 Summer Reading

In order to support academic performance, promote lifelong enthusiasm for reading, and foster a feeling of community in our school, students are encouraged to participate in the summer reading challenge. Our school’s reading theme is, Build a Better World! Students are to write or draw about their favorite book on a “special” leaf (available in the school library) to help our Reading Tree grow. Drop them off at the school library during the summer, or fill them out in September!

Here are a few guidelines to follow:

  • Please write your full name, title, and author on the leaf.

  • The written responses can be in the form of a summary, character description, or book recommendation.

  • All materials are on the school website.

The air conditioned NHRMS Library will be open most Wednesdays from 8:00-3:00 if you would like to borrow a book, sit and read, or watch an occasional movie! Attached is a list of possible book titles by grade level. We are also including some summer reading incentives from a few businesses. The two town libraries are also working in conjunction with the schools to provide every opportunity to read during the summer. What a great way to spend a hot summer day!

Principal's Message

Our first day of school is Wednesday, August 30th. The staff is working hard to get the building in perfect condition for the students.  

Open House will be held on Thursday, September 21st.

 

Reminder that every 4th grade student can come to the main office to receive his/her locker assignment and combination. You are welcome to practice opening your locker on almost any weekday this summer. Wednesdays are a popular time to visit, since the library is open for book exchange.

 

I would like to thank everyone for their support of our middle school this past year. I would especially like to thank MPAC for their fundraising efforts and for their help with our events ranging from first day to the book fair to the academic banquet. The students benefit tremendously from the close home to school connection that our community enjoys.

 

MPAC (Middle school Principal Advisory Council) is actively seeking new members and volunteers. This dedicated group of parents will host conversations on topics such as bullying, internet safety, school nutrition, cultural arts, and other day-to-day operations. You can find information about MPAC such as how to join or when the meetings are by accessing the link under the Parents tab on this website.       

 

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me at the school or through email.
