We hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far! And though the first day of school is 66 days away, we know some of you like to get started shopping early. School supply lists have been posted! (Don't worry we'll post a reminder closer to school.) Have a happy and safe 4th of July!

At tomorrow evening's final PTA meeting of the year, PTA members will be voting to approve the new board. We have many board members continuing in their current position as well as several board members moving to a new position but staying on the board.

We want to say a big thank you to some board members who will be moving on from the board (but will still be active in our PTA! You can never escape! 😉 )

Michelle Vitale Johnson & Jen Chalmers Kitchen, thank you for your work as county council reps. Jen has been a board member since 2013! We appreciate the many roles you both have served in during the past few years.

Meredith Crow & Trish Lopacienski have worked hard to compile members' info and put out an accessible, easy to read directory - thank you! We know it's a big undertaking each year. Many families benefit from all of your efforts.

You can finally start making eye contact again with Katie Coleman Malone who has been our volunteer coordinator for the past 3 years. Now to find other things to talk to parents about other than what PTA job she thinks you'd be perfect for!

Thank you to Christina Jacobs for all of your hard work on teacher appreciation! You put so much energy into anything you do -- thank you! You and Kelly made our staff feel very, very appreciated this year.

Stacy Nelson Wright has put together so many fun filled family activity nights. Her creativity and organization combined with her enthusiasm is hard to match. Stacy, thank you for many (many!) fun evenings that brought us together as a school community!

Laurie Hiller Smarick has worked on fundraising and served as secretary, and will be bringing her great skills to NMMS PTA. She and outgoing president Heather Marie Considine were the ambitious developers of the huge undertaking that is Springfest. We all thought it sounded a little crazy when they 1st mentioned it 3 1/2 years ago. They carried out their vision beautifully, and now Springfest is the Signature event for our PTA. Thank you for your leadership and pulling all of us along to make that great event happen. As president, Heather has also really made appreciating our staff and creating a sense of community a priority!

Thank you for being willing to add one more thing onto your plates, and sharing your skills with the families of NMES! You'll be missed on the board!

We hope to see many of our members at tomorrow's meeting!

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, supporters, and basket buyers, we were able to raise several thousands of dollars from our silent auction at this year's SpringFest! We still have some great businesses we would like to thank so Sponsor Sunday is back for another couple weeks!

A special thanks to a long-time supporter and Arctic Wolf sponsor, Mt. Airy Liquors! Mt Airy Liquors is Mt. Airy's premier wine & spirit shop featuring monthly sales and discount days.

We would also like to thank several supporters for donating some great summer camps for kids. These included Adventure Park USA, Engineering For Kids, New Spire Arts, & SpiderSmart Learning Center of Frederick! Please check these amazing places out for some great summer programs this year.
