Notes from Mrs. Jackson
It was an exciting week here at NSS.  Our Halloween Parade was fun for all and it was great seeing so many parents outside.  Next week, staff are anticipating a fine professional development day of learning together.  We are also looking forward to honoring our Veterans!

NSS Veterans Day Assembly
This is a very special event at NSS.  If you are new to our school community – please make sure you read through all the information in the flyer attached to this week’s “Flash.”  If you have a veteran in your family – we would love to add him/her to our NSS Wall of Honor – so please make sure to get a picture ready to send in.  More information on this great event is included in the following attachments: Veteran’s Day Commemoration and Wall of Honor.
