1. NAMS Grade 6 Directory

The NAMS Parent Teacher Advisory Council (PTAC) would like to invite you to add your information in the NAMS Grade 6 Directory.  You may complete the survey here or at the following address: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfvXSR_joPqS30XYHsyBZaYN1qNXUbh0P9zKFQmNiFLRSvIMw/viewform?usp=sf_link

The Google form will collect contact information for those who wish to provide it.  Each family who participates will then receive a copy of the directory once all of the information is compiled. This is done yearly at the elementary schools and the tradition continues in grade 6 each year.

 

2. Annual Grade 6 Team Building Field Trip

We would like to welcome your child to the NAMS community and wish them a productive and fun-filled year. It is a NAMS tradition for the 6th grade class to participate in team-building activities in hopes of fostering friendships, alleviating anxiety and strengthening our 6th grade community. During the week of September 13th, your child will be participating in "6th Grade Camp" Students will be broken out by teams and will have the opportunity to participate in various activities such as kayaking, paddle boarding, cooperative games, etc. All activities will take place at Stevens Pond and Weir Hill.  You may find more information about this trip here.

These forms will be distributed to grade 6 students tomorrow, Thursday, September 2, 2021.

 

3. Are you interested in being on the NAMS School Council this year?

We are looking for 3 parents/guardians to be members of this year’s NAMS School Council. Each public school has a school council consisting of the school principal, teachers, and parents/guardians of students currently attending the school. The council will work together to help shape the school culture, assist to identify educational needs of the students, develop a school improvement plan and ensure the district plan is implemented.  

The NAMS school council will be composed of 3 teachers, 3 parents/guardians, 2 grade 8 students, and a community member is possible. A parent/guardian position may be shared by more than one parent. 

This year’s School Council Meetings will take place on Monday afternoons from 2:35-3:35 p.m. with the first meeting scheduled for October 4, 2021. Future dates will be determined after the first meeting.

If you are interested in being a member of this year’s NAMS School Council, please complete the google form found here by Friday, September 10, 2021.

We will then invite all NAMS parents/guardians to vote for the 3 parent/guardian representatives beginning on Tuesday, September 14, 2021.

You can learn more about the responsibilities of school councils here.
