Principally Speaking

It seems cliche to say that this school year has absolutely flown by. However, it is now April and we only have 2 months left of the 2018/19 school year. Even though only a short time is left, we have multiple opportunities for involvement and participation coming up in April and May.

Beginning Tuesday, April 8, all students in grades 3-5 will begin taking the MAP assessment. Testing and make-up days run from April 8th-May 5th. Please make sure your child is on time to school those days, has plenty of rest at night, and eats a healthy breakfast. All of our students and teachers have worked diligently this year to prepare for this test. We want our students to "show what they know" on those days. Please encourage you child to do their very best.

Our Kindergartner and 5th grade will be having their annual music programs in April as well. The Kindergarten performance will be on April 25th at 6:30 pm at New Mark Middle School. The 5th grade performance will be on April 30th at 6:30 pm at New Mark Middle School. We ask all guests to wait in the New Mark Lobby until 6:25 pm so students can finalize their performance with minimal distractions.

Learning does not end just because we finish our state tests. We will continue to involve your child in deep, rich learning experiences that will set the foundation for success. I hope to see you at some of our activities. As always, it is a privilege to serve as the principal at Nashua Elementary!

Last Early Release Day will be April 18, 2019

2019-20 Class Placement

Class placement is a team decision here at Nashua with many factors taken into consideration. If you feel your child has specific needs to be considered, please contact the office for a form. All forms must be returned to the office by Tuesday, April 9th. We will not honor specific teacher requests.

Summer School Enrollment Forms

All summer school enrollment forms must be turned into the office by April 19th. We will not be taking enrollment forms after this date. As in years past, we do have a large enrollment for Summer School. To ensure your spot this summer, please turn your forms in early as classes are formed on a first come first serve basis.
