Remind Messaging Service
We will be using the Remind.com messaging service for "just-in-time" text/e-mail messaging notifications:
Time-sensitive reminders such as when students will be arriving back at the school after a competition (a "NPMK 20 minutes away from arrival at the school" text blast is sent) will be sent to those that join the group. It is our ongoing effort to keep communication timely (as much as possible), therefore, I encourage you to click on the above link to sign up for the alerts.
If you prefer not to download the Remind App, you may also join by texting @efe67e to 81010 to receive the alerts as SMS text messages (text messaging rates may apply).
We need help to set up, serve and clean up for our Football Dinner on Friday! We will be serving the band in the band hallway this week. We will provide food for the band after practice before they march to the stadium for the game. Click the link to sign up!
Menu: Hoagies (ham & cheese, turkey & cheese, Italian or cheese) provided by Guiliano's & chips. Students will sign up on a sheet provided to the student leaders on Monday. If your student does not care for the food offered, has dietary restrictions or would prefer, please provide a packed dinner or drop off food for your student by 5pm.
We need help to set up, serve and clean up before the Competition on Saturday. We will be serving the band in the band hallway. We will provide food for the band after practice before they board the buses. Click the link to sign up!
Menu: Cheese steak, barbecue pulled pork - provided by Pigs n Gigs, mac & cheese - provided by Guiliano's. If your student does not care for the food offered, has dietary restrictions or would prefer, please provide a packed dinner or drop off food for your student by 5pm.
Your help is needed to staff the concession stands for our home football games. It's a lot of fun and a great way to get to know other NPMK parents. SignupGenius links have been created for the following events:
Even if you only have an hour or so to give or can't commit to a specific timeslot...every little bit helps so we look forward to seeing you all there! Thanks!
Sewing Help Needed
If you can iron, pin and/or sew, I need your help. Two sets of flags need to be made this year. A total of 36 flags. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and give me your email address so I can add you to the sewing group. Thanks! Katy Joyce
We are excited that the NPMK is competing at King Phillip High School in the Boston area on 10/6/18. The total cost of the trip is $195.00 per child which includes transportation, lodging and food. This does not include spending money for site seeing on Sunday so please plan accordingly. Your child was asked to start planning who they would like to room with. Each room will have 4 children in 2 queen beds. View the room selection SignUp Genius
Payments are due by no later than Sept 24th payable to NPMA. Unfortunately, Knights in Need is not accepted as payment for the trip. We have several fundraising opportunities right now that would give student credit (i.e. Football Mania, Trivia Knight, GL Scrip, Wawa Coupons)
We are staying at Hampton Inn, 277 Boston Post Rd W, Marlborough, MA 017572. This hotel is getting to or is at capacity but there are several hotels within a mile radius if you haven't gotten a room and would like to join us.
Reminder: your child will not be able to leave the group while on this trip. The itinerary will come out in the next few weeks once we can lock down concrete times. Any questions, please see Sean Haddad or Jen Logan.
