“Every child deserves a champion -- an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be."
- Rita Pierson, educator
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!
Dear Students and Families,
We are very excited for our new school year at Nantucket Intermediate School. During this, our third year as a school community, we will continue to define our vision and core values for ensuring the success of all students in grades four, five and beyond.
We welcome several new staff members to NIS this school year along with some new program offerings. Grades four and five will participate in a weekly Spanish class this school year with Senorita Nash; Grade three will have two art classes weekly with Miss Held, a trimester of chorus, and a trimester of digital literacy; Grade four will have weekly digital literacy classes in addition to library with Ms. Myers; Grade five will participate in an introduction to band class in addition to general music with Mr. Sheppard. All of these opportunities will exist within the typical school schedule without interfering with academic instructional time. Further, all students will continue to have art, library, music, physical education, and guidance classes throughout the school year.
Our commitment to educating the whole child continues to exist and be fostered through our comprehensive programming. We also recognize that with you as our committed partners every child will learn, grow and achieve success!
Happy New School Year!
Evemarie McNeil & Donna Johnson
