NYOS Charter School

Elementary Principal's Corner

January 2018


Dear NYOS Community,


Happy 2018! It’s hard to believe half the school year is over…I guess it’s true what they say about time flying when you’re having fun!


This quarter is very busy and we hope you’ll plan to attend several events coming up soon. On Tuesday, January 23rd the NYOS PTA meeting will be held in the Kramer gymnasium beginning at 6:00 PM. The PTA is providing pizza and drinks for your dining pleasure and families are invited to bring salads and desserts to share. Click here to sign up. There are also spots available to sign up to donate replacement playground equipment and school supplies if you are able. At NYOS we believe healthy habits and physical activity promotes strong academic performance so our students enjoy two recess periods each day. With all that fun, our playground equipment tends to need replacing from time to time. We appreciate your help with this donation drive!




Mark your calendar for the annual elementary STEM Fair scheduled for February 1st at the Kramer gymnasium from 6-7 PM. There will be student and classroom projects, interactive activities from each grade level, Mad Science of Austin, our NYOS IT Department, and many more! We hope you’ll plan to attend!


Thanks for all you do in support of our school. Our team works hard each and every day to ensure your child has the best educational experience we can provide. As one of our Kindergarten students expressed so well in his New Year’s Resolution- We always try our best!



I look forward to seeing you soon!
