Sunday Night Howl
Weekly Announcements sent every Sunday Night at 6pm
Good Evening New Tech Students and Families. This is Principal Martin with your Sunday Night Howl!
After what I hope was a nice break and Holiday for all of you, its back to school we go! We have THREE weeks before our month long winter break and there is a lot we need to cover.
First off, please save the date. On Thursday, December 7th we will have our Winter Showcase! This is a special night for all of our families to come and see what all of our students have been doing all semester in their Project-Based Learning Culminating Projects. We invite all parents, students, and community members to come and see the hands-on learning our students are engaged in every day at New Tech. You do not want to miss this event! Please bring cash so you can support our clubs who will be raising funds through food sales. The Winter Showcase will start at 5:00pm and will end at 7:00pm. We look forward to seeing you all there!
This Tuesday, we are taking our students to Sac City College for a tour of the campus. Students who are enrolled in Deaf Studies or College Success in the Spring were invited to attend this field trip. Field trip forms are due on Monday. We will be taking the RT bus to the college and we will be leaving the New Tech campus at 8:30am. Students who arrive late to school will not be permitted to attend the field trip. I will send a separate email to the parents of students who are attending this trip with further instructions.
Lastly, we still need some parents to volunteer to sit and watch our finals Mini DOL presentations. We want at least 1-2 parents in each classroom during finals. At New Tech, we do finals a little differently. Instead of the traditional pen and paper multiple choice exams, out students defend what they have learned through formal group presentations. During finals, students are REQUIRED to dress professionally. If you are interested in helping us with finals, please let me know through email and I will send additional information. Finals will be held on Wednesday, December 13th and Thursday, December 14th from 8:30-1:40. Please let me know if you can attend. Having adults in the audience provides students with a more authentic presentation experience.
This will conclude your announcements for the week of November 26th through December 2nd. Have a great week Timberwolves!
