    Start with Hello Week at NHS Start with Hello Program!
    In an effort to make NHS an even more friendly and positive environment, students and staff began the "Start with Hello" Week.  To get things started, students wore name tags and personally greeted students at the entrances.  Classes participated by creating short videos with "welcome messages".   Each day during the week of September 23, a different activity will be done to keep the student body motivated and positive.  Start With Hello Week is a nationally recognized as a way to stay focused on inclusion for everyone and fostering positive relationships.  
    Freshmen Mentor Program Mentor Program for Freshmen
    Student leaders have helped to organize a mentor program to help our freshman class get acclimated to the high school.  On Mondays, our ninth grade students meet in small groups with student mentors.  Upperclassmen share information and advice on different topics including a student go-to list for helpful people in the building, "things we wished we knew", and the importance of getting involved in extra-curricular activities that are available each year.  
    Seniors Paint NHS Parking Lot Seniors Paint the Parking Lot
    Students from the Class of 2020 have spent the last several Sundays painting the parking lot at NHS!  With rollers in hand, they have beautified one parking space at a time in the student lot with true artwork, students' initials and company logos/slogans.  It is expected that this fun class activity will become a new NHS tradition!

    Norwich High School has approximately 600 students in grades 9-12 where class size averages between 18-23 students. NHS offers a variety of courses including honors, Advanced Placement, numerous electives and college level courses through SUNY Morrisville, Tompkins Cortland Community College and Project Lead the Way through the Rochester Institute of Technology.
