Dear Parents and Students,
The 2014 – 2015 school year will be an exciting, challenging, fun-filled year at New Castle Sr. High School. I am honored to be the principal of our high school, and I am proud to be a part of our community of New Castle. I am truly looking forward to working with parents and the community to provide a quality educational experience for our students.
The focus of our school will continue to be providing each child with new challenges that will result in an extremely satisfying school experience. Academic emphasis on the core subjects will remain a priority, as well as providing an educational program that strives each year to attain levels set by the Pennsylvania Core standards. Instruction in the Arts, World Languages, Business, Family Science, Technical, and Physical Education complete the opportunities designed to develop well-rounded, prepared students that are able to meet the challenges of today’s ever-changing society.
The innovative technologies of our school offer hands-on learning experiences that greatly immerse students in their education experience. These technologies enhance lessons in an effective visual manner and bring a new level of excitement to each lesson and classroom.
Pennsylvania Business Week will take place during the week of September 15th this school year. Through this exciting program, students and educators will learn about economic system of our nation and the forces that influence it. Seniors are divided into companies that compete and are put through a variety of real life experiences: leadership development, team work, time management, problem solving, and social/people skills. Younger students in the school will experience the visually stimulating advertising and the hustle – bustle of the Business Week Evening Trade Show that will be held on the evening of September 18, in the New Castle High School Field House.
I urge parents and community members to join us at school activities and participate in our school programs, thus establishing a strong, positive partnership with the school. I look forward to working with you and your child throughout this school year, as I am confident that together we can provide a productive, safe learning environment that fosters student growth and success.
