We Have Spirit, Yes We Do!

Next week we are celebrating the Spirit of New Tech.

Here are our days:

Monday- The Spirit of the Dragon— create a dragon to put up in the commons throughout the week (much like the create an ornament thing done around Christmas).
Tuesday- The Spirit of Others— If you are a student, dress as a teacher, and if you’re a teacher, dress as a student.
Wednesday- The Spirit of Waskow— Dress as a GI Joe.
Thursday- The Spirit of Rachael— Dress as a banana or in yellow.
Friday- The Spirit of Creativity— Talent Show Day- Dress to show your personal creativity.

Also for the whole week is the Kindness Challenge:

  • Say hello to someone new, ask for name

  • Ask someone alone to sit with you at lunch

  • Do one small good deed

  • Say hello and compliment someone you may not like

  • Tell your teachers thank you at the end of class

  • Send a kind hand-written note to a classmate or teacher

  • Hold the door open for someone behind you

  • Leave an encouragement note for someone you don’t know

  • Smile to others you pass by

Learning Leadership

Lauren Hale just wrapped up an incredible week of leadership training with Teenpact Week in Washington DC! From leading committees and running parties to teaching and giving lectures, she had many opportunities to grow her skills and serve others. Despite the long hours and unexpected challenges, her team worked together and stayed adaptable. They also met with a Texas House Rep and a Supreme Court Justice! She is grateful for this amazing experience and excited to see where her leadership journey takes me next. #LeadershipTraining #ServantLeadership #Networking #Adaptability

Capitol Ideas

Mrs. Leija's AP Government and Political Science classes took a field trip to the state Capitol. They visited with Rep. Hugh Shine and Dr. Brad Buckley on issues like education and state finance.

Eagle Scout

Over 4 months and 100 hours, Alissa collected, organized and distributed 50 survival kits to the homeless. It was important to her that people not only had the kits but also knew how to use them. She took it upon herself to get first aid certified and wilderness first aid certified so that she could provide training to these individuals helping them avoid hyperthermia, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. The MOWW Fort Hood chapter assisted her in reaching her goals.

Congratulations to Eagle Scout Alissa Stauffer!

Creativity And Coffee

Creative Writing students spent time at a local coffee shop sharing their digital presentations that included original illustrations and a story themed "The Greatest Love Story."

BNT@W's location allows us to extend our learning beyond four walls. We love engaging with our local community and partnering with local businesses!


Little People, Big Art

On Thursday, March 2, New Tech art and SLC students volunteered to help with Charter Oak Elementary’s Big Art Day. The New Tech students shared the New Tech Spirit through 2 different art activities for each grade level. They used their experience and understanding of psychological developmental levels and provided a great experience overall.

150 Years In AP Human Geography

AP Human Geography students participated in the Industrial Revolution Urban planning game today! During this game, students grew in their understanding of the social, economic, and political factors that shaped the growth of urban areas in Great Britain during the Industrial Revolution.

Students collaborated, used critical thinking and problem-solving skills, creativity, and adaptability as they made decisions about urban planning and development. This was a challenging event as they progressed through 150 years of change (1700-1850).
