The Board of Education and I would like to thank everyone that voted for the GO Bond Referendum on Tuesday. We are most pleased and grateful that once again New London School District voters demonstrated their support for our schools by approving the GO Bond Referendum. The much needed facilities improvements and additions will serve our community, and most of all, our students, for many years to come.
Since arriving in New London a little over five years ago, it has been our goal to improve the climate in, and the culture toward our school. Building and maintaining a strong positive culture is an ongoing process from year to year. I hope our passion and commitment to our school and community has been visible, but more importantly, contagious. We all truly care for this town, school, and the people who call it home.
Over the past few years, we have seen the passion and commitment from the students, families, and community increasingly grow towards the school and staff. Last year, during one of the most trying times in educational history, we witnessed this first hand. Everyone banded together and made what could have been the worst year in educational history one of the best.
Regardless of how you voted on Tuesday, we know that everyone has the best interest for every student in mind. The fact is, we are a vibrant and growing school district! Now the real work begins as we move to the design and construction phases.
Again, we want to thank our wonderful community for your continued support of New London Schools!
Yours in Education,
New London School Board Lindsey Porter, Jesse Howard, Tim Myers, Tasha Gipple, & Shane Mettler
Did you know that New London High School offers a wealth of concurrent enrollment courses? Our students are graduating with college credits before ever stepping foot on a college campus.
A recent report by the Iowa Department of Education shows that "[o]ut of the 17,508 high school students from the class of 2011 who earned college credit in high school, 75.5 percent enrolled in college immediately after graduating, and of those, 59.1 percent achieved a degree within 8 years. In comparison, 50.4 percent of students who did not earn college credit in high school immediately enrolled in college. Of those, 32.8 percent completed a degree or transferred during the same time frame."
Of this year's 2022 graduating class, we are estimating that 89% of our students will be leaving with at least some college credit--this includes credits in the trades; for example, New London teachers offer both technical writing and carpentry for college credit. We also send students to the SCC campus for additional training. The 11% not receiving college credit are also in intense training programs for life after high school.
ATTN PARENTS - Does your child need a dedicated space to complete homework? We have 6 adjustable height, uniquely shaped desks that are in great shape. Rather than have them sit in storage, we are offering them at no cost to benefit our students. They are located on the northwest side of the old tennis court and are available on a first come, first served basis. ... See MoreSee Less
While Chayce was picking out an afternoon snack, the rest of Mrs. Wenger's 3rd Graders were examining crayfish/crawdads. The class is getting ready to turn their scientific attention to turtles, caterpillars, stray cats and maybe even a manatee or two, it's hard telling what Mrs. Wenger will find at a Garage Sale or Goodwill (honestly she can find anything). ...
