NVES News

Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout outs. Please check in often and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Bookstore

Our school bookstore is now closed for the remainder of the year. If a student is in need of any supply, please contact the Student Service Center and we will help get the items. 

Sports Physicals

Ascension Medical Group is offering sports physicals now. Schedule your child's physical online. These are free as part of the annual wellness exam or $25 for sports physical only. Walk in available from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Mondays. For more information call (812) 352-4300.

Reading Rocks

Our NVE Spring Title event looks a little different this year but it promises to be a ton of fun! Our students have painted rocks to look like their favorite book character or with a reading message to promote the love of reading! 

For more information, please see our reading rocks flyer in its entirety.

Title 1 Literacy Tip of the Week

Leave notes for your child in his/her lunch box or school bag. Leave notes for him/her around the house. Ask your child to leave notes for you.

Car Pick Up Safety

As you wait in line to drop off or pick up students at NVE, please make sure that you are staying on the correct side of the road. Even though it may be tempting to jump in line by driving on the opposite side of the road to get into our parking lot, this creates a very dangerous situation for oncoming traffic on such a narrow road. Please model patience, grace, and safety for our students as you drop off and pick up your student. We appreciate your help in making NVE a safer place!

NVE Field Day Volunteers Needed On May 21

We are looking forward to having a field day this year and for it to go smoothly we are asking for some volunteers. Much of the volunteer's duties will be outside. We require that volunteers complete a background check before anyone can volunteer at JCS schools. If you would like to volunteer this year we would really appreciate it. Please stop by the office for a background check form or request one that we will send home with your child. The deadline to sign up to volunteer is Wednesday, May 5.

Water Bottles

Students are able to have and should have a water bottle during the school day. Proper hydration is crucial to students being able to focus and learn, and this year, with the water fountains not usable, our bottle fillers are the only source of water for students. We give students a disposable cup if they forgot their water bottle, but please make sure your student has a water bottle to use at school regularly. This will help with healthy learning habits.

Fifth and Sixth-Grade Spring Programs

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming fifth and sixth-grade spring programs. The spring programs will be in the Jennings County High School Auditorium. We have a limited number of tickets available to each family. Please stay tuned as we will have more info to come.
