END OF THE 1st NINE WEEKS - THIS TUESDAY, 10/18!
The end of the first nine weeks is THIS TUESDAY, October 18th so there are just a few more days to reach your goals!
On October 28th NMS will be hosting a "Harvest Happenin'" awards day for students who have achieved certain goals during the first nine weeks. To be invited to this award event, students must not have any F's and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA on their first 2022-2023 report card.

Just a few more days to work hard and achieve those goals! Parents, look for report cards to come home on October 25th!

SCHOOL BOND COMMUNITY INFORMATION SESSIONS
A school bond is a financial instrument issued by a public school district to finance approved capital projects. The Berkeley County Board of Education is placing a bond measure on the November 8, 2022 ballot.
Funds raised from a bond must be used for construction, renovation, and improvements to schools. The funds cannot be used for general operations or salaries. Simply put, bonds are for buildings.
Our School Superintendent, Ron Stephens, will be holding several community information sessions about the proposed school bond.

A COOL THING HAPPENED IN CLASS...
Another out-of-this world event occurred in the library this week, as Ms. Mills' classes had to find the launch codes to save the planet from an asteroid! Luckily, most of our students were able to find clues and open the locks to their Breakout boxes and save the planet, while learning about online databases at the same time! This "escape room"-type activity was extremely motivating to all of the students, causing them to problem solve, persevere, work as a team, and use their knowledge of the library.
