It's Staff Appreciation Week, and we want our NBS Staff to know they are STARS! Let's encourage our children to let NBS staff know how much we appreciate them! Contact Christine Lunt (christine@luntfamily.com) or Julie Gallentine (520-840-2546) with any questions.

Thank you for helping to make this a great week!

Our last PTO meeting of the school year will be held on Friday, May 13, at the home of Christine Lunt. A brief meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m., followed by a casual potluck breakfast. We hope to see you there! Please RSVP to Christine (christine@luntfamily.com) by May 10 if you plan to attend. (Note: This breakfast is in place of a Spring Luncheon, so there will NOT be a luncheon on May 19 as originally scheduled.) We hope you will join us in celebrating the school year!

Barrington Speaker Series Survey
 gift

The Barrington Speaker Series has a rich, 10-year history of presenting distinguished speakers and authors in education, parenting and family well-being. This March, the Barrington Speaker Series was fortunate to have author Jessica Lahey visit the Barrington 220 Community to discuss her book “The Gift of Failure: How to Let Go So Your Children Can Succeed”.  We are continuously evaluating what we offer our community, and ask that you take a moment to answer a few short questions.  All feedback is anonymous and will help us identify areas of interest for future speakers.  The survey may be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KF3NN36  Thank you!
