Students to Perform in Holiday Concerts
In the upcoming weeks, students from NHE will share in the holiday spirit as they combine with other students from around the district performing sounds of the season. We would like to invite all NHE parents and community members to join in the fun. These concerts are free of charge and are sure to get everyone in the holiday spirit.
Please join us at the Central York High School for Grade 5 & 6 holiday concerts featuring the bands, choruses and strings for each grade level.
The Grade 5 Holiday Concert will take place on Tuesday, December 16 at 7 PM at the Central York High School. The Grade 6 Concert will be held on Wednesday, December 17 at 7 PM at the Central York High School.
Again, we are very proud of our students’ hard work in preparing for these upcoming concerts. Please join us in celebrating the achievement of our students.

Are you looking for FUN summer academies that offer both art and academic strands designed to meet the individual needs of gifted, talented, artistic and high achieving students? Then, check out the summer camp offerings provided by the LIU Summer Academy.
The LIU Summer Academy offers a wide-variety of courses designed to provide interesting and challenging learning activities for students residing in, or attending schools in Adams, Franklin and York counties. Reinstated this year, there are eligibility requirements for students interested in the academic academies, but all students are eligible to apply for the art academies.
The deadline for completed applications is January 30th. However, because a confidential teacher recommendation must be completed by all applicants and qualifying academic scores must be recorded by the school for those registering for the academic offerings, please submit your application to your child’s school no later than Friday, January 23rd to ensure that his/her application will be forwarded to the LIU by the deadline.

Mr. Youcheff or Mr. Livingston with any questions or concerns. We strive to keep the lines of communication open between home and school. Our email addresses are posted on the North Hills’ website, and we can be reached by phone at 846-6789. We would like to thank everyone for the continued communication.
Please review the "Attendance Information" in the 2013-2014 Student/Parent Handbook. As with most children, it is not unusual to miss days due to illness. However, when this occurs, it is necessary to have a BLUE excuse card signed by the parent or guardian stating the reason the student was absent. A BLUE card is also required for educational trips, preceded by the completion of the Educational Trip request form. This is part of the Pennsylvania School Law. If five days pass and a BLUE card is not returned, the absence becomes unexcused.
After 10 absences, a student may receive a note from NHE requiring a doctor's note for any future absence. If you child is experiencing a special medical problem, please contact the school nurse and submit a letter from your child's doctor pertaining to the medical condition.
If there are any concerns regarding attendance, please contact the school.
