Accelerated Reader

NMS has purchased AR again thanks to everyone who sold chances on the themed baskets.  Your child should know how to log on and take a test.  We do not have an incentive set yet but hope to very soon, so please encourage your child to read, read, and read!

Maroon and White Game

Our boys and girls basketball teams will be having the annual maroon and white game on April 17 at 1:00.  Parents are welcome to attend and concessions will be served.

No School

No school Friday, April 18


We had our last Thinklink test before spring break.  The 8th grade pulled it out and is on top again!  They had 93% in both Reading and Math proficient or advanced!  Outstanding!  5th grade had the largest gains in both Reading and Math! That is outstanding also! Almost every grade made gains!  All classes did wonderful.  Now, let’s show the TCAP what we are capable of doing!

Save the Date

TCAPs are scheduled for April 28-May 2!  Please do not schedule any appointments during this week.  Monday (April 28) will be Reading, Tuesday (April 29) will be Math, Wednesday (April 30) will be Science and Thursday (May 1) will be Social Studies. It is very important for your child to be here every day during TCAP. 

Visitors, Please Sign-In

Please remember to sign-in in the office and get a visitors pass when you visit the school.  All parents and/or guests are required by our school and district policy to abide by this requirement.  This is for the safety of our students, faculty, and staff.


Just a reminder, if your child misses school, please send a parent note or a doctors statement as soon as possible to avoid unexcused absences.  We have had a lot sick lately so please don’t forget to send a note when your child returns.
