It has been a great distance learning week at NSS. Another thanks to our Ms. R. and staff for sharing the video with you all. I know the children enjoyed receiving it as much as we enjoyed making it. We hope to do more of these as time goes on (can’t wait for tomorrow’s)! Thanks for working with your children and supporting all of our teachers. Please continue to not add pressure to your already full plates. Balance continues to be our motto at NSS. We are looking forward to more Fridays where there will be time to help support children in the area of social/emotional learning. Have a wonderful weekend!

  • The PTA would like to thank Lauren Brill for her help with this year’s Author Visit. Unfortunately, we had to cancel this event for this year. We are all very sad not to be able to host Sarah Weeks this time. Thanks to Lauren, we received this “lovely message” from Ms. Weeks.
  • BIG thanks for Kelly McWhinnie and Aimee White-Charles for their work on pulling together our Yearbook. Looking forward to seeing all those smiling faces!
  • SUPER BIG thanks to all our NSS teachers and staff for the amazing video they put together for us. We appreciate all that you are doing for our children and families.  If you missed the video or want to view again, click here.

Dear 2020 NSS Variety Show Participants:
We hope this message finds you and your families doing well!
It saddens us to share with you the decision to cancel the 2020 NSS Variety Show scheduled for April 25th, 2020. We appreciate all the effort that was put into the act submission and previews. We hope you continue to practice your moves, fine tune those instruments/vocal cords so we can see you on stage next year.
We will certainly miss the talented 5th graders that will be graduating this year. We hope to see you in the audience next year cheering on for the younger kiddos.
Stay healthy and be well! – Maria Kozeracki and Jen Calabrese
