a fun NES tradition that the children look forward to every year.

This event is organized, coordinated, and run by parent volunteers.
Help is always needed to make this event successful!

The day starts with the Fun Run, a 1/2 mile run down Main Street and back to the school.  For more information about this exciting event, please read the Parent Information Sheet. Each child will need to submit a FUN RUN Race Registration Form and will use the NES 2016 Olympic FUN RUN Training Log to keep track of their running and/or walking outside of school time.  After the race, the Carnival begins! Every year, the parents from each classroom work together to create a fun game or activity for their child’s grade booth. With help from the PTO, the parent volunteers organize the game booth and work one hour shifts to manage the booth on the day of the Carnival.  CLICK HERE to see where help is needed and volunteer!  This family event makes for a very exciting day filled with lots of fun!
