"Today we learn, tomorrow we lead."
Greetings Titan Family & Community,
What a great day to be a Titan! We have kicked off our celebration of the Class of 2016 college acceptances. We are recognizing seniors throughout the spring on their college acceptances. We are so proud of the accomplishments of our outstanding students of the Class of 2016.
It has been a great winter for our school. We had 255 students earn Honor Roll, twelve students achieved straight “A” status, and 205 students earned perfect attendance for 2nd quarter. We celebrated our student’s success at the Scholars Reception and Straight “A” Breakfast. Congratulations to our students.
As we look forward, we have some upcoming events to highlight the great things happening at New Town High School. Our Chorus Program and the Echoneers will have their Gospel Concert in honor of Black History Month, our AVID program will host a National Demonstration Visit, our Professional School Counseling Department will host College Knowledge Night, and our Winter Sports teams will compete at local, regional and state playoffs. We are a gearing up for a great spring!
In preparation for next year, students completed their course registration for the 2016-2017 school year. Our students registered for more rigorous courses than ever in school history by increasing our enrollment in honors, Gifted & Talented, and Advanced Placement Courses. Our new course offerings this fall will include Computer Science honors, Computer Science AP, Environmental Science AP, Steel Drums, and Interactive Multimedia Production (IMP) program.
In April, grade 11 students will take the new SAT as part of BCPS SAT Test date. This is a great opportunity for our students to take the SAT as they prepare to be College and Career Ready. As we continue our journey from good to great, we continue our action of investing in a culture of deliberate excellence. We are committed to our vision to be among the highest performing schools in Baltimore County Public Schools. Our partnership with parents and guardians and community members supports this vision. Please check our website and follow us on our school Twitter accounts for regular updates and scheduled events.
