Schedule Changes - August 2017

Parents/guardians - If your student has any incorrect classes, they may coming to talk with their counselor on a first come first serve basis. We will have open hours on August 23, August 24, and August 25. from 1:00 – 3:00. Please have them bring their patience as they may have to wait to see their counselor.


Host An Exchange Student

NHS will be hosting 10 exchange students from France in the fall (probably October) for one week. We are looking for host families. Requirements: 

  • Host students must be provided with their own bed to sleep in. 
  • Host families will be available for a flexible schedule to pick their host student up from NHS in early evening after he/she has attended planned activities. 
  • Host families will prepare dinners for the host student (probably only about 3 for 4 times...a schedule will be given to you). A small stipend will be offered by the French Embassy in DC to cover meals. 

If you are interested, please contact Monsieur Warrington (French teacher at NHS) at Daniel_Warrington@mcpsmd.org.
