New Century Spring Open House

The PTSA invites all families to the Open House/Club Fair on Thursday, March 10 at 6:00. Meet the teachers who sponsor the many clubs at New Century and learn more about the extracurricular and tutoring options for your students. Next year's New Century families are invited, too. There will be door prizes and a food truck. Enter through the back doors near the theater off of Quietdale.  The SGA is sponsoring a student dodgeball game on the same day at 4:30 in the gym.  Feel free to stop by and cheer on your favorite team.

Order Your Yearbook

Only 45 copies of the 2021-2022 yearbook remain unpurchased. Pre-order now to reserve your copy by going to the Balfour website. In addition, if you have school-related photographs that you would like to submit for consideration by the yearbook staff, please upload them for review.

Registration for 2022-2023 Courses

Completed registration forms for all returning students are due to Mrs. Manuel on Monday, March 7th.

Attendance Note

COVID absences do not count against a student’s attendance. If a student is unable to attend class due to COVID concerns (such as exhibiting COVID symptoms or being excluded), please email Ms. Lightfoot to let her know so attendance can be marked appropriately.  All classwork will be posted in Schoology so students can keep up with their schoolwork. Please send all notes for absences and check-outs to Mrs. Lightfoot.

ACT English Tips

Out of the four answer choices, three of them have something that is totally wrong about them. Only one answer is 100% correct. Instead of trying to find the one right answer, find a reason to eliminate three answer choices. Remember that even a single word can make an answer choice wrong. Every single word in each answer choice is put there by the ACT for a reason. If a single word in the answer choice isn't supported by the passage text, you need to eliminate it, even if the rest of the answer sounds good. Learn more tips from this article.
