Students with symptoms of intestinal illness (diarrhea and vomiting) should be symptom free before returning to school.  





Tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 27th is Spring sibling picture day. Students may wear school appropriate Spring attire (no denim). Students must wear school appropriate shoes but they can bring Spring sandals to change into for pictures.


Sibling group pictures will be taken during the scheduled time of the YOUNGEST sibling. MS/HS siblings should report to the gym at the time of the YOUNGEST sibling.

There are many jackets in the Lost and Found with no names. Can you help your child identify their jacket?  


Parents, remember to put your child's FIRST AND LAST NAME on all of their school "stuff". We will immediately return any item found with a student's name on it. Items found that we can't identify will be kept for 1 week and then donated to appropriate agencies.

P.E. Days

Parents, please make sure students remember to wear tennis shoes on days they have PE, especially on dress up days. The kids want to play, but wearing heel boots or any boots and flats can cause injuries.  




MEN-tor Program

NBH MEN-tors program is designed for a dad, or father figure, to be able to come to the school and volunteer for the day. Dads will be given a schedule that will allow them to spend time in their child’s classroom and special areas, along with helping in the lunch room and monitoring hallways. MEN-tors will also be given a free t-shirt and their picture taken with their child to be put on the recognition board. This is a great opportunity to get 8 volunteer hours completed.
