Upcoming Events

Veteran’s Day

Veteran’s Day is Monday, November 11. This is a special day to honor those who have served in the armed forces during times of war. It is also a good time to discuss with your child the value of service to others and making sacrifices for the betterment of all. The NTA Way core values of courage, commitment, awareness and integrity can be a useful starting point in these discussions. 

Through the week, the names of veterans from NTA families will be displayed. If you have not added your veteran this display, stop by the main office this week.
