Off to a great start at North

The 2012-2013 school year is off to a fabulous start at Terre Haute North Vigo High School. We would like to thank our parent volunteers who show up every day to help. We have parents selling milkshakes, running the bookstore, manning concession stands, calling sporting events, sewing costumes and uniforms, and more. We simply cannot be as effective without the efforts of our parents. If you have not had the opportunity to volunteer, please contact North, and we will find a parent club that is right for you. Again, thank you, parents.

We will continue to strive for nothing but the best academically for our students. Our goal is for each student to be challenged in the classroom.

We are passing more students than ever before on English and Algebra end-of-course assessments. Our SAT and ACT scores have also risen. Students are finding greater success on AP exams, and the majority of our students are in classes in which they may earn dual credit through either ISU or Ivy Tech.  

It’s time for another challenge and North is up for it. Students are excited to be able to participate in the canned food drive sponsored by Pepsi. Monetary donations may also be made. The school that earns the most points will be awarded $1,500. One point is awarded for each pound of food. Five points are awarded for every $1 donation. Terre Haute North will collect canned food and monetary donations in first-period classes through Friday. Please help us by sending canned goods or a monetary donation to school with your child. Free breakfast will be provided to the class that earns the most points.

All donations will be donated to local food banks. This is a true win-win for everybody.

Again, we are off to a great start this school year. We have had many successes up to this point, and we are excited about the successes yet to come.

Thanks to Mr. Tanoos and the School Board of Trustees for their support of our students and staff as we embark on this new school year.

— Robin L. Smith, principal
