We are excited to announce that Northfield will be celebrating Start with Hello week from February 12-15, 2018. During this week, we will be placing extra emphasis on the Start with Hello mission of empowering students to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness in our school.
This year, our theme will be “Start your day with Hello”. We all know how important it is to start our day off on the right foot. Positive interactions on the way to and at school increase the likelihood that a child will have a successful day where he or she feels a strong sense of connectedness, belonging, and engagement. Staff greet students at the door each morning and teachers greet students upon entering the classroom, but let’s ensure this simple practice starts even earlier—on the bus, on the bike path, and on the walking routes to NES! Throughout the week, we will be more intentional to model and highlight these positive interactions.
What’s happening during Start with Hello week?
These are the proposed NES PTA bylaws, newly updated and amended. The changes, upon a general membership vote, will be implemented next year and carry through the year 2021. As per the National PTA requirement, we must update our bylaws every three years.
Please open each document and have a look at the bylaws and addendums. If you have any questions, comments, concerns please send an email to: email@example.com.
Thank you for looking over the updated bylaws and addendum! On Thursday, February 1st, the PTA is hosting a call-in vote to pass the updated bylaws and addendum. All paid PTA families are encouraged to call in and cast your vote!
To get the call-in information, please contact Amanda Rudy at firstname.lastname@example.org. In turn, you will receive the call time, phone number, and access code. Thank you for helping us better serve the NES community!
The Bingo Committee would like to thank all of the NES families who supported the evening by attending and/or donating items to be used as prizes. The event was beyond amazing and successful. A special thank you to NES administration for their continued support for PTA sponsored events.
