New Thursday Email system online

We recently reported that the venerable system which had been delivering our "Thursday envelope" emails suffered a bit of a meltdown.  Our apologies if you're one of about half of our families who did not receive the original email.  Everyone signed up for that delivery should have received the replacement e-envelope from our new mailer system albeit with an odd subject line including "Math Meeting." 

With these systems pains behind us we should all be able to look forward to more reliable, polished and connected PTA messaging to complement the bulletin boards around campus, www.nsmontessori.org and NSMPTA on Facebook for keeping up with events and volunteer opportunities.
