NPE Rockets Monthly Newsletter

December 2017


Thank you to all of you who participated in the PTA fundraiser! We appreciate your support!

Last year we did a school fundraiser with Yankee Candles. This year we have decided to have Kona Ice days. When your child brings $2 for a sno cone, a portion of that money goes back to North Pointe. Please consider supporting our school by sending in $2 so your child can enjoy a tasty treat!

Please do not drop your child off in the parking lot in the morning. If you want to park and walk them across the crosswalk, that is fine. We do not want students walking across alone. Thank you for helping us keep our Rockets safe.

If your child rides the bus, please remind them to always remain seated on the bus, keep their hands and feet to themselves and use kind words. We had an issue with a bus leaving campus extremely late on November 17th. We answered many phone calls but please add Transportation's phone number to your contacts in your phone. They will always be available in case no one is at the front desk at North Pointe. We have someone in the office answering phone until 4:00 pm. After that, you will need to contact Transportation. Their number is 281-284-0600.
