2019/2020 School Year

Welcome to the North Dickinson County School web-page. It is my sincere hope that students will have a successful and rewarding school experience. The community, staff and Board of Education has provided our students with many opportunities to grow accademically, socially, and physically. Our school staff is made up of many caring and dedicated people who will work very hard to give the best educational experience possible. In return, we ask our students to put forth their best effort in all of their classes and get involved in school activities.

If there is any way I can help you during the school year, please be sure to ask; my door is always open.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Angel R. Inglese
Superintedent/Principal

ASVAB Testing
By: Mrs. Angie Jungwirth
 
On November 13 our school will be administering the ASVAB test to any 11th and 12th graders who wish to take the test. The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world. As an aptitude test, the ASVAB measures student strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success. The ASVAB also provides career information for various civilian and military occupations and is an indicator for success in future endeavors whether students choose to go to college, vocational school, or a military career. Each student will receive a copy of his/her results a few weeks after testing. Please ask your child to see his/her ASVAB results and to explain them to you. Additional copies of test results will be placed in each student’s file at the school.
 
Reminder: Parents of Seniors:
 
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFSA) is available now for parents to fill out. All students planning to attend college should fill out a FASFA in order to determine eligibility for federal and state aid for college.  As a reminder, for the 2019–20 FAFSA, students will be required to report income information from the 2017 year, rather than their 2018 income information.  Please contact Angie Jungwirth if you have questions or would like help completing and submitting the FASFA.
