Giving Thanks

As we settle in to Thanksgiving recess, we wanted to express gratitude for our wonderful NMNS family!!

Remember, no school Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday this week. We look forward to reuniting next week and sharing stories from our short break.


Pancake Breakfast – Thank you!


A huge thank you to our parent and board volunteers for their hard work in setting up, cooking, and cleaning up after our fun-filled and tasty pancake breakfast Saturday morning.

Thank you also to the Monroe Street Arts Center for the turkey-hat craft project!

And, of course, thanks families! You braved the cold, blustery weather to share in our wonderful event, and we couldn’t have done it without you!

Pancake Breakfast THIS SATURDAY!


The Pancake Breakfast is fast approaching!  Mark your calendars for this Saturday, November 19th, from 9-11:00 in the school gym.  We’ll have delicious pancakes, Gates & Brovi bacon, and an art project for the kids put on by our friends at the Monroe Street Art Center!  Bring your friends and family and help support our school with this great annual fundraiser.  The cost is $6/adult, $5/child and $20/family.

End of a Great Year!


A big THANK YOU to everyone who joined in the picnic festivities on June 8. It was perfect weather (as you can see by the moment captured by Jen Lucas), and the music by The Whiskey Farm band was an excellent addition!

A few reminders as you wrap up the year:

  • Fill out your paperwork for Fall, 2016 for your new and returning children, before the packets disappear under sunscreen tubes for the summer
  • Watch for info about staining the playground fence
  • Review summer schedules, including toddler warm-up sessions, and let April know if you’d like more information on one of the couple spots remaining in the Birch summer sessions
  • Watch for an updated calendar for the 2016-2017 school year and additional information about kick-off events

Have a wonderful summer, and we’ll see you soon!

End of the Year Picnic: June 8

It’s almost that time again… the close of another school year. One of the best parts is the potluck picnic, which is scheduled for TONIGHT – Wednesday, June 8. It’s going to be an especially wonderful time this year – we have live music from Jason and Brett of The Whiskey Farm as entertainment!

Don’t forget to bring plates, utensils, and beverages for your family along with the dish that corresponds to your classroom. We look forward to a warm and sunny evening together to celebrate a great year of nursery school!

Staff Appreciation

We recently highlighted our stellar staff at New Morning Nursery School as part of our Staff Appreciation week. Reading about our teachers’ families, favorite things, and enthusiasm about our school environment is a joyful reminder of why our children love NMNS so much! Thank you to all of our committed staff members for the love you share with our New Morning family. We are so fortunate!
