THE's Weekly eBlast
April 23, 2017
We are so incredibly proud of our 5th graders and their teachers. We got great news this week regarding the first administration of 5th Grade Reading and Math Assessments. We scored 91% in Reading and 97% in Math. Congratulations Tigers!
We are also so proud of our Multicultural Day Student Speakers and our NEISD Special Olympic Students. They all did amazing job showcasing their talents this week. Way to go boys and girls!
This week, we will be collecting March of Dimes donations for the 4 day week. Mrs. Sensat, Counselor, came up with a creative way to encourage us to donate our loose change for a wonderful cause. Who will be dressing like a baby?
See below for the details:
There will be decorated jars in the front office every morning with baby pictures of Mrs. Bailey, Mrs. Campos and Mrs. Staples. Put your loose change or any amount of money you want in the jar of your choice. The baby with the most money raised will dress like a baby for the Fiesta parade on Thursday, April 27th.
As we begin to wrap of the last 6 weeks of school, please take time to check out your child's library and cafeteria accounts to clear any balances.
Thank you for your support and We hope that you had a wonderful weekend.

Warmer weather = Overflowing Lost and Found
Parents, as the weather warms up we find lots of sweaters and jackets around the school with no name on them – they end up in lost and found and it is OVERflowing! Help us out by checking closets and then sending your students on a mission to find what is lost and bring it home! ALL items will be donated to the NEISD Clothes Closet at the end of the semester.
5th grade students – 5th grade spirit is popping up all over campus. Don’t forget to show off your 5th grade spirit shirt on WILD Wednesday!
Plug in with PTA and Back the Future!
