Our goal is to have all families set up with our Parent Square communication tool, including their correct language setting, over the next few weeks!
The process is to:
1. Download the app
2. Click the three lines at the top left
3. Account – Preferences – Language
4. Select language.
Parent Square can translate all school correspondence, including messages from you (if needed)! You can also change your method of notification, Notification Settings. We recommend instant notification as the digest is sent at 6:00p.m. If you have questions or need assistance with changing your settings, please call the school office at 317-594-4130.
Below you will find a brief video in Spanish regarding how to change language settings in Parent Square to Spanish.
Como usar Parent Square en Español!
New Britton y los maestros vamos a usar la aplicación “PARENT SQUARE” para communicar este año. Puede usar todo en español. Por favor usa la información y el video aquí para ponerse en su teléfono. Si tenga pregunta pueda enviar un mensaje a Mrs. Darragh: firstname.lastname@example.org

We are partnering with local business Wasson Nursery to bring you some great looking flowers. The sale runs through the end of the school day on Wednesday, August 30th.
You will pick up your mums at Wasson Nursery in Fishers (13279 E 126th Street). Pickup will be Monday, September 11th and Tuesday, September 12th from 4pm-6pm. When you go to pick up, you just tell them the name on your order and that you ordered through New Britton's fundraiser.
The PTO needs volunteers to help distribute mums. Please sign up below if you are able to help!
Tickets will be sold at the door - payment can be cash or credit card.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
Students continued the Second Step Elementary digital program, a researched-based social-emotional learning program designed to improve children’s social-emotional skills. Second Step skills and concepts are designed to help children both in and out of school.
Please see the Second Step Weekly Home Link attached at the bottom of the newsletter for specific information discussed in each grade level Weeks 1 and 2.
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
