Dear NMS families,
We are writing to inform you of an amazing opportunity for your student to show school spirit as well as participate in a community event to support their peers. We are proud to announce that on April 28, nineteen amazing special education students will represent our school by participating in the Special Olympics School Day Games at Fitchburg State University! This is not only a wonderful accomplishment for them, but also something that they greatly look forward to all year.
We will be hosting our second annual Special Olympics Send-off on April 28 to encourage the team, show them that the whole school is behind them, and wish them luck with their big day! Last year’s Send-off was a huge hit with both the athletes and the students/faculty, and we are hoping to have an even bigger turnout this year. The Send-off is a surprise event for the athletes, and takes place before school at 7:15am in the NMS lobby. Students can be dropped off early for the event, and then stay for the school day. We know that this is early for all of us, which makes the athletes feel even more special to have your support!
Feel free to bring pom poms, posters, and more to cheer on the athletes as they walk down the “red carpet.” Also, don’t forget your NMS Spirit wear and/or red and white apparel. (We will also have first come, first serve Dunkin Donuts munchkins available for breakfast!)
We hope that this will be a fun, school-spirit fostering, and enjoyable event for all attendees. As always, your support is greatly appreciated.
Hope to see you there,
The NMS Student Council

If you are interested in being a representative for Student Council, now is your chance! 1-2 representatives from each homeroom will be chosen to attend a meeting biweekly (every other week) on Mondays. In order to join Student Council, you will need to write a 2 to 3 paragraph essay explaining why you are interested in joining Student Council. Essays should include: what contributions you can make to the program, any new ideas that you would like the Student Council to take part in, and any experience you have with community service or student leadership (including prior years on Student Council).
Student Council is an opportunity to become a leader in our school and to have your ideas heard! You can make a difference.
Please turn in your essays on the Student Council Google Classroom (the code is bbhq4hi on classroom.google.com) by Monday Sept. 28. Our first meeting is tentatively scheduled for Monday October 5. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Robinson in Room 315. We can’t wait to hear your ideas!
The Student Council is sponsoring a hat day this Friday. Student can pay $1 to wear a hat. Proceeds will go to the Nashua Humane Society.
Also, there are still many tickets available for the Community Center Dance this Friday for students in grades 6-8. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5.
