    "The power of family engagement will change the trajectory of school improvement." -Dr. Steven Constantino

    Everything we do at NPS is focused on our students' success -- emotionally, socially, and academically. Including families and the community in students' education is key to that success.

    What can you do? More on this soon! The MLT is reviewing a staff and families education plan in December. Check back here in early February for more information and resources. 

    In the mean time, here are some links for staff and families (really, all links are for everyone, but the labels help you know the perspective) (click on the blue or purple words to link to resources): 

    For everyone:

    This CDE page on Family-School-Community Partnering (FSCP) is packed with information. It can be overwhelming, but for those who want basics, that information is on this page. For those who want a deep education in FSCP, it's here, too!
