NVMS students will be selling cookie dough cards this year to raise money for ASB. ASB pays for Honor Level Activities (Sportplex, bowling & park), dances and other "extras" during the school year. Cookie dough cards will be $20, you may choose your choice of cookies online, then the dough is delivered to your home! Sales will run from September 22 to October 17th. Students need to treat the cards the same as cash, they are responsible to turn in money equaling the value of the cards taken to sell. Parent permission forms should have been brought home this week. They MUST be signed and returned for students to receive the cookie dough cards to sell. For more information, forms and PRIZE LIST, please go to the "Fundraiser Information" link at the left of this page.

Our district has recently upgraded our technology and storage system to provide more capacity and technology tools for students and staff. To access the technology we will be providing students with a school email account that enables them to log into their file and retrieve documents. Their email account will be set up by our tech director and will be their first name.last email@example.com. This will allow students to use Word, Excel and other updated programs for class assignments. Students will be able to transfer files between home and school, allowing them to change, fix, and create documents at home that they will be able to edit and revise at school. We have gone over our acceptable use guidelines with students. Student email accounts may be used only for school related purposes. If students use email or school account for reasons other than school, or are outside our acceptable use guidelines, their email account will be shutdown. If you have questions about the new email accounts please call the middle school office.
For the past 12 years the Nooksack Valley School District has applied for, and received, a grant to run the after school PACE program and tutorial programs for our students. As we began the application process this past summer, it became very clear the goals and objectives of the grant had changed, and we no longer qualified for the after school PACE grant. This grant provided our district over $200,000 to transport, staff, and administer our after school tutorial programs. As a school and a district we are looking for ways to apply for the grant in future years so that we can resume after school programs to the level which their have been in the past. We are also currently looking for ways to provide after school programs for those students who need extra support beyond the school day. We should have a plan in place in the next couple of weeks.
