Dear Parents and Guardians,

What a busy week and looking at the calendar for the next few weeks, it doesn’t really slow down!

Spaghetti Dinner Thank-you
On behalf of all of us at NHCS, I wish to sincerely thank our current and past families, townspeople, businesses, and others for their generous support of our Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser held on October 23rd. It was a packed house in support of our teacher Ms. Conway, and LRGH’s Breast Health Program. Our profit of $1,124 will be split between Ms. Conway and LRGH. Pink decorations supplied by the NHCS PTO and appearance by Ms. Conway made the night extra special. I also want to express my gratitude for the amazing and dedicated faculty and staff at NHCS who organized and ran this event. Our motto of 

NHCS CARES was on full display.
Fire Prevention Friday
We had the fire alarms go off unexpectedly this morning at 6:55 a.m. and our faculty, staff, and students had to use some of our emergency management skills. Everyone showed great flexible thinking as students were dropped off and went into the Little Red School House with our faculty and staff. The NHFD gave the “all ok” around 7:25 a.m. Later in the morning, members of the NHFD went into our primary classrooms to talk about fire safety and demonstrated to the students what a fireperson would be wearing and what it would sound like if they had to come into their house to rescue someone. In the afternoon, the NHFD met with students in grades 3-5 to show a movie on fire safety and prevention.

Next week—Halloween Food Drive & Parade
We are collecting cans and non-perishable food items for the Halloween Food Drive. Please bring them into school by Wednesday. During our 1:15 parade, students will be loading the cans into Mrs. Bergholm’s spooky truck to be delivered to our local food pantry. A flyer went home in a previous newsletter outlining our costume expectations. Remember students will be getting dressed into their school appropriate costumes around 12:45 p.m. Each classroom will hold a very small party after our parade.

Veterans Day Assembly—November 8th—9:00 a.m.
We will host a Veterans Day assembly on Thursday, November 8 at 9:00 a.m. Our students will sing songs and read poems to honor and recognize the true heroes who have given so much to protect our freedom and country. Local veterans and their families are invited to attend the 45-minute program, followed by refreshments. Please contact the main office to RSVP for this event.

Parent-Teacher Conference—Night of November 8th and Morning of November 9th
Have you signed up for your conference yet? If not, please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher for a time slot. During this conference, teachers will be sharing assessment results and also discuss your child’s social and behavioral skills. There will be a lot of positive celebrations going on, so please join us for the opportunity to share the great news! Also remember no school for students on Friday, November 9th and Monday, November 12th.
Yikes! That is a lot! 

If you have any questions or concerns about these events, please don’t hesitate to give me a call. 

Have a great weekend!
