The Neidig Chalkboard Newsletter

2021- 2022 School Year

Greetings Neidig Families!

This is the first communication to Neidig families for the new school year, so this is the first time many families are receiving a School Messenger email from me.  My name is Scott Godshalk, and I have the pleasure of being the principal at Neidig Elementary School.  For all new families, welcome to Neidig!  To all returning families, welcome back!  The Neidig teaching team is excited for the upcoming school year!

I know families are eagerly awaiting information about the new school year.  Information about your child's teacher(s), bussing information, class assignments, and more will be coming out in about 2 weeks.  That information will be sent via email.

Neidig's New Administrative Assistant!

We are pleased to announce that Lindi Smith is Neidig's new administrative assistant!  Mrs. Smith has served as Neidig's library secretary in recent years, and the school team is thrilled to work with her in this capacity.  She will begin her new role during the week of August 2.  If you need to call the Neidig office prior to that time, please leave a message and we will return your call soon.

Open House

YES!  We will have an Open House before school starts!  We were not able to have this event last year but we will this year.  First grade through fifth grade Open House will take place on Wednesday, August 25. (Kindergarten families, please see below for your event.)  Neidig's Open House is an informal event, meaning there are not presentations.  This is an opportunity to see classrooms, meet teachers, and see Neidig prior to the first day of school.  This will be the first opportunity for Neidig families to see our new school!  (NOTE!  We will have a grand re-opening ceremony too.  More information to come!)  Students with last names A - L are invited to Open House from 3:00 - 3:45 PM on this day.  Students with last names M - Z are invited from 4:00 - 4:45 PM.  We ask that you limit attendance at Open House to immediate family members only.  Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you!


Kindergarten Orientation

Kindergarten Orientation will take place on Thursday, August 26, at Neidig Elementary.  Students will spend time in their classrooms with the teacher while parents learn more about the school.  There WILL be a bus ride!  Kindergarten families, we know you are eagerly awaiting information about your child's assignment to morning kindergarten, afternoon kindergarten, or full day kindergarten (FDK.)  There are kindergarten assessments being completed in the next 2 weeks to make those determinations.  We will send kindergarten assignments as soon as we can.  The plan is to send kindergarten assignment information the week of August 9.  Here is the Kindergarten Orientation schedule for 8/26/2021:
