NES To Host Homework-Free Weekend

We are very excited to share with our families and our students that NES will be hosting our first of several Homework-Free weekends. This coming weekend–also nationally known as President’s Weekend, the teaching staff at NES will announce to the students that they will not be assigning homework for the entire weekend! This is a district-wide initiative to allow for more family time and a stress-free weekend for all. We hope your family enjoys the quality family time!

Our next Homework-Free weekend will be over the Memorial Day weekend. Mark your calendars now!
