Part of our district's Return to Learn plan was creating a Community Resource Document for families and staff in need of assistance. This document can be found by: 1. Going to the school website 2. Clicking 'Menu' 3. Selecting the drop-down menu for whatever school you're associated with 4. Clicking on 'Community Resources' We hope this document points families in the right direction for receiving the assistance they need during this unprecedented time! Families can reach out to the school counselor in their respective building with any concerns.

HS Students- We have a great opportunity for you to represent the student body at the school board. Attached is the application and a printed copy is available in the office. Note, this is due September 15th. It is a great opportunity to have your voice heard. See Mr. Manson with any questions.
Students in Mr Rude’s social studies classes started their journey in oratory this week. They are learning about the Podium Points and the Rhetorical Triangle as they participate in the Fords Theater National Oratory Fellowship that Mr. Rude has been a involved with for the past three years. The students made three sentence speeches, and then crafted them into short arguments for topics of their choosing. Topics ranged from lunch food, dogs vs. cats, and everything in between.
Homecoming is next week! Here are the order forms for t-shirts. Note the quick turn around so we have them for the game. Checks payable to New Hampton Schools.

Dear NH Elementary Family, This has been a fabulous week here at school! So amazing to see the kids again! I know it was a great first week for our students, teachers and staff too. Teachers spent time building community in each classroom, procedures and processes were practiced and in place (and practiced again!). The kids seem to pick up on everything just like they never missed a beat. Thank you to members of our Health and Safety Team and Elementary Return to Learn plan committee for having most details ready for us to go. Thank you to all of the moms/dads/guardians for all your support in coming back this week; we couldn’t do these things for our students without your aid and flexibility! Just a few of the comments I’ve heard from teachers and staff this week: – “This week far exceeded my expectations. I love it here!” – “These are amazing students. What a blessing they are!” – “I’m having so much fun with my students. They are hard working and awesome!” – “The upbeat energy and positive vibe in the school is great!” – “Today was such a wonderful day!” (This was said every day!) You can be confident that your children are in the best and safest of care. Have a wonderful weekend and good luck to our HS football team tonight and a nice win to our VB team last night. Looking forward to celebrating senior parent night with my youngest son as he approaches his last year of high school, time flies by that is for sure. Yours truly, Mrs. Lansing - Elementary Principal
MS/HS Pick-up I wanted to send a reminder as we have had cars backing up traffic or even stopping on the road. Please do not do this as this causes an issue for all involved. Students not riding the bus will not be released from school until the buses have left campus. Our goal is to have buses departing for the elementary playground around 3:15. Please do not arrive any earlier than this, if you do come early do not enter the loading zone, please use ASH Drive across from the school and wait to drive through to pick your student up after buses have departed. Thank you for helping with this issue and keeping everyone safe!
Getting ready for Senior recognition tonight! Great job kids!
