  • The Military Support Team will be out of the office starting June 25 and will return in September. Have a safe and fun summer! We will be checking emails throughout the summer. Thank you in advance for your patience with our repsonse to emails. 
    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.

The backpacks will be distributed on:

    Due to the limited amount of backpacks this year, siblings from other schools buildings will not be able to pick up a backpack. Additional resources will be shared on site for the Little Red School House.

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.
