We want to hear from you!

Dear Families,

Thank you all for a great start to the 2022-23 school year! I am so grateful to all the staff at North Branch Area Public Schools for getting our schools and grounds ready, and for warmly welcoming each student and family!

As we start a new school year, we want to hear from you! To help us celebrate areas of strength and identify opportunities for improvement, we would appreciate your input on this survey. It will take approximately five minutes to complete.

Thank you for the privilege of serving you as we continue moving forward together!

Meet School Resource Officer Mike Nelson

Officer Mike Nelson, a 2013 NBAPS graduate, is starting his fourth school year. He serves all of the schools in the district.

"I am looking forward to an awesome school year!," said Officer Nelson, adding, "When you see me in the hallways please say hi! My biggest piece of advice to students is to not let social media control your life. Also, enjoy every minute of your school career and make the most of it! Participate in anything that may interest you whether it is academically, activities, or socially offered by the school district!"

Look for a monthly feature from Officer Nelson in future newsletters.
