Included below are some updates that went out in today’s AlertNow message.
On Wednesday (11/16) and Thursday (11/17) of this week we will hold parent/teacher conferences. Wednesday’s conferences will run from 12pm – 2pm and Thursday’s conferences will run from 6pm – 8pm. Please note that you do not need to set individual appointments to meet with teachers on those days. Teachers are available in their classrooms during each of the two-hour sessions. We look forward to seeing you on those days.
Author in Residence:
If you are attending conferences on Thursday evening, feel free to stop by the main lobby to visit with junior Christopher Leduc. Christopher recently published his first novel, The Orb. He will be displaying his book during conferences and will be available to discuss the process of writing the novel. The Orb can be purchased on the days of conferences or by checking www.TheAireaidLord.com.

This year's F.A.S.T - which is run by Nipmuc's Student Council - will be the culminating event of the "Nipmuc Celebration of Giving." As part of the Celebration of Giving, the students have organized a number of community service events to be run by each class which will take place throughout the month of November.
Canned Food Drive: November 19, 2011
As part of the “Nipmuc Celebration of Giving” the school is holding a canned food drive on Saturday, November 19 at Nipmuc. The event will take place from 10am to 2pm in the courtyard behind the school. It will include fun-filled family activities, music, food, and more. Nipmuc will accept any type of nonperishable food donations. The students will be taking all the cans received to the Milford Food Pantry.
