Principally Speaking

It seems cliche to say that this school year has absolutely flown by. However, it is now April and we only have 2 months left of the 2020-21 school year.

Beginning Monday, April 26, all students in grades 3-5 will begin taking the MAP assessment. Testing and make-up days run through the middle of June. Please make sure your child is on time to school those days, has plenty of rest at night, and eats a healthy breakfast. All of our students and teachers have worked diligently this year to prepare for this test. We want our students to "show what they know" on those days. Please encourage you child to do their very best.

Learning does not end just because we finish our state tests. We will continue to involve your child in deep, rich learning experiences that will set the foundation for success. I hope to see you at some of our activities. As always, it is a privilege to serve as the principal at Nashua Elementary!
