NP³ Elementary 2021-2022

Matey Message

Matey Message Week 14 November 15-19

Be awesome, be amazing, be you.

Dear Matey Families,

Today is the last day that NP3 is accepting applications. Any application turned in after today (11-15-21) will not be included in our spring lottery. You can apply online or in person.

Next week brings your families a much-needed break. I hope you all get to spend time with your loved ones and get to create new memories.

When we return to school your teachers will send out conference invites. Quarter 2 conferences will need to be virtual. Grade-level teachers will provide more details. These conferences are student-led and very similar to your quarter 1 conference.

Sikh Awareness Month and Contest

During the month of November, California celebrated Sikh Awareness and Appreciation Month. In support of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and our Sikh community, we invite all students to participate in a poster/writing contest to spread awareness and appreciation of diversity. Students are asked to illustrate the theme in a hand drawing or one-page essay about the importance/important information about Sikh culture.

Sikh Awareness Poster/Writing Contest:

Leader in Me: Daily Routine Planning Tool

Looking to help students and their families create empowered leadership routines? Check out this Daily Routine Planning Tool.

Student Store/Family Apparel: We are excited to partner with an online Spiritwear Company to offer new NP3 merchandise. All purchases are made directly through the online store and will be shipped to your home. Please make sure to check the sizing charts, as they cannot process returns, as each item is custom-made. Here is the link.

Happy Shopping. The Black Friday sale lasts through the month of November.

COVID-19 Updates: Sierra Health and Natomas Unified School District (NUSD)

Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine has received emergency use authorization for 5 to 11-year-olds. Below is information about how to schedule an appointment for My Turn California and COVID-19 (through Natomas Unified School District (NUSD) and Sierra Health).

Families looking to vaccinate children ages 5 to 11 can visit or contact their primary care provider for available appointments, however, it will likely be a few more days until appointments for this age group are widely available.

Some providers, including retail pharmacies, are already scheduling appointments on their websites, but many providers are still receiving their pediatric vaccine supply and making final preparations to vaccinate 5 to 11-year-olds.

From NUSD Superintendent Evans:

NUSD Staff and Key Stakeholders,

In this extraordinary time of a pandemic, political divisiveness, and other stressors our plates are already full. But I am asking for your help right now. It can be a quick effort or extended - your choice. I promise that your feedback matters and IS NEEDED because a decision in 13 days will radically change how this district is led and your students are served.

Below are questions that I need you to consider. You can answer 1 or all of them (and everything in between). This can be anonymous or if you share your email we will share a participation badge you can add to your email that recognizes your assistance. We don’t even need your name. Just an email gets you a badge.

Please complete this survey:
