Senior Networking: College & Other Decisions

Plus Information on the Senior Internship Program

Tuesday, Nov 16 | 9:30 AM

As our seniors begin to submit college applications, now what? How will they cope with acceptances, rejections and make other important decisions? Dr. Elizabeth Ortiz-Schwartz, an Adolescent Health Specialist affiliated with Silver Hill Hospital, will engage us in a conversation on how to help our seniors manage the decisions process. All questions welcome!

Heather Bianco, NCHS Senior Internship Coordinator, will also be on hand to explain the Senior Internship Program.

EVENT LOCATION: Virtual via Zoom. Link to follow.

NEW: The Weekly Highlight!
Teacher Appreciation Day

Thanks to the support of our members, the PFA was able to provide an ice cream truck for all of our NCHS faculty and staff.  Smiling faces filled the front courtyard last Thursday as teachers and staff enjoyed a variety of frozen treats before heading back inside for a Staff Development Day. 

As we continue to cope with the challenges of the pandemic, this is one more way NCHS parents are able to show teachers how much we appreciate the difference they make each and every day in the lives of their students.  Thank you NCHS faculty and staff for all that you do!
