|Dress for Success Day
The weather is feeling like spring, and our memorable winter is finally behind us. With a multitude of hurricane and snow days, our new last day of school for students will be Friday, June 21st. This will also be the graduation date.
Our calendars are filled with many events, to name just a few: our trip to Italy, Coast Guard SPIL Program, Connecticut College Women in Science, Mitchell College field trips, Student Dress for Success Day, guest speakers, selecting courses for next year and deadlines for projects. It is a time when students can easily lose focus or feel overwhelmed. Please encourage your student to finish the school year with a strong focus on academics. Involvement in extracurricular activities is continually encouraged. We generally find that the most involved students are the most successful students.
Please impress upon your child that academic obligations must be taken seriously. Assignments should be completed in a timely manner. Encourage your child to speak with his/her teachers to check on missing assignments and to stay for extra help. We have New London and out of town late buses Monday - Thursday for our students. How your child finishes in June will affect his/her status in the fall, whether the student is a graduating senior embarking on college or careers, or one who is returning to us.
We have some important dates for you to mark on your calendars:
· April Vacation: Monday, April 15th through Friday, April, 19th
· Thursday, April 25th and Friday, April 26th: Student early dismissal days at 11:30
· Thursday, April 25th: 3-7 p.m. Parent/Teacher Conferences in the NLHS Cafeteria. This is an open forum; no appointment is necessary. You will be given your child’s progress report and have the opportunity to speak with the teachers you desire.
· Watch our website for upcoming senior information and important end of the year activities and dates.
As always, please feel free to contact us with any concerns, suggestions, questions or problems. Remember our school mantra, ‘Success is an attitude. Failure is not an option!’
