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.

Letter From the Superintendent

At Jennings County School Corporation, there is nothing we take more seriously than the safety of our students. In the past week, some students and members of the public have raised concerns about one or more incidents regarding school safety. Federal privacy laws prohibit us from sharing information regarding any specific student or incident. Please remember that postings on social media and shared information are based on gossip, not facts.

Please take a moment to read the important letter from Superintendent Teresa A. Brown in its entirety.

Come in to see all the amazing books and other goodies during our book fair. Our book fair is from November 4 until November 8. We will be open from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m. on November 7. We appreciate your support!

Cards for a Cause Fundraiser

Help support North Valley Elementary School's music program with our Cards for a Cause fundraiser. We will be purchasing new instruments and resources for every grade to use for many years to come. We are selling boxes of greeting cards that are $30.00 for a box of 30 cards. They are beautiful, individually packaged, 3D cards with a decorated envelope. These save you money, time, and they make great gifts. Our goal is that every student sells two boxes. We will be selling them from October 4 through October 22. Please make checks payable to NVE.

Thank you for your continued support for the arts and for NVE!

Fall Break

Jennings County School Corporation schools will be on fall break from Monday, October 14 through Friday, October 18. Have a safe and wonderful break!

Panther Pride

As a reminder, the tickets we award are for showing Panther pride. We may award tickets for specific incidents of kindness, helpfulness, or improvement. We hold drawings weekly with a winner from each grade. Keep up the great work!

Water Challenge

North Vernon Elementary's P.E. program is challenging students to participate in a variety of activities throughout the year to improve their health goals. This is totally voluntary, so students who choose to participate will have to keep track of their goal sheets throughout the contests. Students who participate in all four of the challenges will get to participate in the extra activity at the end of the year in addition to the reward activity associated with each challenge.
