Weekly Announcement - September 12, 2021
Hello New Tech family, this is Principal Wright with your weekly update!
Happy Grandparents Day to all of our New Tech Grandparents! We appreciate all of your love and support!
Everyone, please remember these important dates for this week:
Tuesday, 9/14 – Sophomore Parent Information Night at New Tech – start time 5:30 PM
Wednesday, 9/15 – Early Release All students will be released at 1:50 – there will be no after school activities or tutoring sessions. All teachers, faculty, and staff are scheduled to attend professional development. Please plan accordingly.
Thursday, 9/16 – Teacher Workday – No school for students
Scholars, please remember to check your DPS email, PowerSchool, Canvas, and Durham Tech students please include Sakai daily. These tools will help you stay up to speed on important information as well as grades, and assignment due dates. Organization is a key factor to success scholars. Therefore, I am asking you to please take some time to organize your week, include study time and time to complete assignments and submit assignments. If you need help with this task, please reach out to Ms. Walker, the school counselor, or discuss this issue in advisory this Wednesday.
Finally, parents, as your scholar plans to attend after school activities, please make sure he/she has transportation before or when the event ends. If your scholar attends a football game, please know that he/she is not being supervised after school at 4:00 PM until the game starts. This is not a safe situation and we strongly discourage it. Scholars are not allowed in the building to wait for a game to start. We are asking that you plan accordingly.
That’s all for now, 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.
Thank you and make it a great evening!
