Please join me in congratulating the Boys Varsity Tennis team who on Saturday captured their 4th straight State title by defeating Valdosta in the semifinals and Walton in the Finals. The Titan tennis team finished the season with an undefeated record.  To Coach Hunter and all the team members; we are so proud of your accomplishments!  And speaking of congratulations, Jared Dunn placed 5th in the State Track meet in the 110 meter hurdles. Jared’s time of 14.64 seconds sets a new Northview record!
 
As we enter the final weeks of school, please help us support your student as we focus on final exams.  It is essential that students be present for every class, on time and ready to focus.  I have been so fortunate to have a student body that is focused and on-task throughout the year; however, the temptation to relax before the job is done can be strong.  The final exam constitutes 15% of the final grade; it is a chance for students to greatly improve their course averages if they are prepared and focused.  To ensure that the proper atmosphere is maintained, please remind your child that any student whose behavior is in any way disruptive to the learning process will be sent home for the remainder of the school year and will have to return after Memorial Day to complete exams and turn in make-up work.
 
Final exams can only be taken at the scheduled times.  Teachers are not permitted to give early exams as that time is needed to assist students in preparation and review.  If there is a legitimate reason for a student to be absent during an exam day, please send a note to the attendance office requesting an approved absence.  If the student is absent due to illness, please call the attendance office and email his/her teachers.  Regardless of the reason, as long as a parent notifies the school of the absence, the student may make-up the missed exam(s) for full credit.  If possible, all make-up exams should be completed the week following Memorial Day.

Students who have lost jackets, shoes, watches, glasses, and so forth need to check the lost and found department located in the clinic.  We have a tremendous amount of good, unclaimed items that will be given to North Fulton Charities on Friday.  Locker clean-out will take place on Tuesday, May 19th.  Lockers are to be left empty at the end of the school day; students should bring only the items needed for their exams on exam days.  It is important that students turn in the books that they were issued!  Friends often will unknowingly use each other’s books; now is the time to start getting everything in order.  If any books are lost, the charges must be cleared with the office before records can be released.  If a lost book is paid for and the book is later found, the school will gladly issue a refund.
 
Exam days, May 20-21-22, are early release days.  Students will be released at 12:10; we will hold the busses until 12:40 for those who wish to eat lunch or have other business to take care of.  Those who do not ride a bus are free to leave at 12:10.  Students are not to bring backpacks, large purses or bags on exam days; such items will be confiscated and returned after dismissal on Friday, May 22.  This has been a great year, and if we all work together, it will end on a positive and productive note!
 
Ever Upward and Onward!

PARKING
Parking applications are due on Friday May 15th in the attendance office by 4:00 pm.   Applications can be found on line at the Northview website.   At the site you will find all the information about parking, rules, and deadlines.  The FAQ sections will answer many of your questions.  Do not wait until the last moment.  Incomplete applications will not be accepted. 


SENIOR EXAM EXEMPTION
On Friday May 15th, seniors may pick up and circulate their Senior Exemption and Checkout Form.  This form will be available before school on May 15th outside the attendance office.  After that it will be available in the attendance office.  Seniors may exempt their spring semester final exams if they meet the following criteria:
1.) 80 or higher average without honor points and without recovery
2.) No suspension, in-school or out-of-school, during entire spring semester

This form must be completed by each senior before they can walk.  Final transcripts will be held until this is done.  Students must turn their completed form into the counseling office on or before May 22.   Students who exempt exams and will not be in school May 18 and/or May 19, must have written permission from their parents to be absent these days.

Students who qualify may attempt an exam but will not be penalized if results lower the final grade.


ATTENTION JUNIOR PARENTS!!!
Your help is needed to chaperone Project Graduation (PG) on Sunday night, May 24th and through the night.  PG is an all night graduation party held at Jillian’s at Discover Mills.  It is an awesome night for the graduates which allows them to celebrate in a safe environment all night long!  Entertainment and food is provided for them the entire evening thru to the morning with a band, dj, hypnotist, games…everything Jillian’s has to offer is open just for our Northview graduates!!

Plus, there are gift drawings all night long – every graduate goes home with a gift which may range from a gift card to a television!!

The tradition is that Junior parents chaperone this event because, obviously, the seniors don’t want their parents around during their graduation party!

OUR KIDS WILL BE SENIORS NEXT YEAR AND WE WILL BE WANTING JUNIOR PARENTS TO CHAPERONE FOR THEM… please volunteer for a shift.  I need another 25 parents.

It is only 3+ hours.
11:30 pm to 3 am 
or 
3 am to 6 am. 

I know… it sounds terrible and you ask, how will I stay awake??
I’ve done it twice now and I promise that once you are there, you will have fun and be glad you had the experience!
Please email me today with your commitment.

Thanks,
Margaret Harris Barfell
Junior Parent Coordinator, PG ‘09
