May Newsletter


Assistant Principal Message

It's hard to believe this is the last month of school. Our third, fourth, and fifth grade students have been hard at work with ILEARN testing this past week and will continue next week. There are a lot of activities happening in May. Please make sure you reference the "May Dates to Remember" as schedules are very busy this time of year.

We will send home report cards with students the last day of school. If you have questions, please do reach out to your child’s teacher OR contact the office. As always, grades can be found in Skyward.

Summer School

Thanks for all the parents who took the time to return the summer school permission forms. We should be sharing with you more information regarding transportation (if you requested). If you don’t hear anything by May 24th, please call the front office. Remember, summer school runs from June 5 - June 22nd (morning only for elementary students).

Student Council/National Honor Society

Student Council and National Honor Society teamed up to sponsor a food and supply drive to benefit Carroll Manor. Over 500 items were collected.

NEHS will be inducting new members on Thursday, May 18 at 7:15 a.m.

Message from Nurse Allen

If your student has medication in the nurse's office, it will be available for pick-up anytime during the school day until 5/25. After this, all remaining medication will be disposed of. I cannot send medication home with your student.


PTA will meet on Tuesday, May 16th at 7pm in the elementary school cafeteria. Please consider coming even if you haven’t been to a meeting in the past.

Notes and Changes in Transportation

If you are running late and your child is tardy, it is important to sign your child in when they arrive. Please come into the building with your child to sign them in for the day.

If you send a note to your child's teacher or the office please include your child's first and last name, teacher's name and the date.

If your child is going home a different way, we need to have a note or a phone call before 2:00 pm. There are many students in the building and the end of the day gets hectic. If you call for a change of transportation after 2:00, we cannot guarantee the message will get to your child. Please be considerate of our office staff and make arrangements before 2:00.
