 NMS HOMEWORK PROCEDURE UPDATE:

New Homework/Classwork Procedures for 2nd Semester 2016

 

For students that do not complete their homework or classwork assignments a zero will be assigned to that grade. In addition, the following steps will be taken to help our students fulfill their school responsibilities successfully:
  1. Day 1-Teacher Warning

  2. Day 2-Parental Contact by School Personnel

  3. Day 3- After School Detention given  for missed assignment

     

    The completion of the assignment by the end of After School Detention will result in the removal of the zero; however, if the assignment is not completed the zero will remain.

    This homework procedure is in addition to the County Board Policy concerning excused absences.

Academic Scholars Offered in Middle Schools
 
 
 

As part of our mission to educate and empower all students to be college and career ready graduates, a strengthened and highly rigorous program for our high-achieving students has been implemented at the middle school level. This program, known as the Academic Scholars Program, began in the 2014-2015 school year. Academic Scholars Program provides a framework of learning which encourages students to become creative, critical, and reflective thinkers.

Offered in all four academic classes in the 6th and 7th grades for the 2015-2016 school year, and adding 8th grade in the 2016-2017 school year, the Academic Scholars Program provides intellectual and creative challenges to help students become skilled problem solvers and critical thinkers. In addition, the program incorporates project-based learning to give hands-on opportunities for students to learn, fostering the development of skills for communication, understanding, and team building, qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century.
