Scholar’s Brunch

This morning our students enjoyed a delicious brunch sponsored by the NMS PTSG. Students feasted on donuts, fruit, bacon, cereal, and juice. Well deserved for working so hard this trimester! Thank you to the PTSG for providing the food and to Mrs. Bulkow, Mrs. Connelly, and Mrs. Morehouse for serving our students.

Penny Wars are on!



What is a Penny war?  Each grade will receive a jar to represent them in the cafeteria.  The goal is to have the most POSITIVE points in your grade’s jar at the end of Penny Wars.  To gain points for your grade put as many pennies as you can find into your jar!  To sabotage the other grades, stuff as many silver coins or dollars as you can into their jar!  The grade with the most positive points will wins!!


How do you get points?  Each penny is worth a point. All other coins are worth negative points.  In the Penny Wars a quarter is worth a Negative 25 points.  An example would be if your grade has 100 pennies and one quarter than you would have a total of 75 points.

What is everything worth?


1 penny= +1 point      1 nickel= -5 points   1 dime= -10 points


1 quarter= -25 points    1 dollar= -100 points   5 dollars= -500 points


10 dollars= -1000 points     20 dollars = -2000 points


So dig in your couches, check under the car seats and bring in your change from 3/1 -3/31! Jars are in the cafeteria during lunches!


All proceeds benefit NMS-PTSG

PTSG Opt-Out

NMS-PTSG Opt Out Program

Dear NMS Parents,

The PTSG is again offering families a way to help support the PTSG with a chance to opt out of all fundraisers for the 2016-17 school year. In order to continue our support of programs such as in-school field trips, classroom magazines, MCAS snacks, ice cream social, and Scholar’s Brunch,we are asking for a (voluntary) minimum family donation of $25 for the year. You will still receive fundraising materials as we cannot pick and choose who they are given to during the school day and do not want to burden teachers with specifics. Please recycle them and know that we are grateful for your opt out donation.

Please fill in the bottom portion of this form and return to school with your child if you would like to participate.

We are looking forward to a great year at NMS!
