*Thank you to Susan Beck for coordinating this year’s Family Bingo Night!  It was great to have so many families join the fun!

*Due to the Early Dismissal this past Tuesday, our PTO meeting was rescheduled to next Tuesday, January 23rd at 7:00pm. We hope you can join us!

*Mix It Up Lunch is returning to Nitrauer next Friday, January 26thStudents consistently identify the cafeteria as a place in their school where divisions are clearly – and sometimes harshly – drawn.  So, periodically we ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch.  Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice.  When students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misconceptions can fall away.  During Mix It Up Lunch, parent volunteers help hand out popsicle sticks to mix students up with their seating and help students interact while they eat their lunch.  If you would like to volunteer for this event please sign up atMix It Up Lunch Sign Up.  Volunteers are particularly needed from 10:45-11:50 am.  If you have any questions please contact Maggie Foley at

*Book Nook donations are always welcomed!  Our highest need continues to be chapter books.  Book contributions can be dropped off in the book box located in the school office.  The next Book Nook will be February 7th.  See 2017-18 Book Nook for more information regarding the Book Nook.

*Remember, school will now be in session on Monday, February, 19th (due to the January 5th snow day).  Additionally, the snow make-up date for our school closing this past Wednesday, January 17th will be Tuesday, April 3rd.
