1. Dual enrollment for HS English Language Arts credit; possibility for Pre-calculus
The courses are through Owens Community College. The instructor is an Owens CC professor. The course is done 100% online. The NB teacher serves as a conduit between students and the Owens professor. Credit will be given for both high school and college. An MOU is currently under review and will be presented at the February meeting. There is no cost to the Board.
2. Opt out for study labs on exam days:
During exams, high school students who have a study lab as their first or last period of the day are allowed
to be out of school during that time. Students must sign out and sign in at the office. This only applies to
periods 1 and 7 on Day One and periods 2 and 8 on Day Two of exams. High school students who have
study lab during periods 3, 4, 5, 6 must remain at school.
3. Junior High “Ugly Sweater” Dance is Friday night from 6:30-8:30
Winter Homecoming update: A “Dudes Volleyball” game will take place on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 7:30 in the HS gym. A cheer competition will take place afterward, which will be similar to the new competition we held at the fall bonfire. Another extended pep rally will be held on Friday to continue the Spirit Competition among the classes. The winter dance will take place after the basketball game on Saturday, Jan. 26.
