Teacher Appreciation Week- Donate towards the Catered Lunch from Port City Sandwich Co.

Teacher Appreciation Week- Catered Lunch Donation

We are looking for donations to use towards a catered lunch for the Staff at NES during TAW. Thanks in Advance for any donations. Our Staff at NES are very deserving! 💕 Donations can be made in $5 increments. Add “more items” if you want to donate more. Any amount helps and is appreciated!


We are looking for donations toward the catered lunch from Port City Sandwich Co. We understand our families have busy lives and asking them to prepare food can sometimes add extra stress. And that certainly is not our goal. This year we hope to treat our fabulous staff members to a lunch from Porty City. We are still looking for Salads and Gift Card donations for the Teacher Raffles. There are many ways to contribute to this special week we put on for our NES staff. Check out our signup genius for more ways to help:






“Ella & the All-Stars” comes to NES on 9/27!

Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders are in for a treat on September 27.  They will spend some time with author Sherry Cerino as she reads her book, “Ella & the All-Stars”, to promote kindness, friendship, and acceptance of differences!

Families have a special opportunity to purchase their very own author-signed copy of “Ella & the All-Stars”. $3 for each book purchased will be donated back to the NES PTA.

If you are interested in ordering “Ella & the All-Stars,” visit:

Orders are due before October 12, 2018. If you would like more information about Sherry Cerino and Ella’s Way, please visit the website www.ellasway.com.
