We're Back!!!

It has been wonderful to be back at school with ALL of our teachers and most of our students. Those of you reading this who haven't been able to return, know we miss you and look forward to your return! Everyone - know you are in our prayers. Let us know how we can help you! We have a donation center set up in the Media Center so if you have needs please take advantage of it!




Just a reminder from Mr. McLaughlin's facebook posts - Our calendar WILL NOT change between now and our return from Christmas Break. If we need to make up any hurricane days, we will do so after the new year. We will keep you posted regarding any calendar changes. Many events are being cancelled so keep you eyes on the calendar and watch for FaceBook posts.




This Friday is a Spirit Day and Snocones will be for sale for $1.00. 



Thanksgiving Break

We will be closed for Thanksgiving Break from Nov. 19th - Nov. 23rd. We will return to school on November 26th.



Lost and Found

Parents, remember to put your child's FIRST AND LAST NAME on all of their school "stuff". We will immediately return any item found with a student's name on it. Items found that we can't identify will be kept for 1 week and then donated to appropriate agencies.




Yearbook sales are entirely online this year.  You can access the yearbook sales site at  All three levels can be found at For elementary, search for North Bay Haven Chtr Acad Elem.



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. 





As you know, our uniform requirement has been waived because so many of our students have lost them in the hurricane.  BUT.....if your child didn't lose their uniforms in the hurricane, please make sure they are in uniform. We want school to be as normal as possible and uniforms are definitely part of our normal! If your child's uniforms WERE lost in the hurricane, please let his/her teacher know and we can help you get some uniforms from our donation center! We just need to have sizes!



Morning Drop-off

Elementary parking lot is open only to preK parents and staff until 7:15 am.


Numbered parking lot spaces are for NBHE Staff.


Do not block the entrance to the parking lot.


Please stay off your phone and pay very close attention.




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.
