Notes from Mrs. Jackson
An exciting week at NSS especially due to the first snowflakes of the season.   I spent time in the Library Media Center this week and it was great seeing our second-graders engaged in note taking in connection with their upcoming PowerPoint presentations.  As we look forward to Thanksgiving next week, on behalf of our entire faculty I thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us and wish you a wonderful holiday.


And a big, BIG thanks to…
Katie Flynn, Veronica Mollica and Diana Palmentiero for organizing another thoughtful World Kindness Day for our school. It was fun for our students to find the Post It Notes with kindness messages scattered about the school.

Monique Jarra for again providing her amazing cupcakes as a sweet treat for our Veterans! Your generosity was greatly appreciated.

Steffano’s NSS Fundraiser
Need a night off from cooking dinner? (Come on, we know you do! )
Savor Steffano’s cooking on November 27, 2018 and help support NSS! Mention the NSS fundraiser and our school will receive 20% of the proceeds from those days! Steffano’s is located at 525 Tunxis Hill Cut Off and is open 11:00am – 10:00pm. Please bring a copy of the flyer or show a picture on your phone!

Kindergarten and First Grade Girl Scouts Daisy Troop – NEW to NSS
It is with great excitement that we announce the start of a brand new Kindergarten and First Grade Girl Scouts Daisy Troop at NSS.  If your Kindergartner or First Grader is interested, please contact Shana McHugh at or Sarah Martin at to learn more.  We will get things started with an informational meeting in early January, so keep an eye on the Friday Flash for more details.

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

NSS Flash Info
If you have a submission for the NSS Friday Flash, send it to no later than 1:00pm on Wednesdays. Please include the text of your blurb (plain text, no special formatting) and any attachments in PDF format. 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 1:00pm on the previous day. For any “community” or non-PTA flyers, please utilize the district’s new system – Peachjar. Peachjar is a website where you can find out about community events and post your own flyers for others to see.
