Happy Mother's Day!

A Mother...

When you're a child she walks before you,
To set an example.
When you're a teenager she walks behind you
To be there should you need her.
When you're an adult she walks beside you
So that as two friends you can enjoy life together..


From http://www.mothersdaycelebration.com/mothers-day-poem2.html#mothers-day




We wish you a Happy Mother's Day!

Prizes needed!

We are planning on giving students prizes for following the NRES expectations. We would like to do a drawing every week based on the tickets students earned for great behavior. We will need quite a few prizes that will be included in the drawing. Do you know anyone or any business that might donate to us? If so, please contact Oliver Mujica at oliver.mujica@kellerisd.net.

NRES ATTENDANCE

Box Tops

  1. Look for the Box Top labels on products you already buy such as Betty Crocker products, Cheerios, Pillsbury, Ziploc, Hefty, Kleenex, and Nature Valley (find a complete list at: http://www.btfe.com).
  2. Trim the labels neatly on the lines and check the expiration dates (they will not take expired labels). Send the Box Tops in to your child's classroom in a Ziploc bag or envelope. Please include child's name, teacher's name, grade, and number of Box Tops.
  3. Sign up at http://www.btfe.com and identify “North Riverside Elementary” as your school. Look for “Bonus Box Top Offers” to win and/or opportunities to earn Box Tops for NRES. Coupons for Box Tops products are available at the BTFE website. Visit the Box Tops “Marketplace” to earn points for NRES when you shop online at participating websites.

  4. Ask your relatives and friends/neighbors with older children if they will save Box Tops for our school.



Attendance

Thank you for ensuring our students are ready for instruction every day. Please remember students need to be in the classroom by 8:00am. Our attendance goal is 97.5%. Can you help us reach it?


If students are tardy, please walk your student to the office. If your student is absent, please make sure to call or send a note to school.
