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 Pilgrim Pride Weekly Update - 3-31-2020

                                                            

“Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.”  – Marian Wright Edelman


General Information NPHS Parents, Teachers/Staff Members    03/30/2020

Staff/Advisor Phone List

NPHS Staff (AKA Advisor) will actively participate in student calling, mentoring, and monitoring the learning for our students. Advisors will try to communicate three times a week with assigned students on our phone list. The individual advisor will provide specific support, coaching, and mentoring to help students find success in our current learning platform. Advisors will guide interactions and keep the conversation focused on completing lessons. Advisors provide support, and non-judgmental guidance to help our students find success in this challenging and changing learning environment. Teachers will be supportive of the students who are in their groups.

Although educational services will be provided at a distance, teachers and staff will be available to answer questions and provide support using different platforms such as Sociology, Google classroom, Google Meet, email and phone. 

While staff will be continually providing instruction, addressing concerns, and answering questions, from 10 am - 2 pm (Mon-Fri), teachers will be available more readily to answer questions in need and provide structure for their classes.

NPHS will continue to communicate with teachers as more information becomes available. We ask for your patience while navigating the logistics and challenges that may come up.  

Teacher Expectations:

Expectations and essential questions to ask students during your discussions with students via email or phone:

ü  The best ways to provide educational services for all students. Expectation is that we will have two way conversations with our advisory groups.

ü  Internet access/availability- If a student needs a Chromebook, please share this with the main office.  

ü  Share information about NPSD providing meals to students.

ü  Answer and forward any questions or concerns to specific advisor/instructor that everyone has been assigned.

Teachers will be contacting students and preparing their instruction, whether that is online or paper packets. We would prefer to have all students online. We have set up a student homework distribution area outside the main office by the bell. Each teacher has a designated box outside by the New Plymouth bell where students can pick-up work between the hours of 10:00 to 2:00. Teachers will provide packets for students who do not have access to a computer. This is a vehicle to make that happen. 

NPHS staff members will contact advisory students and provide instructional activities ready by Friday 04/03/2020.

“Grab-n-Go” lunch distribution for children up to age 18 will begin March 30, after Spring Break. Those lunches will be distributed between 11 am and 1 pm at the New Plymouth Elementary School and at the Sand Hollow Country Store 11:30 to 12:00 Monday thru Friday. We appreciate our Child Nutrition team for making this happen

What to expect the rest of the week: 

  • Continued student/teacher contact and other forms of communication.
  • Delivery of instruction in both paper and online form.
  • Adjustment and communication to meet parents’ and students’ needs and sharing any changing events as we adjust to “school at home.”
  • NPHS has created a comprehensive list of all of our students who will need one to one devices from the high school. If you have a student that needs a Chromebook to use at home, please contact the main office during the hours listed above.  Parents needing to pick up a Chromebook will be contacted by the main office before the end of the week for pick up information. 
  • Our goal is to provide instruction to all of our students.  

“Learning starts with failure; the first failure is the beginning of education.”– John Hersey
