A Message From Principal Choquette 5/17/19
What a wonderful talent show last night! Our students were amazing and the talent that they shared was just remarkable. We had a variety of acts that including singing, dancing, gymnastics, comedic relief, coding, yo-yo amazingness, and musical instrument playing. It was all wonderful. Thank you so much to Geoff Sandborn for organizing the talent show again this year and thank you to all of the families who helped put it all together and for supporting your children's talented side.
As many of you may have heard, the teachers unit of the NPS have voted to work-to-rule starting on Monday. Please see the attachment below that contains a letter from Dr. Provost as well as a fact sheet regarding work-to-rule. We all are hopeful that the parties can come to an agreement soon. Please be assured that my priority is your children and that I will do everything in my power to ensure they continue to receive high quality education. I know all parties are working hard to resolve this. I urge you to fight at the state level in getting funding for education changed as times have changed and our children and their needs have changed. Our teachers are committed and dedicated, they work endless hours to ensure your children receive only the best, and love and care for every single student that walks through our doors.
Thank you for your continuous support of our teachers, our school, and our children. Have a wonderful weekend.
On June 4th at 3:30 p.m. we will hold an "official opening" ceremony of our new library. Lite refreshments will be served by our PTO. We hope you can join us!

We now have had the Gaga Ball Pit for 3 weeks, but as with anything that is new, the novelty can wear off and although our students are having a blast, I want to hear from you regarding any concerns you may have and the positives that your kids are talking about. Please email me any concerns and joys that your students are experiencing at email@example.com
