Dear NPS Families and Community Members:
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.
As we return to school we are entering an unprecedented year. Six months ago our students and staff left the classroom where teaching and learning offered students numerous opportunities. Today, we are attempting to provide the best we can via both a Hybrid Model and a Digital Learning Academy Model. Over 300 students in PreK-12+ are undertaking a new way of learning- 100% online. The Hybrid Model offers 2000+ students both on campus and remote days. Never have we attempted such a diverse way of dealing with teaching and learning. Yet, we are determined to continuously improve.
As we work collectively to address our strengths and weaknesses we have prioritized four goals for every administrator, teacher and paraprofessional. They include:
1. Teaching ALL Students;
2. Instructional Technology;
3. Social Emotional Learning; and
4. Cultural Proficiency
As a District we are compelled to provide each and every student our very best. This year more so than other years we have an opportunity to provide our students as a community a life goal that includes - FLEXIBILITY, KINDNESS AND FORGIVENESS. Please join me in doing so.
As always, please utilize our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for information and Let's Talk to communicate your thoughts.
