We encourage you to look through each edition, where you will find the most up-to-date information regarding school events, news and important information regarding your student's high school experience. I would love to hear your feedback on other information you would like to read about in the newsletter. Email me at framirez@nlmusd.k12.ca.us with any suggestions.
