Student Leadership is a student led organization that welcomes students in grades 6 - 8 to work together to promote: school spirit, positive school culture, inclusion of all students, and a stronger sense of empathy by supporting various charitable organizations. While some events and activities like the Fall Food Drive, Spring Spirit Week, and ongoing Courtyard Improvements, are annual, Student Leaders get to choose projects and activities in which they are interested - as long as they fall into one of our three initiatives: School Improvement, School Spirit and Service.
Regular (virtual or in-person) monthly meetings will be held for all members. Sub Committees meet more during particular projects and events; based on student schedules and availability.
This year's Student Leadership advisors are:
- Erien Gordon - Grade 6
- Jim Gosselin - Grade 7
- Rebecca Melnick - Grade 8
The yearbook is designed to highlight and commemorate each grade and their most memorable times at NAMS. A collection of student pictures, candids, faculty and most important events are included each year. The NAMS Yearbook Club is composed of students wishing to be yearbook photographers and/or be a part of the yearbook design. Yearbook photographers are asked to cover all aspects of student life – from classroom activities to after-school activities. The yearbook design staff helps with the layout of the yearbook and at the end of the year,organizes the yearbook distribution.
Yearbook is a great way to meet new friends and express yourself creatively, and each student's contribution to the yearbook can be seen come to fruition when the yearbook arrives in June!
