We are excited for improvements being made at Niota. Our carpeted rooms are getting brand new flooring and look amazing, and our bleachers are getting much needed repair. Due to bleacher repairs, our gym will be closed the remainder of this week. Basketball training and open gym are cancelled until repairs are completed. No basketball training or open gym the week of June 20-24.

Dear Families, we are working to improve our school by removing carpet and replacing it with beautiful new tile. This process does have a smell due to the adhesive they have to use. It is non-toxic. We have made arrangements to minimize any future exposure of our kids to the unpleasant smell.
