    WE KNOW THAT THE PANDEMIC AND THE COST OF TRAVEL HAVE MADE IT HARD FOR STUDENTS TO VISIT COLLEGES, so here is an opportunity to virtually visit hundreds of colleges. College Board is bringing colleges to you with BigFuture™ Days college fairs. They have two events left this school year, so sophomores and juniors can register today. Students can chat directly with hundreds of college admissions reps and current college students. College Board is also hosting college planning sessions about important topics for sophomores and juniors like financial aid, scholarships, and more.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE CHANGES TO THE DAY TO DAY OPERATIONS OF THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE (for the duration of the 20-21 school year). If your student will arrive after class starts, please ask them to go directly to the classroom. The teacher will note what time they arrive and mark their attendance accordingly. If your student is more than 10 minutes late to class, they will be considered absent. If they are less than 10 minutes late, they will be marked late. Please call the office at 206-252-3684 and leave a voicemail regarding your student’s tardiness. Voicemails are checked daily. To determine if your student’s absence will be excused please visit the attendance and truancy policy link located here: https://www.seattleschools.org/departments/attendance_and_truancy/faq
    If your student will need to leave school early, please notify the attendance office via email no less than one day in advance. For emergent dismissals only, please call the front office at 206-252-3680. Please also leave a message on the Attendance office answering machine at 206-252-3684 so that the absence may be recorded properly.

    NATHAN HALE’S CHAPTER OF FCCLA has been busy these last few weeks attending the State Leadership Conference (virtual). The nine students who participated were responsible for leading state-wide meetings, evaluating projects, and competing in events. Our Hale team earned gold and placed 2nd in the state for their Entrepreneur project, presentation, and portfolio. Congratulations to these leaders on a successful event.

    THE WESTERN GOVERNORS' FOUNDATION IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE ITS 6TH ANNUAL "CELEBRATE THE WEST" REGIONAL ART COMPETITION challenging high school students to create works inspired by their state. Here is a link to this year's contest: https://westgov.org/celebrate-the-west Students are welcome to submit artwork used for other contests or assignments, as long as entries also depict our theme of “Celebrate the West.” Please check the guidelines on the website for what art media is allowed. It is easy to enter- students only need to email a photograph of their artwork along with the entry form found on our website. Depending on Covid-19 restrictions, we most likely will again be conducting our final round of judging online in May 2021. We will keep you and your students posted.
