Field Day T-Shirts
Our annual NPE Field Day will be here before you know it! Each year we offer a special T-shirt to wear for this event. It is not mandatory to have one in order to participate, but it does make it extra-fun. The shirts are on sale right now for $12. The last day to place an order is Friday, April 10. After that deadline, we will not be able to add any other orders, so if you would like to place an order, it must be done by the deadline.

Hot Topics @ NPE
  • $1.00 Blue Jeans on Fridays - March Money for St. Jude
    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. All the money raised in March will go to St. Jude.

    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 $20.00, 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. After three notifications of overdue money, we have to turn that information over to the Child Welfare and Attendance Director at the School Board Office.

    With cooler weather here, please remember that if a student wears more than one shirt, at least one of them is to have a collar, and any shirts worn under uniform shirts must be in uniform colors. All socks and tights must be plain white or black.
  • 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
    Parent Pick-Up is from 2:40 to 2:55. 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.
