I still plan to be at NES on Monday, Tuesday, and mornings on Wednesday and NMS/NHS afternoons Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. My room at NES has changed, I am now sharing a room with Mrs. Kathy Vine across from NES guidance. My office is still in the library on the NMS side where I can be central to NMS and NHS for students and teachers to find me before, during, and after school.

Our first Gifted Advisory is September 22nd at NES at 8:30 the NES office conference room.
To access the other scheduled TAG Advisory meetings go to NUCPS website/Instruction/Student Services/Gifted.
Thank you so much for your support of the TAG programs. I am very excited about our continued success in meeting every child as an individual and taking them as far as they can go in their learning.

Looking forward to a great school year!
