Well August is nearly upon us and a new school year is about to begin. I hope your summer went well and you were able to spend some quality time with your family and friends. A new school year presents opportunities for various beginnings – new classes, new students/faculty/staff, new courses, new materials and books, new ideas, and a new addition to our school! When you come back to the campus – whether as a returning student, staff member, or visitor – the biggest change you’ll notice at the start of the fall semester is the completion of our addition. The $10 million project, which began early in the spring of 2020, has included the addition of 7 classrooms, a kitchen, cafeteria, music room, PE facility, and new locker rooms. The majority of the work will be completed by August 16th, although landscaping will continue into the fall, as will the re-location of our playground. During August, work is expected on grading, landscaping, and installing irrigation on the site; completing concrete work; planting new grass; and installing gates to close access to our playground. We have encountered some minor obstacles which may impact how we transition into our new addition. We have tile that is projected to arrive mid-August. This tile is to be installed in our hallways and cafeteria. If everything goes as planned, we should have the installation completed before school starts. If not, we will have to work around tile installers for about a week. The other issue we are having is back-ordered desks and chairs. The projected delivery is mid-September. Fortunately, we do have enough odds and ends in storage to work around this issue. It has been a long 16 months and I want to thank our faculty, staff, students, and community for helping us through this project and tolerating the inconveniences associated with this project. We look forward to seeing you at registration on July 27th, 28th, and 29th. The first day of school is August 25th. See you soon!
The 9th Annual Wehri Football Camp, for grades 7-12, is scheduled for July 26th and 27th in Mott starting at 6:00 PM running until 8:00 PM. Please contact Coach Zachman at 701-218-0004 if you are interested in attending. The bus will leave New England at 4:30 PM.
Cross Country season is right around the corner. We will have a preseason meeting Monday Aug 2nd, for all athletes and parents. Please meet in the science room at 6:00pm. If you are thinking of being dual-sport athlete, please come as well. Open to all Jr High and High School Students. Practice will officially start Monday Aug 9th.
