Royalty Winner

Congratulations to our weekly ROYALTY WINNER, Isabella Murrah. Thank you Mason for choosing to follow the 25 expectations! You have a lot of fun stuff in store for you this week! We are proud of you!



P.E. Days

Parents, please make sure students remember to wear tennis shoes on days they have PE, especially on dress up days. The kids want to play, but wearing heel boots or any boots and flats can cause injuries. 



Some Clubs Starting Soon:


Girl Scouts

For over 100 years, the Girl Scout mission has been to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Girls participate in fun activities, get outdoors to learn skills, and explore the world around them. Girl Scout Troop 3005 would like to invite all girls in Kindergarten through 12th grade to join in on the fun! We meet each Wednesday at 3:45pm until 5pm in room 152 (on the middle school side). The girls must be registered through the Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle to attend the meetings. More information can be found at

MEN-tor Program

NBH MEN-tors program is designed for a dad, or father figure, to be able to come to the school and volunteer for the day. Dads will be given a schedule that will allow them to spend time in their child’s classroom and special areas, along with helping in the lunch room and monitoring hallways. MEN-tors will also be given a free t-shirt and their picture taken with their child to be put on the recognition board. This is a great opportunity to get 8 volunteer hours completed.

We are gearing up for our annual Walk-A-Thon, Oct. 17th-Oct. 26th.  This year we are using a company,, so that we can move into the digital age of online pledges and social media pledge gathering.  In a few weeks we will be sending out much more information on this.


 But in the meantime, we are working on getting our Business Sponsors.  Please see the attached Business Sponsor Form.  There is a hard deadline of Sept. 28th for the Bus.Sponsors, as we are having shirts made this year and need to have the order placed in time to receive the shirts for the FUNrun.  Please help make this event great, by being one of our Sponsors.

Box Tops

Last year we exceeded our goal for Box Tops collection. This year we have increased our goal to $1500 and I KNOW we can achieve this!!!


Please bring in your box tops in a zip lock bag labeled with your child's name and teacher. We will be doing a class competition and the class that wins will get a party!!


There will be a box in the front office of the elementary school for your box tops donations. Many of the teachers also have a box in their rooms for collections. 


I will be collecting all box tops on Friday, October 26, 2018. No collections will take place after that until the spring. Keep bringing in your box tops!!


If you have any questions, please feel free to email them to or call 850-814-1102.
