NESA Monday Message May 22, 2023
We have made it to our last full week of the school year. We are in full swing for semester exams and excited to celebrate banquet and graduation. It has truly been a fabulous year of performances, projects, and successes. We are so proud of all of our students and ready to launch the Class of 2023 with confidence. We know you are all destined for a bright future!
We are also celebrating two amazing members of our NESA Faculty. Dena Mabry, Director of Dance and Heidi Whitus, Director of Cinema will be retiring at the close of this school year. They have been extraordinary teachers and directors. We cannot say enough wonderful things about them both. Ms. Mabry and Mrs. Whitus, you are leaving a legacy of passion, excellence, and heart with NESA. Your impact and contribution know no limits. Thank you for your incredible service and dedication to the NESA Family and Arts Education. We love you and will miss you greatly!
NESA Summer School registration link is posted below. We will only be offering PE this summer due to staffing shortages. If your child is still in need of a Health credit, please consider registering for NEISD's summer school hosted by MacArthur HS. Your child must visit with their counselor for summer school approval.
