NSS Plant Sale Container Donations
Spring Cleaning? We are looking for donations of items that we can creatively re-purpose for the Annual Spring Plant Sale. Along with flower pots, we can also use small wicker baskets, pretty or cute coffee mugs and tea cups, small bowls…really anything that can be turned into a creative planter or garden ornament. If you are spring cleaning and find items you would like to donate, please contact Amy Boland at

Garden to Go
This year we are offering for pre-order for the PTA Plant Sale a Tomato Garden to Go that you can put anywhere it is sunny and you’ll have an easy to care for and simple garden in a bucket. Included will be a Cherry Sweet 100 tomato plant, planted in a 3.5 gal bucket in certified organic composted soil and pre-seeded with basil and vine style string bean seeds and a Happy Tomato Stake garden marker. Basil always goes great with tomatoes and string beans do a great job holding the tomato plant to the stake. Our kids love to eat them right of the plant and yours will, too.  $20 per garden in a bucket. Deadline April 21st for pre-orders and limited quantities available at the sale. Any questions, email to:

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!

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.

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.
