Good Afternoon, Triumph Families!
Thank you to all of our parents who participated in conferences last week. We enjoy the opportunity to meet with parents and discuss the progress and achievement of our students. The parent school partnership is so crucial to the academic growth of students. If you weren’t able to make conferences last week, it is not too late to schedule an appointment with your teachers.
I also want to thank all of our parents who have taken the parent satisfaction survey. It is always our goal to have highly satisfied parents, and we use this survey by looking at the aspects of our school that parents report are successful or areas we need growth in, to goal set and action plan for current and future school years. The survey also allows NHA to see how we are doing as a school. I am proud to say we have been in the top 12 schools in the company over the last 2 years. If you haven’t already done so, please take the time to complete this short survey. If you have any questions, please contact the main office. On a side note, although we value the parent survey, I also value feedback and suggestions year round. If you ever have concerns or ideas for improvement throughout the year, I will always make time to talk with parents. Feel free to contact me anytime!

All 8th grade girls, mark your calendars for Thursday, March 16th. We will be offering a FREE women’s self-defense class after school at 3:30pm. Having 3 daughters of my own, I understand the need to teach our young ladies how to look for, prevent, and defend against potential threats. We have partnered with PKSA of Monroe to put on this important training. Look for a flier and sign-up sheet coming home in the next few weeks. We will also open up this opportunity to any moms of our 8th grade students who would like to attend.
Last but not least, attached to my weekly email you will find a letter concerning student internet safety. It is so important for parents to know the threats that exist in our virtual world today. Along with this information, we are currently working with law enforcement officials to hold a parent internet safety training. If you have any questions, you can contact me or Mrs. Waldron.
That is it for this week! I hope you enjoy the long weekend and I will see you on Tuesday!
