Evan Strong

Dear Secondary School Families: 

Happy Friday! This week, some of our sophomores, counselors, and I paid a visit to Questar III’s Robert Gibson Technical School in Troy. Students interested in participating in Career Tech next year selected two 45 minute orientation programs for the morning. Programs include cosmetology, HVAC, Auto Tech, Construction, Heavy Equipment, Criminal Justice, and Culinary Arts. Check out the website below for more information about Career Tech opportunities. Thank you to Principal Defazio and the staff at Robert Gibson Technical School for hosting this wonderful opportunity for our students.


January Regents Exams: January Regents and semester exams will be administered from 1/24-1/27/23. Attached you will find the most up to date schedule and information for students and their families. All classes will be held on a regular bell schedule throughout the week. 


Graduation Caps and Gowns: Seniors can now order caps and gowns through Jostens. Orders can be placed online at www.northwaygrad.com  A representative will also be in school on Wednesday, February 1st in the main lobby during lunches.

Class Rings: Attention Class of 2025! Your turn to order your custom class ring and receive your FREE Tamarac Performance Hoodie will be Wednesday, February 1st in school during lunches. Packets were passed out at school, so please see the Mrs. Danckwerth if you didn’t get one so you have your disposable ring sizer to figure out your ring size. The representative from Jostens will be setup in school to collect orders with a min. $100 deposit (or pay in full/use JPay payment plan). Save time by designing your ring online at www.jostens.com and printing out the order form to bring to school. All ring orders come with a FREE custom performance hoodie ($65 value!). We’ll get your size for the hoodie when we take your order. Orders can also be placed online at www.jostens.com. As long as you order online by Feb. 3rd, you’ll be able to add the free hoodie to your cart when you check out.
