The Weekly Update for NPHS families, Dec 16 - Dec 21, 2019

Patriots Know How To Grapple

Hello Patriots,

And....the last week of the semester is here! And yes, it is exam week; click here for the schedule. Study halls for students are still going on after school for Monday and here for that schedule.

Thank you for your input regarding the proposed SSP pilot for 3rd quarter. Overwhelmingly, students, parents, and staff are interested in giving the lunchtime SSP option a try. We still have some considerations and permissions to work out, but should know by mid-week the status of that pilot proposal.

Do you know the significance of the numbers 6 and 9? Those are the numbers of girl and boy wrestlers respectively, that NPHS qualified this weekend at Regionals to go to State! We will have a State Walk in the halls for them Tuesday, the beginning of 3rd period, then these wrestlers will board their bus for Anchorage Thursday morning. Their names are listed below...way to go Patriots!

Also, we are having a special 30-minute assembly this Tuesday at 10 am to celebrate education and highlight NPHS. That schedule is here.

Lastly, this has been a fun first semester for me and I want to thank you for your part in making it so. I wish you and your family a fun, peaceful and rejuvenating winter break!
