The Lions' PRIDE

An update from New Hope-Solebury Middle School

The Lions' PRIDE

Welcome to the second edition of The Lions' Pride newsletter. Here we will share the latest events and highlights of our Middle School community. In this edition, we are highlighting Teacher Appreciation Week, Distance Learning, and getting connected! There are several ways to get connected with our Middle School community! As we settle into our distance learning routines, our students are using this time to deeply explore their interests. Send us a picture this week of what you have been up to and consider honoring our hardworking and dedicated teachers with a Flipgrid video! We love to see your pictures and we miss each and every one of your smiling faces.

Be safe and well,

Mr. Brian Loving, Principal

Sending best wishes from our staff to you!

Teacher Appreciation Week

May 4th-8th is National Teacher Appreciation Week! I am thankful and honored to work among such incredibly dedicated and hardworking staff! Our NHSD teachers have overcome incredible obstacles to transition learning to an entirely virtual environment in this unprecedented time. Let's send some virtual love to our teachers! Please consider posting a video message or picture of thanks to your teacher, ideas include a poster, chalk, or even a poem! Click on the Flipgrid Icon to start your video. Have fun and be creative! #TeacherAppreciationWeek #NHSMS

Report Cards

Third marking period report cards will be ready Friday, May 1st at 4 PM. Our Third and Fourth marking periods will be Pass/Fail. Teachers may be using numeric grades to track performance, but the final grades will be Pass/Fail.

Distance Learning

Distance learning can take on many forms and doesn't always need to be digital! From teachers baking bread to students multitasking to backyard experiments. Distance Learning has taken us to places we never thought we could go. Our NHS middle school students are using this time to explore their interests with hands-on activities! What interests have you been exploring- send us your pictures, we'd love to see what you have been up to!
