Class of 2020 Senior Parade (June 26)
NHS Senior ParadeJoin us as we celebrate the Class of 2020 with the community in a special Senior Parade. On Friday, June 26, the Norwich Police Department, in cooperation with the Norwich Fire Department, will escort the seniors as they drive through town. The parade will take place on Route 12 from the Hale Street traffic light north toward Aldi's. Parade start time will be approximately 9pm, rain or shine!

Seniors are invited to decorate cars and cruise (safely) down Route 12. Simply follow the lead car and parade route as designated.

Family members are asked to line the streets and sidewalks with posters, pom-poms and noisemakers! (Parents are only permitted in the parade if driving a vehicle for an NHS Senior. In case of rain, parent drivers should come to the high school gym parking lot at 9pm.)

Everyone attending the parade should wear a mask and practice safe social distancing.

Let's send our 2020 graduates off in style!


Graduation Week has arrived!   We continue to provide weekly updates right to the end of the school year to stay in communication with our students, parents and caregivers.  The most recent message is focused on everything to do with our graduation plans for the Class of 2020. Click on the link that follows for graduation guide... an entire booklet explaining the details of all of our upcoming events.

For our seniors, planning for graduation continues following the announcement from the Governor's Office allowing 150 people to be in attendance for the ceremony.  Based on the feedback collected in last week's survey from our seniors and senior parents, NHS will hold five separate ceremonies to allow a maximum number of family members to attend.  Please review the Letter to Students (Seniors) that follows for more information regarding dropping off devices and school materials as well as graduation details (caps and gowns, rehearsal, ceremony, etc.)

Links to our weekly letters and updates will remain available here on the high school webpage.

Letter to SeniorsNHS has several things in the works to celebrate the Class of 2020 over the next several weeks. NHS will present the "Senior Showcase" by featuring a senior a day, share photos and future plans on "Decision Day", and light up the stadium at special times during the week. 

A link to the letter explaining our Senior Showcase and Decision Day is available below. Seniors are asked to complete the form at your earliest convenience to share your plans after graduation, favorite memories and a photo. (Please make sure all images submitted are school appropriate and include first and last names.) The letter also explains the meaning behind the lighting of the stadium... it is our hope that everyone will take a moment each week to reach out to an NHS senior. 

We look forward to seeing your photos and favorite memories!

NHS Junior Shadows Senator in Albany
Edwards Shadows Senaotr Akshar at CapitolNHS Junior, Houston Edwards, had the great opportunity to shadow Senator Fred Akshar at the Capitol in Albany. As a student shadow, Houston was able to join the Senator during a legislative meeting and observe the voting process firsthand. The day's agenda also included a Legislative Session, media taping and a tour of the State Capitol.

Houston had originally requested to shadow Senator Akshar during a future visit to Chenango County. The Senator graciously turned that request into a unique experience, and Houston traveled to the Capitol to live a typical day in the life of a state senator!
