Welcome Back! Plane Departs NMHS on August 7, 2017 at 8:30 AM

Welcome Back Jaguars!  

I hope that you have had a rejuvenating summer vacation and remain as excited as we are about the upcoming school year.  This year marks our seven year anniversary and we continue to realize our mission of providing a meaningful learning experience that develops the character, academic ability, and talent of all students. Last year proved to be an absolutely amazing year for NMHS as we celebrated our largest graduating class in our school’s history, nearly 400 Jaguars (90%) earned a high school diploma, our Fine Arts Magnet Chorus Program earned both state and national awards for its exemplary performances and was featured in various productions around the country.  We had several wrestlers, swimmers, and our Lady Jaguars basketball team reach state qualifying rounds, while several other athletic programs received honorable recognition for having a successful season.  Our student activity clubs continue to expand as NMHS became the first school in the district to host and place in Atlanta’s Urban League Debate Spring Tournament. Is easy to get excited about the great things that our students are doing and we are extremely proud of the young adults that they are becoming!

This year promises to be a year filled with rich opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways to continually improve. As we prepare to take flight on this amazing 180 day journey, we commit to our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with a variety extracurricular clubs and scholastic activities, performing arts productions, and athletic competitions that are all about developing the character, academic ability, and talent of all students.

We look forward to a positive and productive 2017-2018 school year! Please accept this letter as a personal invitation to join us at school activities and events whenever possible and “stay in the know” about your child’s assignments, assessments, grades, and career interest. We want… we need… we value your participation in your child’s education as your engagement creates the bridge that helps your child become a well-rounded and productive citizen.    

Again, we welcome you to another great year at New Manchester High School! Please pack your backs and make sure you are flight ready, the plane departs on Monday, August 7, 2017 at 8:30 AM.   

Thanks for taking a few minutes to review our website “Calendar” and “Latest News” for important upcoming events. Don’t hide your Jaguar Pride!


Best wishes,
