SCHOOL NEWS

A Note from Mrs. Jackson
Happy New Year! It is great having our students back at NSS after a long winter vacation. We are looking forward to all the great learning activities planned for 2019. I spent time in all lunch shifts this week and really enjoyed hearing about the great times our students had last week with their families. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the weather and make sure your children come to school with hats and gloves so they can enjoy time outside at recess.

Jump Rope for Heart 
Hello Families! Our school is proud to partner with the American Heart Association with the Kids Heart Challenge. Over the next few weeks, our students will be having fun learning about their heart & practicing their jump rope skills with the Heart Heroes while raising money to help fund lifesaving research.   Students can earn their own Heart Hero Characters this year by using the new mobile app (download the Kids Heart Challenge app) or by visiting www.heart.org/kidsheartchallenge to sign up and raise money online! Just for signing up to save lives, your students will earn a glow in the dark wristband! PLUS this year, the mobile app unlocks even more fun.  The Heart Heroes and wristband come to life! All donations are due on February 8th and our event day(s) are January 28th-February 1st. Thank you for helping a great cause!
Attached is the class schedule for the JRFH event. You will find the date and time that your child/children will be participating in their Jump Rope for Heart event.
Thank you for all your support. Kim Rasmussen (NSS Physical Education Teacher)
