SUBJECT: November 4th

Get into the Nixon Spirit!

Some students may be feeling a little disconnected from their school without events, assemblies and times where everyone can gather together. 

Let's help connect students to school through School Spirit! Volunteer for the Spirit Committee, purchase Nixon Gear or help to organize a virtual event after school hours. 

PTO Meeting Tonight!

All are welcome to join as we talk about upcoming events, appreciation initiatives and school spirit!

6:30 PM

Got Snow?

We've got the perfect Snow Gear Bag! Made from durable, 50% recycled material, zip top closure, over-the-shoulder length handles and big enough for all your winter wear.

The school asks that your student bring snow gear in a separate bag. Teachers love the zip-top closure and the name label!

It's snowing, ORDER TODAY!

We have new Tee Shirts!

Join in on the school spirit with our new tee shirt design.


How your donations are used...

The PTO uses your donations to support Educational Enrichment programs for each grade. 25,000 dollars is budgeted each year to pay for amazing programs for your student. Next week the fifth grade will engage in a live program from the McAuliffe Center for Integrated Science Learning on Astronomy! 

Thank you for enabling the PTO to provide these wonderful programs!

Spirit Day: Cooperation - November 9th

Spirit Days are scheduled throughout the school year and each one highlights one of the school's Core Values:


Aim High

Respect & Kindness



The PTO is donating fun spirit materials for each spirit day to help your student get into the Nixon Spirit! Get your owl eye mask ready for our first Core Value Spirit Day of the year on Monday, November 9th! Wear your eye mask and Nixon Gear!
