Congratulations to the new NAHS board! President- Julia Borges, Vice president- Brooke Chapman, Secretary- Samantha Lopes, Fundraising- Sydney Anderson, Publicity- Sarah Bresky, web masters- Michaela Bellisle and Deven Pande. 

We are very happy to bring forth our new mission statement and learning expectations. As part of our work to continuously review what we do at EWG High, our staff worked on updating our mission and learning expectations to better reflect what we want for our students when they leave EWG.  They have been accepted by our School Improvement Team and the School Committee recently and we are very happy to share them with you. Beginning next year, and with the class of 2021, a 10 hour community service component will be part of our graduation requirements. We will explain more about the 10 hour requirement going forward. 

Some of our students took a  trip to the RI Convention Center this past Friday (10/14)  to see Body Worlds Vital.  Art and Science came together to see this very interesting exhibition. According to the teacher, the students were incredible- prepared, polite, and enthusiastic. Their maturity and curiosity set them apart from the other two school groups there. They mingled with other viewers, and even answered questions posed by other schools' kids.

Parent conferences are this Thursday 10/20 from 6-8 and Friday 10/21 from 7:30 -11:15.  Please reach out to the teachers if you have not received an appointment. 
**there will be a few groups holding fundraisers in the foyer during conferences. As always, they appreciate your support.

Spirit week is next week!! The order of days is as follows:

Monday is "Merica" day - students wear their red, white and blue

Registration for Spring 2017 Courses in the Advanced Coursework Network is now open. I am excited to announce they have moved to an online system at Students who visit will be directed to this site when they choose the Spring 2017 registration tab. Both sites include a short video for students to review to get acquainted with the registration process should they need help.  

Enjoy the beautiful week!
