Home of the Knights!

Important information regarding student hand-prints!

It's hard to believe that we in are in our ninth year of operation as a school.  Time has flown by.  Since it's been nine years, it's been brought to my attention that we are now on the schedule to receive a new coat of paint on the hallway walls.  The good news is that our walls will look much better.  The bad news is that all of our hand-prints will be painted over.  If your child has a hand-print and you would like to see it before it’s painted, please come by the building between now and next Friday (May 7th).  We are going to capture the hand-prints digitally before they are painted over, so we can always have them as a memory.  If you had the hand-print done over the last two years (2013 - present) and your child will still be in attendance at NHE in the fall, we will recreate the hand-print when we return in August.
