Principal's Message


Greetings Titan Community,

What a great 1st quarter we had! This month, we celebrate the accomplishments and outstanding performance of our students over the course of the first marking period at our December 5th Scholars Reception. I am happy to report that over 300 New Town students achieved Honor Roll status for 1st quarter, and we are exceptionally proud of their accomplishments, dedication, and diligence. As we look forward, our goal is to increase our student achievement through this recognition and see many more faces at our next recognition ceremony at the end of 2nd quarter.

We also continue to celebrate excellence at New Town High School through our arts program. Our Dance Troupe held their Winter Concert last week, and over 100 Titans performed to 26 songs displaying their skills, techniques, and interpretations of each song. The event was well attended and we congratulate Ms. Schiaffino and the Dance members for an outstanding concert, and look forward to seeing the big things Mr. Ambush and Ms. Harris have in store for us at the Winter Band and Chorus Concert this week.

On November 24th, 2014, we welcomed students from Sudbrook Middle Magnet School to our building. The visit provided an opportunity for our future Titans to explore, learn, and discover all of the wonderful offerings we have here at New Town High School. Great job by Ms. Mondell and Ms. Rollins in facilitating the trip with our colleagues at Sudbrook and showing prospective students what it means to be a Titan.

In a few short weeks, we will start the course selection process for the 2015-2016 school year. As we prepare students to be College and Career Ready, the selection of courses is a vital component to our students’ preparedness for college and career. We will continue to offer the same rigorous courses we always have, but we will also introduce new expanded course offerings for our students. As parents and guardians guide students through the course selection process, please keep the focus on courses that will prepare students for their post-secondary plans. Our school vision is to be the highest performing and best school in Baltimore County. Our goal is to ensure our students are College and Career Ready and prepared to compete on the national stage. The foundation for this preparation is the course selection process.

As we head to the holiday season, we remind parents and guardians to activate their BCPS One account. This invaluable tool will assist parents with monitoring student academic progress, communicating with teachers and staff, and obtaining information. It is our goal to ensure success of every student and that every child can be successful when provided high expectations and appropriate support.

We extend our sincere appreciation to our community members and partners, parents and guardians, teachers and staff members for making New Town High School a great place for our students to learn and grow.  We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season. “Today we learn, tomorrow we lead!”

Regards,
Kevin L. Whatley
