Special Invitation to Come Help for a Worthy Cause
Published: Thu, Jan 19, 2017, 01:35PM CST

Dear Parents and Learners,

You are getting a special invitation to come help us do something fun for a worthy cause. Please come to the art room to help make Valentine’s day boxes for children that are critically ill this Thursday Jan. 19th and next Thursday Jan. 26th. We will be in the art room between 4:05 and 5:00 pm.

Check out their website: http://hopesseed.com/ to see the faces of these beautiful children.

Also, it will count as community service hours for learners.

Here is more information from Katelin, a learner who has been touched by this effort:
We are working with Hope’s Seed in order to create Valentine’s Day Boxes for medically fragile and terminally ill children. I have created a sign-up genius list to help aid us in collecting art supplies, shoe boxes or even donations. If you have anything to add please let me know. Please share with anyone you can!
Thank you so much!

—Katelin -inspired learner

Thank you for anything you can do to help. We need a ton of shoe boxes, cute stickers, scrap booking goodies, wrapping paper. Here is a complete list of things we are needing———-sign-up genius list

Mardi Gras
Published: Tue, Jan 17, 2017, 02:25PM CST

Parents and Community Members:

New Tech High @ Coppell is hosting our biennial Mardi Gras festival on February 25th, 2017. Learners and staff have been working towards soliciting with businesses and community partners to find tangible items or monetary donations to have items to auction off for the live and silent auctions. We would like to reach out to the community to see if any members are willing to donate any items that we would be able to use in the live and silent auctions. Items such as air miles, box seats to a certain venue, a golf lesson at a country club, or any gift cards or tangible items. We are striving to surpass our goals this year and with your generous collaboration we would be able to do that.

Thank you for supporting New Tech and supporting Mardi Gras in the past. Please contact Michael Kennington (mkennington@coppellisd.com) with any donation that could help support this event.

Session 1 will be held on Monday, February 6th from 7:00-8:00pm in the NTH@C Cafe. You will learn how to maximize your high school experience and begin your college search. We will answer questions like:

  • How can I prepare now to get into the college of my choice?
  • What are my college options?
  • How do I find the college that’s right for me?
  • How important is a college visit?
  • How will I pay for college (scholarships, financial aid etc.)?
  • What can I do to stand out from the other college applicants?
  • How can I increase my chances of getting into the colleges I want to go to?
  • What are colleges looking for in their applicants?
  • What do I need to know about ACT and SAT testing?

Session 2 will be held on Monday, March 6th from 6:00-7:00pm in the NTH@C Cafe. This session will give you an overview of the application process including completing the application, developing your resume, recommendations, the essay(s), deciding on Early Action, Early Decision, or Regular Decision, and more. We will answer questions like:

  • How do I write a compelling essay?
  • How do I build and create my college resume?
  • How do I get the best college recommendations?
  • What does a college application timeline look like?
  • Do I need to take the SAT/ACT again?
  • What do I need to do to apply for scholarships?
  • What do I need to do to let a college know I have accepted or declined their offer?

Learners, get started now so that you have plenty of time to devote to this important next step in your life. Please make plans to attend one or both of these workshops. It’s never too early to start thinking about college. We hope to see you there!

Important Dual Credit and TSI Information
Published: Mon, Jan 16, 2017, 09:38AM CST

Sophomore Learners,

As you know, one requirement for graduation from New Tech High @ Coppell is the completion of 4 measures of college readiness (a combination of dual credit courses and/or scores of 3 or better on AP exams). In order to begin taking dual credit courses you have to take the TSI Exam (or meet other eligibility requirements found HERE). We will be offering the TSI exam on campus Wednesday, March 1st, at 9:05am. ALL Sophomores will be taking this exam. Below are tasks that need to be completed before learners can take the TSI. These must be done by February 17th:

1. All sophomores will need to do the college application for dual credit and get your college ID number.
2. If you don’t get a college ID number, you will need to go to North Lake’s admissions office (Irving Campus) and have your application processed by the admissions staff.
3. Once you have a college ID number, you will need to set up your eConnect Account and do the TSI Pre-Assessment Test (located within your eConnect Account). When you complete the TSI Pre-Assessment, you will received a “Confirmation Page,” which will show your name, college ID number, and how you scored on the Pre-Assessment.
4. Once you get the Confirmation Page, bring that to Mr. Kennington and you are ready to take the TSI. This and all of the above must be completed by February 17th.

If you have any questions throughout this process, then please e-mail, call, or go see Mr. Kennington on campus. DO NOT wait until the last minute. Get this completed as soon as possible.

Stuff a Backpack (Not Just Your Stocking) for Educational First Steps
Published: Sun, Dec 11, 2016, 06:30PM CST

We had a great time serving at Educational First Steps on our Wonderful Wednesday. To help ease the holiday stress felt by the thousands of children and working-poor families served by EFS, we are asking for NTH@C’s help with filling backpacks with educational toys, books, games, and activities that encourage learning with family during the holidays for the 4-5 year old children in their nationally accredited partner centers. Please consider donating age appropriate things that are small enough to fit into the backpacks which are roughly 14 inches high and 9.5 inches wide. Items can be dropped off in the front office between now and December 14th.

Below are some ideas for what kinds of things to put in the backpacks. Dollar Tree is a great place to find these things!

· Books

· Pencils

· Puzzles

· Coloring books

· Activity books

· Crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc.

· Stickers

· Card games (Go Fish, memory/matching card games, etc.)

· Play Doh (mini containers)
