        This year, our theme is "Knights are Ready to Conquer Level 20!" We are encouraging everyone-- students, staff, families and our community-- to "level up" this year in their academics, behavior, and attendance. Students have been engaged in culture-building and team-building activities during the opening days of school to learn about their classmates and teachers and create a positive community of learners. With many of our COVID-related limitations lifted this year, we are looking forward to holding more in-person family events and activities.


        Here are a few reminders for families for the first full month of the school year:

        • In accordance with district policy, students are not allowed to have cell phones visible or in use during the day. Phones must be stored in bookbags in classroom lockers each morning. In case of emergency, please contact the main office to reach your child.

        • Don't forget, Nance is a uniform school. All students should wear a blue, white, green, or navy polo shirt and tan, black, khaki, or navy pants each day. Jeans are only allowed on Fridays.

        • School hours are 8:05 AM-3:02 PM daily. Door 6 opens at 7:50 AM each day for student arrival. Students who are picked up will be released from the gym beginning at 3 PM. Parents are asked to remain in their vehicles when dropping off and picking up students.

        Dear Parents and Families,

        It is hard to believe we are nearing the midway point of the second semester. Spring break is almost here and summer will be shortly behind. We hope you will take advantage of the many opportunities to get involved with several upcoming events scheduled at Nance this month.

        • Our Black History Month program will be held on Thursday, March 2nd at 1:00 PM! We hope to see you for this in-person program featuring our students.

        • Our annual Title 1 plan review meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 8th at 9:00 AM. Please let Ms. Green know if you are interested in participating in this meeting.

        • Mark your calendars for Parent Teacher Conferences from Tuesday, March 14th & Wednesday, March 15th from 3:15-6:30 PM! Teachers will be reaching out to you to schedule times for conferences which will be held in-person. Along with parent conferences on Tuesday, March 14th we will also host our first annual STEAM fair from 3:30-6:30 PM, and our HomeWorks! classrooms will hold parent workshops.

        • Last but not least, there is no school for Spring Break from Friday, March 17th through Friday, March 24th. School resumes on Monday, March 27th!

        In partnership,
