Updates from Mrs. Holt

Parent/Teacher Conferences:

Parent conference week will be October 3-7th. The purpose of the early release dates is provide a time when parents and teachers can talk about your child's beginning of the year assessments and how WE can work as a team to help your child flourish this year and prepare him/her for the next grade level. If you haven't already scheduled a time, please talk to your child's teacher.

School will dismiss at 12:00. Please make sure to organize pick-up for your child. We are striving for 100% attendance.

Friday, September 23rd is PICTURE DAY!!! All volunteer spots for this event are filled. Please look for picture order forms in backpacks.


We have started our "Buy An Extra" collection. Each year, we take up collections of plates, napkins, cups, and plastic wares for use throughout the year at luncheons, socials, coffee walks, etc. You can find out what your child's grade is being asked to collect by checking www.pt-avenue.com (use organization code NREPTA), look in Wednesday folders for the flyer, or check Facebook for posting.

And last, remember Box Tops, Amazon Smile, and Kroger cards can all help our school financially. So please consider collecting or using these resources.

Have a great week!!
