NAE School Calendar

Don't miss a thing, check out the NAES calendar here!

Bus Evacuation Drill

Our school will be conducting a practice school bus evacuation drill on October 9th. The practice drill will take place on school grounds and will be co-lead by transportation drivers and school staff.

The purpose of this drill is to teach new students and remind returning students about how to safely exit their school bus in the event of an accident. This is a routine practice drill that is required by ODE in the Fall and Spring.

Please contact our office if you have any questions or concerns.

Students and adults will be encouraged to come dressed in costume and engage in fun games and fall activities. This is a great way to reconnect (or possibly meet for the first time) with your NAES school community!

Fall Festival Classroom Baskets!

Donate any themed items you can to our classroom baskets for our Fall Festival silent auction!

We are trying to put together at least two baskets per grade level! The boxes of items are growing but we could still use more things. Then you will get the opportunity to bid on any of the baskets to raise funds for our wonderful PTP!

Forming Two Lines at Pick Up

Thank you, parents and family members, for making pick up back by North Albany Middle School go smoothly. Just a reminder that when you come into the parking lot, please form two lines and as you get closer to the pick up point the two lines narrow down to one.


Please let family members that do not receive this newsletter know about this information. Our hope is for this process to flow smoothly and to send families on their way quickly and safely.

This Month's Character Trait is Friendship.

The read aloud book for the month is, "Those Shoes" by Maribeth Boelts.
