Water Bottles

Students are able to have and should have a water bottle during the school day. Proper hydration is crucial to students being able to focus and learn and this year, with the water fountains not usable, our bottle fillers are the only source of water for students. We give students a disposable cup if they forgot their water bottle but please make sure your student has a water bottle to use at school regularly. This will help with healthy learning habits

NVE Field Day Volunteers Needed - May 21

We are looking forward to having field day this year and for it to go smoothly we are asking for some volunteers. Much of the volunteers duties will be outside. It is required that a background check be done before anyone can volunteer at JCS schools. If you would like to volunteer this year we would really appreciate it. Please stop by the office for a background check form or request one to be sent home with your child. Deadline to sign up to volunteer is Wednesday, May 5.

IMPORTANT: Car Pick Up Safety

"As you wait in line to drop off or pick up students at NVE, please make sure that you are staying on the correct side of the road. Even though it may be tempting to "jump line" by driving on the opposite side of the road to get into our parking lot, this creates a very dangerous situation for oncoming traffic on such a narrow road. Please model patience, grace and safety for our students as you drop off and pick up your student. We appreciate your help in making NVE a safer place!"

Title 1 Literacy Tip of the Week
