Weekly Announcement - December 1, 2019

Great evening New Tech families, this is Principal Wright with your weekly update!

I hope everyone had a wonderful break. A huge thank you to our own Samia Powell for her extraordinary representations of New Tech as the November Durham Public Schools’ Student of the Month. Keep up the great work Samia!

Parents, please call Ms. Hyman tomorrow at 919-560-9183/dial 0 to let her know what day you will be available to assist with final exams as a proctor from 8:45 AM until 1:00 PM. We need proctors Friday, December 13th; Monday, December 16th; Tuesday, December 17th; Wednesday, December 18th; and Thursday, December 19th all from 8:45 AM until 1:00 PM.

Everyone, please mark your calendar for these important dates:

December 2nd/Staff Meeting

Everyone, only about 9 more school days until exam time! Make every period everyday count. Let's Scholar up New Tech! As we continue to work hard to move our school from a performance level “C” school to a performance level “B” school, let’s make it a week of A plus Attitudes, A plus Attendance, and A plus Academics! Do not make excuses New Tech; make it happen!

I look forward to seeing each of you this week 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!
