Hello NAMS Families,

I hope that this message finds you and your loved ones well. Below you will find information and reminders. I would like to first ask for your help in filling some positions at NAMS.

 

Are you interested in working at NAMS?

We are in the process of reviewing applications and hiring for the following 3 positions.

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

  • Today is the last day to volunteer!

  • 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 17, 2022. 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 the end of the day today, Friday, September 16, 2022.

  • We will then invite all NAMS parents/guardians to vote for the 3 parent/guardian representatives next week.

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