From Mr. Zaugg: Sixth graders who were in beginning band first trimester. You need to return the school recorders. They are not yours. They are the schools.



Hey middle school students, since we will continue our CDL online it’s important

you stay informed.  Please check your email at the beginning and throughout your school day.

This is how your teacher keeps you informed of possible schedule changes and classwork.

At times it can be overwhelming, but, if you check your email daily you are certain to stay in the loop!


Yearbooks: Submit some pictures please….get creative…perhaps a picture with you and your pet, doing hobbies, or outdoor activities are just  a few ideas.  Email to tamiw@nknsd.org.    

Review a Book and Get a Sand Dollar: Destiny Discover is an amazing resource that shows all of the books available at the library, and is also where you can access our collection of ebooks and audiobooks. One great feature of the website is that you can leave reviews on books to let others know how you feel about it. Right now, there are very few student reviews on the site, and the library staff wants to change that!

Any student that logs into Destiny Discover (destinydiscover.com) and writes a review on a book they enjoyed will receive a Sand Dollar!

To write a review, you just need to login to destinydiscover.com with your school Google account, find a book that you’ve read and enjoyed, and leave a review.

Here is a video of Ms. Harmon explaining how to login to Destiny Discover and how to leave a review:
