We are Kind, We are Learners, We are Leaders

Note from the Principal

February 22nd, 2021

Hello NES Families,

Happy Monday! There aren't too many things to remember about this coming week, but we are excited about recognizing some students. Here's the details...

“We are Nooksack” Awards: Wednesday will be our next virtual school-wide assembly! We will be recognizing students who are demonstrating our 3 school-wide expectations: We are Kind, We are Learners, We are Leaders.

  • Last week on Friday Feb. 19th, each teacher presented an award for each expectation to a student in their class.
  • Building character: We have many students who demonstrate these traits all the time. We tell our students that giving an award to a specific student is a way to celebrate and feel happy for our friends, and hear examples of our school-wide commitments so we can keep getting better.
  • On Wednesday, February 24th, we will have our second all-school virtual assembly. We will share the names of students who earned an award and also have some fun together across the school...all while remaining in our cohorts.
  • Can families join the zoom? I’m sorry, but no. The assembly is just for our in-person classrooms due to confidentiality and using Zoom. We will share the award recipients with families through an email. We will be recognizing some NV@Home students too.

Thank you for sending your kids to school with clean masks that fit well over the nose. This really helps our day run smoothly. We appreciate your continued support.

Thank you,

Katie Brown

COVID Testing Reminder

If a family member is getting tested for COVID, all students in the household should stay home pending test results. Thank you for following this important guideline and communicating with the school.

What if we have a Snow Day?

Here is the plan for Preschool - 5th grade if we are unable to come to school due to snow or inclement weather/road conditions. This plan will ensure we do not have to make up school days at the end of the year in June.

Keep the snow day learning packet in a safe place. This packet has at home learning activities and routines to complete. Students will then return their packet upon returning to school after a snow day(s) so teachers can record their attendance for at home learning day(s).

In addition to the learning activities, posting pictures of students making snow angels on our NES Facebook page are also welcome!! Parents and staff included!

Picture Day!

Picture day will be Wednesday, March 24th. Re-takes will be Thursday, May 6th. Students who may be out of school on the 24th can take pictures on May 6th also. We will create a schedule for NV@Home students as well.
