Dear Parents, Students, Teachers, and Staff,
Congratulations to the 36 students that participated in the Nassau-‐Suffolk County Middle Level Mock Trail Competition on Friday morning. North Shore Middle School entered a record setting six teams into the competition and came away with five fantastic wins!
More important than dominating the competition (though fun to do) was that our students learned a lot about mock trial, enhanced their communication, collaboration,
and problem solving skills, and had an enjoyable overall experience. I can tell you with great certainty that the North Shore Community will be flooded with some seriously talented lawyers in about 12-‐14 years!
Next week is a short week as we prepare for the upcoming Easter break. In addition to the usual club activities, we will also host another Principal’s Coffee Talk on Wednesday morning at 8:30am in the library.
Discussion topics are open to all parents and can
range from the upcoming state tests, teen drug
& alcohol use, academic curriculum issues, or any other topics that parents wish to discuss with me.
Have a terrific weekend!
Dr. Marc Ferris
Principal, North Shore Middle School
