NWHS Announcements: 09/24/20




  • ATTENTION ALL STUDENTS! There are a lot of Homecoming announcements coming your way! For starters, first round of voting for homecoming has begun. Homecoming Shirts are now for sale through this Sunday! You will find the link to the online store in our Homecoming Newsletter. The newsletter will have tons of important info about the week. For example, you must register online for every event you’d like to attend. If you don’t pre-register, you will not be permitted to attend.
  • Good Morning 10th graders.  Quick quiz: are you on track for your dream career?   Here’s a fact: 99% of all new jobs created since the great recession went to workers with at least some college.   College is your ticket to success, whether you choose a bachelor’s degree, an apprenticeship program, an associate degree or a short term certificate.  Use this week to explore your career interests and find out what kind of education you need to get there.  Visit indianacareerready.com to learn more.
