News and Announcements
Have a great Thanksgiving Break! Rest, relax, enjoy good food and family, and we will see you on Monday, November 27.
In an attempt to encourage greater participation in athletics and extracurricular performing arts, Nordhoff has started an initiative to allow student-athletes/artists to request no credit and grades for their involvement in these programs. This petition is intended to help students who may have a GPA greater than 4.0, are involved in multiple programs whose practices / rehearsals may conflict, or students who may have work conflicts.
For students who have an overall GPA greater than 4.0, a non-weighted letter grade in athletics or performing arts can actually lower their GPA--even if they earn an A grade. As well, some students may not be able to attend all practices or rehearsals if they are enrolled in multiple programs that practice or rehearse at the same time. With this petition, they can request a modified schedule. Finally, we recognize that some students have work or family obligations that make them unable to attend on a regular basis.
Any student who is interested in seeking flexibility with athletics or performing arts can download the form on our athletics page or from the link below. The petition will also help create communication between student, their family, and those teachers / coaches to establish participation expectations and scheduling.
