***Core & Encore Team Updates *********************************************************************


Team Lafayette (6th) (Twitter @NMSLafayette Team Leader Mrs. Hackman)   See our welcome letter on the NMS Website!   Congratulations to our Pride of the Lions winners for the month: Caleb Hutchinson, Naomi Pomales, and Samuel Williams.  Charging laptops has improved dramatically!  We have implemented a charging policy for the kids, and they have responded well.  We have also updated our grading policy for the second quarter.  This change was discussed in September at Open House regarding any late work.  Please review information in the Course Headquarters in Schoology for the update, and discuss with your student.  There has been a change to the school schedule for 11/22 and 11/23, please be aware of the students’ half-days being turned to days at home.  Have a great week!


Team Lehigh (6th) (Twitter @NMSTeamLehigh/ Facebook @NitschmannTeamLehigh Team Leader Mrs. Oliver) See our welcome letter on the NMS Website!   We are proud to announce our October Pride of the Lions: Aziel Capeles-Reyes and Alexis Flores. Congratulations to both of them. Way to Lead the Way. As we enter the 2nd marking period we asked students to reflect on how the 1st marking period went. One of the most common lessons learned from the 1st marking period was to not fall behind as it is difficult to catch back up and stay on top of the daily assignments at the same time.  If you have not done so already, establish a routine of checking your schoology grade report several times per week and most importantly set up a regular schedule of homework time (about a half hour to and hour a night).  If working from home is a problem you can reach out to us to stay after or before school or the school offers a supervised work environment in the Library from 7:30 to 8:00 am and from 3:05 to 4:00 pm in the library every school day.  There is help here for you – take advantage of it!!


Team Moravian (6th) – (Twitter @NMSTeam Moravian/Facebook@NMSTeamMoravian Team Leader Mrs. RoufakisSee our welcome letter on the NMS Website!  Start of the second quarter!
