Today was the 2nd-grade invention fair! What imaginative 2nd graders we have at NES! Following are some of the awesome inventions! Thanks to all the families and staff that came and listened to these kiddos awesome inventions!
IMPORTANT!! We now HAVE school APRIL 2nd. And in-service (NO SCHOOL) May 1st!
Knox County Schools Board of Education changed Monday, April 2nd to a regular instructional day (previously it was in-service day), and Tuesday, May 1st is now changed to System-wide In-Service Day. This change is due to the county primary election on May 1st and anticipated high voter turnout in schools that are voting locations. We know that having high numbers of community members in our schools increases our concern for student safety. - Mr. Pratt.
Keep those box tops coming! Wednesday’s total took us to 6,580 tops, which means the school has earned the bronze level incentive – silly sock day. This does not include any box tops turned in today. We are *so close* to sports jersey day (7,500) and crazy hair or hat day (10,000).
Monday is the FINAL day for submissions! (But PTA Collections would love Friday submissions best - what else would we do with our weekend?!)
Our spring box tops contest will run through Monday, 2/26, and this time we’re shaking things up. While popsicle parties will still be awarded to the top 3 classrooms, we’re also setting some Olympic-sized goals for the entire school.
If we collectively reach the bronze level (5,000 total box tops), the whole school earns a silly sock day!
If we reach the silver level (7,500 total box tops), we will also have a sports team/jersey spirit day!...
Finally, if we reach gold (10,000 box tops), Northshore also earns crazy hair/hat day!
Let’s get clipping!
* BRONZE (5,000 total box tops) – School-wide silly sock day!
* SILVER (7,500 total box tops) – School-wide sports jersey day!
* GOLD (10,000 total box tops) – School-wide hat or crazy hair day!
We are proud to recognize two fourth grade students whose Reflections visual artworks have placed at the state level and will be considered for advancement to the national competition. Their names are Annelise Whitehead and Riley Rockwell. Congratulations!!!
