New Castle Junior High School
Welcome Back!

Welcome Back from Mrs. Morell


Dear New Castle Junior High Parents and Community,

As principal of NCJHS, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for a great year at the Junior High.  We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways, filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and part of our NCJHS family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic and social-emotional abilities in order to be well-rounded students capable of meeting the needs of today’s world.

The Junior High years are a period when young people begin actively seeking a sense of purpose and place.  It is our job to provide them with positive opportunities while keeping them engaged, challenged, and supported.  We invite and encourage you to be part of this vital time in your child’s education by joining us for activities and contacting us when necessary.  Your active participation is key to the success of your young Hurricane during these Junior High years.

This coming year, we will continue to focus on student relationships and high expectations for all.  Additionally, we will focus on School Culture. We all will thrive in a positive atmosphere, especially our students.  The slogan for the Junior High will now be “Every Student. Every Day. Whatever It Takes” (Jimmy Casas, “Culturize”).

I am honored to serve as principal of NCJHS. It is a privilege to lead our students through the many challenges and opportunities before us and welcome you to another year in the journey of the education of our children. I extend an open invitation to be an active partner in your child’s educational experience.
