Notes from Mrs. Jackson
It was a great week after spring vacation at NSS. Our students in grade 4 have worked hard this week as they engaged in SBA testing. I spent time in third grade during writing and was very impressed with our students as they worked together to brainstorm ideas to put within their pieces. It was great seeing so many parents at our Kindergarten Curriculum Coffee – the children really enjoyed reading to them and sharing Reader’s Workshop. Make sure to stay tuned for all the great upcoming events in the Flash. It will be an exciting week next week as we all prepare for the annual NSS Variety Show.


NSS Fundraiser at Chip’s Family Restaurant
Who doesn’t like pancakes for breakfast?! Chip’s in Fairfield will be hosting an NSS “Fun-raising” event on Tuesday, April 24th.  Come to Chip’s anytime between 4:00pm and 9:30pm on April 24th, mention the NSS fundraiser, and they will donate 15% of all proceeds to NSS! Just show the flyer to your server on your smartphone and enjoy a fun evening out for a great cause! (see attached flyer).

The golf outing invitation went home in backpack mail this week, please click here for another copy. Pass on to any friends and family who may want to join! Remember, you do not have to be a golfer to attend, the dinner starts at 6 for any non-golfers looking for a night out! A big thank you to the raffle donations, your generosity is MUCH appreciated. Any last minute items you may still want to donate can be sent via backpack mail to Luke Rauner in 5M.

NSS is still looking for sponsors for the NSS Walk-A-Thon in May!
The Walk-A-Thon is the BIGGEST fundraiser of the year and we need YOUR help to make it a success. All proceeds go directly to the NSS PTA to support the wonderful things we do for our kids at NSS. If you know a local business who would like to sponsor the Walk-A-Thon please reach out to the Walk-A-Thon committee (nsswalkathon@gmail.com). This is a fantastic opportunity to advertise your business — the banner will hang at the school until next year’s Walk-A-Thon. We also welcome all our generous sponsors who supported us last year to come back! Sponsor form attached.

If you would like to work with the committee to help get local sponsors we can use your help as well. Please contact Nicole Farrell directly (Nicoleintheneighborhood@gmail.com). If every parent at NSS approaches one business about sponsoring this event, we can make this a huge success!

​​​​​Change of Plan Pads
If a change of plan pad is needed, please send in $3 cash or check payable to NSS PTA, with your child’s name and class. Please allow up to a week to receive a new pad. Thank you!


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!  Looking for a way to get more involved in SEPTA? We are currently seeking volunteers for the 2018-19 SEPTA Nominating Committee. This is a great opportunity to learn about all the different roles available to have a voice in leadership and activities for SEPTA in the coming year.  Email fairfieldseptamembership@gmail.com for details!

Join us on Sunday, April 22 @ 1:30pm for a fun afternoon of bowling fun!  $7.00 per bowler- two games and shoes included! Register HERE RSVP by Friday 4/20– Please note, this is NOT a drop-off event.  Nutmeg Bowl has a snack bar should your bowler get hungry! All abilities welcome!

When: April 25, 2018; Time: 6:00-8:30 pm;  Location: McKinley Elementary School APR
The purpose of the provider fair is to broaden awareness within the Fairfield special needs community about the various resources available in our region, provide the opportunity to connect directly with providers, and obtain information on the programs and services that they provide. Parents will then be able to determine whether any are compatible with the needs of their child(ren).  This event will be free and open to the public.
