ND to offer driver's ed class

(Continued)

ELNORA —

The fundraiser was Feb. 4-8. The elementary principal said first semester incentive celebrations were recently held for students who showed growth from pre- to post-test.

Upcoming activities at the elementary school include the kindergarten and third-grade musical at 6:30 p.m., Feb. 21, at the NDE gym; Title I Bingo for Books, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., March 20, in the NDE cafeteria; and the second- and fifth-grade musical at 6:30 p.m. March 21 in the NDE gym.

Read Across America will be March 1, when students will wear red, white and blue and bring their favorite book to school. Volunteer readers are needed, and anyone wishing to volunteer can contact Mrs. Gainey at awgainey@ndaviess.k12.in.us or 636-8000, ext. 3132.

“At last count, we were already in the 70s for kids signed up for kindergarten roundup,” Berry told the board. “We usually have 80-some.”

ND kindergarten roundup for 2013-2014 will begin Feb. 25 and run through March 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. Any child who will be 5 years old before Aug. 1, 2013, is eligible to attend kindergarten in the upcoming school year. To register, parents can call 636-8000, ext. 2000.
