Back to school registration

Please come to Nixon School on Friday, August 15th, from 4:00 – 5:30 pm to find out your teacher and class assignment. PTA volunteers and Enrichment Providers will welcome you and answer questions. Nixon school resumes Tuesday, August 19th, at 8:00 am. Information will be mailed to families in early August.

Chalk it up!

Mark your calendars. Nixon’s first Chalk It Up! event is coming next school year on Friday, August 22, 2014. Students with their families will have the opportunity to design a square on the school walkway.

Come and be a part of this creative after school activity! At the same time you get a chance to welcome and meet new families to Nixon, as well as to catch up with our Nixon community after a long summer break.

The PTA will provide high quality chalks and our 5th graders will have refreshments available.


Interested volunteers please send us an email.

Field Day Volunteers Needed

Our annual Field Day will be held on the morning of Thursday, May 15. In order to run this whole school event, we need at least 25 parent volunteers to help run the various stations. If you enjoy fun and sportsmanship and fair amount of silliness, please consider joining us for this event from 8:15 – 11:30 am. We begin set-up at 8:15 and the students join us at 9:00.

We also need 4-5 parents to help prepare water balloons from 8:15 – 10:00 am on the Wednesday morning (May 14) before field day. Click on the link below to sign up. If you have any problems with the link, you could alternatively email parent Jessica Ferrell.
