November 8, 2022 Announcements

It’s a great day to be a Newberry Panther! 🐾
Here are the announcements for Tuesday, November 8th:
Panthers, please remember there will be no school this Friday (November 11th) as we observe Veterans Day in order to honor military veterans of the US Armed Forces. For those who have served to protect our country, we thank you for your service!
With the formation of Tropical Storm Nicole in the Atlantic, and the subsequent Tropical Storm Watch in effect for Alachua County, the District will continue to monitor the storm’s status. We urge all our Panther families to stay informed and be prepared for whatever the storm brings our way.
The Junior SGA will meet tomorrow morning before school at 8:00 am in Dr. Bolejack’s classroom.
The Senior SGA will meet tomorrow morning before school at 8:00 am in Mr. Marlowe’s classroom.

All our Panthers are invited to participate in our yearbook cover contest. Students will design and draw a picture for our 2022-23 yearbook on a standard size sheet of paper (8.5” x 11”, white only). Students can also design a cover digitally and submit it to Mrs. Gennaro. The deadline for submission is Thursday (November 10th) either in person or by email to Ms. Gennaro (gennarotl@gm.sbac.edu). The design must use the theme “Mystery and Mayhem” and should use the colors black, blue, and gold (think of an old-timey detective agency). The student whose artwork is selected for the yearbook cover will win a free yearbook!
Our Annual Holiday Food Drive is still going on through November 16th, and we need your help! Each year, we try to fill boxes with items to provide Thanksgiving dinners for 30 of our Panther families. Each 1st period class has a box with a list of all the items necessary for the box to be complete. Feel free to put extra items in the box, but the box will only "count" if it contains everything on the list. We have a "Box Drive Banner" displayed in the NHS Commons Area to keep track of how we are doing in terms of our goal and the 1st period class that collects the most boxes will win a gourmet breakfast party!
Seniors, ads for the 2022-23 yearbook are now on sale. The deadline to purchase is Thursday (December 15th). Information can be found on the NHS website or you can see Ms. Gennaro for more information.
We still have ECF Chromebook laptops available for distribution to any NHS student. These laptops are equipped with 4G LTE, which will allow school-based internet access for homework and school projects. If you are interested in obtaining a laptop for your child, please contact Ms. Steele (steelesd@gm.sbac.edu) in the NHS Media Center as soon as possible.
Panthers, please remember that as the weather begins to turn cooler outside, blankets are not allowed at school. Also, you must still follow all dress code policies, including not wearing pajamas, slippers, or any type of head coverings. Only appropriate warm-weather clothing is permitted to be worn on campus.
We want all our Panthers to remember the Panther way to Success:
*Be Reliable - Maintain consistency with what you say and do
*Be Respectful - Show consideration of someone or something
*Be Responsible - Be dependable, keep promises, and honor commitments
Today’s Reminder:
COVID-19 Guidelines: The wearing of masks is optional on the NHS campus. Please continue to wash your hands, practice social distancing, and don’t share any items.
Students, please remember to check your school email accounts every day 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). “Always remember, Shepp loves the kids!”
