Fundraising Drive is in full swing!

We are almost halfway through our fundraising drive and have had a good start with the donations brought in so far. Every student was given a donation envelope in which families can record their donation that they made online or they can . We still have a ways to go toward our school goal so keep them coming in! 
As a reminder, the money raised will contribute to a Modern Learning culture at NLPS by setting up innovative spaces for our students to create, connect, communicate, and share:

  • Primary, Junior, and Intermediate Learning Pods/Discovery Pods/Inquiry Pods (students will help with the name!)
  • Library Learning Commons & Makerspace
  • Technology Lab

We would like to set up Modern Learning spaces to spark innovative thinking and tap into students’ interests.  Student voice is essential - students will be involved in designing the spaces - from dreaming and reasoning, to implementation.

Cross-Country Running is alive and well at NLPS!

Last week NLPS sent over 90 students to represent our school at the Area Cross-Country meet. We had over 110 athletes training during the month of September! What a great sign of effort and perseverance by our students.
We had 4 teams qualify for the Regional Cross Country Meet on October 19th:
Grade 4 Girls finished 1st overall
Grade 5 Boys finished 2nd overall
Grade 7 Boys finished 3rd overall
Grade 8 Boys finished 2nd overall

Thank you to Mr. Higgins, Mr. Hughes and Ms. Allen for dedication their time to coach this time. Good luck at Regionals!
