Fall weather is finally within our grasp! Did I just hear cheering from the other side of this computer?
Tuesday, October 8th Chick-fil-a Spirit night 5:00 - 7:00
Field Trip to the Art Barn is October 17th - If you haven't sent in your permission slip and money, please do this as soon as possible. Please make sure your child dresses for that day's weather and have them wear sneakers (tennis shoes). For the lunches you send in, please put them into a brown paper bag that can be thrown away after lunch is over and only send in water bottles that can be thrown away as well.
Parents, we have recently partnered with an organization called Super Authors that allows each student to publish their very own book! Each child will be working with their teacher on publishing a book titled “My Favorite Things about Kindergarten”. We will then host an Author Celebration and Book Signing on Dec. 16th from 8:15-9am. You can purchase a paperback version for $15 or a hardcover for $20 and a portion of the proceeds will go back to New Prospect!
We wanted each child to see how they can be a published author with perseverance and hard work! These books will be a great keepsake for you and your family to remember this time in their lives, as well as gifts during the holiday season. If you would like to order your child’s book an order form will go home on Monday and you can place the order until Nov. 1st. At any time after Nov. 1st you can go back and order more copies of the book, but in order for it to be at the school for the Author celebration it must be ordered before Nov. 1st.
Below is are two links where you can see the end product! We are very excited about this opportunity for our students to shine as authors!
I promise, the first day of fall really was Monday the 23rd! I know that it still feels like summer.
Spirit Night @ Chick-fil-A October 8th!
Field Trip Permission slips are due now along with the payment of 26.00! Please send in your child's lunch choice form as well.
Field Trip to the Art Barn is October 17th! Let's hope for cooler weather. :-)
**Remember your parent teacher conferences!
Oh my! I think Autumn is finally trying to break through. :-)
Tonight is Pop, Pizza and Hoops here at NPE! Join us from 6:00 - 7:30
~ October 17th is our Field Trip to the Art Barn. Please return permission slips with money and the student's lunch choice form.
We need chaperones for our field trip!
Please make sure you are signed up to be a volunteer. www.fultonschools.org
Wasn't that full moon beautiful this morning? I know it doesn't feel like it but I promise, Autumn is coming.
September 20th is Pops, Pizzas and hoops! Here at the school and it's all free! Come in and enjoy some food and fun.
Assessments and other graded papers will be coming home soon and we will need for them to be signed and returned. Also keep sending back the folders daily!
If you haven't sent in a change of clothes for your child, please do that this week. Sometimes when playing on the playground, they get wet or in lunch they have a spill and it's nice to let them change into dry clothes if possible.
Have a great weekend! I hear it's going to be a few degrees cooler! :-)
I am wondering, are you all just trying to stay cool?
Are you looking forward to cooler weather and less humidity? Well...
The forecast looks like it will continue to be hot and humid. :(
Reminder about snacks ~ Please only send in a small snack for your child. We only have time for a 5 to 10 minute snack. We also ask that you send in healthy snacks for your child along with water. Please make sure the water bottles you send with your child are not made of glass. Thank you!
Thursday, September 11th ~ Picture Day ~Put that date on your calendar so that you are ready to dress your child for their kindergarten picture! Nothing like getting your child's proofs back and not realizing they had pictures that day! LOL Once pictures are taken, you will be able to place your order and pay for them online.
~~Here is the link to place your order! It doesn't get easier than that! Well, I guess the photographer coming to your house, taking the child's picture, printing them out there at your house and handing them to you would actually be easier but we know that is not going to happen. :-)
Friday, September 20th from 6:00 to 7:30 is Pops, Pizza and Hoops night! Mark your calendars now! Meet us in the Gym for an hour and a half of crazy fun. This a free event but please RSVP so they have enough pizza and drinks!
If you want to volunteer for field trips or classroom parties, please go to

Oh my! It's too hot outside. These little ones don't seem to mind it though! Since it is so hot, make sure your child is dressed in cooler clothing for recess. Some of the rooms are a bit chilly so you may want to send a sweater or a light weight jacket for them to wear at different times during the day. The lunchroom is sometimes called the Arctic. Brrrrr!
Tonight is Spirit night at Andy's Frozen Custard in Alpharetta on Old Milton Parkway. It is from 5:00 to 9:00~
Come out and support the New Prospect Panthers. If you have never tried Frozen custard, it's way more delicious than ice cream AND way creamier! If you have had frozen custard but never from Andy's, you need to join us tonight! They have the absolute best frozen custard known to man! Come show your support and visit with the Panther family!
Remember to put an extra pair of clothes in your child's book bag. We have limited resources in our clinic at this time. If you would like to donate some clothing, that would be great!
If your child needs medication at the school, please make sure to have the proper forms completed and turned into the clinic. You can find the forms on Fultonschools.org - Departments - Student Health Services - Parent Resources. You will need to have the "Authorization to give Medication Form" completed.
If your child has any specific health care concerns, please contact our Cluster Nurse, TracyLynn Wagner at 404-401-5546.
Have a great weekend!
