The 2010-11 school year begins Wednesday, September 8. New and returning students will register for classes during the first week of school. Nova’s fall course catalog will be available online after September 7 at  www.tinysis.org
New student/family orientations will be scheduled for mid-September. Details will be included in the student/family information packets to be mailed out in late August.  We look forward to sharing the year with you!

Building Improvements:
This summer, Nova will see building improvements including seismic upgrades, a new roof and improved accessibility for people with disabilities.  To learn more about this and other projects funded through the Building Technology and Academics II (BTA II) Levy, visit www.bta.seattleschools.org

Nova High School’s Spring Gala Event…. Saturday, April 10th, 2010 at 5:30 PM March 21, 2010

Last Saturday evening was a beautiful night in Seattle, today’s rain made this evening more so.  Saturday, April 10th, 2010 Nova High’s single, large fundraiser for the year takes place, making it a great evening, too.  

You’ve had it on your calendar since last September but now it is time to send in your attendance cards!  Mark your entrée selection, sponsor a table, request to be seated with friends but no matter what plan to ATTEND!  We need all members of our community to attend whether you can give this year or not. The meal price is a suggested donation, please send an additional ticket donation if you can.  This keeps an important tradition alive at Nova.  So put a stamp on the response envelope and prepare for a great night out!

 Nova’s operating budget has been cut by 10.45% for next year.  Like all Seattle Public Schools, Nova has faced deep cuts this year.  This year’s budget committee has put all available funding into keeping all our classroom teachers.  This has stripped away almost all other supplies and support for our students.  The educational experience at Nova will depend heavily on what is raised April 10th and your participation is key. 

One parent has put a table together for parents at Nova whose kids went to AS#1!  Are there other groups who could do the same?  Do you know an alumni who would like to visit with teachers?  Grandparents, aunts and uncles, in-laws, friends who love your student, they make great guests.  Does someone you work with support your student?  Come up with creative ways to connect people to the Nova Community.  Maybe invite a few Miller Community Neighbors?  Count on a special night mingling with staff, alumni and other families. 

Terrific donations are rolling in.  Have you had a chance to procure an aution item on behalf of your student? Thanks everyone for coming out, making this a fun night for a great cause. 

 If you need an  invitation  sent to a relative, friend or coworker, please email TheNovaProjectPTSA@gmail.com with name(s) and address(es).

You can also leave your name and number with the school office, 206.252.3500.

In the tradition of cooperation, community spirit and thrift come the Nova Wish Lists. Check back often to learn how you can support Nova.  Maybe a “Craigs List” for teachers and staff to preview potential donations from families won’t be far behind.
