Despite the recent heat, it has been great to have our students and staff back in school. Over the first 2 days, students met with each of their teachers at least once, took school pictures, and participated in grade-level assemblies. Overall, I was impressed by the energy of our students despite the weather being extremely hot. Below I have provided a link to school picture information as well as the opening school presentation.
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT will take place on Thursday, September 21st.This will begin with a presentation in the auditorium at 5:30 PM by the high school administrative team, and starting at 6:00 PM, parents and guardians will follow their student’s schedules.

At the end of August, former students Emma Low, Audrey Langley, and Claudia Cummings, were recognized for their work to create an interpretive “Tree Walk” at Atkinson Common. Receiving service credit while in high school, these students worked collaboratively with local environmentalists. They researched and designed the displays to identify many of Atkinson’s tree species and provide in-depth facts on each tree’s ecology and its impact on society. Their work will live on for years to come and allow others to learn about trees and their histories while enjoying the park. Thank you to Ted Boretti, ACES, and the city officials for partnering together to provide an awesome learning experience for our students.
As a reminder, NHS has a College and Career Center aimed at pairing students with local organizations and businesses to explore their own interests and passions. Depending on the type of experience, students can earn internship or service credit while gaining practical experience to guide their future decisions. It is our goal that every student graduates NHS having had a work, internship, or service experience.
