Teacher Appreciation
Thank you to our amazing parents and PTO for celebrating our staff here at NBS.  We are blessed to have the best parents in the district.  A special thank you to all the parents that helped decorate the doors, donate food and their time to make this week special. An additional thank you to Kelly Niese for the elaborate decorations that gave our school and lounge a true VIP treatment.

PARCC Testing
PARCC testing has been completed for this school year.  The students took seven tests over a period of two weeks and put in a great deal of effort.  They should be commended for how engaged they were throughout the process.  We did everything we could to make this a positive experience for all our students.  The students were provided snacks, encouraged daily, had increased social time during lunch and recess and did not have homework during that time.  Overall, I am very proud of our students and look forward to seeing the testing results.  We do have one more assessment for 5th grade coming soon in Science.  As I receive more information from the district and the state I will let you know.

Summer School
Summer School
The last day for early registration for summer school is Friday, May 6th. Summer learning loss and retention of academic knowledge are real hurdles to gains made during the school year. Whatever your choice, be certain your child has a plan for academic maintenance through the long summer. Barrington 220 summer school is a terrific option with a variety of academic and creative classes still available. To view the summer school brochure, click summer school brochure. To register

Bus Behavior
In recent weeks we have seen an increase in bus referrals. Most of the behaviors are minor such as not staying seated, making loud noises or throwing objects.  Although minor I would rather correct them now so they do not become bigger problems down the road.  We will continue to communicate the importance of being responsible, respectful and safe on the bus using the language in our behavior matrix. I am hoping that you can join with us to speak with your child about finishing the year on a positive note and focusing on expected behavior on the bus.  The behavior matrix can be found on-line and can give you the specific language that we use regularly with our students.  I appreciate your help with this topic.
