HAPPY NEW YEARPosted by NIDIA CASTRO on 1/18/2020 4:00:00 PM
Hello parents and students,
I am so excited for the new semester and I hope that your students as as well. I hope that they are rested and ready to tackle the second semester.
This semester we will continue to work on our expectations of 100% Graduation (we must exceed the 98% from last June) meeting the attendace expectations and for this I need your help, please send your youngsters to school on time and every day. Plan your doctor's appointments for days we do not have school or for after school hours.
There will be no school on January 20th and February 17th. These are good dates to make your medical or dental appointments. Remember that in order for students to meet the 96% attendance expectation, they cannot miss more than 7 days the entire school year.
We are also providing students with an opportuntiy to make up the classes that they migh have failed the fall semester by attending Saturday School, which will begin on Saturday, January 25, 2020 from 8:00-12:20PM. Students must attend a minimum of 60 hours in order to get credit for the class. We will be offering English, Geometry, Algebra 2A and World History. Have your child get an application form the counselors as spaces are limited. We will be accepting students on a first come-first served bases.
Tutoring will begin on Monday the 27th from 3:15 to 4:45PM. Our CSUN tutors are eager to continue working with our pumas. We wil have tutoring for English and Math.
We are looking forward to increasing the percentage of proficiency in both English and Math so we hope that our students take advantage of this opportunity.
Please join us for the Individual Graduation Plan meetings (IGP) that we have scheduled for seniors and Juniors in the MPR on January 22, 2020. 5:00-6:00PM for English nd 6:00-7:00PM for Spanish speakers.
Parents, I continue to urge you to open a parent Portal account. You can stay on top of your kids' grades and attendance by using this very helpful tool for parents.
We are beginning our work to prepare for our Accreditation visit in the fall of 2020-2021. We would like to have a lot of parent participation. More information will come your way on this topic.
Lastly, I am requesting volunteers to be active members of the Friends of NAHS Booster Organization. We meet the first Tuesday of the month in Room 103 from 6:30-7:30PM. Our next meeting is on February 4th.
