Support our Library
We’re excited to invite you to join us in making our school library an even more vibrant and inspiring place for our students. Books are not just words on pages; they are gateways to imagination, knowledge, and endless adventures. To achieve this, we’re launching our “Donate a Book” program. Here’s how it works:
· You can donate a book in honor of your child’s birthday, a special milestone, or simply to contribute to our library’s growth.
· The publisher will add a beautiful bookplate with your personalized message and send the book directly to our library, ready for eager young readers to enjoy.
· Visit our library donation page to choose a book from our book list. https://www.btsb.com/sosl/newbrittonelementary2
National Hispanic Heritage Month
Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month at New Britton!
“Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. Throughout the month, we have a series of exciting activities planned. Our students will have the opportunity to share their own heritage and experiences, helping us all gain a deeper understanding of Hispanic culture.
When you visit for parent conferences, be sure to visit our Center X, where you’ll find an engaging student-driven display showcasing the beauty and diversity of Hispanic culture. Students are encouraged to bring artifacts or photos that represent their culture, and these will be proudly displayed in our Center X, fostering a sense of unity and appreciation.

Snack Attack - Fishers Youth Assistance Program
NBE is pleased to announce the return of the Snack Attack program for those students in need. This program, supported by the Fishers Youth Assistance Program, is designed to provide students a little extra nourishment for the weekend until they can receive a hot meal at school on Monday.
Here's how the program works. Your student will pick up a small sack of food to be taken home over the weekend. The sack is filled with individually wrapped snacks such as granola bars, fruit cups, pop tarts, peanut butter/crackers, Goldfish crackers, etc. The type of snacks will vary each week. Please let us know if your child has a peanut allergy as he/she will receive a special bag of peanut-free snacks.
There is no cost to you or the school. This program is open to students that qualify for the reduced lunch program or have an increased need currently.
To be part of this free program, you must sign up your family online. https://forms.gle/xrKNaxRaLypSqKvV8
