Ms. Porter's Monthly Message

Hello Nob Hill Families and Community,


It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year at Nob Hill. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. I cannot wait to hear from the students about their summer adventures. For returning families, I look forward to continuing to serve you, your children, and the entire Nob Hill community. For families new to Nob Hill, I am excited to meet you and your child, and know that we are all here to support your child to transitioning to an amazing school. Our staff and school community are committed to providing the best educational experience possible for your child. Let us know how we can help!


It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected and a part of our Nob Hill family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities. We have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers utilize best practices and student data to determine current levels and to set goals for growth and improvement. It is through this hard work that I am excited to share with you that we received a school grade “A” based on our student assessment results! Our theme this year is “TEAM- Teach, Encourage, Achieve, and Motivate”. It is with this framework that we will continue our success.


I am very happy to introduce to you our new Assistant Principal, Mrs. Susana Cruz. Mrs. Cruz comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and experiences! She is excited to get to know all of you and is eager to work with the entire school community to support the academic and social growth of each of our Nob Hill students. Please take the time to introduce yourself to her when you see her on campus.


We cannot do the work we do without you, and each year we strive to strengthen our home-school partnership. We encourage each of you to set a goal to become more engaged in the Nob Hill school community. Attend a Parent Night, take time to volunteer at the school, or join a school committee such as the school Parent Teacher Association or School Advisory Committee. We are fortunate to have a wonderful parent community, and your support makes a huge difference. Thank you for your commitment in helping make Nob Hill an amazing place for students to grow and learn.


The Nob Hill Staff is back to work and ready to assist you with any needs you may have. We are also eagerly preparing for the return of our students on the first day of school on Tuesday, August 16th. We look forward to seeing all our families at Meet and Greet on Monday, August 15th. Teachers will be reaching out on Friday, August 12th to introduce themselves. Make sure to check your voicemail in case you miss the call! Please let us know any way that we can serve your family’s educational needs in the coming year and welcome back!


Warmly,

Traci Porter

Principal

Mrs. Cruz

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! I am honored to be the newly assigned Assistant Principal at Nob Hill Elementary. Your children are my top priority, and it is my goal to work together with Ms. Porter to see that each student succeeds socially, emotionally, and academically.

Our theme this school year is “TEAM Up and Succeed Together”. I truly believe that schools need parents and families to play an active role in our children’s education. I encourage everyone to participate in any way that you can, whether it is by joining our PTA, volunteering at the school, or by just keeping in constant communication with our teachers and staff members.


Please feel free to contact me to discuss your child or just to say hello!

Your proud Assistant Principal,

Media Center Minutes

We are starting the 2022-2023 school with a refreshed Media Center and a lot of excitement for the stories we will share, interesting things we will learn, and great books we will enjoy this school year. Book checkout for students will start a few weeks into the new school year. Until then, please access the many online reading resources available to your child as a student in Broward County Schools. Information for online books can be found at: www.tinurl.com/NobHillReads

Nob Hill Elementary and our PTA will be having an EARLY book fair this year. Information will be sent home for our Book Fair in September. If you are interested in helping at the books fair, please register to be a volunteer through the Broward County Schools website and email Mr. Rowe or our wonder PTA.

In the first quarter of this school year, our Fourth graders will be getting a special gift that the whole family will be able to use. After we complete a series of lessons from the National Park Service, fourth graders will receive a ticket for a yearlong America the Beautiful pass which will get them and their entire family into any National Park (and many State parks) for FREE during their fourth-grade year. If your student in not in fourth grade yet, they will be participating in the program when they reach fourth grade. We are in our 12th year doing the Every Kid Outdoor program.

Finally, if you are interested in helping as a volunteer in the media center this year, please register through the Broward County Schools website as a volunteer and then contact Mr. Rowe at David.Rowe@browardschools.com Let's have a great 2022-2023 year.
