Student Council Fundraiser


The Nanih Waiya Student Council is busy collecting money for their annual 'Wake Up & Realize The Need' campaign. Christmas boxes were placed in each homeroom and collections have started to roll in. This year the money is going to be utilized to adopt youth from the Angel Tree. Donations will be greatly appreciated. The more money that is raised - the more adoptions that can take place.

The elementary class and the junior high/high school 5th period class that raises the most money will be rewarded with a pizza party. If you would like to donate you may send it with any student to go towards their class total, contact any member of the Nanih Waiya Studnet Council, or drop it off in the office.

Open Letter to Parents Concerning School Attendance

This information was provided by Louisville Elementary Principal Belinda Swart but applies to all students and schools in the District.


Dear Parents or Guardians:
The Mississippi legislature enacted House Bill #1530 during the 2013 Session that states a student absent for more than 37% of his/her unique instruction day is to be considered absent for the entire school day.  
“MDE has interpreted that the intent of the House Bill NO.1530 is to calculate 63% of the individual student’s instruction day, not 63% of the school’s instructional day.  Each individual student’s instructional day will vary based upon the local school board’s policy for early release of high school students, IEPs, dual cred/dual enrollment, participation in extra-curricular activities, etc.”
Throughout a student’s school day, most of the student’s time is spent being instructed.  However, there are a few exceptions such as recess, lunch, and between classes.  Depending upon the grade and teacher, each child has a different instructional schedule.  Basically, in order to be considered present, a child must be in attendance for 63% of their instructional day.  If not, a child will be considered absent.
Also, please notice that the Louisville Municipal School District handbook policy clearly states that a parent or guardian cannot sign a student out of school after 2:00 without proof of a doctor’s appointment.  Please make sure you are following the policy.  
Thanks for your help.

Nanih Waiya FCA Carries Ms Glowing for Christ Cross on September 9

 October 27th, 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of Mission Mississippi, a racial and denominational reconciliation ministry based in Jackson. To celebrate, Mission Mississippi asked the Fellowship of Christian Athletes to team up to tackle the huge vision of carrying a lighted cross across the entire state of Mississippi on foot. On August 7th at the steps of the Capitol, beginning with the Governor, the cross began its journey across the state. Making its way through all 82 counties in 82 days, the cross stops at each county for a service and a ceremonial passing of the cross. The cross, designed by Nissan to be lightweight and lighted, will make its way through the state, carried by the students of local Fellowship of Christian Athlete (FCA) chapters, and will come full circle back around to Jackson for a statewide rally on October 27th. The rally will be held at Veterans Memorial Stadium at 5:00 PM and every county is invited and encouraged to come. The schedule as local students carry the cross through Winston County follows:
