Hi NSMS families!

I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone that took part in our cookie dough fundraiser! We raised almost $1900 to be used towards student activities and supplies! Details regarding a pickup date and time will be released soon!
A huge success and to do that during a pandemic is even more awesome! Something positive to look forward to! Happy baking!
