Notes from Mrs. Jackson

A fine week at NSS.  The rain did not help us for field day this week – but we are confident the sun will shine next Wednesday on our rain date.  We are looking forward to Sunday’s picnic and hope to see many of you there.

NSS 3rd Annual Adventure Park Outing

Join us at the Adventure Park, the evening of the last day of school, Friday June 17th, from 5 – 9pm – a great activity for kids and family and the perfect reward to your children for a terrific year!  It’s only $40 per climber (A Savings of $5-$15 per ticket) and the NSS PTA gets a major portion of the proceeds. Flyers went out in backpack mail, or click here to download another. Friends, relatives, siblings, etc., all are welcome. Please send in your forms this week as the deadline is approaching!  Email Howie Greenspan at Howieg@scsdirectinc.com with any questions.

Bus Buddies

The Bus Buddy Program gives 4th and 5th grade students an opportunity to support Kindergarten students during their first week of school while they are on the school bus. It can be comforting for these new students to have at least one familiar face on the bus in case they have any questions or concerns.  Click here for the flyer, which includes more info, as well as the sign-up sheet.

NSS Family Picnic

The weather won’t keep us down!  Click here to read everything you need to know about the picnic, including details on location, food, and activities.  We’ll see you there!

2nd & 3rd Grade Parents:  Seeking Volunteers

The PTA needs you! We’re in search of volunteers to serve as next year’s River Lab Captains.  The Captains will coordinate parent volunteers in your grade and serve as a liaison to the River Lab to schedule training and study-trip times.  River Lab is a fantastic program that utilizes parent volunteers to provide opportunities for students to learn about our local environment, and we don’t want our NSS students to miss out!  Please contact Jen Giudice at giudice00@yahoo.com, if interested in finding out more about this opportunity to volunteer.  And visit http://river-lab.org to learn more about River Lab.

NSS Day at Frank Pepe Pizzeria

Don’t feel like cooking?  Swing by Frank Pepe Pizzeria on Wednesday, June 8th, from 11am10pm.  15% of proceeds will be donated to the NSS PTA.  Click here for the flyer to present at the register!

School Supply Kits 2016-17

Backpacks, lunch boxes, and thermoses are now available to order as well!  Please visit www.shopttkits.com, use account number 83268 and pay online via credit card.

Junior Troop 33405 – Socks of Love Drive

Working toward their Bronze Award, 5th Grade Girl Scout Junior Troop 33405 will be collecting supplies for “Socks of Love” to donate to the men’s shelter at the Bridgeport Rescue Mission.  A bin in the front hall of NSS will be there to collect the following toiletry items:  toothbrushes and travel size items like toothpaste, soaps, shampoos, shaving creams, and deodorants.  The drive runs through 6/8.  Please help the girls by donating much needed toiletries for those in need.  Thank you from Troop 33405!!!

Friday Flash Info 

If you have a submission for the Friday Flash, send it to info@nsspta.org no later than 11:00 AM on Thursday.  Please include any attachments as well.  When we have a short week, the Flash will go out on the last school day of that week.  The deadline for submissions will then be 11:00 AM on the previous day.  Also, when sending an email for the Flash, please include no extra formatting, i.e., bold, caps, shading, etc.  For any “community” or non-PTA flyers, please utilize the district’s new system – Peachjar.
