Welcome to Week 24!

Thank you for reading our newsletter! 

Individual APTT Meetings

We are wrapping up our Individual Academic Parent Teacher Team (APTT) meetings this week. Thank you to everyone who has attended! 

Progress Reports

Progress Reports go home on Thursday, February 9. We are officially half way through the 3rd 9 weeks of school! 4th grade parents - due to the St. Augustine field trip, your child may bring their progress report home the following day.

Dismissal Reminder

NES uses rider cards for student pickup. We are noticing that many families are not bringing their cards to pickup which significantly delays the process for those who are in line with their cards. If you need an additional pickup card, please simply contact our front office this week and request one.

Effective Monday, February 13 - families who do not have their pickup card will need to go to the front office to do an ID check prior to picking up their child. 


Just a reminder - Friday - January 27 through February 10 is our state FTE count window. Students must be in attendance for us to receive funding for them this school year.

Coca Cola Give Fundraiser 

Just a reminder that NES participates in Coca Cola Give rewards program. No additional purchases are needed - you can simply select to give to NES based on the purchases that you have already made! If you do not want to create an account, we will gladly accept the bottle caps or boxes with codes and enter them for you! To date, we have made over $200 dollars!!! Thank you for supporting NES!
