Howdy Partners! The NES PTO is invitin’ ya’ll to buckle up yer spurs, saddle up yer horse, hitch up yer wagon and mosey on over to support our old fashioned, high steppin’, rootin’ tootin’ celebration of the best darn teachers and staff this side of the Mississippi! National Teacher Appreciation Week is quickly approaching.
-This year, we have two opportunities for your family to get involved and to show off your love and appreciation. During the week of May 7-11, we need help with...
The Wild West Luncheon
We’re hosting a soup and salad bar and are rounding up some fixins! This has become a staple of teacher appreciation week at NES and we can’t pull it off without your help and donations. All information and sign ups can be found at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0f4da4a82ca31-taw2018
The Wild West Teacher Raffles/Giveaway
Every year, for as long as we can remember, the finale of Teacher Appreciation Week has been a raffle basket bonanza. This year instead of soliciting donations from local businesses, we are asking NES families to help us purchase and donate gift cards from local stores and restaurants for our first ever NES Gift Card giveaway! Information and signup can be found at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0f4da4a82ca31-taw20181

TREASURE JAR COLLECTION is ON! If you're thinking, What the heck is a treasure jar?, click here! Which classroom will collect the most? Send them in now, and keep 'em coming!
A NES Spring Fling Tradition!
Treasure Jars are a NES favorite at Spring Fling each year--all players of the Treasure Jar game walk away with a prize! Right now, we need your help making the jars! (Don't forget: the class that collects the most treasure jars wins a prize!)
Collection period: NOW through May 17.
Reminders: For the safety of our students, please pay special attention to these guidelines. Absolutely no food, candy or containers containing NUTS/TREENUTS. No recycled medicine containers and no breakable glass jars. All items in the jars should be clean, new, unused and again, peanut-free!
Where do I send the jars? Send jars into school with your child. They will be collected from each classroom. You may send in multiple jars – there is no limit! The classroom that collects the most treasure jars for the Spring Fling event will earn an extra recess.
WE NEED YOUR BAGS!
Girl Scout 5th grade Junior troop #2555 will continue with their bag collection until May 31, 2018!
