Hello Middle and Upper School Superstars,

We will have an action-packed assembly tomorrow at the usual time in the usual place with the usual expectations.

See you there, on-time, sans backpacks and devices!


MUN Room Clean-Out

Hello All,

D248, otherwise known as the “MUN Room” will begin a repurposing on Friday, March 24th. The Maths teacher and MUN supervisors have done a great job removing relevant materials, now it’s your turn. Please consider this a “last call” for any and all materials in this space. Highlights include notepads, water bottles, and a mountain of shredded paper!



Ready, Set, Cook! Today!

Hello Grade 6/7 Students,

It’s back for another season at NIS…!

Today, Block 5, In the PAC three House teams from Grades 6 & 7 will battle in a cook-off hosted by a celebrity chef! How awesome is that!

What 6th and 7th Graders need to do today:

-Eat lunch early. You can enter the cafeteria at 12:45pm!

-Leave your bag in your locker. For reals.

-Go potty.

-Be seated in the PAC at 1:2opm ready to have a blast!

See you there!


Grade 6 Grounded

The Privilege: Grade 6 gets to use the Upstairs of our lovely cafeteria…

The Responsibility: To use this space, all students need to clean-up after themselves, respect the furniture, and generally act in a caring, principled way.

The Issue: This is not happening with many of our Grade 6 students…

The Consequence: Grade 6 are NOT allowed in the upstairs of our lovely Cafeteria for the rest of the month.

The Hope: These extra few weeks of brain development will lead to increased maturity and responsibility!

The Complaints:  See Mr. Bratton
