Weekly Announcement - September 15, 2019

Super Sunday New Tech Scholars!

Scholars, check PowerSchool weekly and communicate with your teachers regarding their expectations. Remember, grades and feedback on progress reports and report cards should NOT be a surprise to you and your parents. All teachers have tutoring so please make sure you attend tutoring if you need help! 

Also scholars, please check your New Tech email weekly for important information from Ms. Davis the counselor, Ms. Davis, the Durham Tech Liaison as well as Ms. Culver-Daye, the On-line facilitator.

I look forward to seeing each of you Monday in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing, with the right people. 

Remember… to be the best I begin by thinking I am the best!
