Welcome to Week 35!

Happy Mothers’ Day to all of our NES moms and grandmoms! We hope your day is extra special and full of lots of love! 

Thank you for reading our Weekly Memo to stay on top of the most important happenings at NES. With only three weeks of school left, we have a lot to accomplish! 

Students in grades K-3 are participating in their end of the year iReady diagnostics assessments, and students in grades 3-5 will be participating in the Florida Standards Assessments.

Florida Standards Assessments

Specific assessment dates for students who receive unique accommodations, vary. Please help us by making sure that students get a good night’s sleep the day prior to their assessment, and they are at school on time. Breakfast is served at school! 


We are confident that our students do well on these tests!
