NAMS Message to Families - 9/9/22

Hello NAMS Families,

I hope that this message finds you and your loved ones well. As we conclude week 2 of the school year, I hope that your families are reestablishing those important school routines. Our new 6th graders are transitioning well to middle school, our 7th graders are getting comfortable in their new grade and on their new teams, and our 8th grade students and school leaders have adjusted well so far to their final year of middle school. We are looking forward to a great year and look forward to our partnership with you, our families.

Below you will find important information and reminders.


Wednesday, September 14th - Early Release Day

  • Students will be dismissed at 1:05 p.m. on Wednesday, September 14th.


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.
