Did you ORDER Your shirt yet?

 

 

 

Shirt Details

Our shirts are a soft, pre-shrunk cotton blend. They are a gently fitted, longer cut, flattering to all body types. Professionally screen printed with long lasting ink that is sure to make it through all those trips through the washer. Shirts generally fit true to size.

Pricing

Both shirts are normally $15 but are on sale now for only $14. (Sizes 2XL and above are $2 extra in cost.) Only shirts  ordered online before July 10th will be sold at this price, so don’t wait! If a style sells out, we do not know when we will reach the printer minimums for back orders so we strongly advise ordering during the pre-sale period to ensure timely delivery!

All Shirts are On sale from now through July 10th for $14!

 Ice Cream Social


It’s hot, summer is approaching, and we could all use a chance to cool off. Join us for our yearbook signing party and enjoy some cold treats.

Each Neely kid gets one treat free!

Teachers get a free treat, too! Choose from an ice cream sandwich or a fruit popsicle. Additional treats can be purchased for 50c each.  

Bring your yearbook and join us in the cafeteria on May 17th from 5:00-6:30. The whole family is welcome.

We will also be selling gel pens in fun colors for $1 each, if you forget to bring something to sign with.

Yearbooks will be handed out at the end of the school day on Friday, May 17th. A few extra yearbooks were ordered. These will be sold (first come, first served, in person) in the office on Friday for $30 each. If there are any left, we will sell them at the Ice Cream Social.

Event is cash or check only for pens, yearbooks, and additional treats.

the kids burn off some of that energy before you’re with them for the rest of the summer

Our PRIVATE Neely Skate Party!

Join us right after school ends on the last day of the year at Skateland in Chandler: 12:45-3:45, May 23, 2019. Last year, we had over 100 people skating!

We are holding a Pre-Sale to cut down on your wait time. Entrance, Lunch Deals, and Skate Rental call all be purchased by returning the paper flyer that was sent home today. Can’t find it? You can print one HERE.

Lunch Deals are available during the Pre-Sale only. Admission and Rentals can be purchased during the Pre-Sale or at the door.

Any Neely family is welcome! Children do not have to attend Neely, but they do need to be accompanied by someone who currently has a child at Neely (so you can bring your neighbor kids or cousins that you’re watching that day).

Pre-Sale purchases are due to the Neely Office on May 21. Entrance, Lunch, and Rental tickets will come home in an envelope on May 22nd.

Join us for an Indoor

for the last 30 min!

The DETAILS:

Anyone who wants to skate must pay an admission fee.  The cost is $3 for each child and $2 for each adult. We are offering a price break with a family maximum for SKATERS of $10. Rentals and lunch will be an additional cost. Non-skaters are welcome to come for free. Also, if you have young kids, you CAN bring a stroller and skate them in it around the rink with you for free!  100% of the cost of admission comes back to Neely!

Skateland is offering a Lunch Deal for us. $3 will purchase a slice of pizza and a small drink. There will be a table set out where you can redeem your Pre-Sale ticket for your slice and drink without waiting in the concession line. You may choose any drink, but we will have Sprite and Coke in pre-filled cups.

You can bring and wear your own skates. If you need skates, Skate Rentals can be purchased ahead of time. Old-school skates are $3.50 per pair and RollerBlades are $4.50. Just give your Skate Rental ticket to the attendant at the skate counter.

Skate-Mates (those pvc-pipe supports on wheels) can be rented at the door only. 

The entire Skateland facility is open only to Neely families so you’re sure to find a friend! 

If you still have questions contact us at [email protected] and we will do our best to answer them.

Our pretty flyer, so you know what to look for in the stack of papers in their Friday folders.

Spring KNO

(Kids’ Night Out)

Friday, April 26, 4:45-8:45pm

We Need Your Help!

The evening’s fun includes:

A DANCE party

Glow Soccer and Robot Tag

Castle and Basketball

plus PIZZA!

We even have a movie (High School Musical) for you!

It’s Outdoor fun like you’ve never seen before at Neely!


Ready to register?

The form opens at 8am on April 15th. It closes at 10am on April 24th.

Sign up for KNO

The form is set to take payments by cash, check, or PayPal. You may pay with a credit card or e-check through PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account. 

Only 275 children will be enrolled. We will use names from a waiting list to add children if space opens up.

What does it cost?

It’s $18 for the first child enrolled, and $12 for each additional kid.  

This price includes a pizza dinner, water, a treat, and all events for the evening.

What should my kid bring?

Not much! For the movie portion of the evening, the kids will be allowed to lay out blankets and pillows to get comfortable on the cafeteria floor. This will only be about 45 minutes at the end of the night, so they may not need anything. No toys or stuffed animals will be allowed. Please label all items with your name in case they are misplaced. These items will be stored in the music room until they are needed.

Your kid will NOT need a water bottle, a meal, or anything electronic! We have it all covered!

Who is going to be watching my kid?

Neely teachers! Aren’t they wonderful? Each grade will be with a certified teacher and several teen/parent helpers all evening. PTO board members will supervise and organize the event. Only registered volunteers will be allowed through the south cafeteria doors to ensure your child’s safety.

Give me the nitty-gritty. How does this all work?

Arrive before the doors open at 4:45 and get in the single line. Make sure you have your check-in card that will be sent home on April 24th. Volunteers will verify your child’s information, detach your check-out slip, attach allergy wristbands, and direct your kids where to go. You may walk them into the cafeteria to help them get comfortable if needed, but only registered volunteers may enter the school campus.

Then you’re off for a kid free evening! We will contact you if your child needs you, we promise, so go with a carefree heart!

Return between 8:30 and 8:45. The east cafeteria door will be open and we will need you to be patient as we match children and parents safely. Do not leave younger siblings in the car, please. You will need the check-out slip you received when you dropped off your child(ren). If you do not have a check-out slip, we will have a table so we can verify your ID. Proceed into the waiting area. We have wranglers there to collect your kids for you. Show one of them your check-out slip. If you have a photo of them on your phone, have it available to show the wrangler to make finding the kids faster. Your kids will meet you by the double doors. A volunteer will collect and match your check-out slip to your child’s nametag at the end of the waiting area and you will be free to go.

*If you have a 6th grader, please use the Remind app at pick-up to text the 6th grade team your child’s name and that you are in line and they will send your kid to the cafeteria.

BUILD THE CASTLE

Paper Drive

January 28 – February 1

One thing every Neely parent knows is that our school uses a LOT of paper. 

Teachers are doing what they can to use less paper every day, but kids learn best when they can touch and see something physically in front of them.

Our campus paper supply is very low and our teachers need our help to make it to the end of the year with enough paper. One of our most helpful events, the Costco shopping night, was discontinued by Costco this year. In the past we have gotten 8-10 cases of paper from that one event. Please help us provide our teachers with one of the basic materials they need.

Bring it in by the ream, the case, or the pallet. Colored or White paper, we will use it all!

We will also accept cash/check donations if you don’t have time to shop. We can use it to buy paper in bulk at a discount.

The Prizes

We need your help in filling our stage with so many reams of paper that we can construct a CASTLE with it! If we can, everyone will earn a special school-wide reward!

How big of a castle do you want to build?

  • Cool Castle: Otterpops for everyone (800 reams)
  • Awesome Castle: Otterpops PLUS a Pajama Day the Friday before Spring Break! (1600 reams)

Also with every ream you donate, you will get one ticket to Skateland for a special Neely Only Skate Party and Indoor Snowball Fight on Tuesday, February 26, from 5:00-7:30pm. Bring your own skates or rent them for only $3.50.


Thank you for donating!

Be sure to subscribe to our website and follow us on Facebook. If we find any paper deals, we will post them!

Neely Read-A-Thon

Dec 21 to January 6 (Winter Break)

Reading Is Fun!

+

We would like to encourage all of our students to continue reading over Winter Break. The difference 20 minutes of reading a day can make in a child’s future is amazing!

We Love Our School

=

Our school needs funds to do things like shade our playgrounds and update old equipment. The money for these items is not in the district budget.

A Read-A-Thon!

Let’s raise some funds and help our children start the new semester off strong! A little bit from many people can go a long way to helping us achieve our goals.

Details of the Read-A-Thon:

Kids read a LOT of books at Neely. We want to encourage them to keep up the good work over the holiday break.

Here is how it works:

Parents will track their child’s reading in minutes.

Kids will contact their friends and family and ask for a donation of any amount for each minute they read over break or for a one-time donation for completing any reading over break.

    • Cash or check can be used for one-time donations.
    • Parents can collect cash or check for “per minute” donations if they do the calculations manually (# of  minutes read  x $ donated per minute).
    • Friends and family can use  this website  to document their “per minute” pledge or  to send in a one-time donation and pay with a credit card.
    • Parents will need to log the total number of minutes on the website during the week of January 7th for the credit card to be charged.
    • Donations are due to school by January 14 at 4pm to be considered for the prize.

We keep 100% of the check/cash donations and 90% of credit card donations.

The other 10% is for admin fees from the Read-A-Thon site.

A couple of rules to keep things fair:

  • All books must be previously unread by that child.
  • We would prefer that the books be close to their AR level in difficulty to ensure their reading progress continues.
  • Children who can read independently must read the books themselves. Kindergarten or other students who still need support can log minutes read with an adult’s help or read on their own.

The prizes

Read 5 Hours (300 Minutes)

Every child who reads at least 20 minutes a day, for 15 days (for a total of 300 minutes) will receive a ThumbThing. It helps you hold open your book when you read!

Read the Most Minutes in Your Grade

The student who reads the most minutes in each grade will receive a Barnes and Noble Gift Card.

In case of a tie of minutes completed, we will determine a random tie breaker.

Raffle Entry for Reading More Than 5 Hours

We also have 2 grand prizes! Each full hour of reading after the first 5 is worth ONE (1) entry into the drawing for the grand prize raffle.

Primary (K-2) will be put in a drawing for this fun laptop that can change into a tablet!

Intermediate (3-6) will be entered into a second drawing for an XBox One with NBA2K19 and an Echo Dot, 3rd Generation

Raise the Most Money by Reading

Students will have one (1) week after the Read-A-Thon ends (until January 14th @ 4pm) to collect cash and online pledges. The winner of this Nintendo Switch with a Mario game is the student with the highest total collections before fees are deducted.
