Parents and students,

Please don’t forget that we will be having our annual “Boosterthon” TOMORROW!

This is one of our biggest fundraising events of the year!  The proceeds will be used to enhance your child’s educational experience by supporting additional resources, programs and materials.  Please make sure that your son or daughter is well rested for the BIG DAY tomorrow.  We thank you for your continued support!

Reading Logs

4th and 5th grade parents,

Please remember to make sure that your son or daughter is reading every, single night.  Be sure to sign your name on the reading log (after your child has read) so that he or she can receive the proper grade once the log is turned in to the teacher.  These reading logs are due every Monday.  Thank you for all of your help.

Ms. Murphy

Welcome Back Parents and Students!

I would like to first start by welcoming all of our amazing students and parents back to Nicholson Elementary!  I hope that you had a fun, terrific summer and got a lot of rest.  Students, this week we will be reviewing a lot of the classroom and school expectations.  By taking the time to do this now, we can make certain that our school year is a HUGE SUCCESS!  This year, we are going to learn a lot and have a ton of fun while doing it!

Parents, your son or daughter will be coming home with a folder today.  Please be sure to sign all of the forms that are in that folder and have your child to return it to school tomorrow.  

Let’s make this a FANTASTIC YEAR!

Ms. Tiffany Murphy, M. Ed.
