It’s Homecoming week at New London-- an exciting time for our students! The NLHS Student Council has been hard at work, as always, and they have created an exciting schedule for the week. We will start our festivities off on Sunday night with a kickball tournament between grades 9-12. During the week, there are special dress up days, a parade, powderpuff football, boys’ volleyball, a big game, and a dance to conclude the week. We know that with these events the excitement is high, however, we know that sometimes students take Homecoming to another level. At no time does the school condone any behaviors that don’t positively support our mission and goals. Please help in reminding our students that they can have fun without causing problems for others.

While the focus is usually on the students and the events that are taking place at school, we also remember that this is an important event for the entire community, especially our New London alumni. We are looking forward to seeing former students this week—from those who have been away for a few years, to those who graced our halls just a few short months ago. As our newest graduates have begun to spread their wings and learn about the world at large, we are hoping that they also find time to stop by and say hello. This is your homecoming too!

The idea of homecoming is to welcome home those who have moved on to college, a career, or to the military. We certainly want to extend warm wishes and hospitality to each of you returning to New London this week. It is important that you know how proud we are of your accomplishments, and we would love the opportunity to catch up! We are also interested in knowing how well our school prepared you as you took the next step in your life journey.

We hope you have the chance to see the improvements we have made in our schools during your visit. We are proud of the many projects that we have been able to accomplish over the course of the last several months and years. These improvements are a shining example of how proud the entire community of New London is in its school system, and is part of the reason why we want our homecoming celebration to be a true community event. Our facilities will be open for the community and alumni to tour on Friday, September 28, 2018, from 4:00 – 6:00 prior to the start of the football game at 7:00.

To all those individuals who helped with projects this summer and the years past, thank you! Whether you were a volunteer, an employee, or a contractor, your efforts have been much appreciated. You worked with an unforgiving timeline and your diligence has paid off. The district facilities look great and I think we all agree that the improvements that were made have been well worth it! If your contribution was as a taxpayer, we can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate your support. Without your help, we would not have facilities which prove, every day, to our students how much we care about their safety and well-being.

For those who are seeing these improvements for the very first time, welcome home!

Go Tigers,

Chad Wahls
Superintendent

Sophomores have been preparing for the year of World Literature by watching the TedTalk called "The Danger of a Single Story." This gets them thinking about the stereotypes we all fall back on too easily. As a reflection, each student wrote a stereotype that isn't true about themselves. #NLTigerPride ... See MoreSee Less

Odd Couples is the theme for Henry County Conservation’s annual night hike. It will be held Monday, October 8th from 6-7:30 p.m. in front of the Oakland Mills Nature Center. This TV game show theme features carnival-style games while learning about nature! Keep in mind– this is a new format from years past and the theme may not be what you are expecting! Who knows what you will learn at the Newly WEB Game activity or at Habitat Improvement?! After the first station, participants will go at their own pace. All ages are welcome as this is an educational and fun event– it is not scary. Kids must be with an adult and prizes will be given at each game station. Reservations are not necessary. Activities will be held inside the nature center if inclement weather. This is a free event. #NLTigerPride ... See MoreSee Less

Notice: School Calendar Change!

Every Wednesday the staff at New London participates in professional development. Recently we have identified an opportunity for our staff to continue their learning on Tuesday, October 16. This day was originally designed to be a student contact day, but it will now be changed to a Teacher PD day and students will have October 16 off from school. The student contact day will then be made up on January 14, which was originally scheduled to be a Teacher PD day, so students will have regular school on January 14. We truly apologize for the change in our calendar, but we are excited about the learning opportunity for our staff. Thank you in advance for your flexibility.
