Congratulations to Daulton Manning and Jeff Boone for beating Ms. Smith and Coach Maus in Pickleball. Their win ended the Smith-Maus 10 year undefeated record!

In an effort to be consistent in dress expectations, we will use the “finger tip length when hands are held normally at the sides” rule for rips and tears in jeans where skin is exposed. This still allows you the choice to wear fashionable ripped jeans and is better aligned with the “finger tip” expectation that is used for dresses, shorts, etc. This idea came from a Senior, and we certainly appreciate the input.

NRHS Marching Band will practice Monday – Thursday from 3:05 – 6:15 pm. Everyone needs to be on time. This practice is for everyone who is participating in spring band. See Mr. Woodis for any additional information.

Saturday Enrichment Program for High-Ability Learners

The College of William and Mary is offering an enrichment program this school year.
SEP is an academically challenging program with an emphasis on inquiry-based learning for students in grades K-12.
The program is not meant to supplant the regular school curriculum; rather, it recognizes the importance of allowing able youngsters to explore additional specialized areas of science, mathematics, humanities, and arts, that are not typically studied in the regular classroom.
