Celebrations

-Four 5th grade students, Coach Guerra & Anderson were invited to the board meeting this past Monday to hand out this year's Showcase invitations to Dr. Gottardy, executive directors and our NEISD board members.

News/Reminders

(2/10 Email from Mrs. Jewell)- One final reminder, please make sure that ALL Read to Succeed reading logs are back to me by February 16th. Also, if you have turned in your reading logs and are receiving an email about not being complete, don’t worry, I have it all taken care of.


- We have continued to see the plates in the sink left behind. This past Thursday, there were 6 blue trays, all piled up and left in the sink. In order to synergize as a family, please wash your trays, or better yet, return them to the cafeteria. This is a small step but it goes a long way with our custodians. Thank you to those of you who have been doing this on a consistent basis, very much appreciated.
