Notes from Mrs. Jackson
November is flying at NSS. We are all looking forward to seeing many of you at the Pancake Breakfast! This was a productive week for our students as we continued working on many areas in K-5. I was especially proud of our fifth grade chorus when I visited recently. They are really working hard to make the December concert a great one.
