Principally Speaking

Welcome Back to School!

Can you believe another school has begun? At Nashua, we strive to work together to provide incredible learning experiences for our star students. Throughout the school year, we will emphasize high achievement and expectations through active learning, character growth, and community building.

Our students will spend time engaged in high levels of reading and writing every single day along with a focus on developing an understanding of how numbers work and relate to one another. In addition, time will be spent exploring Science concepts using exploration and questioning. We will support the district’s initiatives of providing rigorous and relevant learning experiences while incorporating the Missouri Learning Standards.

Our theme this year is “Growth...The Pathway to Your Potential” Our goal this year is to empower our Stars to continually move toward success and grow!

As we kick off the new school year, you may notice a couple of new faces to our staff, please welcome:

Kali Schoening 4th grade

Ashley Atkinson 5th grade

Catherine Holmes 3rd grade

Sara Jennings Clerk

Lauren Erickson School Psychologist

As we work together, we will do everything possible to make the upcoming year a positive one. We’re excited for a great start to the school year! Thank you for all you do to support our Nashua Stars!
