Welcome to New Plymouth High School---Home of the Pilgrims!

Welcome to New Plymouth High School

danhullAt NPHS we believe that each student has the right to achieve his or her fullest potential. I believe that school principals have the absolute obligation to provide all kids the opportunity to learn and all teachers have the support to teach in a safe, nurturing environment that is focused on student achievement.

Communities and families are the integral component of every school culture. I am confident that our teachers at NPHS have the vision, work-ethic, commitment, and passion for schools to bring people together to create a dynamic learning environment for our students.

I feel we are very fortunate to be at New Plymouth and I feel that we have an outstanding teaching staff at NPHS who are passionate about student achievement.This year we will continue to help our students meet academic benchmarks and find post-secondary opportunities. We will all be working hard as a whole school to help our students achieve success. NPHS will continue collaborating to ensure that each student is meeting the mark in the classroom. The committed staff at NPHS will make our student achievement vision become a reality that can be measured. I am extremely excited to work with our students and staff and we are looking forward to an outstanding year. Go Grims!

NPHS Principal

FFA Update It’s been an interesting year for sure especially with the FFA cancellations and moving to virtual events and conferences. We still had a very successful year with 14 state FFA degree recipients: Kiernan Caldwell, Kenna Barker, Casey Arritola, Ashton Hall, Talon Painter, Karder Meckert, Julie Church, Colt Gross, Colton Hison, Grant Ethington, Maddie Oxnam, Dylan Worth, Harley Coburn and Ty Everson. We also competed in all available CDEs and LDEs within our district. We had so many great competitors in these competitions such as the following; Mackenzie Waters who won 1st in the Creed speaking contest and will move onto compete at the State Leadership Conference in April. We had a great year for our Parliamentary Procedure team who placed 2nd at districts, our team members were: Aislyn King, Kenna Barker, Caitlin Koonce, Kennedy Farden, Mackenzie Waters and Hadley Hill. Along with our competitors for the speaking LDEs, our speakers were Aisliyn King who did prepared and Taylor Hack who did Extemporaneous. Our Floral team placed 3rd with our team members being: Kenna Barker, Julie Church, Dylan Worth, Amaia Mendive and Caitlin Koonce.  The Idaho State convention was held April 8th and 9th virtually; being virtual we were able to let many of our green hands experience State Convention. Kennedy Farden also ran for a state office position, which we are currently still waiting on results. We had an exceptional time meeting in person for our annual Spring Banquet. We had many excellent members receive awards such as the following: chapter green hands, chapter degrees, and Chapter Proficiencies. Our Star Green hands were Mackenzie Waters and Tyler Potter; Chapter Stars were Caitlin Koonce and Kennedy Farden. Colt Gross was our District Star Farmer who represented us at State Conference, his SAE is working for Campbell Tractor where he does a variety of educational tasks and makes connections with customers. We finished our Spring Banquet with retiring and installing our new chapter officers they are as follows: President – Kenna Barker, Vice President – Aislyn King, Secretary – Kylee Howard, Treasurer – Amaia Mendive, Reporter - Mackenzie Waters, Sentinel – Tyler Potter, and Chairman – Ian Evers. 

Upcoming Events: The FFA greenhouse is looking great this year, our opening day sale is Saturday April 17th from 9am to 1pm we are open on all Saturdays until we are sold out. The hanging baskets are looking amazing as well as the six packs of bedding flowers, and garden fruits and vegetables. Our hanging baskets are $25 each, they make exceptional porch decorations as well as mother’s day gifts. The six packs are $3 each, we do ask that you pay with cash and/or checks. Please make checks made out to New Plymouth FFA. We cannot wait to see everyone!

Possible Summer Coding Opportunity for our students. 

I am the Program Manager for Idaho Codes - a collaborative computer science initiative with the Idaho Technology Council, the Idaho STEM Action Center, the State Board of Education, the Governor's office, and other Idaho stakeholders. We are working with Tracie Bent at the State Board of Education to let each school district know about the program, but I want to introduce myself beforehand. My only ask for each of you is to share the Idaho Codes program information with your colleagues, educators, as well as students and parents within your schools and districts.


Idaho Codes is a sponsored, summer computer science program for current 7th-12th grade students that offers coding and programming courses. Attached is a written overview of the 2021 summer program and here is a brief video promo as well: This program is available in every single school district in Idaho, either On-Campus or Online, and we encourage students to participate no matter coding ability, demographics, or geography.

Thanks to sponsors and donors, Idaho Codes is sponsored for the first 1,000 students to register. We have three curriculum providers with courses in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, REACT, and AWS Cloud Foundations. The summer program runs June 14th-July 23rd, Monday-Friday, and students can register at


We are also hosting a virtual Information Night for students and parents on Monday, April 5th at 6pm. Attached is a digital flier for the event and here is the direct link to join the Info Night:


Thank you all so much, and please let me know if you have any questions. I would be more than happy to help! I will follow-up next week with digital posters and fliers that your schools can use to let students and families know about Idaho Codes. 


With gratitude,


Sebastian Sturdevant
