A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
I hope that this message finds everyone having enjoyed a restful and family-filled holiday break. It's incredibly hard to believe that we have turned the page on yet another calendar year - and 2020 nonetheless. It seems as if with each passing year, time accelerates. I tease our students all of the time that while we want them to grow into independent and future-driven individuals, we secretly want them to stay with us forever. Our students are pretty amazing.
Vacation time provides everyone an opportunity to rest and recharge. I hope that this was the case for you and your family. While the break from the steady and busy pace is always greatly appreciated, it is also great to see our hallways filled with staff and students again.
We are very grateful for our Lancaster community, and it is an honor and a privilege to step into a new decade with all of you. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child's life journey. 2020 here we come!
Yours in partnership,

Goal Setting Workshop for 7th and 8th graders - NRSD Extended Learning
We are pleased to announce a new six-week program starting in February, specifically for 7th & 8th graders, focused on goal setting. These interactive workshops will teach students how to develop S.M.A.R.T goals and help them prepare for high school. In support of the District's Goal #1, "To intentionally integrate social-emotional practices across all settings in the Nashoba school community," these workshops will encourage students to have open conversations about their goals & dreams. Music and art will be integrated to inspire and engage students.
