“Ella & the All-Stars” comes to NES on 9/27!

Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders are in for a treat on September 27.  They will spend some time with author Sherry Cerino as she reads her book, “Ella & the All-Stars”, to promote kindness, friendship, and acceptance of differences!

Families have a special opportunity to purchase their very own author-signed copy of “Ella & the All-Stars”. $3 for each book purchased will be donated back to the NES PTA.

If you are interested in ordering “Ella & the All-Stars,” visit:

Orders are due before October 12, 2018. If you would like more information about Sherry Cerino and Ella’s Way, please visit the website
