Book and Bag Contest

Throughout the month of May, all students at NMES have an opportunity to win awesome summer reading books! The NMES staff members have decorated bags to represent popular children's books, and have included some treats (i.e. kites, lemonade mix, games, etc.) in the bags along with the books. The Books and Bags will be on display in the back of the media center throughout the entire month of May. Throughout the month, staff members will be handing out tickets to students they see displaying great character. Students can earn tickets in the classroom, cafeteria, specials, hallways and more. As students earn tickets, they will write their full name on them and bring them to the media center to drop off in the bag they wish to win! In June, we will pull a winner for each Book and Bag! If you have questions, ask Mrs. Siderius by emailing her at
