Celebrate Presence!

Thank you and a big celebration to everyone who is out and about before class, after class, during snack break or lunch. NP3 recognizes this is on your time, but it makes a BIG difference to the student community and it is appreciated! This is especially important during the end of the year - during the height of spring fever.


Staff and teacher presence have many benefits! Every time you choose to be present outside of class, it increases and ensures safety on the Pirate campus. This is still needed and important, especially during this time of year. You're a role model! Your visibility also makes you available - students can see you - and students can build relationships with you outside of the classroom! Your presence also shows students you value what you do. All good things. Thank you for all you do!
