Please bring in an item for the SPCA!!! 

Mark your calendars dragons!! The 17th annual NMS Firefighter Challenge will take place on Wednesday March 1st.  For those of you who are not familiar with the challenge, it is one of the best days of the year. It is a day we celebrate our local firefighters through fierce competition, class camaraderie and school spirit.

For the month of October, we asked you to come together and help those in our community by bringing in non perishable food items. You guys did an awesome job by bringing in over 1200 pounds of food.  For the next  2 weeks leading up to the big event, we are asking you to do the same for our four legged friends. 
Let’s help out the Fredericton SPCA by filling the boxes that have been placed in your classrooms. Items such as food, treats, toys and kitty litter would be greatly appreciated. Items will be weighed and picked up weekly. Prizes are on the line for those classes who bring in the most food. 
Good luck and thank you!!

Thank-you Friends and Family of NMS!

The staff and Friends of NMS would like to thank everyone who took part in Teacher Staff Appreciation Events this week.  Many of our families donated food items, their time to help set up and clean up the pot luck event and prizes.

The potluck was a huge success and everyone certainly felt spoiled.  Your time was greatly appreciated by everyone.  We are very lucky to have such supportive families.
Many thanks,
