Matey Message

Matey Message Week 12 November 1-5

Make today so awesome yesterday is jealous.

Dear Matey Families,

Thank you so much for both attending and supporting our Halloween Parade at Blackbird Park (Friday)! The staff and students had so much fun creating a new tradition and memory. Trick-or-treating at the high school was everything we all hoped for. The high school students' excitement to create an experience for the students paired with the elementary students' enthusiasm warmed all our hearts.

I personally want to thank our families who helped make our parade a safe event. We continue to follow Sacramento County's health and safety protocols. Your assistance and cooperation are greatly appreciated.

On a side note, several families asked about volunteering at NP3 Elementary. YES, you can volunteer if you are vaccinated, complete an NUSD volunteer packet, and adhere to NP3 safety protocols! Please note that the volunteer packet is always attached to the Matey Message. It can also be downloaded at

Community Outreach: Welcome Home Bathroom Baskets

In an effort to help our Sacramento Afghan families and Afghan refugees, NP3 Elementary is partnering with Sacramento Food Bank to create "Bathroom Baskets" for newly arriving Afghan refugees.

The Bathroom Baskets will feature toiletries collected from students and families. We are asking each classroom community to consider donating one item from the list attached. Donations will be accepted the week of November 1-5.

Please review the attached flyer to see what item your student's classroom is responsible for. If you have any questions, you may contact Mrs. Draper at

Runnin’ for Rhett

The Rhett Foundation has partnered with Sneakers4Funds. The program takes your gently used sneakers and returns money to the Rhett organization.

Any questions or donations please ask Mr. Jones.

Leader in Me: Habit 2 Begin with the End in Mind

Have a Plan! A family mission statement is like a constitution your family lives by. It represents the purpose and values of your family. Mission statements come in many forms. Some are long, some are short. They can take form as a phrase, saying, a picture, a poem, or even a song. Make it personal to your family.

Construction Updates:

If weather permits, we should see our building walls going up this week!
