We want to thank all of our supporters for an amazing year. Here are a few things you can do over the summer to keep the momentum going strong.

1.  Please continue to attend school board meetings. All meetings start at 7pm and are scheduled for the following dates:

  • June 19=Work Session
  • June 26=Regular Meeting
  • July 17=Combined Meeting

2. Please remove all SaveNASchools yard signs from your lawn for the summer and store them in your garage. We will need them again this fall.

3. Please mark your calendar for Thursday, August 22!  (The date for this event has been changed from August 22nd to August 23rd to avoid a conflict with NA’s district-wide Kindergarten Orientation night.) SaveNASchools will be hosting a pool party at the McCandless Swim Club to kick off the new school year. Details will be announced closer to the date.

Also, as you attend neighborhood gatherings and other events this summer, please keep in mind the following three points with respect to the SaveNASchools platform.

  1. The group was founded on the principal of keeping ALL SEVEN elementary schools open to preserve NA’s successful education model.
  2. The group has promoted (1) operating classes within the district’s class size guidelines and, (2) preserving programs in academics, arts, and athletics.
  3. The group’s vision is to move the district forward with initiatives that will raise revenue and avoid annual tax increases.
