Warmer weather = Overflowing Lost and Found

Parents, as the weather warms up we find lots of sweaters and jackets around the school with no name on them – they end up in lost and found and it is OVERflowing! Help us out by checking closets and then sending your students on a mission to find what is lost and bring it home! ALL items will be donated to the NEISD Clothes Closet at the end of the semester.

5th grade students THE 5th grade committee is working hard to celebrate THE Class of 2018! They need your help collecting kindergarten photos of your tigers. Please send in photos to your teachers via email or actual photo by May 7th. A flyer is being sent home with more info or contact Kelly at kalepeska@yahoo.com
