Welcome to Nappanee Elementary

It is a privilege for me to welcome you to the website of Nappanee Elementary School. We are extremely proud of our dedicated and experienced teachers and support staff, our outstanding students, and our supportive families. Our school community is dedicated to helping each child succeed and reach their fullest potential. 

Nappanee Elementary is known for its high expectations. We strive to provide our students with the best education possible. To help us reach this goal, it is important to have good communication between home and school. This website is one more way to communicate with you. As we continue to develop this website, look for classroom pages, parent and student links, and PTO updates. Please use the Parent and Student tabs on the left for more information about our student online resources, student programs, school newsletters, and much more useful information from our school. 

I am excited to be a part of such an outstanding school and learning community! I continue to be impressed by the high demand for excellence on the part of both the staff and community.  The strong partnership between home-school-community has been the key to the success of our students and school. I encourage you to become an active partner in your child's learning! 

On behalf of the students and staff at NES... Welcome to our school!

Mr. Randy Cripe, Principal
