8th Grade Night (part #1) - February 28, 2023

  • 8th Grade Night Welcome Letter
  • Video to Watch Before Attending: Preparing to Choose Classes for NNHS


  • We have put together a program for the evening that we hope will give you a warm introduction to our school and answers to more specific questions you may have. In advance of the event, we ask that you take some time to review material prepared and shared on the Class of 2027 pages of the NNHS website. In particular, you should read pages 2 through 13 of Opportunities, our Course Catalog.  We highly recommend that parents/guardians and students attend this online event together to experience all that Newton North has to offer. Sessions will be recorded and posted later. 

    The evening begins at 6:00 pm with a welcome session that will be translated. You will hear from school leaders including: Principal, Henry Turner; Class of 2027 Dean of Beals House, Scott Heslin; Counseling Department Head, Beth Swederskas; and Vice Principal, Amy Winston.
