November 5, 2020 Announcements

It’s a great day to be a Newberry Panther!
Here are the announcements for November 5th:
 
Students, don’t forget there is no school tomorrow…..Enjoy your day off!
 
SGA kicked off our annual food drive for Thanksgiving this week. Our goal is to feed 30 NHS families this year and we need your help! SGA has distributed boxes to every 1st period teacher with a list of items needed to fill the box. SGA will collect the completed box and bring another one. (Feel free to give extra items but the box will only "count" if it contains everything on the list.) The 1st period that collects the most boxes will win a gourmet breakfast!
 
The grading window for the first 9 weeks of this school year has closed and Report Cards will be available in your child's Portfolio in the Skyward Family Access on Thursday, November 12th.
 
ServSafe training will begin today after school in the Culinary Arts room with Chef Schwarz. Make sure you are on time!
 
There are still two weeks left of the after school CROP sessions (Tuesday through Thursday, 3:00 pm until 6:30 pm), which will end on November 19th. Please reach out to the Guidance Office if you are interested in having your child participate in these remaining sessions in order to make up missing credits for graduation.
 
Congratulations to our girls’ weightlifting team in their meet against Bell and Williston High Schools yesterday. Our 1st place winners in their respective weight classes were: Neveah Conyers, Sarah Holoway, Hollie Pabst, and Jakyria Stanley. Additionally, Danielle Oliveira, Leila Parsons, Hailey Tharp, Chandler Loveday, Shardae Paz, Tanna Ray, and Gracie Dexter all placed in their respective weight classes. Way to go ladies!
 
We want to wish our Lady Panthers Volleyball team the best of luck in their State semifinal match up against Bell High School this Saturday, November 7th, at 2:00 pm. Tickets for this game are completely sold out.
 
Parents! Please remember there is no school next Wednesday, November 11th, in observance of Veteran’s Day.
 
Today’s reminder:
Dress Code: Make sure your school attire is appropriate and not distracting. As the weather gets cooler, please remember that you are not permitted to wear pajama pants or bring blankets to school. Do not wear hats or hoodies in the buildings. Failure to follow the dress code guidelines may result in lunch detention.
 
Students, please remember to check your school email accounts everyday for important announcements and reminders. Remember, if you are having trouble or have questions about anything at all, turn to an adult. And please, if you see something, say something (www.getfortifyfl.com). Everyone believes in your success but “whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right --Henry Ford”, but most importantly, “Always remember, Shepp loves the kids!”
