                      NBE will be hosting its second Boostherthon Fun Run on Friday, May 18th. The fun run
                      helps us raise funds to purchase technology and classroom materials. The activity is
                      more than the fund raiser. It helps to promote fitness, character education, and
                      leadership. The theme this year is Epic Adventure. More info to come!
