We will be checking emails throughout the summer.As we work to strengthen our partnership with JBLM, NTPS would like to introduce our Military Support Team, Carmen Lopez, NTPS Military Liaison, and Adrienne Perez, NTPS Military Family and Student Support. They are excited about facilitating outreach and advocacy between North Thurston Public Schools, Joint Base Lewis-McChord and the District’s military-connected families.

Military Family Support
Hello Military Families! NTPS is looking to improve how we communicate information and resources to our military-connected families. The Military Support Team partners with our local community to give our military families additional FREE resources. Operation Military Backpack, A Hero's Promise, Holiday Support, Graduation Support, are just of some of the wonderful resources that we offer. So, if you are an NTPS Military-connected family, which means you currently serve or have served, and are interested in receiving REMIND communications about events, activities, information, and resources throughout the year, we ask that you take a moment and complete this form. Thank you.
