Welcome Back from Mrs. Morell
Dear Students, Staff, Parents and Community Members:
Welcome to New Castle Junior High School for the 2017-2018 school year! I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful summer. The NCJHS team is greatly looking forward to working with each of you this school year. This summer, we have worked diligently to assure that this school year is a positive and successful endeavor for our students.
The beginning of the school year is right around the corner, and it is with great anticipation that we welcome you and your student to our school. Whether you are returning, or this is your first year at New Castle Junior High, we are excited to connect with you and your student so that we can support the needs and goals of all our learners. The start of school year has always been an exciting time for me. With it comes the opportunity to set new goals, make new friends, and develop new habits which will lead to success.
Junior High is a vital bridge between elementary school and high school. It is also a period when young people, often for the first time in their lives, begin actively seeking a sense of purpose and place. It is our job to provide them with these opportunities, while also keeping them engaged, challenged, and supported. All of our children are gifts with limitless potential. Through the efforts of our entire school community, we can help them to develop their own unique skills and talents and prepare them for continued success beyond their adolescent years.
The NCJHS offers many support systems for our students. A strong relationship between home and school is beneficial to both academic and social growth. I encourage you to take advantage of all opportunities to be supportive of your child.
I am honored to serve as the principal of New Castle Junior High. It is a privilege to lead our Junior High through the many challenges and opportunities before us and welcome you to another year in the educational journey of our children.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to call, email, or visit me with concerns about your child. Together we can commit to making this upcoming school year a great one!
