Good morning Excellent Nerge Community!
Many staff members were out and about in the community Wednesday evening to personally invite you to Back to School and Curriculum Night, August 25th from 5:00 until 7:00 PM. For those families that were home, we hope you enjoyed our visit as much as we did. We are all very excited for the school year to start, and our community walk is just one way for us to express that sentiment to you.
Before the Back to School/Curriculum Night begins, we would love to have you join us for the PTA meeting in the gym at 4:40 PM. The meeting will conclude in time for you to attend the first session.
As was described in the literature that you have received already and the attached flyer, the two teacher sessions for Back to School Night will be identical, and will run from 5:00 until 5:25 and 5:35 until 6:00 PM. After you have attended your session(s), please join us outside for pizza at the PTA picnic which will begin at 5:30. Students are welcome to attend the classroom sessions with their families. Back to School Curriculum Night
The first day of school is Tuesday, August 26th. Please note that we open our doors at 8:25 AM to allow students into the building. If you are driving your child to school, please note the drop-off procedures attached.Drop Off Procedures 2014
After dropping off, we strongly encourage parents to proceed all the way through Jennifer Lane and out to Larson Lane, as cars turning around in the neighborhood create a safety hazard with two-way traffic in the drop-off zone.
Our lunch periods are 11:00 until 11:45 for 1st through 3rd Grades, and 11:45 through 12:30 for 4th through 6th grades. School ends at 3:00 PM every day except Wednesdays, which end at 2:30.
District 54 will host the 10th Annual Run to Read on Sunday, September 28. All profits from this event will be used to purchase books for classroom libraries in District 54. It would be great to see Nerge families joining in the fun! To register or find out more information about Run to Read, please follow this link to the District’s website http://sd54.org/runtoread/
Please note that there is no school on Labor Day, Monday, September 1st, and we welcome our kindergarteners for their first day of school on Tuesday, September 2nd.
We are looking forward to an exciting and productive first week with your children. The staff have all been busily preparing to ensure a great start to what will most certainly be an outstanding school year!
