There will be a winner in each grade level. The winners will receive 25 tickets to the carnival!

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!

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.
