The Nashua News
Along with cold days, our STAR learners continue to develop key skills that are preparing them for the future! Our 4th graders just returned from EarthWorks during January and our 3rd graders are getting ready to attend the Coterie Theatre at the end of the month to see the play The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. 5th graders are deepening their understanding of fractions, while our Kindergartners are busy writing books and learning to ask questions while reading. Our 1st and 2nd graders are reviewing addition and subtraction, while they write Narratives during Writer's Workshop.
Nashua has been chosen to pilot an online registration program for the 2015-16 school year. Please look for more information on how to participate in the upcoming months. This process should help to decrease the paperwork load and time that has been required in the past.
As I say every month in this newsletter, it is an honor to serve as the principal of Nashua Elementary. Thank you for trusting us with your STAR learners every day! If you have any questions about what is happening in our classrooms, please contact your child's teacher. They are always happy to answer any questions you might have.

Student-Led Family Fun Night Friday, May 1
Nashua PTA hosts an annual celebration on the first Friday night in May. This year we are planning a Student-Led Family Fun Night. Rather than tickets or wristbands, we'd like to have 16 free activities for the kids to enjoy. We are asking each class to choose a simple activity (bean bag toss, relay race, craft, face painting, etc.) to host. In order to make this happen, we need a Room Rep for each class. The Room Reps will pick three activities, have the kids vote on their top activity, and then help create a signup for the selected activity. Families will sign up to bring materials to setup the activity. Students, along with their parents, will sign up for 20 minute shifts to run their activity. At the end of the evening, kids will vote for their favorite activity, and the class with the most votes will get a trophy and a popcorn party. We need at least 12 of the 16 Room Reps by February 17th or we will need to cancel this event. For more details (including activity ideas) or to sign up, visit http://nashuapta.webs.com/ and click on Family Fun Night or call Jen at 816-730-1019.
