Welcome to Week 27!

Welcome to another wonderful week at NES! Spring Break is just two weeks away. Lots of end of the year dates are now available - be sure to check them out and mark your calendars!

VPK Enrollment

OCSB VPK programs are facilitated by the district office. If you have a child who will be 4 years old prior to September 1 and would like to enroll them in our VPK program, it is very important that you contact the district office immediately. There is only one VPK class and seats fill up quickly.


The last day of this grading period is Friday, March 8. End of quarter assessments are coming up, and daily attendance is more important than ever.

Report Cards are available after Spring Break, on March 25. 3rd to 5th grade awards ceremonies will be held on March 25 as well.

3rd 9 Week PBIS Days

Check out the PBIS events that teachers have planned for this grading period. Students must be in good standing with discipline to attend.

In addition to the end of the quarter AR reward events, students are also recognized for achieving milestones such as 50 Points Club, 100 Points Club, 200 Points Club and so on.
