Dear New North Broward Lower School Families,
Welcome to the Lower School of NBPS! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the supportive community of collaborative thinkers and learners that is the lower school. At NBPS the faculty, staff and administration work in partnership with parents and students to foster the intellectual, social/emotional and civic development of each child in our care. North Broward is a place your family can call home, a place where your child will thrive and grow.
This is such an exciting time for your family! The start of a new school year is always filled with anticipation and eagerness. I’m sure you may feel a little nervous as you begin this new phase of your child’s education, but you will soon feel like you’ve always been a part of our caring and nurturing school community. One of North Broward’s greatest assets is its ability to embrace new families and build new relationships. You will first experience this when your child receives a personal phone call from his or her new homeroom teacher welcoming your child to the class. These calls will be made on Friday August 16, 2019. An NBPS Family Ambassador will also contact you over the summer to assist with any parent or family questions you might have prior to the start of school.
Here are some resources you may need as you prepare for the start of the year:

Returning students and families will join classroom visits from 10:30-11:30 am. The first day of school is Monday August 26.
Mrs. Sarah Evans, our Assistant Principal, and I will also host a new family coffee on Wed. August 28 at 8:15 am in the lower school cafeteria to see how your first two days have gone and to address any questions or concerns you may have at that time.
