A note from NHS Principal Selekman -
Dear Newark Families,
It is with great pleasure that I announce Newark High School’s new Music Director. Mr. Michael Archer was the top candidate of the selection committee by a wide margin. He is a Delaware native and has been participating in musical groups throughout his life. I have attached a welcome letter from Mr. Archer to this email. His plan is to attend this evening’s band practice and to begin to meet our outstanding students. He and I will meet frequently over the next few days to discuss the best path forward. This year Newark High School will be reestablishing itself as the premier comprehensive high school in the state. We will be rolling out a brand-new, student centered instructional Bell schedule that is exclusive to Newark. We will be offering new course selections, new programs of study, and a dual enrollment course with the University of Delaware health sciences. Finally, with the addition of the Activity Block, students will have an opportunity to self-select everything from enrichment activities to academic support. This is going to be an exciting year with many exciting changes. All of this makes it even more exciting to welcome our new Band and Choral Director, Mr. Michael Archer.
Contact Mr. Archer via email.
