Welcome Back!

Welcome Back from Mr. Litrenta



Dear Parents and Students,


As principal of New Castle Sr. High School, it is my great pleasure to welcome everyone back for another promising year!  The teachers and staff are excited to have our students back in the hallways and classrooms for a never-ending journey of growth, learning, and achievement.


The 2018 – 2019 school year will soon begin, and in the blink of an eye we will realize the year is half over.  I look forward to strengthening working relationships with parents and community members in order to promote our educational programs and evening events.  The “STEAM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math) infused mindset of the NCASD will continue to be an area of focus within our high school setting.  The goal of New Castle Sr. High School is to provide each student with a unique set of experiences that will prepare them for the future. Academic emphasis on the core subjects is a priority, as well as providing an educational program that strives to make our students “College and Career Ready.”


The “Motivation Station” area of our building houses classrooms that focus on Graphics, CAD (Computer Aided Drafting), Engineering (PLTW – Project Lead the Way Curriculum), and Robotics.  The Motivation Station area also showcases a Maker-Space Room and a Fab Lab (Fabrication Lab). Students and teachers in grades 7 – 12 will have an opportunity to show off their technologically-based learning/projects at our STEAM Showcase, which will be held in April.


I am proud to serve as the principal of New Castle Sr. High School.  I believe our community is one in which parents, teachers, and students work together to foster relationships that will enhance successes for all stakeholders!  Once again, welcome back! AND, let’s make it another fun filled year of success at Ne-Ca-Hi!
