As the 2018-2019 school year began in September, Nutley High School introduced new teachers to the students. New business teacher, Ms. Samantha Hart, joined the NHS staff. She began teaching students in Accounting, Marketing, and Financial Literacy.
Nutley High School held their finals Monday, June 18 through Thursday, June 21. One final took place from 8:15 a.m. until 10:15 a.m., and the second final was from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Finals are tests that include all the curriculum, which students have learned from midterms through the end of the year. As finals are given, school days are cut to single session days, starting at regular time and ending at 12:35 p.m. Finals were given two classes a day, and were two hours long with a 15 minute break given in between.
With the big event right around the corner, groups of Nutley citizens are coming together and raising money for cancer awareness. Relay for Life is a fundraiser, benefiting the American Cancer Society. It is not an event that is only taking place in Nutley; there are more than 1.3 million participants worldwide involved in raising money for a cure.
