Nova Parents and Guardians:
It is hard to believe that we are gearing up for another school year. It is with great excitement that I welcome you back! As I begin my 16th year at Nova High, I cannot help but feel a true sense of pride over what great success we continue to have in so many areas. I hope our students have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break and are ready to join me in continuing our vision of making Nova High School the best school in Broward County!
With the growing complexity of the world and the increasing demands of the 21st-century workforce, we believe that all students should graduate from high school fully prepared for college and/or career. We will strive to ensure that our students experience rigor and relevance in all of their courses, as this will prepare them for their post secondary lives. It is our mission to continually challenge our students to reach their potential and my staff and I are committed to providing our students with the resources and opportunities they need to reach their goals.
Let me take this opportunity to invite you to our student schedule pickup. Parents must be present in order for students to obtain schedules. Please be advised that this process should take no more than 30 minutes. This year’s program will be structured as follows:
9th-10th Grade: Thursday, August 13th, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm (cafeteria)
11th-12th Grade: Wednesday, August 19th, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm (cafeteria)
In closing, do know that you are our customer. If there is anything my staff or I can do to assist you or your child in his/her educational endeavors, do not hesitate to call.
Dr. John R. LaCasse
