Week of December 3, 2017: Good afternoon Northeast Family and Friends. Here is our Northeast “Shout Out” for this first FULL week of December. The weather this past week does not seem like it is December, but we can be sure that Old Man Winter is just around the corner. With that noted please be reminded of our school delay and school closing procedures outlined in our student planners and also always posted on our district’s website. Additionally our district does utilize the call out system for all weather related delays and closings. Also with the colder weather and shorter days, please note we do not have staff here to monitor students arriving at school prior to our morning programs that do not begin until 7:30 a.m. In addition if your child is not enrolled in a before or after school program we ask that they do not arrive before the doors open at 8:05 a.m. and that they also leave the property promptly at dismissal at 3:05 p.m. There are plenty of opportunities for children to be here before and after school, however they must sign up for those opportunities and attend regularly. We make these rules for their accountability and for their safety.
School events this week include our sixth grade students cheering on the Lady Mountain Hawks of Lehigh University during their annual Education Day on Wednesday. On Friday our 8th grade students have the privilege of heading to Liberty to see the high school’s production of It’s A Wonderful Life. This trip to see the play is part of the transition process to high school for our 8th grade. Also, we celebrate the start of December with our monthly school dance on Friday. This holiday dance helps to support our Athletic Department and with the start of our winter sports competitions just around the corner, our dance could not come at a better time.
Also this week our Parent Association, NEPTO, is sponsoring another Eats Out night. This months’ venue will be held at the Kentucky Fried Chicken/Long John Silvers on Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Have a great remainder to your Sunday!
