Read A-Thon Online Awards Store

The Read A-Thon is over…. Although donations can still be accepted for the next week! The children did such an AMAZING job reading and getting donations to support their school, so proud of them all!!

At this point your child/children will have access to their Read A-Thon online awards store to use their “bucks” to spend. The latest to put your order in will be 11/25. After that, the prizes will be shipped to the school and delivered to each child in their class.

Officially we have raised $30,238.69 and the students read 64,612 minutes! Such an accomplishment, shine bright Northeast Stars!


Parent Leadership Training Institute

Parent leadership training teaches parents how to be effective in the community and at the schools. Each leader will be mentored to develop a project through the experience. They will learn levels of government and what parts of government can assist in helping your community project. Ideas in the past were sensory pathways, gardens, pamphlets for PPT meetings, and student cooking class.

They will assist you to be effective in your communication of ideas. Previous graduates have used the network to be elected into school board positions.

This is how you make the difference for your children and your community.

Anyone accepted into the program can have their child be apart of the children’s leadership training. Children will learn about government and about what they are most passionate.

Come see what this life changing experience is all about!


Native American History Month

Northeast Elementary’s Cultural Wall is celebrating Native American History Month during the month of November. Did you know…

Code talkers were Native Americans who were enlisted in the army in WW2 to help relay mission messages using the native Navajo language. The code was never broken by the Japanese.
