What a great celebration day was had by so many. If you as an NVNS family were not able to attend, please consider other ways to celebrate with us the remaining of the year! Our concert with the Banana Slugs String Band was an amazing fun event! It was the first time in my 30 years with nursery school to have a big event with/for families and children! Such fitting fun for our school. Our beautiful, fun location at an alumni families ‘Shop’ was filled with music, laughter, climbing, playing, singing, and amazing donations of food for all to share. It was also filled with so many past board members and many young adult alumni! Our motto, Together We’re Better, shined as everyone pitched in to support our play day. Many teenage alumni painted faces, helped with jumpy houses, hay bale play, dancing and food. This year’s celebration committee group and current families also spent many joyful hours preparing. Thank you all for the true school spirit! This year’s class of children were very excited to deliver 7 wagons full of your food donations to our neighbors at our annual Salvation Army kitchen tour. I was so proud. Our tile legacy ‘Together Wall’ officially began at the celebration. If you were not able to participate at the celebration, you may still purchase a tile to be placed as your families thumbprint on our wall. Dive into Color ceramic studio continues to support our school throughout this year! Contact NVNS to purchase a tile voucher or you may purchase one at Dive into Color (1757 Tanen Street, Napa). You may paint in the studio any day, or you may choose to purchase and attend during the week that I will be in the studio, Feb. 29-March 4th. Hope to see you there! NVNS has so many reasons to be thankful! As you celebrate with your families for Thanksgiving this week, some stories may include school memories. Please share our Market Place magazine article and our Give!Guide info with extended families. One lovely alumni family told me they were trying to think of new ways to give during this year’s holidays. We are included with many other wonderful Napa nonprofit organizations in the guide. Take a look- www.napavalleygiveguide.org. The November issue of Market Place can be found at www.napavalleymarketplace.com.
Current NVNS families, this is also a great extended family time to sell our Instant Wine Cellar raffle tickets schedule for our February raffle! Filled with love, appreciation and pride of our NVNS motto: Together We’re Better!
