The NMS PTSG is in need of parent volunteers to help with the Grade 8 BBQ and dance next Friday, June 23. Let’s make this a great event for our students! All volunteers must have a completed CORI. This can be done with Mrs. Nee in the office. Please sign up using the link below. Thanks in advance!
All students who wish to participate in sports must have a physical within one year of starting the school sport. This is ideally done by your child’s pediatrician. A sports physical does not take place of an annual physical exam.
This year, Westford Pediatrics will be offering sports physicals for grade 8 students only. They will take place on June 16, 2017.
Please go to the NM athletics webpage to sign up and complete paperwork.
