Nixon Elementary Weekly Update

May 3, 2021

It's May!

Hello Nixon Families!

It's finally May which means warmer weather, more sunshine, and a lot of fun activities here at school as we creep closer to the end of the school year. Check out a few updates below for all of our Nixon families.

Picture Retakes Are This Week: Picture retakes will be held on May 4th. Whether you missed your first opportunity for taking pictures or you want a redo, please plan on Tuesday May 4 between 9:00-11:45 am for retakes. If your child is in person, we will have them come from their classrooms. If your child is a remote learner, please drop them off at the Nixon front door and we will bring them into the school (be sure they have a mask!). Pictures only take a couple of minutes, so you'll want to stay in your car and we'll bring them right back out when they are done with their picture. Check your email for an update from Lifetouch or call our front office with questions.

Device Collection: For both in-person and remote families, we will be collecting, cleaning, and storing our laptop devices. The only learners keeping their devices are our outgoing 5th graders who will take these devices with them to middle school. Remote Families: See the flyer below for more information about device drop off. In person 5th graders will bring their device and power cord home on the last day of school. You are responsible for this device over the summer. Our remote families of 5th graders, please keep those devices at home over the summer.

5th Grade Celebration: This year we will be celebrating our 5th graders as they move onto middle school with a celebration on May 27th. We will have a virtual assembly for parents and classrooms to join. We will have our annual 5th grade slideshow followed by our awards/recognition starting around 2:45pm. We hope families our of 5th graders will join us for this event--a link will be coming soon!

Remote Families: If you have any materials that belong to the school, specifically text books, please plan to drop those off with your child's device on either June 4 or June 7th.

  • May 4: Picture Retake Day
  • May 18: Camp Tanager Trip (Cochran, Gallaway, Harmer, Havlik)

Teacher Appreciation Week

A week really isn't enough to show our gratitude for all our Nixon teachers do every day for learners. The energy, time, and love each of our teachers puts into their job day in and day out for our learners is immeasurable. If you are looking to help your child acknowledge their teacher this week in a special way, check out some of the ways listed below to show appreciation for their teachers.
