Mrs. Colleen Carr - Golden Apple Award Winner


Today, January 6th, Collen Carr, Kindergarten Teacher at NSES, received the Golden Apple Award from the Commissioner of Education, Dr. Ken Wagner, and Channel 10’s, Patrice Wood. Colleen’s family, colleagues, District Administrators, and Superintendent Lindberg were part of the presentation. This was all kept secret for a few months.

Colleen was nominated for this award by a parent, Kim Rawson, whose child was in Colleen’s kindergarten classroom last year.

I am sure you’ll join me in congratulating Colleen on this honor!! It is so richly deserved!   

The broadcast of the Golden Apple presentation will be on Channel 10 News on Thursday, January 7th.  I sincerely hope you all take the time to tune into Channel 10 at 6:00 p.m. to see one of our [many] fine teachers receive this prestigious award.

Again, congratulations Colleen!  Our school community is so proud of you!  



Our days and lives seem to go by so fast and are so busy that the time to pause and say "thanks" to the people around us - in our lives - in our places of work - seems to take a backseat more often than not.
On behalf of the entire school district and School Committee, we wish you and your family a most enjoyable and restful holiday season.  We are truly blessed with wonderful students, parents, and dedicated and hard-working teachers, support staff, and administrators.  Enjoy!

School Delay/Cancellation
The Department of Education has changed the regulations allowing districts to delay school openings on inclement weather days up to two (2) hours.  While no one can ever predict how long of a delay might be necessary, we will do our best to keep delays to no more than 90 minutes if at all possible.  Click here for school delay/cancellation information.
