Parent Teacher Conferences

Hello Newark High School Community,
Our Parent Teacher Conferences are: Tuesday 10/24 from 4-8 pm and Thursday 10/26 from 3-6 pm. We are trying to make our conferences as productive as possible. So, we are asking you to call and schedule a specific time with your child’s teachers. This will allow staff to be prepared to maximize your conference time together.

You can contact the teacher directly or Suzanne Galmarini in the Guidance Office to schedule your conference times.

Teachers will have a 30 minute dinner break sometime between 5:30 – 6:30 on Tuesday. These times are blocked out on their Tuesday meeting schedule.

Walk-ins are welcome, but anyone with a scheduled appointment will be seen first.

We look forward to seeing you during these evenings as we work together to support your children to the best of our ability.

Thank you for all your support!
Jim Still – Principal Newark HS

Mindful Moment

Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. Read more »It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence. And it is fragile. It can be blackened by fear and superstition. Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom. Today on this Friday the 13th, let us have some fun with it,but always remember it is what we believe that shapes our lives.
