  • Auction for Parking Spots 
Great news The IB Booster Club has been given the opportunity to auction off two parking spaces for next year. The spaces are in the portion of the parking lot closer to the school where the old car rider line was last year. A highly desirable location! No sophomores, and possibly not every junior, will get a parking space next year due to the ever expanding student population. The auction will take place starting on May 5th, after juniors learn if they have a parking space through the school's process. 

The auction will be open to IB Booster Club members ONLY. If you have not joined the Booster Club and wish to so that you can participate in the auction, please send in cash or checks made payable to the Nease IB Booster Club, together with your student's name and your email address and phone number.  THE COST TO JOIN IS $35 AND WILL NOT CARRY OVER TO NEXT YEAR. NO ONLINE MEMBERSHIPS WILL BE ACCEPTED.  Please drop off with Mrs. Kennedy.

Academy News
For the latest Nease Academy News, read the latest edition of the Academy Newsletter:

If you are an Academy student, and want to drop your Academy for next year, you must fill out and turn in an Academy Drop form. Email Mrs. Combs at Jaime.combs@stjohns.k12.fl.us to request a form. We will not remove an Academy class from the student’s 2018-19 schedule until we’ve received the completed form, per district policy.

A reminder that Academy students sign a contract at the beginning of each year stating that they will maintain certain academic and behavioral standards in order to remain in an Academy program. Academy students must maintain a total GPA of at least a 2.0, and must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA (75%) in an Academy class. A student in an Academy must also maintain a good discipline record. 
In accordance with district policy, if a student does not meet these requirements, he/she will be placed on probation for a semester. If, at the end of that probation period, he/she does not have a GPA which meets the requirements, or fails to have an improved discipline record, the student will be removed from the Academy. If an Out of Zone student is removed from an Academy, he/she will be transferred back to his/her zoned school. Letters were mailed home and delivered to students in class in early February, to make students and parents aware of probationary status for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year.

If you have any questions or concerns about Nease’s Academy of Hospitality & Tourism, Communications Academy, or the Stellar Academy of Engineering, please contact Jaime Combs, Academy Coordinator, at Jaime.combs@stjohns.k12.fl.us

Great Decisions, brought to us by World Affairs Council Jacksonville http://www.worldaffairscounciljax.org, is a non-partisan high school enrichment program on foreign affairs that fosters critical-thinking, conversation and decision-making skills. College professors and high school teachers co-facilitate the monthly sessions at school, and encourage students to drive the conversation, ask questions and share opinions. Additionally, interactive program components off campus provide students the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge in peer discussions. For content information see http://www.fpa.org/great_decisions

If interested, please join the Schoology group, “Great Decisions Nease” access code 5VTWW-9SNBQ. All events and opportunities will be announced through that Schoology group.

Please note that Great Decisions, The World Affairs Council of Jacksonville, and the Foreign Policy Association are not officially affiliated with Nease High School nor with the Saint Johns County School District. They offer these timely and relevant events to the community free of charge, and I believe they are valuable because they bear on the material taught in many of the courses here at Nease.
