Dear New Tech Parents,
The 2014-15 school year is off to an exciting start. I want to thank the parents and students who have stopped by to welcome me to the New Tech High Family. Our first day of school was picture perfect. Students and staff participated in activities that reunited returning students, welcomed new students, involved all in team building and got all of us fired up the the new school year. We ask all New Tech parents to contribute 15 hours of service to our school. For more information about the opportunities to get involved and volunteer, Parent Connection Night is the place to start.
I look forward to meeting more of you at the two events listed below.
Monday, August 25th: Parent Connection Night. Please join us from 5:30 - 6:30 for a Hotdog BBQ, hosted by the Penguin Parent Club. Bring a blanket and picnic on the grass. Learn all the ways you can meet your 15 volunteer hours, that so richly enhance our school. If you have some favorites, you will be able to sign-up on the spot! This will be followed by the first Penguin Parent Club meeting and a short training on how to use Echo. Childcare will be available. If you are unable to make it for the BBQ, the Parent meeting will begin at 6:30 pm.
Monday, September 8th: Back to School Night. There will be an optional Echo Training session from 6:00 - 6:30 pm. You are encouraged to bring your own computing device if you have one. Back to School Night will officially begin at 6:30 pm in the Cyber Cafe. You will meet all of your child’s teachers and learn information for this year.
Communication with you is very important to us. Stay connected in the following ways --
The New Tech Parent Bulletin is published twice a month. We use a “Robo-Caller” that sends a phone call and an email to you, letting you know that it has been newly published. If you don’t receive these calls or emails, please contact Mrs. Cherrington, our Registrar/Attendance clerk and update your contact information.
Follow us on Twitter. Twitter is informal and fun, and notifications go straight to your cell phone. For anyone without internet or email, Twitter is a great substitute. Twitter is published every time the Parent Bulletin is published.

We have Dell Netbooks available for students who need them. Your students can sign up for a netbook in the office. Once the student and parent have signed the contract, we will begin the process of setting up a netbook as a loaner for the entire school year.
I am looking forward to seeing you at Parent Connect and Back to School Nights.
