Welcome to Week 6!
Happy Grandparents’ Day to all of our NES grandparents! Thank you for filling the world with extra love!
This is a short week for students. Monday is a Professional Learning Day for teachers, and there is no school for students. We are looking forward to seeing students again on Tuesday!
Important Information for Parents
Student Code of Conduct booklets were sent home with students in August. Please review the contents of the booklet and return the last page, signed, to your child’s teacher.
Long Term Substitute letters were sent home with students on Friday. The intent of these letters is to inform families about a substitute teacher teaching their child in a certain class and/or classes.
