NIGUEL HILLS MIDDLE SCHOOL

Back to School Night

Thursday, August 30, 2018

6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

(zero period PE begins at 6:15 p.m.)

 

 

 

Dear Parents,

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend Niguel Hills Middle School’s Back to School Night. We are excited about sharing our middle school program with you. Back to School night is a special night exclusively for parents or guardians of students enrolled in our school.  Each student has been encouraged to write his/her schedule of classes in the space provided on the reverse side of this letter with the school map.  Since this is an evening for parents, we ask that students not attend.  

 

This evening is designed to provide you with an opportunity to visit your child’s classes and meet his or her teachers. During the fifteen minutes in each class, the teachers will explain their instructional programs, discuss learning objectives and display instructional materials and textbooks. Although there is no time for individual conferences, appointments can be made with teachers if there is a need to do so. 

 

Please join the Niguel Hills staff for this very special event!  Teachers are eager to meet you and describe their academic programs and plans for the year. Everyone here at NHMS is committed to ensuring that your child experiences a successful and motivating year of growth.  Back-to-School Night is an important part of our partnership and encourages excellence for each and every student!  You will be following your child’s schedule so that you can meet with all teachers.

 

Additional parking is available on the blacktop behind Niguel Hills.  Please help us by arriving in a carpool with another family if possible. We recommend bringing a flashlight as it will be dark before the end of the program.   

 

All PE classes will meet in the Blue Commons.

 

Friday, August 31, 2018 is a minimum day with dismissal at 12:40 p.m.

 

Best Wishes for a wonderful evening,

Tim Reece, Principal

Sometimes, all you need is small change to make a great impact.

This is what the Niguel Hills Middle School Student PTSA set out to do when they organized a coin drive in March 2018.  They wanted to raise money to purchase goats for impoverished families in a developing country. 

 

“Did you know that all it takes is $50 to buy a goat?” asked Student PTSA President, Max Segal.  “That one goat can provide milk, food, and income to an impoverished family.  As a school, we can make a lasting impact just by collecting pocket change.”

 

 “Let’s call it GoatFundMe!” said Lucy Himmelberg, Financial Secretary, when they were discussing the possibility of getting online donations. 

 

“Let’s ‘milk’ this!” said Winter Bevan, Outreach Officer, as they brainstormed on how to best get donations.

 

The lighthearted student committee actually has serious focus.  Student PTSA is sponsored by the Parent Student Teacher Association (PTSA) and fairly unique to Niguel Hills Middle School. 

 

It is held outside of school hours, operated by ten middle schoolers, and overseen by parent volunteers. The group organizes local and global charitable work.  They host general meetings and obtain speakers who are dedicated to inspiring others.

 

Student PTSA partnered with WE, an international organization which helps youth take the focus off of “me” and into “we” by helping them perform charitable acts that create a lasting impact on other people.  WE inspired them to run the coin drive for goats.

 

The goat fundraiser was led by 6th Grader, Micah Allen.  For donors who gave $50 or more, he and his mom, Nikki Allen, designed a hat and sticker as tokens of thanks.  They called it the “Greatest Of All Time (G.O.A.T.) Supporter Pack.”  Micah and Peyton Dopf, Student PTSA Vice-President, painted lawn signs with a goat logo and posted them around the school.

 

Niguel Hills Middle School responded with fervor.  For three weeks, coins, bills, checks, and the occasional Chuck E. Cheese token poured in.  The students received support from teacher, Mrs. Gwynne Steidle, who made morning announcements and incited competition amongst classes. The biggest donor ended up being Laguna Niguel Foursquare Church, which donated $200 based on the lawn signs and a marquee message they saw at the school.  In total, Student PTSA raised $3,077.07. 

 

“That can buy 61 goats!” Max said.  “Those are 61 families, perhaps a whole village, which can receive a lasting impact.”

Student PTSA is currently working with WE to identify which country has the greatest need.  In the meantime, WE have recognized Student PTSA’s enthusiasm for altruism and designated them as WE Champions.  On April 18, four student representatives -- Micah Allen, Zoe Neeve, Max Segal and Alex Segal--were honored with dinner and an evening of inspiration held at the Forum Club in Inglewood.  They were able to share their accomplishments with a small group of other WE Champions within California.

 

Because of their philanthropic work throughout the year, Niguel Hills Middle School was also able to secure 25 tickets for WE Day.

 

WE Day brings world-renowned speakers and A-list performers in concert for tens of thousands of young people as a reward for their acts of goodwill.  This year’s WE Day California was held at The Forum on April 19 and featured celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Dierks Bentley, the Chainsmokers, Selena Gomez, Will Ferrell, Jordan Fisher, Morgan Freeman, and John Stamos.  Student PTSA raffled off tickets to other Niguel Hills Middle School students who gave service hours throughout the year.  They were even able to share school bus transportation with Dana Hills High School, who had a small group participate in the WE program.

 

During the WE Day concert, scheduled to air nationally on ABC on August 17, 2018, Niguel Hills Middle School students proudly waved their goat signs.  They cheered, danced, and looked as if they were having the Greatest Of All Time.

Remember to pay at the line marked "NHMS Choir." Skate to make our choir great!

 

6.  NIGUEL HILLS MESSAGE BOARD &

CLASSROOM  INTERRUPTIONS

Throughout the course of the school year, there has been an increase of items being dropped off at the school office for students. In the past, we have assisted by delivering call slips to the classroom informing students of these items. This has caused two issues: an inappropriate amount of classroom disruptions, and a deficit of personnel to handle the amount of requests along with our regular duties. In order to eliminate these classroom interruptions, call slips will no longer be delivered to students informing them of these dropped off items (forgotten homework, forgotten PE clothes, forgotten instruments, forgotten lunches, birthday balloons, birthday cupcakes, birthday flowers, etc). In its place, written notification of items dropped off will continue to be posted on the Message Board at the Attendance Window. Students must check the Message Board during break, lunch-time or after school for items that may have been dropped off for them by parents. Please make sure you share this information with your child.

 

Birthday balloons have been a distraction to instruction in the classroom as well.  Therefore, birthday balloons will now be held in the school office until the end of the school day.

 

Finally, curbside drop off  is not allowed. Parents may not drive up to the school curb and expect their student to meet them for an item drop off. This is a safety issue. All items being delivered on campus must be monitored by the school office staff.  Students may not order food or drink via phone call, text or app (Grubhub, UberEats, Doordash) for delivery to school on their behalf. Items ordered by a student and delivered to the school office will not be accepted.

 

Thank-you for your assistance as we work towards eliminating unnecessary classroom disruptions and continue making the safety of all of our NHMS students a priority.

 

7. Yearbook.

No yearbooks were sold during registration.

You must purchase your yearbook online.

www.jostens.com


We have a few left available online.

 

8. Video Announcements.


 

 

Please turn on your TV's for video announcements.

 

Have a great Day!!!
