Newsletter Week of April 25, 2023

Dear Nashoba Regional High School Community,

I hope this message finds you doing well. The weeks after April vacation are very busy with academics, getting towards the end of the school year; planning for junior prom; and preparations for all the wonderful senior events culminating in our commencement ceremony on June 11th. It is a very exiting time of year and a time of year when we often see that excitement play out in some enhanced student behaviors, making this one of the more stressful times of the year for high school staff and administration.

Tomorrow, we will be meeting with each of our grades in class meetings to share positive expectations for the remainder of the school year. We will be communicating our expectations to the Junior and Senior classes about safe and positive decision making at and after the Junior Prom as well as all the Senior class events, such as Senior Banquet. We are sharing a similar message to our Freshman and Sophomores. We welcome a partnership with our parent and caregiver community members to reinforce this message of safety and positive decision making so we can finish what has been an amazing school year so far.

Reminders for Seniors:

  • Graduation Ticket Orders are due by May 5th
  • Cap and Gown order is due by the end of this week

Upcoming Exams:

  • Seal of Biliteracy this week
  • AP Exams begin the beginning of May
  • Math MCAS for 10th grade in the middle of May

Join us at the very first Nashoba International Fest this Saturday from 1-3pm!

Have a great week!

Congratulations to our First Robotics Team!

Team 1768 Nashoba Robotics had a very exciting time at the World Championships! We played Archimedes Division, where we finished in 27th place out of 77 teams during qualifiers. Even more exciting, we finished 12th in OPR, which is a measure of how many points your individual team contributes to each alliance during the qualifier matches. These kids designed, built and programmed a top notch robot this year!

For playoff matches, we were selected to play on Alliance 5 with a team from Texas and 2 teams from Israel. This is the first time Nashoba Robotics has ever been selected for an alliance for playoffs! Then, we won our first few matches, making it all the way to Archimedes semifinals! We ended up losing semifinals in a disappointing match because we tied the other team, but the way the rules work, we lost and they won. The team is very frustrated that they went out on a tie instead of an outright loss. But we are all so very proud of and excited for them because of how well they did leading up to that point. Amazing job this year Team 1768 Nashoba Robotics!
