All students who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of 2018 need to complete a kindergarten readiness screening. Screening for NN students will be on Tuesday, April 3. Please call the office to register your child for an appointment time at 330.875.2661.
Please stop in at either North Nim or Louisville Elementary to register your child for kindergarten. Children who will turn 5 on or before August 1, 2018 are eligible to enroll in kindergarten.
Parents registering their children must bring the following: birth certificate, immunization record, child’s Social Security card, two current proofs of residency and custody paper (if applicable). The state of Ohio requires all children entering kindergarten have the following immunizations: five doses DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus), four polio, three Hepatitis B, two MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and two doses of varicella (chickenpox) before the start of school.
Invent the future today! Camp Invention’s all-new summer program, Fast Forward, allows children in grades K-6 to turn their wildest dreams into a reality. Campers will create a vehicle of the future, design a mechanical robot dog, build futuristic dream homes, and make dinos dance using wind-up gearboxes! Local educators lead the week of fun, hands-on, STEM activities that encourage children to think big, explore their curiosity, and never give up. Visit campinvention.org or call 800.968.4332 to register.

Outdoor Recess Continues

All children are expected to go to recess, unless they have a medical reason that is preventing them from going outdoors.
