Spirit Days and SUMMER LEARNING!

Triplets X 2 on Tuesday!
Although today is "Twinning Day," right now I am thinking about summer and reading. . . 

Do you know that you can help your child(ren) transition into next year's grade simply by continuing with a little regular reading during the coming summer days?  You may come to appreciate a little quiet time at home, too, by setting the stage for periods of relaxed reading. We have a few ways to help support your efforts:
It's time to sign up!  

NCS SUMMER READING CHALLENGE  All K-7th grade students (that is, next year's 8th graders) are eligible to participate in our summer reading challenge.  It's simple! Just read, keep a log, and see Mrs. Harriman in September.  See SUMMER READING CHALLENGE

NCS ONLINE LEARNING INSTITUTE A number of NCS students w nominated by their teachers for this.  Take advantage of it, if you can!

NCS LENDING LIBRARY PROGRAM  Our library is open regularly for this year's K-Grade 5 students.  Gr. K-5 families have received an email explaining this, but here's the link for this program:  LENDING LIBRARY INFO and/or SIGN UP

The link below will explain ALL of the ABOVE programs and may help you plan for summer:

Now, to get back to the current week's agenda:

Wednesday's SPIRIT DAY is "Fancy Dressed or Maine-ah's Best" and the word of the day will be responsibility.    Want to dress to the nine's and look suave and sophisticated? You're "Fancy."   If you'd rather, think camo, flannel, lobster, moose, etc., and you're a "Maine-ah."  Either way, your class will be glad to see how you interpret Wednesday's Spirit Day in the morning.

Spirit Days at NCS

Monday=Mismatched Day

There were some crazy, mixed up outfits walking around here today.  Today's character word of the day was KINDNESS!

Tomorrow is about TOTALLY TWINNING/respect.   Wednesday's theme is FANCY DRESSED or MAINE-AH's BEST/responsibility.   Thursday will be GO GREEN FOR NCS/honesty.   Friday's them is up to individual FUN FRIDAY CLASS CHOICE/perseverance.  (See last week's blog post for details.)  Participation is optional, but we're keeping track of which class has the most spirit and those results will be announced at the end of the week.  It's meant to be fun!

Please be mindful of your child's lunch balance(s) as we near the end of the school year. All balances must be paid in full on June 23.   (Credit balances are carried forward.)

More news tomorrow. . .

June!

Greetings from Hadlock Field!


There is so much to share with you!   This past week 6-8th grade students had a perfect day to attend the AOS93 Field Day hosted at LIncoln Academy. Fifth grade students celebrated completion of the DARE program by taking in a Sea Dogs game and, again, the weather on Thursday was GORGEOUS!  NCS spring sports have now wrapped up. Athletes will be invited to an awards potluck on Thursday, June 15 (more on that separately).  

Today four lucky NCS girls and 4 boys are heading home with a new bicycle, thanks to the generosity of the Alna Anchor Lodge of Masons in Damariscotta. Third through sixth grade students were offered the opportunity to read as part of the Bikes for Books challenge. Meanwhile, 8th grade students are at the FARMS kitchen, grade 3 and senior buddies have a final meeting at the Nobleboro Historical Society, and NWEA testing is done! (YAHOO!)

Next week:
  • SPIRIT WEEK at NCS. Yesterday's post will provide you with Monday-Friday's themes
  • Grade 2 will travel to the Rachel Carson Salt Pond Preserve 
Looking ahead:
  • NCS offers summer reading opportunities and a few levels of support to keep children reading throughout the summer.   Families, watch for more information coming your way.
  • June 19-21 will be a busy week for 8th grade, culminating with the 8th grade promotion celebration on Wed, June 21 at 6:30
  • Step up day:Thursday, June 22
  • Last day of school:  Friday, June 23 dismissal at noon
Enjoy the weekend!  (Remember to read previous posts for Spirit Week details, etc.)
