On Monday, October 31 (Halloween) we will be having a spirit day. Students should wear Black and Orange! Please note that students SHOULD NOT wear Halloween costumes to school.
On Thursday, October 27, students will be dismissed at 11:05 so that teachers can engage in meaningful professional development. A reminder that there is NO breakfast or lunch served on early release days.
A note from the high school….
Our Eighth Grade Open House is coming up on Thursday November 3, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. This is an opportunity for middle school students and their parents to take in the academic and extracurricular opportunities at NM. The evening will begin in the auditorium, where parents and students will be introduced to the department chairs, and I will take a few moments to share the vision and direction of the school. Following these introductions, parents and students can make their own way around the school (maps will be provided). Each department will have staff and students available to answer questions, there will be displays, sample lessons in progress, and activities. There will also be an activities fair, Pat the Patriot will be on hand, and the school will be full of our current students.
First Trimester Progress Reports go home with students today. Please take a moment to review this report with your child and direct any questions to the classroom teacher. Please encourage your child to stay the course! Completing homework and projects on time is important. We are only at the halfway point in the trimester and students have plenty of opportunities to improve their performance.
