It has been a unique and wonderful school year and I am so proud of our students, staff, and parents for working together during the first ever “distance learning” experience.  On behalf of our entire school community I wish you all a happy and healthy summer.  If you were unable to pick up materials on Thursday or Friday this week – we have kept them together for you.  Just email Mrs. Jackson for a pick up time. 

Stay well,
Mrs. Jackson


  • Thank you ALL for an amazing – and memorable! – year at NSS. Thanks to the parents for volunteering at our events and participating in our fundraisers. Thank you to all the teachers and staff for getting us through the many challenges of distance learning, and for brightening up our days with your videos and other communications. And a big thank you to Mrs. Jackson for all of her guidance and support this year. The PTA is grateful to our entire NSS community. Enjoy your summer, we’ll be back in the Fall, stronger than ever! Go Tigers! 

  • The PTA would like to take a moment to thank all of our “Room Parents” for this year. We appreciate all of your help in coordinating all of the volunteers for our class events. The Room Parents are a key part in keeping the parents involved in our classroom activities and field trips! We are grateful for all of your hard work this year. A big thanks to Stephanie Landau and Kelly Lovegrove for helping our Room Parents every step of the way. Enjoy the summer!

  • The PTA would like to thank Alene Sabados and Torey Strauser for their work leading the 5th grade committee this year. We know that a tremendous amount of time and energy went into planning all of the events during the year, even those that sadly did not end up happening, and we appreciate all that you, and your committee, has done for your class! We wish our graduating students all the best as they move on to middle school!

  • The PTA would like to thank Kelly McWhinnie and Aimee White-Charles for their hard work on our 2020 Yearbook! This committee was faced with many challenges this year, and we are thankful for all of your hard work on this beloved NSS tradition. We will all be reading it all summer long as we reflect on all the great memories at NSS! Thank you!

  • The PTA would also like to thank Tricia Todd for helping us show our school spirit with our “Spirit Wear!”. We all love our NSS gear and Tricia works hard to make sure we’re all covered! Thank you, Tricia!

  • The NSS community would love to send a virtual hats off to our fifth graders! You are off to great places, and we all look forward to hearing about all the wonderful things you continue to do! And a special thank you to our fifth grade parents especially the ones saying a final farewell to NSS. We are a better community and school because of your commitment and hard work!

BonnaH Co Fiber Arts Moms’ Event

BonnaH Co Fiber Arts will be hosting a moms’ event “Stitching for Self-Care: Make a Lavender Eye Pillow.” We will meet on consecutive Sundays, July 12 and July 19 from 2:00 – 3:30 pm. We are considering two options: Either host our class online or outside in a socially-distant setup. We will decide based on the pandemic guidelines in July and the comfort level of the attendees. All materials and supplies are included in the class fee and will be delivered to you if the class is held online. Share laughter, have fun, and learn some new skills with us. Plus, a portion of your class fee will be donated back to the NSS PTA. Space is extremely limited, so sign up here. Questions? Contact Bonnie Liang and Hannah Choi at bonnahcofiberarts@gmail.com.

Sweetheart Dance Refunds FINAL CALL

Refunds are currently being processed for those who prepaid tickets to the NSS Sweetheart Dance.  Please check your Inbox for email with details on how to receive your refund. If you received an email it means you prepaid.   For any questions or further information, email Annalisa at panagiotakis969@msn.com  After June 15, any unclaimed funds will be donated to Girl Scout Troop 33261.

Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to fill some of the open PTA positions! We still have a few remaining, so please consider taking one of them on – if we don’t have leaders, these events won’t happen! Doing it with a friend makes it even more fun!
