September has been an exciting month for NES. Ms. Densford wrote a grant for the library through Metro United Way and won! We will be receiving $14,100 for library bound books and cozy seating for our students! Way to go, Ms. Densford!
High Attendance Day was a huge success. We had 100 % attendance that day. Ms. Werner made that day lots of fun for our students with a Hollywood theme. Then, we rewarded our students with a special treat by having the Kona Ice truck. Our goal this year is to have 97% attendance or higher. Ms. Connor created a bulletin board as you come in the building where you can see our attendance percentage for the day. Please schedule wellness appointments, dentist appointments, trips and vacations on days when school is NOT in session. Thanks so much for your support! We love your kids, and we only get them for 170 days per year!
Our fundraiser will kick off on Tuesday, September 30th. This is the same fundraiser we had last year. Due to the success of this fundraiser, we only had one last year. We were able to provide bouncy houses at the Spring Fling. We will collaborate with the PTA again to provide an extra incentive to those that participate to off- set the cost of some of the activities at the Spring Fling. More information about this incentive will be coming home with the fundraiser information on Tuesday.
The fall festival is coming up in October. Please set aside Saturday, October 25th for a wonderful time with your NES family. The PTA always does a fabulous job with our festivals and would love to see you there! I’m sure they could use some volunteers as well. Please contact Ms. Peyton as the school to volunteer to help at the festival!
