The latest announcements from the Principal, PTO, and NPS...

Thank you and enjoy your summer!

Another school year complete….  Thank you to everyone that volunteered, donated, lead a committee, came to a meeting or attended an event.  None of this would be possible without your support and participation!!  Thank you to the Bigelow teachers and staff that spend many hours with our students.  Your dedication is so appreciated.

Congratulations to the 8th graders who are moving on to 9th grade.  A special thank you to Heather Mehra and Leslie Williams for leading the 8th grade activities committee this year.  We would also like to thank Liz Haas and Stacy Schwartz for putting together the post graduation reception and to Sally Brickell and Michelle Gonzalez McEvoy for leading the effort for the 8th grade dance.  Click here to see photos of decorating for the 8th grade dance.

We hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing summer.  And we look forward to seeing you in September.

PTO Survey ~ Deadline to participate Tonight

The deadline for completing the PTO survey is TONIGHT.  Please take a moment to complete it – we would really value your feedback.  This is your chance to help us shape the programs and activities for the PTO next year. 

Thank you for your time.

A Year End Message from Principal Harrison

The following emessage was sent out earlier today by Principal Harrison:

Dear Bigelow Parents and Guardians:

I would like to congratulate all the 8th grade students that are “moving on” from Bigelow today and wish them all my best in 9th grade.  I would also like to thank all the students for their hard work this year.  They have done a wonderful job and should be proud of all their accomplishments and growth over the past months.  And finally, I would like to thank all of you, the parents and guardians of our students, for your support and help in making this year a success.

Dance Chaperones – We are still looking for a few non 8th grade parents / guardians to chaperone the 8th grade dance this evening.  Help make this a special night for our graduating 8th graders.  Please sign up here if you are able to help: 8th Grade Dance Chaperone Sign up

PTO Survey – While we say goodbye to this year, we also look forward to next year.  Please take a few moments and complete the survey the PTO is conducting.  It is a great opportunity to provide feedback to the PTO board on their priorities, services and activities as they start planning for next year.   Your opinions and experiences are very important and will help influence the PTO moving forward.  I hope you will take the time to complete the survey

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing those of you returning to Bigelow in the fall.

Again, congratulations and thank you to all,


Todd Harrison
