December's coming . . .

Time just seems to fly between Thanksgiving and the winter holiday break.   Here are some important dates for families to be aware of during December:

The end of trimester 1--Friday, December 5th--is approaching.   This means students should be working NOW to have all assignments turned in to their teachers before THEN. Grade 5-8 students/parents are able to check student assignments on Powerschool.    

Many parents have attended (or scheduled) a parent/teacher conference by this time in the year.   If you missed that opportunity, please contact the school to arrange a meeting with your child's teacher(s), if necessary.  There are some conference times still available for Tuesday, December 2.

Friday, December 12th is report card day. Kindergarten-Grade 4 students will bring a paper copy home for review.   Parents should sign and return the envelope.    For 5-8th students, grades appear on Powerschool through your parent portal.  Grade 5-8 families will be provided a form to acknowledge they have reviewed the grades.  Please keep in mind, if you have questions about accessing grades on Powerschool, we will be happy to help you learn how to access grades.  Call the school if you have questions.

The NPTO book fair will be happening this month.  The book fair is held in the library before and after school, Monday, December 8-Friday, December 12.   We will also be open for business before and after the Winter Concert on Thursday, December 11th too.  The book fair is a great place to stock up on holiday gift giving.

Our winter concert is Thursday evening, December 11th.   The event begins at 6:30 pm.  

You should have received a letter in the mail explaining the school nutrition program and the importance of keeping informed of your child's lunch balance via mySchoolBucks. Meals are supposed to be paid in advance. No one is denied a meal at school, but students owing $6 or more will be offered an alternative to hot lunch.  The link to mySchoolBucks is on our website under "Parent Resources" or right here: myschoolbucks.    Finally, please keep in mind that if your family's circumstances change, you can apply for free or reduced lunch at any time during the school year.
