May is Teacher Appreciation Month!

Teacher Appreciation Month is under way at NGES and NSS! We are raising money for small gift cards for every teacher, with leftover funds going to an end-of-year celebration for teachers and staff.

While we have already treated our teachers and staff to ice cream trucks to kick off Teacher Appreciation Month, we wanted to do something extra special this year by raising some additional money to provide each teacher with a small gift card to a local restaurant. If we raise enough funds, we’d also like to add an end of year celebration for the teachers to thank them one more time for the huge difference they made for our children this year. If you are able to support us, we’re hoping each family can contribute at least $5 per child.

Thank you so much for your contributions!

Book Fair


The Scholastic IN PERSON Book Fair is coming at NGES and NSS from 12/1 through 12/14! Check out the links below for each school schedule.

Stock up for holiday gifts while supporting our schools! Shop for your teacher’s classroom library and have your students deliver to their classrooms with a DIY note.

Support our schools by shopping The Scholastic Store Online for an expanded selection of exclusives, new releases, value packs, and more. All orders ship home and book-only orders over $25 ship free. Every purchase benefits our school and helps develop a love of reading.

Dance Fit

The Dance Fit Fundraiser is coming to North Grafton! Sadly, we were not able to have Fun Fair in May, and likely won’t be able to again this year, and so we need to do the best we can with this program. This will likely be our only major fundraiser this year, so we could use your help to raise money for our schools, teacher resources, and school supplies! Kids will dance at home or at school for up to 35 minutes to raise money for NGES and NSS. We know times are hard, and we thank you so much for your support — kids can participate in many ways whether they get donations or not! Sign them up today at!

Don’t forget to share your child’s Student Star Video with family and friends on social media!

Fitness rewards (prizes!) will be earned as usual, but mailed straight to your student’s home at the end of the program this year!
