Week: January 29, 2018

Monday-E, Tuesday-F, Wednesday-A, Thursday-B, Friday-C


Notes from Mrs. Jackson
We were all happy to have a five day week with no snow!  Our students are working hard in all areas and I was impressed with student writing work in first grade this week – so many great details within their sentences.  Next week will be a special week as our students and community enjoy the Drama Production.  I hope to see many of you there.

We continue to share with you that flu season this year is particularly dangerous, and we want to take every precaution to keep our staff and children safe.  The district posted a link to the Fairfield Health Department on the district Facebook page regarding flu shots that are still available.  Please help us at school by remembering to keep children home when they are not feeling well.  Hopefully, flu season will pass quickly and will be uneventful for our NSS community.

Art Project Materials Request
4th grade will be making cakes! To do so, we’ll first need a good amount of thin cardboard. Please save boxes at home and bring them to the Art room ASAP! Examples: cereal boxes, fruit bar boxes, Dunkin’ donut boxes, frozen waffle boxes- (basically anything that comes in a thin cardboard box! ) THANKS –Mrs. Mansi

This year, we are doing the ticketing process differently and are using SignUp Genius.  If you want to secure your seats ahead of time (and we are filling up quickly), please follow this link to select your seats. You will find the instructions on how to choose your seats through that link.  You will need to scroll down to find available seats. On the SignUp Genius page, you will also find links for the map of the auditorium and Paypal for ease of payment. We will NOT be sending home tickets.  You need to print or bring a screenshot of your signup genius confirmation as that will be your ticket.  If you choose to do backpack mail for payment, please be sure to send the money in within 48 hours of ordering.

Thank you! Any questions, please email nssdramaprogram@gmail.com.
