Recognition for Outstanding Academics
NMS recognized its' top students for earning the highest averages for marking period 1 in each grade level (6-8).  The awards were announced during the class meetings held in December.  Mr. Ryan presented certificates to the students and emphasized the importance of the character trait, resilience, demonstrated by each of the students.   He also recognized the seventh grade class for their collective achievement; 38% of our seventh grade class earned a 90 or higher overall average during the first marking period.   Another round of recognition will follow after the completion of marking period 2.  (The second marking period ends on Friday. January 31.)

Glitz and Glam at the Annual Semi-Formal
2019 NMS Semiformal
The December Semi-formal was well-attended by students from grades 6-8.  While formal attire was not required, it is always fun to see our middle school boys dressed in shirt and tie, and our lovely young ladies in sparkling dresses.  A special thanks is extended to our student ambassadors who helped organize the event, Rhett Genung who provided DJ services for the evening, and our chaperones who attended the event, provided refreshments, and snapped photos at the "photo booth"!

Reporting an Absence

Teachers take attendance at 7:35 a.m.  Any students not in class at that time are marked with an unexcused absence. To improve communications from school to home, the middle school has a method of communicating daily student attendance to our families.  

An automated phone call is made to all parent-guardians of MS students that have been marked as an unexcused absence from school as of 8:00 am.  The calls ensure that the parent/guardians are aware their child has not made it to school or class.  With any system that relies on human input, there is always a chance for error.  For example, if your child arrives at 7:50 a.m. and the teacher has already taken attendance at 7:35 a.m. Consequently, your child will be reported as an unexcused absence.  In this scenario, you may receive a call unless our competent clerical staff has found the time in the morning rush to enter this “tardy to school” into the attendance system prior to the automated call being sent. We would ask for your understanding as we work to improve our efficiency around this communication tool. We would rather have you receive this notification because of error than not at all.  

To report an absence, we ask you to contact Mrs. Lauren Van Beers, Attendance Secretary, at 607-334-1600 x2002 or  NYS law states that verification of a student absence must be in writing, so please know that you will still receive a call unless a note/email is sent. That note can be sent once your child is healthy enough to return.
