With the partnership program, students with a B or better average can take two college courses and earn up to 8 college credits per semester at Northwestern Connecticut Community College. These credits can be used towards your degree at NCCC or be transferred to a number of four year institutions, saving you hundreds of dollars in tuition costs.  Interested students should see Ms. McLeod or your guidance counselor for more information. Registration deadline for the spring semester is November 15.

2013 YEARBOOKS:
The 2013 yearbooks are in; if you ordered a copy you can pick it up at the high school main office. There is a limited number of extras books if you did not purchase one you can still do so for $65.00.

STUDENT PHOTOS & ID PICTURES RETAKES:
DATE HAS CHANGED TO OCTOBER 7 will be the retake day! It is important that ALL students in grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 have their pictures taken, even if they are not purchasing photos. These photos are needed to update student ID cards, used in Power School, and also used for underclass photos in the Yearbook. Also, photo ID cards are now required for entrance to the SAT test. THERE IS NO COST for this. Students pay only if they choose to purchase a package. Please encourage everyone to have their photos updated as their appearances often change dramatically over the summer! FORMS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE MAIN OFFICE. Please also note the forms must be handed to the photographer at the time photo is taken. For the seniors, these ID pictures are not to be confused with their formal senior portraits. They should still get an updated ID photo taken for school purposes. Please remind students that appropriate dressed is required—no hats, tank tops, low cut blouses, etc. October 7 will be the LAST day for retakes!!

ROBOTICS:
The robotics team will start their fall sessions beginning this Thursday. The team meets on Thursdays from 5-7 pm at the robotics garage next to the track field. For more information; stop at the main office.
