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.

Boys & Girls Club Fall Break

We sent a flyer home with your child about the fall break program the Boys & Girls Club is offering. Boys & Girls Club will be open fall break, October 11 through 15. Club hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The location is at NVE and costs $35 for the week or $10 per day. Your child will need to bring lunch and a water bottle. Email Tabitha Shepard to sign up.

Jennings County Middle School Archery

Calling all sixth, seventh, and eighth grade archers. Sign-ups will be at the Jennings County Public Library on October 20, 2021. The meeting will be from 7:30 to 8:00 p.m. and will meet in conference room one.

Forms will be available for archers in the sixth through eighth grades who want to try out for the middle school archery team. This year, our practices will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Sand Creek Elementary from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. or 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

NVE Staff Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Parents and students, we need your help. The staff members of NVE have decorated pumpkins and cannot agree on which one is the best. At parent/teacher conferences you can help decide. Bring some spare change and drop it into the can next to your favorite. All of the money raised will support NVE students.

Free Breakfast and Lunch

JCSC has the opportunity to offer free breakfast and free lunch to all students again this year. Please take advantage of this exciting and nutritional service! If desired, your student may purchase an extra milk for $0.50 each.

Fifth Grade Boys Basketball Coach Needed

NVE is looking for a fifth grade boys basketball coach for this upcoming basketball season. If you are interested in coaching, please call Nick Hill at (812) 346-4903 for details and to volunteer.

Box Tops for Education

We would like to invite you to help raise money for your school! All you have to do is scan your receipts after shopping.  Please see our box tops fundraising flyer for more information. Thank you to our NVE PTO for creating another way for us to support our students!

Water Bottles

Students are allowed 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.

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 the 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!
