Did you know? This week North Branch School hosted the Nelson County Chamber of Commerce “Business After Hours” event. It was a great way to bring community members to NBS. Arline, the average senior, was the belle of the ball and the perfect example of hands-on learning.
AND we are so excited for Jen and Jacob Tal, who are expecting a new addition to their family and the NBS community in January!!!!!!!
