BUS & SHUTTLE INFORMATION
Published: Thu, Aug 25, 2016, 05:40PM CDT

Good afternoon,

We are hearing from many of you that buses this week have been a challenge, so we are trying to get as much information as possible for you.

1. For learners who ride the bus to CHS in the morning and then take the 8:20 shuttle to NTH@C: If your bus is late to CHS and you miss the 8:20 shuttle, we have been told by transportation that you are to notify your original bus driver and have them bring you to NTH@C.

2. Attached is a copy of the bus routes for NTH@C in the afternoon.

3. If a learner misses a shuttle during the day at CHS to come back to NTH@C, they are to report to the receptionist at the horseshoe (in the front of the school near the cafeteria).

Please do not hesitate to let us know if any other issues arise and we will try to help resolve them.

Steffany Batik
Principal of New Tech High @ Coppell

GIFT CARD DONATIONS BEING ACCEPTED FOR SOUTH LOUISIANA FLOOD VICTIMS
Published: Mon, Aug 22, 2016, 06:56PM CDT

The floodwaters that swept through south Louisiana a few weeks ago have created an emotional and financial deficit that is heart-wrenching – 13 people are dead, 40,000 homes were lost, and 30,000 people are currently living in shelters. We have many families, past and present, who have family and friends experiencing so much loss. NTH@C never hesitates to step up and extend a hand. If you would like to contribute to the Baton Rouge flood recovery, we are collecting gift cards this week, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. These people are needing so much – the gift cards can be for Walmart, Home Depot, Target, Bed/Bath/Beyond, Amazon, Gap, etc. One of our New Tech parents, Jason Osterberger, will be traveling to Baton Rouge on Thursday to make the delivery of gift cards from our NTH@C family. If you have any questions, please contact Brandy Osterberger at bosterberger@coppellisd.com.

Please drop off all gift card donations to the front office or to Brandy Osterberger in Room 110.

School starts tomorrow!!!! I am sending this email earlier than usual so that you have the information you need for tomorrow. I have bell schedules, shuttle schedules, and first three day schedules attached to both this email and as a link in the newsletter. Please let me know if there are any questions.

Your facilitators and the rest of the campus staff have been working all week long (and in a lot of cases, all summer long) to prepare for the great year that we are going to have together. The school has felt empty without our learners and we can’t wait to have them back!

Have a great back to school week!

Meet Our New A. P. - Raheela Shaikh
Published: Sun, Aug 7, 2016, 11:26AM CDT

I am so excited to be the new Assistant Principal at NTH@C! I am joining Coppell ISD with 10 years experience in education in Texas and Dubai, UAE. In Dubai, I was the Humanities Coordinator (KG-12) in a private American Curriculum school. I taught English to grades 8-12, AP Language, AP literature and electives. I was also a Senior Advisor, Student Council Advisor and MUN teacher. While teaching in Dubai, I trained as an Apple Professional Development Trainer, and was a Principal Intern for 2 years. In 2015, I relocated to Texas and joined Frisco ISD as an AP English teacher. This summer, I was given the amazing opportunity to become a part of the Coppell ISD community and I can’t wait to get to know all the wonderful students, staff, and parents.

My family is also excited about this new opportunity. My wonderful husband and I have been married for 16 years, and have a beautiful 12 year old daughter, who will be joining Coppell Middle School East and can’t wait to be a proud Bronco! We look forward to being active members of the NTHS@C family!

  • How will I pay for college (scholarships, financial aid etc.)?
  • Will I qualify for Merit Aid?
  • What can I do to stand out from the other college applicants?
  • What can I do to increase my chances of getting into the colleges on my list?
  • How much will my ACT and/or SAT scores matter and should I take them again?
  • What is involved in completing a college application?
  • How do I write a compelling essay?
  • How do I create my college resume?
  • How do I get “great” recommendations from my teachers and/or counselors?
  • What does a college application timeline look like?

PERMISSION TO PUBLISH 2016-2017

NTH@C PTSO must have your permission to include your student’s name and/or photograph in publications such as the PTSO newsletter and website as well as to submit your student’s name and/or photograph for publication in local newspapers.

Unless PTSO has your permission, your child’s participation in sporting or fine arts events or academic accomplishments will not be publicized by PTSO.

School Supply Fee - 2016-2017
Published: Sun, Aug 7, 2016, 11:26AM CDT

NTH@C uses many different materials in the project designs. One can walk into any classroom and see anything from foam board to popscicle sticks to wood. It is easier for the school to provide these crazy materials for you than you having to rush to Wal-Mart at midnight to pick it up because your learner forgot to tell you. The $55.00 fee covers the cost of these types of materials as well as helps defray the cost of field trips, talent show, and other school-wide events.

NTH@C strongly suggests learners purchase their own CASIO GRAPHING CALCULATOR to use throughout high school and college math courses. Other optional items may also include a calendar system and a flash drive to move documents between computers.

Pay your 2016-2017 school supply fee online at the PTSO webstore now.

Please note that this is a school mandated fee and PTSO is merely assisting in collecting the fees. It is NOT a PTSO fund raiser of any kind.
