New Tech High @ Coppell's Biennial Mardi Gras Fundraiser - February 25
Published: Sun, Feb 19, 2017, 10:10PM CST

New Tech High @ Coppell is hosting our biennial Mardi Gras Fundraiser on February 25th from 5-9 pm to raise money for our school and our charity this year, Texas Trees Foundation. The event includes dinner, a raffle, and a silent and live auction. This year, NTH@C has the pleasure of auctioning off a wide variety of items and packages. Here are some of the our most exclusive items:

  • Camp Cody: A traditional New Hampshire summer camp, Camp Cody has donated 3 gift cards valued at $1,600 each as well as a full two-week session valued at $3,500. Nestled on the sandy beaches of beautiful Lake Ossipee amidst the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Cody offers a summer experience rich in fun, friendship, learning and adventure. Additional fees will apply upon registration, which must be completed within 30 days of Mardi Gras.
  • Signed Dallas Cowboys Football: We also have the opportunity to auction off a signed football by all the members of the Dallas Cowboys football team. This football is ultimately priceless.
  • C2 Education: There will be a $2,000 package from C2 Education that includes a free diagnostic test and 4 lessons. C2 Education is a tutoring center that helps students get ready for the PSAT, SAT, ACT and testing prep for students in grades K-12.
    Fender Mustang Special: We have a like-new Fender Mustang Special electric guitar. This guitar is worth over $1,100 and is a fun item for anyone that is interested in a new guitar.
  • Kinky Boots: NTH@C also will be auctioning off 4 tickets to Kinky Boots at the Dallas Summer Musical. Kinky Boots is an award winning musical, telling the the story of Charlie Price, who inherited a shoe factory from his father. Charlie forms an unlikely friendship with a cabaret performer and drag queen Lola to produce a line of high heels.

To place a bid on the above items or any of the many other items and packages we will have, stop by NTH@C the evening of February 25th. Remember, all proceeds go to benefit our school and our learners, as well as our charity for the year. If you are interested in a meal, you may purchase that evening or go to http://tinyurl.com/nthcmgdinner. We look forward to seeing you and your family that evening for a night of fun and charity!

Important Dual Credit and TSI Information
Published: Sun, Feb 12, 2017, 07:18PM CST

Sophomore Learners,

As you know, one requirement for graduation from New Tech High @ Coppell is the completion of 4 measures of college readiness (a combination of dual credit courses and/or scores of 3 or better on AP exams). In order to begin taking dual credit courses you have to take the TSI Exam (or meet other eligibility requirements found HERE). We will be offering the TSI exam on campus Wednesday, March 1st, at 9:05am. ALL Sophomores will be taking this exam. Below are tasks that need to be completed before learners can take the TSI. These must be done by February 17th:

1. All sophomores will need to do the college application for dual credit and get your college ID number.
2. If you don’t get a college ID number, you will need to go to North Lake’s admissions office (Irving Campus) and have your application processed by the admissions staff.
3. Once you have a college ID number, you will need to set up your eConnect Account and do the TSI Pre-Assessment Test (located within your eConnect Account). When you complete the TSI Pre-Assessment, you will received a “Confirmation Page,” which will show your name, college ID number, and how you scored on the Pre-Assessment.
4. Once you get the Confirmation Page, bring that to Mr. Kennington and you are ready to take the TSI. This and all of the above must be completed by February 17th.

If you have any questions throughout this process, then please e-mail, call, or go see Mr. Kennington on campus. DO NOT wait until the last minute. Get this completed as soon as possible.

Mardi Gras

Parents and Community Members:

New Tech High @ Coppell is hosting our biennial Mardi Gras festival on February 25th, 2017. Learners and staff have been working towards soliciting with businesses and community partners to find tangible items or monetary donations to have items to auction off for the live and silent auctions. We would like to reach out to the community to see if any members are willing to donate any items that we would be able to use in the live and silent auctions. Items such as air miles, box seats to a certain venue, a golf lesson at a country club, or any gift cards or tangible items. We are striving to surpass our goals this year and with your generous collaboration we would be able to do that.

Thank you for supporting New Tech and supporting Mardi Gras in the past. Please contact Michael Kennington (mkennington@coppellisd.com) with any donation that could help support this event.
