IT’S CRUNCH TIME!!!

FINALS ARE NEXT WEEK

12/13-12/16

All scholars are required to take their final exams for each class during finals week.  There will not be a test make-up after break, so if your scholar misses their final during this week, they will receive a zero.  

Here are some tips to ensure you have a great start to each day through the week of finals:

🚩 1. Review your study notes.
Use the night before for simple revision. Don’t look at anything new, review the study notes you have created during your study sessions over the past few days.

🚩 2. Revise topics one by one.
Work your way through your notes, covering topics one by one to ensure you understand the material. If you don’t, go back and find clarity.
🚩 3. Don’t study too late.
Late night cram sessions aren’t a very effective way to study. It may seem like you’re making the most of your time by studying until the last minute, but by not giving your brain a chance to rest you’ll have a harder time remembering the information you studied.
🚩 4. Eat a good healthy dinner.
Giving your mind the brain power it needs is important if you want to do well on your test. That means eating a good meal the night before.
🚩 5. Prepare for the morning.
Gather all the materials you’ll need for your test the next day. Make sure you have extra pens, pencils, erasers, and any tools you need (like a ruler or calculator). Pack everything into your backpack THE NIGHT BEFORE.
🚩 6. Get some exercise.
After spending time reviewing for your test, get some exercise by going outside for a short walk or a bike ride. Getting a little bit of exercise will help reduce any stress you are feeling and recharge your brain.
🚩 7. Give your brain a break.
Take some time before bed to put away your study notes and relax. Read a book, write in a journal, or talk to your family. PUT DOWN THE ELECTRONICS. This will help you wind down before bed, making it easier to get a good night’s sleep.
🚩 8. Get a good sleep.
One of the most important things the night before a test is to get a full night’s sleep so your brain can remember what you’ve studied. Make sure you go to bed at a decent time so you can wake up on test day feeling refreshed and well-rested.
🚩 9. Set your alarm.
Set your alarm so you don’t oversleep the morning of your test. DO NOT BE TARDY. Give yourself some extra time in the morning to eat a healthy breakfast and get ready for the day without feeling rushed.
🚩 10. Know that your instructors love you and are rooting for you through each day. You’ve got this!

Thankful-Thoughts

Through the whole month of November our scholars focused on gratitude, and we filled this tree with all of the things they are grateful for. With this, our scholars donated a penny for each leaf. Our goal was to raise $200 for the Maricopa Food Pantry. Together we have almost doubled our goal and were able to donate $340 to the Maricopa Food Pantry.

We are so grateful and amazed by the love and willingness to share of our scholars.  This is a great way to go into December with our focus being Selflessness. We hope that all of you have a wonderful Holiday Season filled with love, service, and good will towards men.

Toy-Drive-2021-scaled

NHS is holding a TOY DRIVE next week.  They will be donated to the Maricopa Food Pantry, which puts together meals and toys for families in need.  There will be a box in the front lobby where you can drop the new or gently used unwrapped toys.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Safety-First-scaled

As we drop off and pick up scholars at school, we need to respect our neighbors.  They have been reporting to law enforcement the speeding in the neighborhood, blocking driveways and blowing through stop signs.  All traffic laws should be obeyed on and off campus.

Arrive-Early

Plan to leave home sooner in the morning to get your scholars to school on time.  The closer you arrive to the start of school, the more traffic there will be.  Scholars can be dropped off as early as 7:20.  We do have a strict tardy policy and know that traffic can slow down starting at 7:40.  Please plan accordingly.  

REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR LUNCH!! 
NO OUTSIDE FOOD IS ALLOWED

No-Outside-Food

We have a large number of forgotten lunches that are being dropped off at campus.  Please limit this as much as possible and remind your scholars before they leave the house, to grab their lunch.  NO OUTSIDE FOOD (fast food or delivery) is allowed.  The school does not provide a lunch if your scholar forgets.

Friday-Appointments
All appointments including dentist, doctor, orthodontist, etc. should be scheduled on Fridays or after school.  Fridays are the perfect day since we have it off and your scholar(s) will not miss class time.

PHOTO ID REQUIRED

TO SIGN-OUT YOUR SCHOLAR

PHOTO-IDIf you need to sign-out your scholar, you will be required to show your ID and we will make a copy of it for our records.
