Don't forget your 20 minutes of guided reading each night. The more you practice, the better you get!
-open your internet explorer (it will not work on google chrome)
-type in cnvp.dentonisd.org on the address bar
-you may get an error message about the security cerificate, click okay
-this will take you to Denton ISD's video page
-type "Nelson" in the search bar and click on "Nelson Morning announcements"
-there will be 2 choices. Click the one with the green filmstrip next to it.
Please try this out a day or two before to make sure you have the Windows Media Plugin installed and all that good stuff :) There will only be a feed during the live announcements - 7:50-8ish. So if you have a blank screen, that is normal.
If not, no worries, I will take pictures to share on our facebook page too!
Kroger Card helps our School
During the first semester, we earned over $300.00 and we only had 63 households connected to L.A. Nelson. Do you have your Kroger card connected to Nelson? If so, we will see this on the bottom of your receipt.
Our supporters (63 households) who shopped at Kroger have contributed to your $316.98 total donation. Just imagine if half of our families had their Kroger cards linked to L.A. Nelson PTA. Please double check and make sure your card is registered.
Please take time to register your card and tell your spouses and grandparents.
L.A. Nelson school code is 90039.
Dress for the Weather
Our class also tends to be on the chilly side. If you would like to send a jacket for them to keep in their cubby full-time, I'm sure they would appreciate it :)
Anytime you want to check on how your child is doing, check out our Dojo points at www.classdojo.com.
My conference time is 1:50-2:40.
