Dear North Branch Families,
As we wait for spring to warm up, we are also working hard to plan next year. Because she has a wonderful almost 1 year old Harrison to care for, Summer Barnett will not be returning to teach at North Branch next fall. We will all miss her, and send best wishes to the whole family. Currently North Branch has several applicants for the position; we’ll keep you posted.
Donations of wine and craft beer needed by April 30th for Cork Raffle to benefit NBS teachers!
Next Friday, April 27th is the last day to pull your students contract without having to pay in full for tuition. Please see the information below that went home with your re-enrollment packet.
You may withdraw from the contract by Friday, April 27, 2018. You must submit your request for withdrawal in writing or in an email by 4:00 pm on April 27th, and you must receive confirmation from Autum that NBS has received your request. After April 27, you are committing to pay for the service, whether that service is used or not. While the Board reviews and considers thoughtfully any request for release from the contract, typically release is not granted unless the class fills and NBS can no longer offer the service for which parents have contracted. ***If you have placement question, please be in touch with your child’s current teacher.**
Four reasons to donate to the Annual Fund:
- Every day, students and teachers use heat, A/C, electricity, paper towels & toilet paper, and much more, all paid for by the Annual Fund.
- It’s an exciting moment when each class and then whole school reaches 100% participation. (Nursery & Primary Yellow are leading the way with 70% participation!)
- AND, when we reach 100% family participation, North Branch School receives an additional $2,750 in challenge donations, whether your personal gift is big or small.
- One lucky family that donates to the Annual Fund will receive VIP treatment at BandFair XVI when their name is chosen in a random drawing.
There is still time to sign up to either play in or sponsor 25th Annual North Branch Golf Classic on Friday, April 27th, 1PM. Proceeds go towards playground upgrade and needs-based assistance. Email Bonnie (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a registration or sponsor form or find them under the Golf Tournament tab on the school’s website: https://north-branch-school.org/fundraising/north-branch-golf-classic/
Please see Bonnie if you’d like to help represent North Branch School at these events:
Hope’s Legacy Open House on May 6th (Horses and fun!)
Kids & Nature Festival on June 3rd (Nature and fun!)
