We are gearing up for a wonderful 2018-2019 school year at NPE!

We have the most friendly, fun-loving, kind, hard-working students in the nation at NPE. They truly inspire me each and every day to do my best as the leader of the building and to reach out to help those in need.

NPE is continuing to lead the charge in innovation! We continue to be a recognized school for our Digital Citizenship, we will continue our eLearning Days, and we use technology every day as a tool to help us learn!  Last year we even got to investigate Google Expedition, and staff from Google actually came to NPE!

There are many special traditions at NPE! You will love being a part of the annual Halloween parade. This event evokes a ton of school pride! Another great tradition is all of the special days held at each grade level. Christmas Around the World, Fiesta Day, Famous Hoosier Day, and countless others teach us a great deal about our subjects while bringing learning to life. When you can see and touch and taste learning, you remember it for a lifetime!

I will never forget the 2018 NPE school carnival!  My favorite part was the jousting arena in the gym!  Many brave teachers and two crazy principals jousted continuously by eager students all for a good cause.  The 2019 Carnival is sure to be a great time of fun and fellowship!

Something that strikes me about the NPE staff and students is their servant hearts. NPE is a Riley Children's Hospital Red Wagon School, meaning that we raised more than $1 from each NPE student during this school year. We supported many other charities including the Hancock County Food Pantry, local families in need, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and many more. Our students were taught by their wonderful parents that when you give, you find true happiness.

The NPE staff and students want to thank our very strong and giving Parent Teacher Organization for the support they give our school.  It is amazing to us how many projects are possible only with your fundraising and hard work. The PTO makes a difference for us by keeping morale high among students and staff.  Our annual class parties, ice cream treats, and the treat cart that visits the staff always put a smile on our faces.  You
make NPE such a positive place to learn and work!

We have a bright future at NPE!  Each year will bring more innovative ideas to increase student achievement and we will strive to keep our students at the top of the digital conversion.  In the midst of all of this, we will continue to remember that people are #1.  Every decision we make is a reflection of our #1 priority- your children!  Come join us in being #newpalproud!!
