Newell Elementary Weekly News February 17 through February 21, 2020

Newell Families,

Thanks to the Newell PTA and Active Family Chiropractic for providing meals and desserts last week for our staff! 

Thanks to our Building Wellness Reps Heather Glause and Megan Barnett  for keeping both our students and staff active and healthy and helping us partner with the UNL Extension!!! Because of their hard work, Newell Elementary School has been awarded a 2020 Nebraska Healthy Schools Silver award. Mrs. Glause and Mrs. Barnett will attend the Nebraska Healthy Schools Recognition and Education Conference in March where they will accept their award and be recognized for their exemplary efforts! 

Online registration for the 2020-21 school year is currently open. Thank you to the almost 20% of our families who have already registered for the 2020-2021 school year!  EVERY student must be registered for next year and registration is done through your ParentVUE account. If you need help please call or visit the school office. Please complete your child’s registration as soon as possible. 

Please check our Newell Peachjar regularly, or better yet sign-up to receive notifications. Peachjar is also available as part of our GIPS district smartphone app. To download the app search for Grand Island PS in your app store.
