Principally Speaking

What a fantastic beginning of school we have had at Nashua Elementary! I can't remember a more successful start to a school year. I know we are going to have an awesome 2019-20 year!!

Our STARS have been working very hard the last couple of weeks learning routines, developing community, and focusing on learning new curriculum. The staff at Nashua have committed to providing each student with engaging educational experiences, exposing them to various types of literature, developing number sense and mathematical problem solving skills, along with challenging Science activities!

It is an honor to serve as the principal of Nashua Elementary! Thank you for trusting us with your children each day! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or myself directly.

As always, it's a great day to be a STAR!

~Mrs. Stukey

Lunch Visitors

We love when parents and grandparents visit our STARS during lunch! We ask that you always check in at the office, provide a photo ID, and pick up a Visitor's Badge. We also ask that you wait in the cafe for your child. Please do not go to the classroom to meet your child. We value instruction highly at Nashua and do not want to cause any disruptions to the learning process.

Build a strong partnership with your child's teacher right away

Have you ever watched children riding on a see-saw? They have to work together. If one child gets off, the other can't ride. That's a good way to think about your relationship with your child's teacher. If you work together, you can build a strong partnership. This partnership starts when you fill out the forms your child brings home. The teacher needs to know how her or she can contact you. If your contact information changes, let the office know.

You should also find time to talk with the teacher about your child. Plan to attend parent-teacher conferences. If you can't come to this event, ask the teacher if you can meet another time.

It is also important that you share information about your child with the teacher. Open communication is one key to your child's success.

Mrs. Cobb's Corner

Being in school every day means your child won't miss out on learning. Try to schedule appointments and family trips outside of school hours. If your child asks to stay home "just because", remind him or her what will be missed that day at school. Explain that students can be absent only if they are sick or if there's a family emergency.

The state of Missouri requires that 90% of our students attend school 90% of the time. In 2018, our attendance at Nashua was 99%, that's the highest in the district! Our goal this year is to maintain that number. Thank you for helping to support us in this area!
