News from Mrs. Mankin

Dear Bulldog Families,

We have had an engaging week of learning for ALL members of our learning community this week. Students have partnered with peers, engaged in small groups, and worked independently throughout different portions of the day and week.

Our adult Bulldogs had an amazing day of learning today. This morning, staff members were able to connect with teacher leaders around the district both in-person at Fishers High School and virtually, depending upon the session. When we joined as a staff, teachers were "buzzing" in conversation about all of the new ideas they received to support students. We started our afternoon with some self-care opportunities before working in grade-level teams and then K-2 and 3-4 cohorts to dig into responsive writing strategies as well as priority standards. We appreciate the opportunity to strengthen our teaching craft by engaging in professional learning and dialogue.

HSE Schools will be mask optional starting on Tuesday, February 22 following the return from Presidents’ Day weekend. Please note, masks will still be required on the school bus per federal mandate. There have also been quite a few updates to our Covid-19 protocols. Please review the information that was sent Thursday afternoon (2/17). This updated information can also be found on our HSE website, District News

We hope that you and your family enjoy the holiday weekend! As always, thank you for partnering with us in education.

HSEF Game Day

Join the Fishers community as it “tips-off” the tenth season of GAME DAY on Friday, February 18, 2022 at 6:30 pm at Conner Prairie.

Grab your favorite jersey for an informal evening celebrating basketball and excellence in education. The high energy event will feature delicious game day food and drink, exciting entertainment and an impressive silent auction.

Game Day has quickly become one of the signature events in Fishers, raising funds to support all 22 district schools and attracting a sell out crowd.

Plan to come as a single player or bring your whole team. But remember, this is a 21 and over event. A limited number of tickets are available to purchase. Each ticket is a tax deductible donation used to inspire innovation in local education.

Love HSE Schools, but can’t make it to Game Day? You can be a Benchwarmer and make a donation here!

Tickets can be purchased by accessing the HSEF website.

Library News

Volunteers Needed!

As we are beginning our 2nd semester of the school year, we could use some help in the library. If you are interested in volunteering in the library, please sign up using the link below.

If it will be your first time, please let Mrs. Williams (kwilliams@hse.k12.in.us) know what day and time you will be coming so she can be sure to be in the library to give directions.

Feel free to grab a friend and come shelve some books! It normally takes an hour or so to put the books away. Volunteers are free to come at a time that is convenient for them anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. You must have a current SafeVisitor background check on file. If you have any questions, please ask!


Support our Library

Are you looking for a way to support the NBE library? If so, we have a program called Support our Library! Using the link below, you can choose a book to donate to our library. You have the option to donate the book in honor of a teacher, a student for his/her birthday, or just for the fun of reading! These books are library bound books and come processed...which means they are ready for the shelf and checkout to students as soon are they arrive at NBE. If you choose to donate a book to our library, Mrs. Williams will share the book first with your child's class. Thanks for being willing to Support our Library!!



Yearbook flyers will be coming home next week with students. You can fill out the form and return to school. You can also order online by visiting www.inter-state.com/order .

FYAP Snack Attack Program

NBE is pleased to announce the return of the Snack Attack program for those students in need. This program, supported by the Fishers Youth Assistance Program, is designed to provide students a little extra nourishment for the weekend until they can receive a hot meal at school on Monday.

Here's how the program works. Your student will pick up a small sack of food to be taken home over the weekend. The sack is filled with individually wrapped snacks such as granola bars, fruit cups, pop tarts, peanut butter/crackers, Goldfish crackers, etc. The type of snacks will vary each week. Please let us know if your child has a peanut allergy as he/she will receive a special bag of peanut-free snacks.

There is no cost to you or the school. If you are interested in having your student participate in FYAP's Snack Attack or have questions, please contact Sherri Leiner, NBE School Counselor at sleiner@hse.k12.in.us
