Good Afternoon Parents and Guardians:
NMS Accountability Committee
Attention all Parents: We are in need of accountability committee members and a president. We need to meet a minimum of four times throughout the school year. We generally meet twice in the fall/early winter and twice in the winter/early spring. Our meetings are at 4:00 pm and we schedule them for a Thursday afternoon. I update the committee members on topics from our building and the district. One topic at the district level will be the district reviewing start and end times for school next year. If you are interested please e-mail me. Our first meeting will be Thursday, September 21st at 4:00 pm in our Library. We are also in need of someone to serve as a building representative for the district accountability committee. If you are interested please let me know.
Picture Day October 2nd
October 2nd is picture day. We will take student pictures during the morning of the 2nd. Picture packets will be distributed to students on September 27th.
8th graders interested in attending LHS for high school:
Littleton High School aims to welcome visiting eighth graders and their parents while minimizing school hours missed for high school visits. Thus, we will once again offer several morning visit dates this fall. Students and parents who wish to explore LHS must register online. Our visits are 8-10:30 am on certain Tuesdays, after which students return to middle school for the majority of their school day.
Our online sign-up form is linked here:
