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.

1, 2, 3, 4, We Declare a Penny War

As part of our Dr. Seuss themed week, we will be having Seuss-themed science activities provided by our PTO, a Read-a-thon, and a penny war from March 8 to March 12. 

Each class has its own jar, located in their classroom. You add points to your class total by adding pennies and bills to your class' jar. You lower other classes' totals by adding nickels, dines, and quarters to their jars.

You are competing against the other classes in your grade. When announced, you can only drop coins in other classroom jars. Let the fun begin!

JCSC Waiver Request Form

The JCSC waiver request form is to request that your child/children attend an elementary school within the Jennings County School Corporation other than the school that serves the attendance area of the child's legal residence. Parents or legal guardians are responsible for providing all transportation to and from school. If any effort is made to circumvent a decision when we have denied a waiver, we will return the child to enroll in their appropriate home school.

Please fill out and return the form below no later than June 1.

Important Two-Hour Delay Clarification

This clarification is for families that use the Boys and Girls Club Before School Care. This program will be open on all delay days. There was some confusion on this during our last delay day, and they closed the morning care by mistake. This program and service will still be available at normal time on all future delay days.


We have last year yearbooks for sale in the bookstore and in the main office for $15 each. You can pay with cash or checks payable to North Vernon Elementary School.

Outside Recess

It is that time of year again where the temperatures outside require a jacket. Please be sure to send your student to school with a jacket, hat, and gloves. We have outdoor recess as long as the weather permits.

Birthday Celebrations

Just a quick reminder for you. If you are wanting to bring classroom celebration goodies for your child's birthday, please check in with your student's teacher for a good day to bring those in. Also, please bring only individually wrapped, store-bought goodies. Thank you!
