Dear Northfield Norsemen: Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! Northfield Jr./Sr. High School has a rich tradition of excellence that started with the first graduating class of 1963. As a member of the Wabash community my entire life, I am honored to be your principal. As we learn more and more about the world of technology and communication, please stay connected with us through our web page, Facebook, e-mails, and possibly other modes in the near future. When I attend extra curricular events and throughout the school day, I will be tweeting messages and pictures that will post on our Facebook account. If you need any assistance creating or using Skyward to track your child’s grades, discipline, attendance, etc., please let us know. There is also a free App if you have a smart phone. Through our Norse Honor program, (Respect, Responsibility, Pride, and Peacemaker) we strive to create an environment where every student is given the attention necessary to achieve his/her individual success. This is done through academics, career preparedness with the Heartland Career Center and our Internship program, and co- and extra-curricular programs. Along with the Indiana Department of Education, my vision for Northfield Jr./Sr. High School is: · 90%+ of our students will graduate in four years · 90% of our students will pass ISTEP+ and End of Course Assessments · 25% of our students will earn 3 or more college dual credits upon graduation I look forward to working with our great staff to provide a wonderful educational experience for our students. The success of our students depends on active involvement of the entire school community as well as parents. I am confident that the Northfield Class of 2015 will be leaders to our underclassmen along leaders in the community. As we begin the 2014-2015 school year, please stay in communication with your child’s teachers. Thanks for allowing us to serve your child as we continue to work on our mission and core values. Educationally yours, Mike Keaffaber
