Announcements March 31 - April 4, 2014

Please be aware that videos may not be visible on mobile devices. Please click on the link to access the video.

Each morning as students make their way to classrooms for our 7:30am start of first block, Nipmuc begins its day with daily announcements from "The Voices of Nipmuc." The Voices of Nipmuc are juniors Lindsay Doyle, Autumn Morrice, Elizabeth Nigro, Hollis Ryder, Trenton Ryder, and Eli Tamagni. Without fail, their friendly voices lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag and the sharing of important information about our school.

Beginning this week, the Voices of Nipmuc will expand their audience by sharing their announcements through my blog. Check in each Monday to hear what's new at Nipmuc!
