Bricks 4 Kids - 3rd - 5th Graders

Join Bricks 4 Kidz on Thursdays beginning February 1st - March 8th (6 week session).  Enrolling now!


Session Theme:  Mission to Space  


Space, often called “the last frontier”, has inspired scientists, star-gazers and adventurers for generations. Get inspired to go on your own adventure and join us on a Mission 2 Space! Discover some incredible structures at Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39, travel the surface of the moon on a lunar rover, and explore Mars onboard the “Curiosity”. Our tour would not be complete without a visit to the International Space Station. We’ll provide the tools, all you need to bring for this adventure is your imagination!  For more information see attached flyer or click here to enroll



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!

Lost and Found

Items will be returned to the students if the item has a student's name in/on it. This is very important! PUT YOUR CHILD'S NAME IN/ON LUNCHBOXES, WATER BOTTLES, COATS, SWEATSHIRTS, etc. Items without a name in/on them will be kept for one week and then will be donated to an agency that helps others from our area. NBH jackets without names will be placed in the PTSP Used Clothes Closet.





There will be PTSP volunteer opportunities coming up soon with carnival just around the corner. Please watch for eblasts and information.


Always be watching for volunteer opportunities and checking with your teachers for opportunities as well. 





We will begin our spring drive later this month. I will begin picking up box tops from the front office this week. Please remember to label your box tops with your child's name and teacher's name. Please see the attached flyer for more information. We blew our goal for the school year out of the water already, so let's see what we can do this semester!


Thank you for all you do and your ongoing support!
