A Note from Mrs. Jackson
A great full week at NSS!  Our students are back in the swing of school and working hard in all areas.  We are looking forward to having an early dismissal next Friday devoted to staff development.  Our teachers are working closely together to analyze student work as it informs their instruction.  Stay warm this weekend.

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 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)
