Good morning Falcons. Today is January 24, and it is a B day. You should all have received notice from Superintendent Castle on Friday that we will be postponing implementing new COVID protocols until next week. The new ‘Test at Home’ system relies on a large amount of tests and at this point we don’t feel that we have enough to sustain the program, so we will wait to adopt the new guidance until we have enough tests. Thank you for your patience.
Falcon Flex Block - Beginning today, there will be some changes to FFB! Please check your emails for this important information - FFB Updates - Students . For example, all 9th and 10th grade students should be signing up for this week’s flex block right now. These changes are intended to help students use the time available to them to make sure that their work is all caught up and that they are demonstrating their progress towards meeting proficiencies. Thank you in advance for your help with this.
Congratulations to our student of the week Sabine Brueck. Sabine was nominated by Mrs. Pellizzari for being an excellent student. Sabine has an outstanding work ethic, a great attention to detail and timeliness with getting her work done. Congratulations on a great semester Sabine, keep up the good work!
Congratulations to our spotlight student Emily Phillabaum. Emily was nominated by Ms. Caspari for being an incredible member of our North Country Ceramics Studio. Emily comes in on her time off to complete studio maintenance that keeps our classroom running smooth. She is always willing to lend a hand to others and never sits idle. Her stellar work ethic and kind heart have made her a super star in the Ceramics Studio. Well done Emily.
ATTENTION SNOWMOBILERS: VAST management and the City of Newport request all snowmobilers stay off the sliding hill at Prouty Beach. A lot of work has been done to create this sliding hill for our community. If our student snowmobilers continue to do this we will have to stop the privilege of student snowmobilers from driving to our school.
