Dear Neeskara Families:
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I hope all of you had a pleasant summer vacation. We are thrilled to welcome all of you back to a new school year of learning and growing.
Personally, I am excited and grateful to continue this journey with you as your principal. With the retirement of four teachers, our new staff members are eager to meet and work with all of you. At Neeskara Elementary School, we will continue our commitment to building strong relationships with our parents and communicating clearly and consistently. This year we will focus on creating a positive learning environment, where parents can assist us with the learning of your children. It takes a strong commitment from everyone involved to see and enjoy the positive outcomes we expect from our students.
Our Back to School Open House will be held on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 from 5:00 – 7:30 PM. We want to officially welcome all parents and students to this event. This will be an opportunity to meet our staff, visit classrooms, and meet the building principal. The First Day of School is Tuesday, September 3, 2019.
School Hours: 7:35 a.m. – 2:20 p.m.
In the interest of safety, please do not drop off students before 7:20 AM, unless they are enrolled in our before school camp program. There will be no supervision on the playground before that time. Please be sure to pick up your children by 2:20 PM, unless they are enrolled in our after-school camp program.
Our school day begins at 7:35 AM every day. Please makes sure your child/children are here on time. Students who are consistently tardy are at a clear disadvantage, which can affect the rest of their school day.
We are encouraging you to visit our school or call (414) 256-8600 to schedule a visit, ask questions or take a tour of our school.
