Note from Mrs. Baker
As I walk through the school each day, I am truly taken aback by the high level of learning that is happening in our building. Students are engaged, asking thoughtful questions, challenging each other and giving 100% each and every day. I see students holding each other accountable and being true leaders. It has been so exciting to see our returning students be positive role models to our new students. The bar of excellence is being raised each day.
I am excited to announce that our campus has earned 16,075 crests this year! Our kids are awesome.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us.
1. Only drop students off in the drop off zone. Dropping anywhere else, including 1st street is incredibly dangerous.
2. Only turn right out of the parking lot. Use the roundabout East of the school if you need to go west.
3. The Brookstone Apartments are not a turnaround and it is posted. Please use the roundabout East of the school.
4. Move only when NVCS Staff motion you to do so.
5. Avoid cell phone usage during Driveline.
6. Join Driveline only at the end of the line. In the afternoon, this may be past Denver. Please do not cut in line at the intersection at 1st and Denver.
7. You may not join Driveline in the afternoon from the East.
8. Unload students only from the passenger sides.
9. We have staff to help load and unload students, no need for you to get out of your car.
10. Have an extra dose of patience, grace, and kindness to keep everyone safe. The staff and students are moving as fast as we can to get your kids to and from school safely.

Message from Principal Hejl
I have been so grateful for the support I have received and the kindness that has come my way as my family and I have been evacuated from our home this past week due to the wildfires. I am so happy to let you know that we received news yesterday that we are able to return home and that our home is still standing. We are so thankful to the firefighters and first responders who faught to keep our precious land and home safe. Thank you to all who have reached out, having such an amazing place to work made this difficult time easier.
Thank you to all of the parents who attended our parent teacher conferences. Your partnership is essential in our ability to support your students and help them maximize their potential! To those of you who missed conferences, we still encourage you to reach out to your student's teacher regularly and build a strong partnership with them during the 20-21 school year!.
We are very excited to host our first ever virtual talent show! I have had the pleasure of getting a sneak peak at our performances and cannot tell you how incredibly impressed I am by our students talent in areas ranging from science to musical performances! Please join us for our Youtube live stream of this event (event details below).
I hope that all of you have a wonderful weekend. Hold your loved ones tight, appreciate the little things, and be the kindness you hope to see in the world!

KidsPak Weekend Hunger Relief Program Offered at NVCS
KidsPak is a weekend hunger relief program run by Loveland Rotary for children and families in the TSD community. KidsPak currently serves 39 schools, including New Vision. NVCS partners with KidsPak by identifying students and families that would benefit from receiving extra food for the weekends. KidsPak partners with Larimer County Food Bank to create a special menu each week, so the food varies week to week. The food packs are delivered to NVCS and given to students in a plastic bag that does not need to be returned.
If your student and family is in need and could benefit from this service please fill out the form below. KidsPak does not require families to meet certain qualifications or provide proof of need. NVCS families utilizing the KidsPak service will be kept confidential.
