Notes from Mrs. Jackson
A great week with what we expect to be a great ending with our annual Veteran’s Day Assembly.  Many thanks to the staff members and families that helped make this a special day for all at NSS.  I spent time in second grade this week and was very impressed with their reading skills as they discussed character plots together.  Thanks also, for helping us reduce the number of student phone calls home – this really helped in terms of a smooth dismissal and less classroom interruptions.  We hope you all have a great long weekend.


And a big, BIG thanks to…
Laura Tavella, Lauren Brill, Belinda Papageorge, Jen Nori for helping to organize and run a fun Pancake Breakfast. Thanks also to the Girl and Boy Scout servers and all the amazing NSS parents who helped at the event. Many thanks also to Chips who donated the pancake mix again!

Mrs. Furey and her volunteers for creating a beautiful and thoughful Veteran’s Wall of Honor and also to Michelle Hennessey and Laura Equale for organizing the refreshments for our Veteran’s Day ceremony.

World Kindness Day is 11/13/18
By wearing any BLUE shirt on 11/13, you will be using your voice to stand in solidarity and say “Kindness Matters” in Fairfield. Students, schools, families, retailers, businesses, and local government throughout Fairfield will come together to send the message that uplifting and encouraging others is a win-win for the giver and receiver of kindness. When we each choose love, acceptance, & non-judgement toward ourselves and others, we experience true connection and bring our entire community closer together. THANK YOU for turning Fairfield BLUE!

Below is the Kindness Matters logo that you can use for your social media.
