As many of you may be aware, we have three expectant moms on our staff. Our counselor, Mrs. Martinez left for maternity leave November 17th, Mrs. Winegarner will start her maternity leave beginning December 12th , and finally Mrs. Wolf will begin her maternity leave on February 23rd. I am working with the District to insure that we have qualified substitutes during the maternity leave times.
As this semester comes to a close, I would like to thank the entire New Technology High community for your support and kindness during this time of change. Despite the changes, New Tech High has continued to thrive. We have been selected as a National Demonstration Site for the New Tech Network and as a national filming site for instructional videos. We are honored and proud to be among the few sites in the nation to have these accomplishments on our school resume.
Have a great winter break.
As always, it is a great day to be an Penguin.
