Laptop and charger update!

All student computers were returned to students on Friday. If you child did not receive theirs back, it has been sent to the County Office for further work. In addition, 3rd and 4th grade students received their chargers. There were a great deal of broken/lost chargers. Once we receive them, 5th grade will receive their chargers.

Let's help keep our Patriots healthy! See document below with steps that can be taken to keep the germs away!

5th grade DC information

Each student / parent chaperone who has signed up to attend the trip in April should have received an email from Capital Tours at this point in order to pay their balances. Final payments are due March 1st.


If you have paid to be a chaperone for the trip, you will need to be fingerprinted very soon as it takes a few weeks to process. The list of dates is available in the front office. The sheet that needs to be turned in at the County Office is also available in the front office (it requires Mrs. Bracy's signature so please make sure you have it prior to going to the County Office.)

If you are not fingerprinted prior to the trip, you will not be allowed to attend and no refunds can be provided.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call. Mrs. Kight, Mrs. Dawson or Mrs. Helt will be glad to help you.

Candy Grams update

Thank you for the great turn out in supporting our NEHS and their efforts to raise fund by selling the Candy Grams. They will be delivered on Valentine's Day!

Address and phone number changes

If you have recently had an address or phone number change, please let your teacher or Mrs. Shannon Whaley know so we can update our system. Any changes in address will require a current water or electric bill to be given to Ms. Whaley. Thank you for your help with this matter.

If you did not receive the alert calls from the County Office over the snow days, please let your teacher know so we can check the number we have in our system. Thank you for your help.
