Our teachers do so much for our students.  Next week is teacher appreciation week and NPS would like to show our gratitude!  Here’s how you can help:

Monday, May 2nd –Your teacher has helped you “grow” so much this year.   Bring your teacher a flower or plant to thank them.

Tuesday, May 3rd – Show your teacher how “sweet” they are by bringing your teacher their favorite (wrapped) candy.

Thursday, May 5th – Write your teacher a note or draw them a picture, telling them how much you appreciate them.

Friday, May 6th – Give your teacher a “gift” to enjoy over the weekend by bringing in a small gift card (Starbucks, McDonalds, Chick fil-a, Target, etc).

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

In 1989, a Virginia grandmother received the devastating news that her grandson had died of injuries inflicted by his parents.  In an expression of grief and outrage, this grandmother did something that has given us a symbol.  She tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her van as a way to remember “the bruised and battered body of her grandson” and to alert her community to the tragedy of child abuse.

The Blue Ribbon Campaign is a comprehensive community wide effort in Northern Kentucky led by Family Nurturing Center and supported by a range of individuals and community partners.  This campaign not only encourages the region to understand the problems of child abuse, but will also guide efforts in what we can do to help.

NKU's Alpha Psi Lambda

Members from NKU's Alpha Psi Lambda came to work with first and second graders after school.
