Jeans Day and Dress Down Passes:
January 16th is a full dress down pass for staff and students.  There will be no charge for this date. Students may want to wear their any special outfits that they may have received for the holidays. Students may wear clothes permitted by the NNPS Dresscode for non-uniformed schools. Many students have asked if they could wear “joggers” (which are the popular jogging style pants that are tapered at the ankle). This is okay since they are allowed along with sweatsuits, etc. at all NNPS Middle Schools. Pajama pants are NOT allowed. Enjoy this special day!

Algebra and Geometry Classes?
Is your child taking Algebra or Geometry classes?  Are they struggling?  Algebra and Geometry (as well as Earth Science and HS Spanish) require a different level of rigor- but the study skills that got your exceptional student to the level that they can take such difficult classes will stand them well in becoming successful in these more challenging classes.  Please use the resources for Algebra and Geometry- other resources coming soon.

After School Activities
Intramurals, Clubs and Activities will begin on Tuesday, September 23rd.  Activity buses will run at 4:30pm.  For a list of activities check out the clubs and activities page!  For extra help and tutoring, contact your child's teachers.
