Hello,

I hope you all had an enjoyable Thanksgiving.

The SCA at NPES is collecting can goods and nonperishable foods. Please donate these items to help the less fortunate. The students that participate will enter a drawing to win a prize.

Homework will be assigned this week. Please check homework notebooks for the menu. Also, students should complete at least three assignments, one from each column. Remember to work on IXL and Reading Eggs. We did a great job last month. Keep up the good work!

Thank you,
