Welcome Back Nestle Neutrons!! This is Ms Gray, principal of Nestle. I hope you all had an enjoyable summer break. The Nestle staff is hard at work preparing for your return. Every teacher has come back early to prepare their classrooms for the 2017-2018 school year. Many of them have been here for the past 2 weeks getting ready. Teacher’s first day back is Monday, August 14th. Students return to school next Tuesday August 15th. Don’t forger the first day of school is early dismissal Tuesday at 1:38. Gats open at 7:45am. The first bell rings at 8:10 and the 2nd bell rings at 8:15am. Please come to school by 8:15. Grade 1-5 students will line up by their classroom numbers in the basketball area. Class assignments for grades 1-5 are available. You may call the office between 7:30-4:30 to find out your assignment. The class assignments are also going to be posted on the front of the school wall Monday morning. Kinders are being assessed this week and the teachers and I will meet to determine assignments tomorrow,in the late afternoon. Kinder parents may call on Monday or stop by the school and see their assignments posted on the front of the school wall. Kinders and their parents will meet in the auditorium Tuesday morning at 8:15 to meet their teacher, line up and walk to their classes. Kinder parents, we will meet in the parent center for refreshments, conversation and tissues after your child leaves the auditorium to start their kindergarten adventure. For the first week only, school campus will be open. Parents are welcome on campus, please begin to depart after the 8:15 bell. We do have some new teachers this year. Please give a warm Nestle welcome to our new teachers at 5th grade, Mrs Seaton-Cloward and 4th grade, Mrs Eckerling. Nestle is indeed fortunate to add these outstanding and experienced teachers to our staff. As you know, Mrs Sears retired and Ms Fischer found a job closer to home. We will miss them, but we know it was necessary for their happiness and well-being. We wish them well. I will be calling again Sunday night and Monday night with reminders and more information about our upcoming school year. Again, welcome back very soon and enjoy the last few days of your summer break.
