Boosterthon is Coming

We are kicking off our 2018-2019 Boosterthon with a student pep rally on Wednesday, September 12! Last year’s Boosterthon FUN RUN raised over $35,000. Our SCHOOL GOAL this year will be to raise over $40,000!

What Is Boosterthon?

Boosterthon is NPE’s largest fundraiser. It is a fun run where students get pledges from family and friends for each lap they run. Not only does it raise money for our school, but it promotes fun, fitness and community. It’s a 9-day program that starts with a Pep Rally and ends with the big Fun Run event. This year, we’re raising funds for the learning commons and classroom enrichment (learning and technology) and we need your help!

This year's character program is called MindSpark Mystery Lab! #MindSpark is a mystery theme that combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science , Technology , Engineering , Arts , & Math ) with character building. In this incredible, science-infused character theme, your students will help a team of brainy kids solve problems using a super-lab hidden inside a school.

Volunteers are needed to help with the FUN RUN to be held on September 21st. Contact Catherine Caldwell at to sign up.

Fall Book Fair

NPE invites our students, parents, and staff to wander into an Enchanted Forest Book Fair. It’s a whimsical place full of irresistible books kids can’t wait to read so their imaginations can grow! Book Fair will be held September 24-28, additional information will be coming soon.
