Principal's Weekly Updates
A reminder that progress reports are now available through PowerSchool. It is also now possible to see the fields for final exams, Semester 2 grades, and Year-end grades, none of which are yet finalized. Please keep in mind that these are dynamic calculations and will continue to be updated as additional assessments are added through to the end of the year. We expect final grades will be available for seniors on Monday, June 1st. Grades for underclassmen should be finalized by Monday, June 22nd.
A reminder that we have an early release this Friday, May 22nd, with students being released at 11:30.
This is the Seniors' final week of classes. I met with them last Friday and reminded them of the expectations for their behavior, and the possible consequences of inappropriate behavior. Parents, anything you can be doing at home to remind the Seniors to finish in a positive way is much appreciated.
Nashoba's Spring Fling dance will be held in the cafeteria and gym at the high school on May 29th from 6-10pm. Tickets are $10 if purchased in advance or $15 if purchased at the door. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Michelle Farnsworth's scholarship fund or the "Why Me?" charity in Michelle's name. In order to make the Spring Fling a successful event, the Freshman and Sophomore classes need food donations from families -- you can sign up to donate food at Volunteerspot. Donations can be delivered to the cafeteria at Nashoba on May 29th from 3-5:30pm. If you have any questions please contact Kimberly Earley at email@example.com or Maureen Dumais at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, I am very concerned to report that we have heard a number of stories of student drug use at private parties after the Prom last Saturday night. That is one reason why we hold the After-Prom each year, to provide a safe and substance-free opportunity for our students. Please know that this is way on our radar, and that we are investigating these stories. I am very concerned about our children's safety both in and out of school, and it will take a community-wide effort to address and reduce teen substance use. To that end, we are hosting a community forum on underage substance use the night of Tuesday, May 26th at 7:00 PM here in the high school auditorium, sponsored by Middlesex Partnerships for Youth. During this presentation, a drug and gang State Police Sergeant will illustrate the current state of youth drug use in Middlesex County and the signs and symptoms that parents, school staff, and other adults should be looking for regarding potential drug use by young people in their community. I would strongly urge you to attend this forum -- one risky mistake by a teenager can lead to a lifetime of consequences, and we need to all work together to address this very real danger. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to email@example.com.
Thank you, and have a wonderful and safe week. [more]
