The end of a wonderful year is fast approaching!

On Tuesday, June 16, we will be holding our Kindergarten Celebration at 10:30 the morning followed by Sixth Grade Graduation that evening at 7pm. We are sending 51 Sixth Graders on to Otter Valley and will be welcoming 42 new Kindergarteners in August. Summer is a time for additional learning opportunities and adventures with families and here at school with Neshobe‘s Summer Reading and Math Camp (with Mrs.Blow and Mrs. Davis) and the S.O.A.R. Program.
Congratulations: Sharon Desforges was recognized as Neshobe’s Distinguished Educator, and Alice Sutherland was recognized as our Outstanding Support Staff at the RNESU Celebration of Contributions and Commitment for their dedication and commitment to our students and school community.
Congratulations and best wishes to Nick Montello on his retirement after 27 years teaching physical education at Neshobe School! He leaves a legacy of believing in the physical ability of every child and creating the challenges which motivated him/her to succeed and to make every day his/her best day.
Congratulations and best wishes to Cheryl Brutkoski on her retirement from RNESU after 11 years as a para educator. She leaves a legacy of caring and support to ensure the needs of the children were met.
Changes in the 2015-2016 School Year: Mrs. Knapp, Mrs. Peduto, and Mrs. Dier will be the kindergarten teaching team . Mrs. Desforges will continue as a fourth grade teacher. Mrs. Stoner will continue as a third grade teacher.
Your child’s class placement for 2015-2016 will come home on Tuesday, June 16. Students will participate in “Step Up” to meet their new teachers and to see who else will be in their classroom on Wednesday, June 17. A great deal of time and thought has gone into class placements to ensure a good placement for all children. Talk to your child about next year, and reassure him/her that all children have a mixed feeling of excitement and anxiety about moving from this year's class and starting something new.
Remember, the last day, Wednesday, June 17, is a half day with dismissal at 11:30 a.m.!!!
