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).
Jump Rope for Heart information was sent home last week. This event will take place during your children’s physical education classes on February 16 and February 17. All students will have an opportunity to jump and to raise funds for the American Heart Association. If your child will be participating 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.
Box Tops for Education: As many of you know, we participate in Box Tops for Education and have recently received information on a program they’ll be running for most of February. Starting February 1st, Hannaford is partnering with General Mills to host a Bonus Box Tops for Education program. From February 1st to February 21st, when you buy any 5 General Mills Box Tops products, you get 20 BONUS Box Tops at checkout. Look for the shelf tags in-store to help you find the participating products.
