Final email reminder: Online registration for 2018-19 is ongoing

Northwest News will go on hiatus during July, but before the break, please take this opportunity to remember to enroll your child for the 2018-19 school year if you have a new or returning student.

Online enrollment for both new and returning students is open at www.nisdtx.org/enrollment, which is processed by PowerSchool. This service will gradually walk parents and guardians through the online enrollment process, with most information already entered for students returning to the district.

Families of returning students have been sent a "snap code" to register their children. This snap code will allow parents and guardians to begin updating their children's information, the majority of which will be pre-filled based on the 2017-18 school year's information. Parents and guardians should contact their children's campuses if they have issues with their snap codes; do not register a child without it or start a new enrollment from a different email address.

Northwest ISD will begin importing family email addresses for district communication during 2018-19 in the middle of July. If your child graduated in 2018 and you have no more children enrolled in the district, you should no longer receive this newsletter (barring any participation in other district activities that would include you in our mailing list).

The Eaton baseball team celebrates their state semifinal victory

The state champion Eaton High School baseball team will ride on the featured float in the city of Haslet's Independence Day Parade on Friday, June 29, recognizing the team's tremendous accomplishments this year.

Haslet's 17th annual Independence Day Parade will begin at 7:30 p.m. June 29 at the Haslet Community Park, located at 301 1st St. Following the parade - and prior to the event's fireworks celebration - Coach Jeremy Fatheree will address the crowd regarding the team's season.

The Eagle baseball team won the UIL 5A state championship on June 9 with a 4-1 victory over the Forney High School Jackrabbits. The championship is the school's first team state title in its history, and it comes in just the second year of varsity competition and first year with a senior class.
