February is a short month with our winter break right in the middle but still a busy one. The course selection process will soon be underway. Teachers will be making placement recommendations, students will be making important academic decisions, and counselors and students will be meeting to discuss options. The 2022-2023 Program of Studies will be available for viewing during the week of February 3rd. It is always a good idea to review the Program of Studies with your child to better understand course offerings.
The NCHS Scholarship Foundation has been in existence for 53 years! The ultimate goal of the NCSF is to help as many students as possible with financial assistance for their undergraduate education. Seniors planning on enrolling as full-time students in a college or university (including technical and vocational schools) may apply. Eligible students may qualify to receive aid for a maximum of four undergraduate years. The College Scholarship Service assesses each applicant’s financial status. The basis for the Foundation’s decision is the information reported in the financial aid form and analyzed by the Service. The Foundation uses the same data that colleges employ in making their awards. All decisions are based solely on need alone. We hope the entire community will participate on March 26, 2022, in the NC Color Drop which will benefit the NCSF.
For more information on how you may apply for a scholarship, please visit the NCSF website at http://www.nchs-sf.org. Please be aware that applications must be submitted by May 6, 2022. If you need further information or have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your school counselor or Mrs. Granite in the School Counseling Department.
Thank you to our parent community for always giving their time continually making the school a better place for our students. I look forward to seeing you at one of the many NCHS sporting events, VPA productions, or PFA events.
All the best,
Bill Egan, Principal
