Students are working on their resumes and future goals.  Students need to list previous employment, achievements, and references on their  resumes.

Please discuss your student’s future goals with them. The office needs to record how they plan to continue their education next year. Even if they plan to home school or attend a private school, this information is required by the state.

Graduate Photographs

Life Touch Photography will photograph the graduates on March 21, 2018. The students will receive a certificate folder which includes their formal picture and diploma. No cost involved. Parents may purchase pictures, but there is no obligation.  School colors are royal blue and silver.

Nottawa News – June 2017

Seriously, how can it be the end of school! Wasn’t it just September? What a great year we have had here at Nottawa School! We are so looking forward to the graduation of our 8th grade students!


Thankfully, my health has turned the corner and I am able to be back at school! I missed our students, staff and all of our families and I am so happy to be back! I will be continuing my chemo treatments and then radiation until the end of August. Then I hope that I will be cancer free.

Next Year

Next year you will see a new principal in the office. We have begun the interview process and will be recommending out top candidate to the Board of Education.

Good news!  I will be staying on as the Superintendent so I am not going away! My role will be to help the new principal make a smooth transition to our school, students and families. When January of 2018 roles around, that will be when I start a new chapter in my life called, retirement.


As I look at our graduates, I see such a promising future ahead for them. Their enthusiasm, positive outlook and zest for life will take them far in their next chapter. I wish them the very best in their new journey.

Thank You

To all of our families who share with us their children. It is a precious gift that we take seriously. Our mission every day is to help each child succeed no matter what it takes. The staff at Nottawa School is not only dedicated to making a difference for every child, but they make it happen that every child is successful. There is nothing more that we can ask for!

Thank you all for your support, your prayers and sharing your children with us! Have the best summer ever and we will see you on September 5!

Ruth Rowe, Superintendent
