WEEKLY NEWSLETTER: NPMS News

  • FOR THE WEEK OF: OCTOBER 21st, 2019


    NO SCHOOL

    There will be no school on October 21st – October 23rd due to Teacher Professional Development.


    MEET THE CANDIDATES FOR SCHOOL BOARD

    Residents are approaching an election where three of our five school board seats will be on the November 5 ballot. As a district, we feel it is important that our community members are informed of the election process and prepared to cast their ballots. Statements have been gathered from each of the school board candidates, and profiles have been compiled on the district’s website.  


     THE COMET CHRONICLES

    Please follow the link to read the first issue of the 2019-2020 Comet Chronicle. The online newspaper was created by the 7th grade Journalism Exploratory. The students led the project by interviewing, writing, and editing. As they prepared to publish, they decided where to place the stories and images. Be sure to click the tabs in the right hand corner to view all of their work. Enjoy!
