Here’s your chance to see your child’s classroom assignment, check out after-school enrichment programs, find out how you can volunteer, turn in your Annual Giving Forms (coming in the mail soon) and PiE contributions, join the PTA, purchase some Nixon apparel, and check out what’s new on campus. Lots of fun for everyone! See you there!

Nixon Ice Skating Night, Feb 24th, 5:30-7:30 pm

Come have fun with us, during the annual Nixon Ice Skating Night at Winter Lodge!

Since this popular event is on a Saturday this year, it may sell out.  Pre-purchasing tickets is recommended to ensure your child’s spot.

Click to connect to Nixon’s Spirit Shop for purchase:

Tickets ($22 pre-purchase, $25 at the door) already include ice skate rental, and are non-refundable. All children must be with an adult, but only those on the ice require a ticket. Spectators are free!

Please, to save you time:

  • Fill out the required waiver before arrival (look for it in Feb. 16th’s Friday folder). The waiver must be done by the parent/guardian!
    So, if someone besides a parent/guardian is taking your child to the event, you must fill out the waiver in advance for them to be able to skate.
  • Bring the completed WAIVER AND A PRINTOUT of your ONLINE TICKET RECEIPT for quicker entry. If you’re unable to purchase online, bring a check to school and fill out a sign-up sheet, available now at Becky’s desk. Turn in the completed sheet, waiver, and check to Becky.

⛑Remember, the ice is hard, and your child’s brain is soft. Bike helmets strongly recommended!

Come have a 🍕 pizza 🍕 dinner and a blast with your friends. See you on the 24th!
