A Place Where We Can Connect
Celebrating Adult Education Week!
Dear NLMAS Families,
Spring Session II has started which means we are heading to the finish line. Thank you all for weathering the storms (literally) to be here. We hope that each day you are getting one step closer to reaching your goals and celebrating your little successes along the way.
March 21-25th was Adult Education Week. And, we celebrated the week by recognizing the four NLMAS recipients of the California Adult Education Student Succeed Awards for 2022. These four nominees all made sacrifices and overcame barriers to receive their high school diplomas and move on to higher education or rewarding careers. Please check out their stories below through the links under their pictures. We also know there are many untold stories of successes here at NLMAS and we look forward to hearing more of your stories soon.
Please continue to reach out to staff and teachers on how we can continue to make this place an inviting and enriching learning environment for you. We hope you enjoy a restful spring break and that you return refreshed to finish off strong. Thank you as always for choosing NLMAS as your school of choice.
