Hot Topics @ NPE
  • Time Change
    The time change is this weekend. Be sure to FALL BACK one hour on Saturday night, November 1.
  • Lunch Money
    Please help us with lunch money. Many students qualified for free/reduced lunch after school started, but any lunch money charged up to that point must be paid. Also, students are not suppose to charge over $10.00, but we have quite a few that over the limit. Please check your child's lunch balance and help us get these outstanding bills paid. Also, please make sure that your child has money in his/her account to purchase school meals. Anyone not on free lunch that owes over $10.00 will receive a note and will not be able to have school meals until at least part of the balance is paid.
  • Marble Slab Orders
    We will be doing  Marble Slab preorders from Monday, November 3 through Wednesday, November 5. All orders must be received by then. Students will bring the order forms home either Friday, October 31 or Monday, November 3. The ice cream will be delivered Friday, November 14.
  • Parent Math Nights
    Our First Grade Parent Math Night is Tuesday, November 4, from 4:30-6:00. The Kindergarten Math Night is Thursday, November 6, from 4:30-6:00. The meetings begin in the Multipurpose Room and then move to the classrooms for a demonstration lesson and a time of question and answer. We hope to see many parents on one of the two nights.
  • Report Cards
    Report cards for Kindergarten and First Grade for the 2nd Six Weeks go home on Thursday, November 6.
  • NUT Pass Day
    For students who earn a NUT Pass, they will be able to wear a shirt of their choosing on Thursday, November 6. There was a misprint on the reminder note. It says Wednesday, but the correct day is Thursday.
  • Parents Helping Parents
    Our next Parents Helping Parents meeting is Friday, November 7, at the Dogwood Neighborhood Center from 11:30-12:30. We invite all of our parents as well as parents from other schools to attend.
  • $1.00 Blue Jeans on Fridays
    Students are able to wear jeans each Friday (or the last school day of the week) for $1.00. Each child that wears jeans needs to bring the dollar with them on that particular day. On those days students may wear their NPE spirit shirt or a uniform shirt. If students do not wear jeans on Fridays, they must wear their khaki bottoms. The jeans must be free of holes and other extra designs. Please help support our school in raising funds to purchase additional materials for the students.
  • Veterans Day
    There is no school on Tuesday, November 11, in observance of Veterans Day.
  • Eureka Math Information
    If you visit our Useful Links page, you will see some links for Eureka Math help. In this time of curriculum transition, we know that parents have many questions about how to best help their children. These links will give you information and activities that will allow you to do just that. You can also link to the Vernon Parish website, under Links for Parents, where you will find even more information and help under the Parents tab. Continue to visit our Useful Links page and the Vernon Parish site as more information and links will be added frequently. Also be looking for Math Help newsletters to be sent home periodically as the students progress through the different lessons.
  • Parent Pick-Up
    The Parent-Pick-Up line is moving much quicker now. Parent Pick-Up is from 2:40 to 3:00. Please be on time to pick up your child. If you would prefer not to have to wait in the line on a daily basis, we suggest you allow your child to ride the bus to and from school, if you live on one of our designated streets. Just let the teacher know of the change in writing.
  • 2014-15 Registrations
    Right now we are only able to accept out-of-zone registrations for First Grade students. The slots for out-of-zone Kindergarten Students are full. Anyone who lives on our zoned streets is able to register.
