  • Canned Gravy

Hello families!

Just wanted to keep you updated with school wide and classroom events!

 

This Thursday, Nickajack Kindergarten students will have a presentation about SOAR (Safe, Orderly and Respectful) presentation. Students will be able to practice different safety procedures.

 

Next week, proves to be a busy one……

 

  • Monday- Back the Jack campaign begins. Click http://nesfoundation.com/  to learn more about how you can fill the apple and help all students at NES.

 

 

  • Tuesday—sack lunch due to accommodating other grade levels for the SOAR presentation.

*Sack lunches include the following: turkey ham(non-pork) and cheese sandwich, carrots, chips or popcorn, fruit and drinks.

 

  • Wednesday—Early Release Day. **School will be dismissed 2 hours early.

Buses will still make their run and ASP is available at their regular hours.

 

  • Thursday– sack lunch due to accommodating other grade levels for the SOAR presentation.

*Sack lunches include the following: turkey ham(non-pork) and cheese sandwich, carrots, chips or popcorn, fruit and drinks.

Braves Bucks cash in day! Students have been working hard in being a respectful, responsible role model student in the hallway, during arrival and dismissal time, cafeteria and playground. The incentives are the following: 3 Braves bucks= a piece of candy, 5 Braves bucks= extra Recess, 7 Braves bucks= lunch in the classroom with their homeroom teacher.

Morning exercise will begin for Kindergarten students. Students must eat breakfast prior to going to the gym. Please also note that this is a first come first serve, as safety is our number one priority. Please make sure to look on our blogs for further information.

Please continue to write down how your child will be going home, as your child’s safety is important.

 

**** If your child will be attending a club please write down what club your child will be attending on the transportation log for that designated day.. ie: Student A will be Ballet on Tuesday. (This helps all teachers and your child know where they need to be at dismissal time)
