Rule Reminder: Bring your own water bottle or cup, please! Students, not parents, are responsible for remembering this. A great way to involve the student is to make a gear checklist for the fridge (belt, mouth guard, hand pads, water). Have the student pack their bag in the morning BEFORE school–they can even place it in the car for later!

Weekly Challenge: On Wednesday or Thursday when we don’t have class at NWSMA, practice some things on your own at home. Be sure to ask for permission! Your practice session can last for five minutes, fifteen minutes, or as long as you want!

Weather Cancellation Policy: If school gets cancelled in the Stanwood-Camano school district due to weather, NWSMA classes will also be cancelled. Cancellations will be posted on our Facebook & our Twitter. Not all of our students live in Stanwood-CamanoPlease don’t take risks to get to class if the weather is different where you are.

We welcome feedback on our website and our teaching! Feel free to email us if you have a comment or question.
