Outdoor Recess Continues
The snow has begun to fall, and it is time to remember to send your child to school with a warm coat, hats, gloves, and boots when appropriate. When the wind chill is around 20 degrees or higher at 11:00, our students will have outdoor recess. All children are expected to go to recess, unless they have a medical reason that is preventing them from going outdoors. Recess is an important time of the day for students to have a free play break from the work of school as well as a chance for fresh air.
Grade 3 – Blanket Night
On Wednesday, January 23, at 6:30 p.m., we are having a grade 3 family night where we will make the No Sew Fleece Blankets. All blankets made will go to a local shelter to be given to children that are in a crisis situation. Please come out and join us this evening for a very special project.
School fees are past due. If you need to set up a payment plan, please contact the office. Student fees for each grade level are as follows:

Upstander Classroom Meetings
Be sure to be watching for the blue Upstander stamp, and ask your child about their class meeting. Each time there is a class meeting, your students will have a blue stamp on his or her hand when they come home that day. Please make sure to ask your child what they learned at his or her classroom meeting today.
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.
Please sign in as a visitor and return to the office after lunch to sign out. Parents may not stay for recess.
No selfies or picture taking please.
If you and your child would like a friend from the same grade level to sit with you, please feel free to have them join you. Please limit it to just one extra student.
No outside fast-food please.
