MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

May 15, 2024


Good morning, Newfound Families.

With the upcoming year, I want to bring your attention to some upcoming events:


Hawaiian Dance

This Friday, the NMMS Student Council will be hosting a Hawaiian Dance from 6-8 p.m. in the NMMS gymnasium.


Yearbook

Our yearbook students have been hard at work putting together a yearbook that is both memorable and cost-effective for parents and guardians. The cost of the yearbook this year is $15 and will be printed locally by Newfound Impressions. We are also using a different binding method that should prevent some of the binding issues we experienced last year.

You can find a yearbook ordering form attached to this email. The deadline is May 22 nd.


A Note from the Nurse

We are noticing an increase in students reporting hunger and requesting snacks throughout the day. We are unable to routinely provide snacks to students outside of cafeteria offerings. Please encourage your student to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch. Students are allowed to have a snack in many classrooms throughout the day.

If your family is experiencing food insecurity or needs assistance with the free and reduced lunch application, please reach out to the nurse at mconverse@sau4.org and/or guidance at kjenkins@sau4.org.


8 th Grade Parent Transition Night

Our 8th graders have spent quite a bit of time preparing for their transition to NRHS. Paula Chausse, Director of School Counseling, is hosting a parent night for our rising 9th-grade students. The parent night will be May 29th from 6:30 to 8:00 at Newfound Regional High School. We will be going over the program of studies, graduation requirements, co-curricular activities, a building tour, and information on Bridge Academy. In addition, there will be ample time for questions and answers.


8th Grade Alternative Activities

Through the efforts of Ms. Ritchie and Mr. Frekot, we have put together an exciting program for students who are not attending the D.C. trip. This includes a hike up to Inspiration Point, attending Scholastic Day at the New Hampshire Fisher Cats Stadium, and the Auschwitz exhibit and lunch at a Jewish deli in Boston. Moreover, thanks to generous donations, we are able to offer this trip for a modest price. For those 8th-grade students, we will be sending home a permission slip in the coming days.


8th Grade Class Night

As a reminder, the 8th grade Class Night will be held on June 17th from 6-8 p.m. in the NRHS Gymnasium. We recommend parents arrive 30 minutes early to ensure parking. After the ceremony, we will also be hosting an ice cream social for the 8th graders with ice cream and toppings generously donated by the Common Man. More information about Class Night will be sent to 8th-grade parents and guardians as we near the event.
