SCHOOL NEWS

A NOTE FROM MRS. JACKSON
It has been such a busy and wonderful time at NSS – I haven’t made the Flash deadline in time for publication!  A VERY special thank you to our wonderful PTA and parents for providing such a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Week filled with so many fine treats.  Our faculty room looks great with the many decorative touches that were added that week as well.  We all enjoyed our Art Show and it was a great time to celebrate art, plants, and time together as a community.  Our Spring Concert was a highlight last week as was our Walk-A-Thon.  This week was another great week filled with many fine classroom activities.  We can’t believe it is Memorial Day on Monday and we are all working very hard to get all our activities in before June.  I spent time in grade 5 this week and was impressed with student thinking as they worked on their poetry unit.
