Weekly Homework

Homework is changing again! It will now consist of reading, iStation, and Think Through Math. Attached to the weekly email is a homework sheet that needs to be printed out. Just like before, it needs to be initialed by a parent and turned in Thursday morning so that we know your child has done their homework.

The websites to use are listed on the homework sheet and a new iStation letter has been sent home with your child in case it disappeared since the beginning of the year. :-)


There will be no tutoring the week of April 27th.

If your student is invited to tutoring on May 4th, you will receive an notification via e-mail from their teacher. There are only two more remaining tutoring dates, May 4th and May 11th. Both days are Mondays, as we will be combining math and reading tutoring to end the year strong!

3rd Annual Nichols Carnival

Nichols carnival will take place on Friday, May 15 from 5:30 to 8 pm. There will be DJ, Slide, Obstacle Course and Rock Wall, Photo Booth, Games, Food (for purchase), the Silent Auction, and much more! Ticket sale forms will be available in order to purchase your carnival tickets; presale dates will be offered in May. The PTA needs volunteers to help at the carnival; opportunities to sign up to volunteer are available. Please contact Dorothy Holt at familyfun@mynicholspta.org for more information.

Watch D.O.G.S. for Carnival Volunteers

We are searching for about 12 dads to help run the inflatables at our Nichols Carnival on May 15th.
