Welcome to Week 23!

Welcome to another week! 

Thank you to everyone who attended our Family Engagement night on Thursday! We had a good time and tacos made it even better. Save the date for the February Family night at our Book Fair on Thursday, February 22!

Out of Field Newsletters

Attention Parents! Our January Out of Field Newsletters are sent home with students on Tuesday, January 30 with students whose teachers are currently out of field in their subject area.

School Supplies

We are more than half-way through the school year, and our beginning of the year supplies are dwindling down. Ask your child’s teachers what supplies are needed the most. Most everyone could use more pencils, dry-erase markers, crayons, glue, colored paper, and of course - tissue paper.

NES School News for Students

We are excited to announce that our Student Council received a grant to start a student newsletter and the first edition is now available electronically! It is all done by students, for students. Check it out!
