Welcome to the Parent Association!
HELLO NDSS FAMILIES!
As parents of NDSS students we know that remaining connected and involved in your student's education becomes more challenging. As an association, we understand each student and family is different and transitions from middle school to high school to college are not always the same.
The NDSS PA works to build a strong partnership between families and the school. With our school’s resources, we strive to keep you informed so you can provide the support needed to help your student, and yourselves, to succeed and grow.
We know there is a need for parents to be involved in their student’s education while giving them enough space to mature as an adult. This is an exciting time for our parents at NDSS as we are ready and willing to be a great resource to assist you and your students in your endeavors.
Research has shown that parental involvement in schools has a significant positive impact on student achievement & attainment. Attend our monthly meetings, lend your ideas and suggestions for discussion, and/or be helping hands during events. Join our efforts to be the bridge between school and home that keeps our students and you, involved and engaged.
President: Rita O’Bryant
Rita O’Bryant, now a Bronx resident, was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Her daughter Latavia is one of our brightest students. Preferred to be called “Ms. Rita,” she is a firm believer that a good and strong education can come from public schools, not just private or charter schools; it takes work which she and all NDSS stakeholders are capable of.
