Design and Flight: Aerospace Experience
Students in 5th grade have been engaged in a series of science, technology, enginereing and mathematic (STEM) lessons connected to the field of Aerospace. Through hands-on projects that incorporated collaboration with peers and the construction of rockets and wing design, students were assessed on their creative construction of an efficient rocket, succes of their rocket launch without fail and most importantly their ability to collaborate and work as a team. The end of the unit was complimented with an engaging opportunity to meet A-10 pilot Major Greg Krino. Major Krino knew he wanted to be a pilot when he was in 2nd grade after watching Star Wars. With the dream of being the next Luke Skywalker, Major Krino attended the Airforce Academy where he learned about flying. His story inspired our students to pursue their dream through their education, choosing the right friends who will be supportive, be a good person in the community and an athlete which promotes their health and happiness.

General Board Meeting Overview
Board meetings are where elected officials conduct the business of the school district. Agendas for regular meetings of the NMUSD typically consist of a closed session and an open session.
Closed session agenda items are confidential and cannot be shared with the public. If the board agenda contains a closed session, the topics will be routinely related to confidential employee or student issues and/or pending litigation. The Board may also discuss various negotiations with its chief negotiator in a closed session.
Open session items are non-confidential agenda items in which the board conducts its business in view of the public. Open session agenda items are divided into the following sections:
