Principally Speaking

We are officially into the 7th month of the 2019-2020 school year. February brings visits from Punxsutawney Phil, Cupid, and Mother Nature! This year is looking to be no different as we hunker down to endure more harsh weather this month. Please remember to dress your STAR learner for winter weather and recess. Our students will be going outside if the temperature or windchill is above 25 degrees, and the playground is clear of snow and ice. Coats, hats, and gloves should be sent to school each day during the winter months.


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 learner 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.

Calling Incoming Kindergartners!

If you have a child who will be turning 5 before August 1, 2019 please call the Nashua School Office at 321-5160 to begin the enrollment process. Mark your calendars for Kindergarten Round-Up on March 26th from 6:00-7:30 pm

Spring Party Guidelines

Please remember we do not allow food items to be brought to school for parties. If your child is passing out Valentine's on Feb. 13th. We ask that you attach a non-food item to the Valentines.
