Important Message from Project Promise:


DID YOU KNOW…


...that next year will be the final year of the Project Promise After School grant for the New Hampton Community School?  What does this mean?  We need to start planning for the next grant so we can continue to have the after school program at NHCS. Please join a discussion group on Tuesday, May 5th at 5:15 pm right before the PTO Taco Night.  If you would like more information, please contact Mrs. Doucette, Miss Holloran, or Mrs. Fabricant.


The Scholastic Book Fair is coming soon.  During school hours on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (5/4-6), students will have an opportunity to purchase books.   The Fair will also be open during the Appreciation Dinner/Taco Night on Tuesday, May 5.


Flyers are going home with the students, announcing the good news that the Newfound Area School District will be offering full day kindergarten, starting with the 2015/16 school year.  In order for planning to take place, we ask that parents of eligible children either call or come by our office to register their children prior to Friday, April 17. Kindergarten Connection will be taking place on Wednesday, May 13, and those parents who have registered their children will be receiving packets from us in April. Please pass this information on to any parents you may know of who have children who will be eligible to enter kindergarten this upcoming year.


Mrs. Plante-Renaud, our art teacher, is looking for large, empty coffee creamer containers with the snap tops.  She will be needing these for a special project with the students.  Also, if you have any over-sized t-shirts that the students could use as smocks during their art classes, please send them our way.


Throughout the school year, we will be “Capturing CARES” and recognizing students who have been caught modeling our mission statement, “NHCS CARES” (Character, Achievement, Responsibility, Excellence, Spirit).  During Wednesday’s lunch time, the following students were recognized:


Rylee Barney - Achievement & Responsibility

Tynan Beauchemin - Achievement & Responsibility

Sarah Buchanan - Character

With the melting of the snow on the playground, children are often coming in from recess with wet clothing.  It would be helpful if your child could bring in a change of clothing (including socks/shoes) for such times during this mud season.


We hope your family is enjoying the One Book/One School selection of Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White.  Students may turn in their families’ responses to that week’s trivia questions on Friday morning, depositing them in the box located on the stage.  All entries will be eligible for a weekly prize, and there will be a grand prize drawing at the conclusion of this event.  Happy Reading!

Jump Rope for Heart


The Jump Rope for Heart event took place during your children’s physical education classes on February 16 and February 17. All students had the opportunity to jump and to raise funds for the American Heart Association. If your child participated in the fundraising, donations must be put in the special envelopes and returned to us no later than Wednesday, March 4.  This is the fourth year that we’ve taken part in this event.  Last year the students raised $1,470, and this year’s goal is to raise $1,500.

Winter Activities


The last day for Winter Activities will be on Thursday, March 5.


Thank you Volunteers



Thank you to the Boxer Family for putting up the February Birthdays bulletin board.  If you haven’t had a chance to see it, the bulletin board is very festive and is in keeping with Valentine’s Day celebrations.  Would you be interested in volunteering to put up the birthday bulletin board in one of the coming months?  We have plenty of paper and trim on hand.  If you’re interested, please give the office a call at 744-3221.

Missing Snow Pants:  One of our students is missing a black pair of snow pants (no bib).  They’re new and have the child’s name written in them.  Perchance one of the other students had a similar pair and picked up the wrong ones (lots of black snow pants around), would you please double check to make sure your child has the correct pair?  Please give us a call if you do come across them. Thank you for checking.
