Week of September 3, 2017: Good afternoon Northeast Family and Friends. We start our Northeast “Sunday Shout” with the hope that everyone is enjoying this three-day weekend thus far and all our students are looking forward to returning back to school Tuesday morning. Our first week of school went forth without a hitch. We are always a bit nervous starting school, as we want all of our children to be assigned correctly to their teams and to their classes. With that being stated please know we do our best to place children into classes where students are challenged and also where children have the best opportunity to be successful. If you have questions regarding your child’s placement please reach out to your child’s guidance counselor.
This week we will be running a “normal” school bell schedule as we help our children adjust to the expectations we have for all of our classes. Our enrollment this year is just under 800 students, however we are still booked through next week with children enrolling new to our school. Having this many children makes for some challenges especially regarding arrival and dismissal. If you do transport your child to school or pick your child up after school please be careful and patient. We want to do everything possible to keep our children safe, and sometimes it is our impatience that can threaten our children’s safety.
This week we begin enrolling our children into after school activities and clubs. Most of our activities and clubs will begin the last week of September. Parents will be exposed to more information regarding our “extra-curricular” activities this week at our Open House. Open House is this coming Thursday, September 7th. It starts with a large introduction in the auditorium at 6:30 p.m. Please come out and be introduced to your child’s teachers and hear from them all the great things your child will be doing this year.
Lastly this week we get into full swing with all of our fall sports. Our field hockey team plays on Thursday against Whitehall at home. Our volleyball team also starts play this week at Nazareth on Friday. Cross Country starts out its season on Thursday with a meet at Freedom, and finally our football team starts on the road Saturday against Nazareth. We wish all of our fall athletes the best as they begin the regular season.
Our NEPTO organization is in the midst of preparing for our first dance on September 15th, as well as our first eats out night on September 12th, 13th and 14th at Martellucci’s. Don’t forget, to mark your calendars for a night off from cooking and come out and support NEPTO. Also our first fundraiser will be kicking off Sept 8-22 Enjoy the city coupon books. Next PTO meeting is Sept 20 6pm.
Have a great rest of you long weekend.
