*Important Info* - Panther Pride Festival - Tuesday Night at 6pm!

All 4th graders have been invited to the annual Fossil Ridge Feeder Pattern Festival called "Panther Pride Festival". A letter was sent home earlier this month, but we wanted to let you know that your child is STILL able to participate if they want to!

They will be singing two of our songs from our program (that will be held in May). You will need to provide transportation to Fossil Ridge High School and remain at the concert for that evening.

*Students must be in the Fossil Ridge Auditorium at 6pm*

*Students can wear their gray NRES shirt from this year and jeans!*


***IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILD TO PARTICIPATE TOMORROW NIGHT, JUST WRITE A NOTE or EMAIL THAT THEY ARE PARTICIPATING AND YOU ARE AWARE YOU ARE TO DRIVE THEM TO/FROM THE EVENT!***

Science Fair Project - mandatory participation...please sign and return letter!

An information packet was sent home today regarding the Science Fair project. Mrs. August has decided to make it mandatory for all 3rd and 4th grade students! The packet includes important information regarding the requirements for the project as well as upcoming due dates.

*PLEASE SIGN AND RETURN ASAP*

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know ASAP!

"Point System"...Parent Signature Required!

A letter was sent home regarding "points" that students may lose. This letter detailed out that, starting today, your child has 30pts. If their behavior or class work/homework does not meet NRES expectations, then they have the potential to lose points. A loss of 10 or more points by Play Day, will impact the amount of events they will participate in there. A loss of 20 or more points by Field Day will also impact the participation in this event. A loss of 25 or more points by our Field Trip will impact the tours on the trip and result in an alternative assignment provided while at the Stockyards.

Please note - all three: Play Day, Field Day and the Field Trip are all events in which are considered to be a privilege to students and are not required...yet, must be earned.

You will be notified by phone call or email if your child is approaching the loss of an event due to behavior or work expectations not being followed.

*PLEASE BE SURE TO SIGN AND RETURN THIS LETTER*

As always, if you have any questions regarding your child, please contact us! We would be happy to discuss any concerns with you!
