    In This Issue 

    • Welcome First day of school Tuesday 26th for Kindergarten. Everyone should have received their bus schedules. Please allow 10 minutes extra window to be at the bus stop. The drivers will do their best to be on time but with new routes and new children joining our community it may take a few days to settle into a repeatable schedule.

    Please call the infinite Campus Help Desk at (847) 842-3580 with any questions.    

    • Buddy Welcome to our new families joining the NBS community. The PTO sponsors a buddy program for new families joining the district to help you settle in and ask questions about the school and area. If you have not signed up yet and would like a buddy please contact Elizabeth Kramer click here
    • Back to school Back to School Night is set over two nights Tuesday August 26th and Wednesday the 27th at 7:00 pm for the majority of parents.  Chinese Immersion kindergarten will meet at 6:30 p.m. on August 26 and report to the gym at 7 p.m. for the welcome message. The extended parents will report on August 27 at 6:30 p.m. and report to the gym at 7 p.m. The staff of NBS will be present and many of the PTO members will be available to help answer questions.
    •  PTO Meeting The PTO is staffed by parent volunteers and there are many interesting opportunities to become involved. We hope you agree that a strong PTO means a more enriched place for our children to learn and grow. There are many activities to jump in and help, fun stuff at school and many tasks that can be done at home! For those that volunteer today thank you so much and hoping we have a few more to swell our team! Please join us for the 1st PTO meeting on Friday September 5th at 9:15am, it would be great to get some new thoughts and ideas for the coming year.
    • Box tops  Box Tops for Education program will be running again at NBS. This is a very easy way for everyone to help raise funds for the school. There is a special offer at Costco for a limited time where instead of 2 Box Tops per item, instead on 7 everyday products they are giving away 8 Box Tops each! So get collecting, the classroom competitions will start soon!
    • Spirit Clothing  Spirit Clothing is a great way to show pride in being a part of NBS while supporting the school. Please take a look at the website at the great range of products: good for children and parents on sale through September 5th. Click here . Paper copies were sent home on Friday last week.
