Notes from Mrs. Jackson
The Walk-A-Thon was a wonderful way to end our week. It was great having our students participate in this event as a group and we loved seeing so many parents outside along the way cheering us on. Many thanks to all the volunteers helping with this. Our students in grades 4 and 5 are excited about Monday’s concert and we look forward to seeing many of you in attendance. Don’t forget it is an early dismissal day on Tuesday.

Please see the attached document from Ms. R for information about Field Day.


And a big, big thanks to…
Mary and Kurt Rauner, Laura and Jerry Tavella, John Occhipinti and their volunteers for a fun and successful Golf Outing and dinner! We finally had great weather! Congrats to all the raffle basket winners! And many, many thanks to all the sponsors who helped make this fundraiser so successful!

Thank you Kelly Takacs, Gillian Mongirdas, NSS families, the PTA, the NSS staff and Miss R, our parent volunteers, our sponsors, and Mother Nature for making the Walk-A-Thon possible today! Pledges will be collected through Monday, so if you still have to send yours in, there’s still time!

SEPTA Resource & Provider Fair was a great success!
On April 25, SEPTA welcomed approximately 40 vendors representing a broad range of services and resources available to families in and around Fairfield county and beyond. A free event, we were pleased with the turnout and grateful to be the conduit for families to learn about new services or to find different resources that may change and will impact their lives.
