from various grade levels. Parents selected to be part of the parent advisory committee for textbook adoptions will be notified via email the week of January 16th with additional information. If you have questions, please contact Dr. Jessica Mamais, Director of Secondary Education, via email@example.com.
