Hope you had a great weekend! We look forward to greeting the students on Monday.
We look forward to having a great week together and wish the students a fabulous Spring Break, March 12th-16th. They certainly deserve it after all of their hard work toward reaching their goals and school wide goals.

NEISD Used Book Sale Collection - Clean out your bookshelves for a great event! We will be collecting gently used books, CDs, and DVDs from March 1-31. A collection box will be available in the inside foyer of the school. Please remember to fill out the tags from the flyer (available on the PTA website) that was sent home and tape it to each of your bags/boxes of books.
Our school receives a portion of the sales so please consider supporting the sale and our school! The Used Book Sale will be held April 5-8 at the Blossom Athletic Center gym. More info is available on the PTA website. It’s a great way to stock your shelves with your favorite books. Please contact Summer Broome at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
