NNHS Senior Scavenger Hunt Issue

NNHS Senior Scavenger Hunt Issue

Dear Newton North Community,

On Friday some of our recent graduates participated in a scavenger hunt. This is not a school sanctioned event nor is it a part of any official senior class activities.

Unfortunately, we learned that one of the tasks on the scavenger hunt was to post to social media in a way that was deeply disrespectful and hurtful to the LGBTQ community. We were very disappointed to learn of this behavior, especially coming on the heels of such a joyful event on Wednesday. These actions do not reflect the values of our North community – values that call for us to celebrate our differences, respect and support each other, and welcome all.

This may be an opportunity to speak with your student about the importance of being a good digital citizen and the importance to be respectful to all people.  As a school, we will continue to work with our current students to ensure they uphold the values of our North community as they venture forth to become citizens of our global world.

Regards,

Henry J. Turner, EdD
