A fine week at NSS even with the weather. I know the students enjoyed both Pizza Bingo Nights. We are really looking forward to all the fine literacy events during the month of March – so make sure you enjoy them as well – especially Dr. Seuss Day!

If your child will be entering Kindergarten in the 2019/20 school year, please be sure to pre-register on line and schedule an appointment with our registrar’s office prior to our visitation/orientation day scheduled on May 1, 2019. We have added the links below to guide you through our registration process. Once you have pre-registered on line, you will need to make an appointment to confirm the registration at Central Office. To make an appointment, please call 203-255-8398. Thank you.

The moment we’ve been all waiting for! Everything you need to know about the Variety Show is in the following attachment. Please print out the application page and return as soon as possible no later than March 1st.

Start saving books your kids are done reading!  The NSS PTA will be hosting our fourth annual Book Swap on Wednesday, March 6th from 6:30-7:30 in the APR!  Books will be collected on Monday 3/4, Tuesday 3/5 and Wednesday 3/6 in the classrooms. One book donated earns a “new” book at the Book Swap.
See the attached flyer for further details!

Calling all North Stratfield Girls! Girl Scout Troop #33221 invites you along with an influential adult to the annual Sweetheart Dance on Friday, March 8th from 6:30-8:30 in the NSS APR. Bring your dancing shoes, along with donations of crayons and small containers of play-doh for the benefit of children in local hospitals in collaboration with Brady’s Smile.
See the attached flyer for more information.

Saturday, March 9th, 5-7:30 p.m. at Nutmeg Lanes, Fairfield
It’s time to break out your bowling shoes! Mother & Son Bowling Night is back! Show off your skills and play with (or against) each other! Flyers will be coming home soon in backpack mail, or you can print the attached. This event sold out quickly last year as Nutmeg Bowl only allows 6 bowlers per lane. A week before the event, we’ll send out a link to everyone who’s registered and paid to pick those lucky lanes!  And of course, if Mom can’t make it, bring an aunt, grandma, or another special bowler!  It’s going to be a blast!
Questions: email Jen Nori ( or Alexandra McHale (
