Semester Course Exams & Mid Marking Period

December 15th, 2016

We are approximately at the mid point of the current Marking Period. Please be sure to stay up to date with your student’s in-progress course grades by logging on to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Should you need assistance with your Infinite Campus Portal account, please contact Ms. Blanchette at 908 362 8211 x 1139.

Semester courses that conclude at the end of the second marking period may require exams. The school is not switching from it’s regular schedule to a special exam schedule at the end of January. Semester course exams will therefore be conducted during regular class time.

Any student who misses an exam due to absence must produce a doctors note to the front office in order to have the opportunity to make up the exam. Students who do not produce a doctors note, and are absent from an exam will receive a zero grade for that exam. Please be aware that the exam grade counts toward 10% of the final course grade.

For full year courses and semester courses that conclude at the end of the fourth marking period in June, exams will be conducted similar to previous years on a special early dismissal exam schedule.

Refillable Hydration Stations

October 14th, 2015

The Water Bears are a team of five students from North Warren Regional High School that are dedicated to making a difference within their school and community.  Danielle Pergola, Kelsey Yarzab, Cole Palatini, Zack Cullen, Julia Wetzel and faculty advisor, Jennifer Trezza are working on a proposal for the 2016 Lexus ECO Challenge.  Their goal is to install refillable bottle hydration stations throughout the school.  If they win the challenge, they will be awarded $2000 to spend towards two stations.  Hydration stations have been installed in many offices, companies and colleges and are making their way into elementary, middle and high schools.

After surveying the student body and faculty/staff on water bottle use, the initiative is expected to reduce disposable bottled water use by 25%.  Less bottled water use will help minimize landfill growth, allow for better waste management, reduce fossil fuel usage thus contributing less to greenhouse gases as a school.  The survey results also showed that better hydration will result for students and staff in North Warren Regional High School.

Please email jtrezza@northwarren.org if you’d like to help with the Water Bears initiative to bring refillable water bottle stations to Blairstown.
