It is so hard to believe we are approaching Memorial Day Weekend!  We wish you all a healthy and joyful three days. We are looking forward to many exciting events as we approach the end of the school year. Next week I will share specifics regarding dates to pick up materials that your children left at school in March. Our Fifth Grade students have an opportunity to join in a celebration drive by “parade” on Tuesday, June 9th at 12:00 noon (for grade 5 only). The dates were set by the district with approval from our town officials. Fifth grade families will be getting more specific information regarding this great celebration event. For now – please put the date on your calendars and plan on decorating your cars (one car per family only) if you like to honor your fifth grader. Stay safe.

Back by popular demand is our super friendly, super easy, school supporting Supply Kit Fundraiser! Once we all have the chance to get out and about the last thing anyone will want to do is spend time shopping for school supplies. Our NSS staff has put together a list of items needed by grade for the 2020/2021 school year and with just a few clicks your supplies are ordered and will be delivered to your door. Also available on the site are backpacks, lunch boxes and lunch accessories at a discounted price. A portion of all kit sales will be given to the NSS PTA to support the many amazing activities we offer our school.
Thank you in advance for your generous support! Click here for the order form.
Please note: Prices include shipping cost. Deadline to order is Tuesday, June 2nd.

The NSS PTA is pleased to announce our annual “Gift to School” for this year: We installed 2 new “Hydration Stations” at NSS! These are the bottle filling water fountains seen at gyms, etc. We currently have one near the art room, so we wanted to add 2 more. We added one to the 4th/5th Grade wing and one outside the APR. We know the kids will be excited to use these “touchless” machines when they go back to school! The Hydration Stations will reduce waste and encourage the kids to drink more water so it’s win win! Get your NSS water bottles from Tricia Todd. Thank you!

2020-21 PTA SLATE
The PTA is proud to present our 2020-2021 Slate, which was approved at Monday night’s meeting. We are already looking forward to all of the events and activities these volunteers will be planning for our community next year, and we are so grateful for their commitment to make our school a wonderful place for the students, teachers and families! A big thank you, of course, to all of our outgoing leaders and volunteers, who have dedicated countless hours to the NSS community!
