Welcome Back—Friendly Reminders & Cute Story
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome Back to the 2014-2015 school year!
I can’t believe I am starting my seventh year at NHCS! The first few days have been going well. Teachers and students are getting to know each other and are learning the different routines in the classrooms. Here
are some reminders of the different overall “school” procedures.
PTO Meeting—September 15th
• Please join us for our first PTO meeting of the year
• 6:30 p.m. in our multi-purpose room
• We will have two $25 gift card door prizes
Follow me on Twitter
As a way to communication with parents and the community, I have a Twitter account. You do not need
a fancy phone to be on Twitter. You can tweet using a computer or tablet. All you need is have a Twitter
account—if you don’t have one, it is free and easy to set up. Also, if you want, you can only follow me and
not get into this social media in a huge way. Once you have an account, search for me by typing in Ann
Holloran or aholloran@NASD and click FOLLOW.
Here are some examples of the messages (tweets) I would possibly write:
• Check your child’s backpack as progress reports went home on 3/8
• NHCS—Remember, the Kids’ Expo is on 3/20—click this link for more information nhcs.sau4.org
• DES & NHCS—Remember, Early Release is tomorrow, 3/20—dismissal at noon
• Read this interesting article about bedtimes—take a look
• Due to the weather, the NHCS and DES afterschool programs are canceled.
Check out the NHCS Website
• Our address is www.nhcs.sau4.org
• Check out the new format and links—more updates to come over the next few weeks
At our ice cream social, I had a student come up to me and say, “Ms. Holloran, I don’t get it, why do you keep switching shirts?” I didn’t understand the student’s question, so I asked him to repeat it. So the second time he said, “Why do you keep changing shirts? I saw you with a red shirt on and now you have a blue shirt on.” I started to smile and explained to the student that I wasn’t changing shirts, that I have a twin sister. I told him that she was wearing the red shirt scooping ice cream and I (Ms. Holloran) had always been wearing blue. We turned around to look at my sister, and then he and I had a good laugh! (That is one
for the memory book!)
Have a great weekend--
