Placement Letters

Dear Parents and Families,

The elementary schools will be mailing the summer packets including your child's teacher and classroom on Friday, August 15, 2014.  You should receive them soon after that date.  We are excited to begin the new school year and see all of you again!

Please be sure you have reserved Monday, August 25th, from 5:30 to 7:00 for the very first NSES Back to School Night.  There will be time for  you to meet the teachers, tour the school, visit important groups from the school and the community. Lastly I will   read a story and reveal our school motto!

Have a wonderful end of the summer!

Parent Survey

Dear Parents,

As you know, we've implemented a new Math Curriculum this year! We've worked hard to provide parents and students with information to help them in their math education. We would like to ask you about your awareness of our Math Curriculum initiative and Math Unit Guide initiative. Please take a moment to complete this online survey. We appreciate your feedback in order to help your students!! Thank you!!!

Parent Teacher Conferences and School Report Night

Our annual Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, December 4th (A-K) and Thursday, December 11th (L-Z) at NSES.  The hours are 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM.  We hope to see you there!  Be certain to have made appointments with the teachers you want to see.  Our specialist teachers will also be available those nights to meet with you. 

School Report Night will be held on these evenings, too.  In the foyer will be a display of NECAP results from the last school year and writing samples from each grade level.  You will have the opportunity to view the test results from the district and the state on the charts that will be in the school foyer. 

Should you have any questions, please contact me at North Smithfield Elementary School, 765-2260.
