We wanted to take a moment to propose an idea to our NSM community. We would like to start writing about the great things the people in our NSM community do – our school clubs, troops, our classes, our committees. But that takes all of you to help as well. If your club or troop, or class, or committee is doing something fun, great, different, or just noteworthy to people who may not know, drop us an email and let us know! If you have a picture that does not include people at the event, feel free to include that as well!
What we do know is that our children go to school each day; they learn about math, spelling, and so much more from their dedicated teachers, but when they get home and we ask “what did you do in school today?” they respond with “nothing”. (AS IF???) We may have heard there was a jog-a-thon last month to raise money for the fire victims in Lake County. But did you know that the school raised more than $7,500 for the American Red Cross? (I know my children did not come home and tell me that much information!) That is pretty great!
Wouldn’t it be nice to have small reminders, small moments of “That is wonderful!”, small moments of gratitude for all of our NSM community? How about another example of this: Did you know the Yearbook Committee has recruited a few interested 8th Graders to help build the yearbook? What a great experience to work with photography and layouts! Look for them at events wearing their “Yearbook Press Pass”!
This first trimester of school has been incredibly jam packed with events and functions, it is incredible that such a small school community could make it all happen! But it did and we thank you!! We thank you over and over again.
So send us your short little notes about the great things that are happening, and they will be worked into the newsletter. Our disclaimer will be that we will not use individual children’s names and all news shorts will be posted after the event.
We look forward to hearing from everyone!
