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.

Social Media - A Message from Mr. Hill

As we get into warmer weather, historically, we have seen more conflict arising from social media outside of school that then comes into the classroom. This holds especially true with our sixth-grade students. We encourage you to monitor your student's social media accounts and talk with them about responsible use and how to be a positive digital citizen. Doing so can help them be more focused at school and be a more positive and less stressed child. Please let our counseling office know if you need any resources to help with this.

Birthday Celebrations

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

Field Day 2022

North Vernon Elementary has scheduled field day for Friday, May 20, and would love to have your help in running stations. We would ask you to arrive at 9:45 a.m. that morning, and you will finish at 2:15 p.m. If you would like to volunteer, you must have a background check turned into the office by May 1. Please send a note to school with your child or contact Dea Jones at (812) 346-4903, and we will send a background check application home with them. We hope to see you here on May 20!

Custodian Position Available

Bus Policy Update

Students are not currently allowed to ride the school bus with a friend after school. This is a measure that is being taken to keep bus spacing and prevent the spread of COVID-19. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Coaches Needed

North Vernon Elementary is in need of an archery coach and a robotics coach for next year. Please email if interested. 

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 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! 

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! The only thing that would cost money is if your student gets an extra milk for $0.50 each.
