Imagine for a minute 3,400 plus students and 500 staff members all sitting on the floors of their respective schools for over an hour.  Our required tornado drills usually last about 5 minutes and then its back to the normal business of the day.  Yesterday was not a "drill."  The sirens blared the warning, TV and radio stations urged the community to take cover, and when the winds came we knew that things could get worse in a matter of minutes.

It would be natural to think that learning stopped for the duration of the warning and that all other support services shut down as well.  Immediately after the warning was lifted I headed to the monthly senior citizen luncheon.  Over 40 people were just finishing up the pre-meal prayer with a word of thanks for keeping everyone safe.  On a normal day, student volunteers from the h

NVPS - Superintendent’s Comments

“We believe people working together toward common goals can accomplish anything.”

Over the past year there have been many examples of this belief in action thanks to the partnership between staff, families, students, and community members. Sometimes it appeared in a school between an adult and a student because of a district-wide mentor program started by a concerned adult. Other times it was a community-wide event like Black Out Pediatric Cancer that involved hundreds of people thanks to a concerned parent/ community member. This belief came to life when you as a community approved the renewal of the building and site millage in May 2010.
