Important info from School Board Chairman Ryan Sawyers reveals the stakes around the May 6 Board of County Supervisors meeting that will decide if funding will support the unanimously-passed 2016-17 School Board budget for educating 88,000 PWCS students. Click for the facts
We all scream and cheer for our awesome students; and, we celebrate their success with ice cream! At New Directions, our students work hard and achieve great results. We believe you need to stop and celebrate especially when 41 students have already qualified for June graduation! And, there is no better way to do so than with your friends! Congratulations!
Student and Staff Heroes!
Senior John Mauk continues his march toward graduation as a result of the dedication of two of New Directions finest-Lead School Counselor Ms. Jones and School Security Officer Mr. Bagnerise. PWCS recently awarded both staff members with Certificates of Achievement for their work and support. It takes a student willing to overcome any obstacle to pursue their dream and a team to help make that dream a reality. Congratulations!
Future TV Anchors in the Making!
Journalism students toured the Newseum in Washington, D.C. The class looked at history through the lens of journalism starting with the Revolutionary War. From the "power of the pen" to the information age, students learned that integrity and honesty in reporting helped change the world. And, as we saw, both Roy Negrosa and Alexis Battista certainly have the on-air presence to anchor a newscast!
No Barrier too Great For Our Students!
Students participated in team building exercises at George Mason University. Known as "The Edge," Team Synergy students tackled obstacles, walls, and the tower to reach the goal of supporting one-another. Our students consistently show our community there is no challenge or obstacle too great to stand in their way of success!
The Mining Days of Old Are Alive Today
Students learned the history of mining, dry and wet panning for gold, and experienced first-hand the process used by miners during the 1840s and 1850s. History is fascinating when researched but brought to life through actual experience! Learning about our past helps us appreciate the present. Our students not only want to learn history, but live it!
Fall Fun with Students and Staff
There is nothing better than a fall hay ride to bring out laughs and good cheer. For eight years, the students and staff of New Directions have been building team spirit during the month of October with warm apple cider, togetherness, and pumpkins to take home to the family. They don't call it a pumpkin patch for nothing!
Cool Students, Great Staff, Awesome Community!
It takes everyone working together to make a great school. With 6 Seniors qualifying for graduation and underclassmen earning 150 credits to date, everyone has their eye on the prize! While it takes hard work to reach the goal of graduation it needs to be fun! At New Directions, work and fun go hand in hand!
