Welcome to Northeast !!!    

What a cold winter!  Please make sure that your child has a coat, hat and mittens/gloves on when she comes to school.  If a child is not adequately covered for the cold weather, he or she will not go outside for recess.


A safety reminder for all who use “Kiss and Ride:” Please make sure to take the first left turn out of the driveway after dropping off your child(ren). Please DO not drive straight to watch your child walk into the building. This action puts others at risk! I am aware of several people who continue to do this and who are not really watching the road. Along those same lines – I am encouraging you to NOT be on the phone when dropping off or picking up. Not only is distracted driving a safety hazard – but this is precious time for you to connect with your child!


Thanks to all the staff and parents who have supported our fall Northeast Walks! program.  Our walking continues this winter with monthly themed walks – we have a Sweet Stroll planned for February 25th.  There are walks also scheduled on March 18th (March Madness March) and April 15th  (Spring Steps).  Remember, making sure that our children are active now will lead to life long good habits when it comes to physical activity.  Some facts to consider about being active:

·         Health status is influenced 40% by lifestyle and behavior choices. Individuals have the power to make good choices.

·         Walking is a no-cost activity for families, neighbors, businesses and schools.

·         Physically active youth are more likely to grow into physically active adults.

·         Physical activity reduces the likelihood of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and stroke.

·         Walking is a multi-generational, multi-cultural activity.


We hope that you are taking advantage of the cold, inside time to read to and with your child(ren). The Children’s Reading Foundation says, “Just 20 minutes a day reading aloud with young children strengthens relationships, encourages listening and language skills, promotes attention and curiosity, and establishes a strong reading foundation. These skills are essential for success in school and in life.” Find out more at: http://www.readingfoundation.org/more.jsp.


Enjoy your February vacation!  

I would like to remind you of the following upcoming events and important information:


  1. We have two early release days this month:  teacher professional development on Friday December 5th and parent conferences on Tuesday, December 9th.
  2. Our Winter Concert will be on Tuesday, December 16th at 10:00 a.m.  For safety reasons, there will be no parking allowed in any fire lane around the perimeter of the school.  Please do not arrive to the school until 9:30 a.m.  We need to make sure that all of our pre-K children arrive safely.  Additionally, we need to have time to set up the cafeteria for the concert.  Please make sure that you are seated on a chair in the cafeteria, and not along the ramp or the back.  We are excited that so many of you will be joining us!  We just want to make sure that the set-up is safe for all of us.
  3. Please be sure to check the Lost and Found table at the concert.  We have accumulated a large collection of hats, sweaters, sweat shirts and lunch boxes.
  4. Our December Walking Wednesday will be the 17th – weather permitting.  All walkers will be treated to hot chocolate upon arrival to the school. If you have given permission for walking, your child is all set. If not, please send a note or email to me.
  5. If we need to dismiss children early from school for bad weather we will use the EdConnect (Reverse 911) system.  Please make sure we have your most up-to-date phone number so you can get that information readily
  6. Our last day of school before the December Vacation is Tuesday, December 23rd.  We return to school on Monday, January 5th.
  7. It is getting chilly out and I want to remind you to make sure that your child(ren) is(are) wearing a warm coat; a hat, earmuffs or a scarf; and mittens or gloves every day to school.  I have noticed that not all of our students are coming in dressed for the weather.  In this season of sickness, it is essential that we try to prevent all that we can.  Students without proper outer gear will not be able to go outside for recess.  Please let us know if you need assistance with this.
  8. Wondering what to do with the money that your child received as a gift this holiday season?  How about opening a savings account with RTN Credit Union?  The RTN Federal Credit Union brought the Cents-ible Savers Club to Northeast Elementary School several years ago.  Many of our students have opened accounts.  Please note that your child can begin an account with RTN anytime.  They will be here on January 12th and January 26th.

Have a safe and happy holiday season!
