It has been a fantastic start to the 2018-19 school year. I have enjoyed getting to know our students and many of the parents as well. It is hard to believe we are nearing the end of our 1st quarter. Our students have either completed or are nearing the end of their first projects. I have been so impressed with our students’ collaboration and communication skills in preparing for and presenting their first projects of the year. I encourage all of our parents and community partners to get involved in project panels by volunteering a couple of hours or even a day toward providing student project feedback. It will not only benefit our students but it will also help you to better understand the impressive work your children are doing here at CCNTH.
The safety of our students/staff is the number one priority at CCNTH/NHS. With this in mind, I strongly request that our parent/guardian and student drivers follow all traffic rules with respect to drop off and pick up including abiding by our “No U-Turn” signs and also driving slowly through the CCNTH parking lot. New Tech Way and our parking lot are not ideal, and I have had several meetings to assess how we can make the situation better. There have been a few close calls, as a few students and teachers have almost been hit by accelerating cars in our parking lot and a few cars have almost been hit by the illegal U-Turns. It is imperative that we all drive slowly and carefully to keep everyone safe. When dropping off students on New Tech Way, use the yellow right-hand drop-off curb and then turn right, exiting on Titan Way until 7:40am. After 7:40am, please merge to the left hand lane carefully and loop through the CCNTH parking lot. If dropping off students in the CCNTH lot, please stay to the right when dropping off your student and then merge carefully to the left taking heed to the oncoming flow of traffic and students/staff crossing the parking lot. If dropping off students who have PE first period at NHS, it would be best for those students to be dropped off at the gym. Another drop off consideration is on Mallaugh where students can cross the pedestrian bridge to get onto campus. Thank you all for keeping our campus safe during these busy times.
On a lighter note, remember to keep updated with our school by liking us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and checking our website for other important updates.
I look forward to a wonderful 2nd quarter at CCNTH. Go Direwolves!
