End of the Year Draws Near!

Just a friendly reminder that we need to be especially aware of students who are stressed and worried about the end of the school year. I know all of you are aware that our students rely a great deal on us for food, love, and care, and, that we always try to be a little more conscientious of their needs before breaks in our calendar. Summer break is a long time to be away from you. It is a scary time for some of our fifth graders who are going to middle school. Even our younger kiddos are worried about who they will have for their teacher next year. Prevention and pre-planning are really key right now to keeping your students on track until the last day. Again, I know you know this, but I just want to remind you as you are also feeling the stress that comes with the end of the year! Thanks for everything you do to make NWES the best place for kids ever!!

A few facts from this week!
  • We have had two colleagues come into our office this week to compliment our school on how friendly and kid-oriented it is. Your hard work does get noticed!
  • While I was working in the cafeteria today, two of our first grade girls were going through the line and reciting the life goal pledge together! Your hard work does get noticed!
  • Our PTO threw us the most delicious Staff Appreciation Luncheon! Your hard work does get noticed!
  • The lunch auditor told us she wished she could clone our cafeteria and use it everywhere! Your hard work does get noticed!
