Northern HS 2 Hour Delay Monday, October 6th
There is a two hour delay for Northern HS on Monday, October 6th, for Teacher Professional Development. First hour will begin promptly at 9:40 am.
Starting in the 2014-15 school year, students will now track, electronically, all their volunteer/service hours in their FHPS student Naviance account. High school staff will no longer be tracking student volunteer hours for the purpose of bestowing awards on graduates in recognition of total hours reported.
Teaching and Counseling staff support focusing on the quality and commitment to service learning and not simply the overall time spent. This change in the collection and tracking of student volunteer hours reflects this philosophy. Students will be counseled on recording their volunteer experiences in their journals and resumes through Naviance and elsewhere.
