Principally Speaking

It is officially October already and fall is in full swing! It is during this time of year that we begin to see our Star Learners making growth in their learning. Routines and procedures have been practiced and mastered; the real fun of learning is well underway. The staff at Nashua continues to focus their attention on providing the very best educational opportunities they can to each and every student they see on a daily basis.

Thank you for sending your Star Learner to school every day well rested and prepared for the day! Here at Nashua, we believe every day is a great day to be a STAR!
