SCHOOL NEWS

Notes from Mrs. Jackson
Our Spring Concert was a big hit this week and we enjoyed seeing so many families gathering together to celebrate with our musicians. Our students are working and playing hard as they approach the last few weeks of school. I continue to be impressed with the quality of student writing and stopped in some of our third-grade classes while they were discussing characters – very impressive! We are looking forward to next week’s Art Show and I know the students can’t wait for you to see their work displayed throughout the building. Have a wonderful long holiday weekend!

Field Day Information Update for 4M and 5D!
Is your child in 4M or 5D? Please see the attached document from Ms. R for updated information about Field Day.

PTA NEWS

Thank you from the PTA Co-Presidents!
What a year!  We still have a few weeks to go, but we wanted to take this time to thank all the members of the NSS community who have used their time and resources to make NSS the best possible community for our kids.  It’s been a pleasure for us to serve the wonderful group of people that make up our school – kids, teachers and parents alike.  We’re so excited that Kelly Imschweiler has taken on the role of PTA President, (it became official Tuesday night) and we know that we’re all in good hands under her leadership.  We’ve been fortunate to work with a wonderful executive board this year – (in alphabetical order) Lauren Brill, Nicole Farrell, Katie Flynn, Jen Giudice, Daniella Kohler, Maria Kozeracki, Hallie Levine, Ingrid Prueher, Alene Sabados, Deirdre Sikora & Jen Whelpley, all of whom have worked so hard, and with a such collaborative spirit.  We’re all lucky to have these people working on our behalf.  Finally, to all the staff, particularly Mrs. Jackson, Mari, Eileen and Kim in the office, and to Mr. Mark our head custodian – thank you for guiding & putting up with us!  Collaborating with you has truly been one of the best parts of this role.
