Good morning Fantastic Nerge Families!
Halloween is just around the corner. Please read the attached letter detailing our Halloween procedures this year:
Senate Bill 16
Last Friday, I sent an email regarding Senate Bill 16. Please note that this issue will also be discussed at our PTA meeting tomorrow night. The meeting is at 7:00 PM in the teachers’ lounge. Please consider joining us!
The Nerge Night Hike has been rescheduled to this Wednesday, October 22nd, at 7:00. Last time, we cancelled it due to cloudy weather. The weather report this Wednesday looks clear, but in the event of uncooperative weather, we will still hold the event and have some indoor options to make an interesting and engaging experience for the students.
PARCC Practice Websites:
This spring, students in grades three through six will be taking the PARCC Assessment. At Nerge, we are providing purposeful learning opportunities that will prepare students to demonstrate their abilities on the PARCC Assessment. If you are interested in finding out more about PARCC or looking for opportunities to practice, here are two websites to get you started:
