Mrs. Frost is sending home a flyer today to announce our participation in Jump Rope for Heart, 2015. All students will have an opportunity to jump and to raise funds for the American Heart Association. This event will take place during your children’s physical education classes on February 16 and February 17. This is the fourth year that we’ve taken part in this event. You will find more details in today’s flyer.
The fourth grade at NHCS has been selected to represent schools across the nation by participating in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The results of NAEP are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provide information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public. The assessment will be given on Wednesday, February 11, and will last about 90 minutes for most students. For more details, please refer to the letter that was recently sent home by Mrs. Cook with all fourth graders. If you have any questions, please give us a call (744-3221).
Thank you to the Magrauth Family for creating the January birthday bulletin board. It’s beautiful and certainly reflects the wintry weather we’ve been having. Would you be interested in volunteering to put up the birthday bulletin 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.
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: Emily Lower - Character Lulu Machado - Responsibility
Next week: January 27 for 6 weeks (Tuesdays): PARENTS and KIDS IN THE KITCHEN from 5:30 to 7:30pm. Some of the topics we will cover include: learning about whole grains and making pancakes, increasing fruits and vegetables, making snacks, fun recipes your child can help make. There is no charge for the series and child care or a place to do homework will be provided if there are siblings who will not be participating. The workshop will be at Whole Village Family Resource Center, 258 Highland Street in Plymouth. To register call Lisa Ford at 536-3720 ext. 103. We must know if children will be coming who are not participating in the cooking class so we can provide sufficient child care coverage.
