Hello, Norte Vista students and families!
I hope this message finds you in good health and spirits, and, of course, being Brave!
Well, only 81 school days remain for this school year. For our senior class, only 77 school days remain of their K-12 public education! In both cases, this means that every day is extremely important. No matter what grade your student may be in, please continue to have weekly conversations with your student about grades, assignments, tutoring, progress reports, the importance of attendance, being on time every day/period, and completing all assignments as directed.
Second, please be aware that during the second semester of school, we have numerous state and local assessments to administer to various groups of students. Each assessment is extremely important, as these assessments are an opportunity to gauge how your student is progressing academically. Please, encourage your students to do their best on each test, as well as encourage them to attend every day, on time. Students doing their absolute best will be eligible to receive incentives/rewards for doing so. This information will be shared with students during our next schoolwide college and career day (January 18, 2024).
Next, as always, I will continue to emphasize what I expect from every student attending Norte Vista High School. I need a commitment from every student to embrace our "10 Things That Require Zero Talent", as well as our Novi Values (Respect, Integrity, and Determination). These characteristics are industry "soft skills", as well as the foundation of the "Best High School in the World"! Please see our schoolwide banners below, which are also posted in every classroom on campus, and our hallways.
Finally, thank you for your continued support of the Norte Vista High School cell phone policy, food delivery policy, dress code policy, and new tardy policy. These policies and other site or district policies help maintain high expectations and the safest learning environment possible, free of disruptions and distractions. We thank you for your cooperation and support in addressing these policies, and ensuring academic achievement remains a top priority not just on campus, but throughout our entire community!
