NBMS September Parent News

From the Principal:

It has been a wonderful start to the school year! Students and staff are settling in to routines and activities are starting to be scheduled. I have included an Upcoming Events section below so you can add all important dates to your calendar. You will also find important dates on the district website.

Throughout this year, we will be highlighting successes on campus. We will celebrate acts of kindness, students of the week, and positive school events. Students will be setting goals in their classes and working hard to meet them. We will also focus on community service throughout the year. We have already started an attendance incentive to motivate students to be at school.

Communication between the school and parents is vital to your child's education, so please feel free to contact me with any concerns or ideas for NBMS. I look forward to a great year! As always, it is a GREAT day to be a LION!

Lindsay Skinner, Principal
