Updates from the NBE PTO


Thank you to everyone who contributed snacks to stock the NBE Staff Room during parent-teacher conferences! Since the beginning of the school year, PTO has been able to provide our NBE staff with breakfast from Big Apple Bagels on the first e-learning day, as well as lunch from Moe’s to kick off the school year. We have also shown appreciation to our NBE bus drivers and cafe staff. Your monetary and physical donations make this support possible, and we look forward to showing our appreciation throughout the year.

Don't forget to like the "New Britton Elementary Parents and Teachers" Facebook page for regular information updates, or go to the PTO page at https://nbe.hseschools.org/about/get-involved. You can also reach out to the PTO at NewBrittonPTO@gmail.com.

Winter Room Parties and Room Parents

Winter Room Parties: Dec. 17th

Each classroom needs 2 volunteers. Reach out to your teacher if you'd like to help.

Room Parents Needed: There are several Bulldog classrooms still in need of room parents. If you are interested in knowing more about this role and responsibility, please contact your child's teacher. Thank you!

PTO meeting

PTO meeting: Tuesday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m.

Enter through door 1. If you are a parent of a current student or are a current teacher YOU are already a part of the PTO, and we want your input!

We look forward to gathering parent and teacher input at our meetings in an effort to better serve our students, staff, and families. The fall and winter meetings will be a great opportunity to learn of volunteer opportunities, weigh in on programming and fundraisers, and provide input and help plan the spring all-school festival- New Britton Elementary's 30th Birthday Bash.

Dine to Donate

Thank you to all who participated in this week's City BBQ Dine to Donate! We will share more information on how this went at Tuesday's meeting.

Book Fair

We had a great Book Fair turnout! All proceeds from this fundraiser go to our school library. We hope kiddos are having fun reading their new books!

Fourth Grade T-shirt

Congratulations to Sanjayraj who is NBE's fourth grade t-shirt design winner! There were so many great designs and it was a great display of creativity by our fourth graders.

Second Step Social Emotional Learning

This week students continued the Second Step Elementary digital program, a researched-based social-emotional learning program designed to improve children’s social-emotional skills. Second Step skills and concepts are designed to help children both in and out of school.

Notes from the Nurse

-Please consider donating used tennis shoes, athletic pants, leggings, jackets or coats to the clinic for use when children need to change clothes at school.

· The clinic would also appreciate donations of plain cellulose sponges (non-scouring) for making clinic ice packs! Thank you!
