Birthday Celebrations

Just a quick reminder that if your student will be celebrating a birthday and you are wanting to bring classroom celebration goodies, please check in with your students teacher for a good day to bring those in. Also, the goodies will need to be individually wrapped and store bought.

JCHS Pantherette Dance Clinic

The JCHS Dance Team is hosting a dance clinic on March 4. Registration forms are in the NVE main office. Forms and payment are due by Friday, February 17.

Change in Daily Dismissal Routine

Similar to reporting absences, you can now email one centralized place or text the school to let us know of a change in dismissal routine for your student. It is very important that you have these to us by 2:00 p.m. each day, though, as we may not be able to relay any requests after that to your student. As a reminder, all of these changes must be in writing and sent as a written note with your student, emailed to the below email address, or texted to the following phone number.

Reporting Absences

In an effort to make communication with the school easier, you can now email or text the school to report your student absent for the day. You still call the school as well, though, if you prefer. We do ask that all reporting of absences go through the main office or to the following methods - we cannot accept dojo messages sent to teachers any longer.

Please note that you should send all other general communication through the normal channels. This email and phone number are only for reporting absences and daily changes in dismissal routines.

Coaches Needed

NVE is in need of an archery coach and a robotics coach for this year. Practice times and competitions are very flexible to meet your schedule, and resources are already provided. If interested in volunteering for these clubs, please email us.
