Happy Friday! Another week has passed and so much has happened! We closed Footnotes, saw some beautiful artwork at the VA show, and enjoyed an IM concert, (if you are interested in checking out the performance, live recordings are on our Twitter page!) You can always follow NESA on Twitter @NESA_NEISD, Instagram @northeastschoolofthearts and Facebook @NorthEastSchoolOfTheArts
That being said, let’s all take a minute to remember to use good social media etiquette and that it is a public forum whose record never goes away! Remind your students too! 😉
NESA Seniors are scheduled for an optional field trip to Incredible Pizza on Friday May 24th and I am looking for parents interested in serving as chaperones for the event. You get free pizza buffet! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested! (Please note, only Seniors who are passing their classes, have no Saturday schools outstanding for attendance and have paid their NESA senior fee will be attending the trip).
This weekend is prom! Please remind students to be safe and make good decisions.
NESA’s night at Evening With Strings is Monday April 15th, from 7:00-8:30
Thursday April 18th is the Summa reception at LEE HS
Friday April 19th is a good Friday Holiday
And Friday April 25th is Battle of Flowers holiday
(That’s two 4 day weeks in a row!)
I have started to see SEAF applications coming in, check the partners webpage for more info!
Also, our last application deadline of the year is April 25th so if you know someone interested in one of our seven majors there is still time to apply to join the NESA family for the 2019-2020 school year! Our application is online on our webpage www.neisd.net/nesa

Community Resource fair looking for volunteers
NEISD Special Education Department and Family Engagement Services, will be hosting a Community Resource Fair on May 17, 2019 at LEE High School, from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. We will be providing our families with over 50+ Community Resource vendors who will be set up in the campus cafeteria. We also want to make this a family evening with fun and games! We are seeking volunteers to support the children’s activities area of the event, which will also be located inside the cafeteria. We have a couple of schools supporting the area, but need more games, such as a “fishing booth, bag toss, ring toss,” or any other carnival-type games that would be fun for kids attending the fair. If there are any NESA students interested in this opportunity to receive service hours, we would greatly appreciate their support! Contact Mrs. Pagona if you are interested in helping out!NETS Community Resource Fair_12x18 ENG-1rdqrwp
