NES Recognized for Placing 1st in State of New Jersey…

The students and staff of NES were recognized this morning by representatives from Scholastics Summer Reading Challenge for our reading accomplishment. As you may know, NES placed 1st in New Jersey for reading the most minutes during the reading challenge and placed 5th in the WORLD! Scholastics provided our school with a special banner which will be displayed in our main hall leading to the cafeteria for all to see. Our top readers were part of celebration by having their name announced and picture taken.

Congratulations to our top readers…
