NOTE:  I hope all students are doing well as we continue to maintain a physical distance while still trying to maintain a supportive and encouraging learning environment.  If you have any issues with your classes, please be sure to contact your teacher promptly. If you have any issues with technology, feel free to reach out to Ms. Roby. 

 

SUMMER READING

Huntsville City Schools is very pleased to share information regarding the Summer Reading Program, a district-wide effort to encourage reading for enjoyment.  Reading during the summer months is an important opportunity for students to stay engaged and to develop a life-long commitment to reading and learning.

The Summer Reading program information is posted on the HCS webpage for students and parents and can be found by following these directions:

  • Hover over “Academics” tab
  • Go to “Curriculum” section
  • Click “Summer Reading 2020 for Grades 6-12” link

 

AP/Dual Enrollment Course Options for 2020-2021

To learn more about the AP/Dual Enrollment program, attend the AP/Dual Enrollment Credit Assurance Parent Interest Meeting via Zoom on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 5 pm. Please email Tyra Pickens for the Zoom meeting ID link and password. AP, dual enrollment, and blended classes in US History, World History, Biology, and English Language may be available at New Century next year depending on the number of interested students.  Students must get superintendent approval to take more than one dual enrollment core class during a school year.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Manuel.

 

RESOURCE LIST

Ms. Hendon has put together an online resource list for students, parents, and teachers to use during this time. Check the Media Center page and look for the Blended Learning Links.

 

PTSA

The New Century PTSA board wishes all the students, teachers and families safety and good health during these unusual times.  It is our highest priority that everyone remains healthy while continuing to finish out the school year.

The PTSA is required to complete the year by nominating, voting and implementing a new 2020/21 PTSA executive board. We currently have several board positions open which include hospitality and membership - if you are interested in serving on next year’s board please email Allison Kowalczyk. The New Century board is an excellent way to stay informed about the school and the district, while serving to bring excellent programs to the school.

 

TEACHER AVAILABILITY

All teachers have office hours from 9:00 a.m. until noon each school day which means they will be accessible by email or through Canvas during this time.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to teachers if you have questions.  Teachers may set up online discussions to assist multiple students at one time. 

 

LAPTOP AND MATERIAL RETURN

At this time, schools are not allowed to collect materials including laptops and textbooks from students.  As soon as the Stay at Home order is relaxed, we will notify you of how items can be returned to the school.  Thank you for your patience.

 

MAIN OFFICE HOURS

We are required to limit the number of people in each school building at this time.  Email is the best way to reach all of us.  We will do our best to address all your questions and concerns in a timely manner while keeping the health and well-being of our employees in mind.
