NPES Initiatives

“Leading and Learning in All Directions”

“Leading and Learning in All Directions” will be our focus this year. A compass will be the visual symbol of our Lion Language. All students will embark on a learning and leadership safari that will lead them down exciting pathways. These learning and leadership pathways lead to four Dens filled with 21st century learning opportunities.

In the Nurture Den, students will learn about the importance of taking care of the environment, themselves, and others.

The Expression Den will explore the arts and creativity.

Building school and community connections will be the focus of the Service Den.

Within the Wonder Den, students will discover problem solving along with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

Along with the Den initiative, we have other opportunities that will showcase NPES as a leader in 21st century education. These include:

  • Lions Exploring All Directions (LEAD Time)
  • Lifelong Guidelines and LIFESKILLS
  • Leading with PRIDE

The addition of iPads and ChromeBooks for student and teacher use will further enhance our instruction this year at NPES.
