NYOS is collecting items of immediate need like bottled water, toiletries, diapers and cleaning materials. The supplies will then be donated to evacuees through our local non-profit partners. We are also asking for donations of school supplies. NYOS is partnering with two charter schools in the affected area, Odyssey Academy in Galveston and KIPP Houston. The school supplies will assist their students, staff and families. Supplies will be collected in bins located at the front desks of both the Kramer and Lamar campuses.

Notebooks Please!

Hello Parents,
We had a great first week. It is so nice coming back to so many familiar faces.
At NYOS we end every day in circle and give appreciations. This year we will be extending that idea to gratitude journals. This is an opportunity for your kiddos to bring in those decorated notebooks that have never been on our supply list. If possible, I would like to have them 8/4/17. The only requirement is that they not have a lock and that they are lined. Fee free to just grab a composition book or go all out with a fancy journal. Thank you in advance!

Fine Arts Night

Dear NYOS Parents,


Our Fine Arts Night will be held Thursday, April 20th from 5-7 pm in the Kramer Campus Gym.


The evening will feature a gallery of framed student artwork.  Each student will have a piece in the show.  Framed artworks will be sold for $25 to help raise money for our arts program.  Framed works can be purchased with cash or check.  Checks must be written out to NYOS Charter School.  (If you do not purchase your child’s framed artwork, they will get it back without the frame in the following weeks).  If you cannot make Fine Arts Night but want to purchase your child’s art, you can send cash or check to your homeroom teacher or Mrs. Ellis before the show and the framed artwork will be held for you. 


Fine Arts Night will feature a work from every child created in art class.  The Art Club has also created works for the gallery.

The night will include music performances by orchestra, steel drums and choir. Spanish Class projects will be displayed.

5th grade Student Council will also be running a fun art activity fundraiser.


We are looking forward to the big night- Hope to see you all there!

Field Day

As you have most likely heard, Field Day is next Thursday. We are representing Samoa and the kids are getting into the Polynesian spirit (thanks, Moana!). We will be watching some exerts from a documentary today and we are hoping to have a chance to interview someone who lives in Samoa next week. Polynesia is a fascinating part of the world and I encourage you to do some research with your family. Did you know they were navigating the open ocean over 3,000 years ago?! 
To help with our outfits on Friday we were hoping to have some flower necklaces. You might call them leis, but in Samoan they are called ulas. If you are able to donate leis, please email Ms. Gamble. 

Blue Intent to Return Form

Attention! Intent to Return forms are coming home TODAY! These forms must be returned for your child to keep their spot at NYOS.
