Good morning NAMS Families,

As we begin our last day of school before our holiday break, I would like to thank you for your support of our school and its staff. I’m fortunate to work in a community who cares this much about our students and it shows every day with a smile here, a fist bump there, and the appreciated “please” and “thank you”. Our students have grown quite a bit academically and socially over the last few months and I’m excited to see how much more they grow and achieve after the new year. I hope that you are able to enjoy this upcoming holiday vacation with family and friends.

  • December Early Release Days

  • School Resumes on Tuesday, January 2, 2024
