Northeastern Elementary School is partnering with the Richmond RiverRats Baseball Organization to recognize students with "Outstanding Attendance" for the fourth nine weeks of school.
Each student that has had less than 1.5 absences and 1 tardy is receiving a Voucher for two tickets (printed below) to attend a Richmond RiverRats baseball game. We encourage students to use their voucher to attend the game on Friday, June 14th. Game time is 7:05 p.m. At this game, students will be recognized on the field between the 2nd and 3rd innings. Fireworks will follow the game. We hope to have a great turnout of Northeastern students, families, and staff. If your child cannot attend the game on June 14th, the ticket voucher can be redeemed at any game during the 2013 season.

About Our School
Dig Into Reading!
Welcome to Northeastern Elementary School!
It is with a great sense of enthusiasm that the faculty, staff, and administration welcome you and your child to Northeastern Elementary for the 2012 - 2013 school year! We believe that our students are in store for a wonderful year of excitement, opportunities, and growth. We are thrilled to have each one of you as a part of our NES family.
Academic achievement by all of our students is our number one priority. We have made several significant changes in our approach to delivering instruction and how to prepare for instruction on a routine basis. Everyone at Northeastern Elementary believes that all students can achieve. We are committed to the ideal that all members of our school community learn and grow every day. . . that we are never finished learning!
We need your help! You, as the parent, play a pivotal role in our partnership to educate your child. We need you to insist that your child attend school every day, that they do their homework and study, and that they give their absolute best effort every day. We need for you to ask us quesitons and to be involved in our school. You and your child are on the same educational journey. Be an active participant along the ride so that the journey is as wonderful as we all hope it will be for your child.
Have a wonderful year at Northeastern Elementary!
Northeastern Elementary students, staff, families, and community: Working together to build a better tomorrow.
All kids can learn, and we will establish high standards of learning that we expect all students to achieve. We believe all students can and must learn at relatively high levels of achievement. It is our job to create an environment in our classrooms that results in this high level of performance. We are confident that with our support and help, students can master challenging academic material at their individual levels, and we expect them to do so. We are prepared to work collaboratively with colleagues, students, families, and community members to achieve this shared educational purpose.
Northeastern Elementary School is located in the northeast sector of Wayne County in Indiana, five miles north of Richmond. It is an agricultural area comprised of five small communities--Fountain City, Williamsburg, Whitewater, Bethel, and Webster--with approximately 5,800 total residents. The school enrolls 575 students from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 6. Average class size at Northeastern Elementary is 23 students per classroom teacher.
School achievement is supported by the following certified staff: 2 administrators, 24 general education teachers, 5 special area teachers, 4 special needs teachers, 2 Reading Recovery teachers, and 1 school psychologist. The support staff includes 14 teaching assistants (3 designated as special education aids), 2 remediation aids, 1 secretary, 1 treasurer, 1 social worker, 1 nurse (shared with the high school), 3 custodians, 9 cafeteria workers, and 20 bus drivers.
Northeastern Elementary provides Music, Art, Computer, Physical Education, and Media to students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Band is provided for interested fifth and sixth grade students. Northeastern Elementary also provides a gifted/talented program for qualified students. Enrichment activities are coordinated with the classroom teacher through a part-time certified instructor.
Provisions are made for students who experience difficulty in reading through participation in the Title 1 program and Response to Intervention. Two Reading Recovery teachers address the needs of the lowest achieving first graders. All first grade students receive listening skills instruction formatted around reading and math concepts.
Student growth is formally reported to parents each nine weeks. Progress reports are sent at the mid-point of each grading period. Parent/teacher conferences may be scheduled upon request by either parents or teachers at any time.
We invite you to join our annual summer reading program!
We are aware that summer is a busy time and families may not be able to visit the LMC. However, we are encouraging every student to set a summer reading goal. Please assist your student(s) in selecting the goal that they are most likely to reach. Students may visit our LMC, visit other libraries, read from their own collections, opt to read an eBook, or learn to look for unexpected reading opportunities in an effort to Dig Into Reading and meet their goal.
Students will have two options. They may choose to take advantage of any reading opportunity and record at least 15 minutes of reading for five days out of every week of the summer, or they can choose to meet the age appropriate book totals that we have selected for them. A reading goal of 10 books is recommended for students entering kindergarten through third grade. A reading goal of 5 books is recommended for students entering fourth grade through sixth grade. Students will be required to log their books, or minutes, at home throughout the summer. Reading/Time logs will be provided. A Tic-Tac-Toe Activity Sheet is also being provided.
The Library Media Center will be open from 9:00-11:00 on the following dates in June.
June 4th, 6th, 11th, 13th, 20th, and 27th.
The limit will be 10 books per student each week. Students must be accompanied by an adult. ALL BOOKS will need to be returned by June 27th.
All completed reading logs and Tic-Tac-Toe cards will need to be turned in during Registration or by each student’s first LMC visit of the new school year. X and O squares on the Summer Tic-Tac-Toe cards must be initialed by an adult in order to be accepted for a prize.
A special celebration will be held for those students who reach their reading goals.
Please contact Mrs. Pentecost at 847-2595 ext. 829 if you have any questions. We hope to see you this summer!
