The latest announcements from the Principal, PTSO, and NPS...

Athlete of the Week: Laura Hernandez, Girls Gymnastics

Senior captain Laura Hernandez is a true leader and role model for the Girls Gymnastics team. Despite being sidelined with an injury early in the season, Laura was a constant source of motivation and positivity for her team members and pushed them to be the best gymnasts they could be in every meet. She brought a new sense of camaraderie to the team this year, as she always made sure every member of the team was included in and out of the gym. Laura was determined to get back into the all-around competition before the end of the season, and when she did, she placed second at the league meet and qualified for the state individual meet! Laura will be a huge asset as the team heads into their sectional competition and will be greatly missed next year!

1. Students must register with Total Registration, print two copies of their registration, keep one copy for their records and take the other copy to Mrs. Beth Astone in the Main Office between 2PM and 4PM. Monday through Friday. They also need to take a check made out to Newton South for the cost of the exams and with AP written on the memo line. Each exam is $95. Only one check is needed to pay for all exams.

2. Students must sign up for one of the pre-administration sessions listed on Total Registration. During the session they will fill in ID info on their answer sheets. The dates of the pre-administration sessions are: April 3, 5, and 27 in Cutler Commons during lunch.

During the pre-administration sessions, students will receive their AP number, which they will need when they want to see their scores in the summer. They need to keep the number in a safe place. If they lose it, I will not have a record of it.

3. Students who may want to take an exam for which we don’t offer the class should email me. We are not offering all exams. If we are giving an exam for which we don’t offer the class, students must pay for the cost of hiring a proctor.
Registration ends March 17, 2017. Exams must be paid for by March 24, 2017. If students do not pay for their exams on time, I will not order an exam for them.
