A message from Principal Bivens

Happy Spring!

We are (almost) through 75% of our school year! Fourth quarter will go fast and summer will be here before we know it. We are planning to have Camp Invention at TNES this summer during the week of June 19th-23rd. Please be on the lookout for an email later this week with a link to register 3rd-5th graders (current school year). We are also gearing up for State Assessments. State Assessments begin the week of March 27th. Here is the link to our State Assessment schedule:

I hope everyone has a great Spring Break!
