New Britton Elementary - November 18, 2016

Principal's Message

Dear Bulldog Families,

November is a time in which we reflect upon things for which we are thankful. There are SO MANY things to be thankful for when thinking about New Britton Elementary. Every day I am thankful to be the leader of this amazing school community. Thank you for sharing your children with us so that we can help guide them as they grow as learners and children.

As part of our 25th year recognition, Mr. Martin invited second grade students to create a video in which they shared things they are thankful for in regards to New Britton. Here are just a couple of things they shared:

"I am thankful for awesome teachers at NBE."

By E. Hower

"I am thankful for writing at NBE because I love to write."

By M. Snapp

I am also thankful for our teachers and support staff. The number of smiles, kind words, academic and social supports, and guidance provided to our students and families on a daily basis is so appreciated. And finally I am thankful for our parents and families. Without your partnership and support, we would not see the tremendous growth of your children throughout the year.

A wonderful way to help your student's interest in science grow is to attend our Science Fair Kickoff on Tuesday, November 29 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. Professor Steve will be making a return visit to NBE to WOW our students with science experiments they can do at home and to inspire them to question and think deeply about the science behind things. Our annual NBE Science Fair will be held on Thursday, February 16th. Science Fair participants must be in grades 1-4, but ALL New Britton students are invited to attend our Science Fair Kickoff. Many of our kindergarten teachers use this kickoff as an opportunity to then conduct some related science experiments in class. We hope to see you all at this family event.

As always, thank you for partnering with us in education! Have a safe and relaxing Thanksgiving.

Staff Spotlight - Brad Ferris - NBE Building Technology

My name is Brad Ferris and I'm coming to New Britton after six years with Apple Inc. I live with my wife, MaryAnna, and our three dogs in the South Broad Ripple area (SoBro if you're hip). It's always been difficult to choose my favorite book because I have so many! However, in keeping with the cultural stereotypes about IT professionals, I generally say Frank Herbert's Dune or Lord of the Rings. In my spare time I like to engage in a number of creative endeavors: photography, videography, fictional cartography, creating writing, story telling, building things (sometimes quite poorly) out of wood and DIY home projects to name a few.


If your child will be absent due to illness or medical/legal appointment, please call attendance line at (317) 594-4130. This phone line also has a 24 hour voice mail option. Please leave your name, your child's grade, teacher and the reason for the absence by 9:30 that morning. Please do not email the office with this information.
