Mr. Jay Lewis


We are looking forward to a great year at NMMS! There are several important changes that will be going into effect for the 2017-2018 school year. In an effort to increase the learning opportunities students have in allied arts classes students may be scheduled into multiple allied arts classes and may be scheduled into mixed grade classes. Another change involves learning lab. All students will have learning lab twice per week during the CORE+ time. This will happen on Monday and Friday and will take place with the student's homeroom teacher. 

This year, NMMS will continue to operate on 9-week quarters.  This means students and parents/guardians will be provided four progress reports and four report cards to report academic progress. These reports will be mailed home. If at any time a parent/guardian would like to have information regarding their child's academic progress please feel free to contact the teacher(s) directly. Each quarter the schedule “rotates”, providing students with an opportunity to have their classes at different times of the day. This also provides students with greater access to Allied Arts programming allowing eight Allied Arts classes per year, including two sessions of Physical Education.

 NMMS will continue with block scheduling. Classes are 78 minutes long and operate on a “green day”- “white day” rotation.  Block scheduling provides an opportunity for more in-depth and sustained learning and minimizes the number of transitions that students must make during the school day.  

CORE+ is an opportunity for NMMS to provide students with remediation in math skills and enrichment activities in other academic areas. This year CORE+ will take place on TuesdayWednesday and Thursday (Learning Lab will take place in the CORE+ time slot on Monday and Friday). The CORE+ Planning Team meets regularly to make adjustments and improvements to the operation of CORE+. Over the course of the school year it is likely that changes will be made to CORE+.

We are excited to be welcoming three new staff members to NMMS this year.  Mr. Jason Hill will be teaching grade 6 science. Mr. Scott Maxner will be teaching Technology Education and Mrs. Erin Edwards will be teaching computers.

All of us NMMS are looking forward to a positive and productive school year and are excited to be working with your students.  We are all here to support and achieve the same goal; to help all students achieve their maximum potential.
