Principal's Weekly Updates
Our April newsletter is now posted on our website.
A reminder that third quarter report cards will be going out this Friday, April 11th. Parents who requested paper copies will have them mailed on Friday, and all parents will be able to see third quarter grades and comments through PowerSchool. On Friday, I will send out a reminder with the instructions on how to access grades and comments through PowerSchool.
A reminder that we will have a presentation sponsored by the Gay Straight Alliance for sophomores and juniors during school on Wednesday, April 16th. The GSA will also be hosting the "Day of Silence" on Friday, April 11th. On the Day of Silence, participants take a vow to be silent for the day to protest the discrimination and harassment faced by many gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies.
This year's After Prom Party will be held at Orchard Hills Athletic Club in Lancaster on May 10th, from 10:30pm- 3:30am. The party is free for all Junior students and their prom dates. Students will enjoy music, dancing, swimming, sports, a magician and hypnotist, as well as other fun activities. Refreshments and great door prizes will be provided throughout the evening. This drug/alcohol-free event is possible through parent and community support. For more information or to volunteer please contact Debbie Crane 978-562-9969 OR firstname.lastname@example.org. Parents will have the option to pick up and sign-out their children at the High School, rather than at Orchard Hills, with free transportation provided by First Student Transportation between Orchard Hills and Nashoba. I hope you will encourage your child to attend!
A reminder to parents of juniors, sophomores, and freshmen, this is the last week that you can order a 2013-2014 yearbook for your child. To order, go to ybpay.lifetouch.com and follow the steps. If you have any questions, please e-mail Kristin Hera, the yearbook advisor, at email@example.com.
And finally, Nashoba Night at Fenway Park is July 9th. We have tickets reserved to see the Red Sox play the White Sox. Tickets are $26 - please see the announcement below for more details.
Congratulations to Nashoba's Athletic Director, Tania Rich!
Ms. Rich was recently awarded the Ted Damko State Award, which is presented annually to an athletic administrator with 3 to 5 years of experience who has exemplified the highest standards of their profession and has made significant contributions to their school and community. We already knew that Ms. Rich was a phenomenal educator and athletic director, and now the whole state knows as well!

PARENT SURVEY - During Open house all NRHS parents are invited to complete the Endicott Survey, which asks questions about the strengths and weaknesses of the high school and is a key part of our re-accreditation process. The survey can be accessed at http://www.endicottresearchcenter.net, enter the survey code P2013794 and click GO. Addtional directions about the survey are [here]. We are hoping to have as many parents as possible complete the survey to help us continue to improve as a school. Thank you!
