Note from Mrs. Hassett . . .

With mixed feelings I want to let our Nobleboro School community know that on July 1, 2018 I will become the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment for AOS 93. I'm happy to be continuing in a role in our AOS, and my head is looking forward to the new challenge, but a very big piece of my heart will always be at NCS. As always, I will continue to look forward to every day that I am principal of Nobleboro Central School!

MARCHing along. . .


This week is the end of Trimester 2.  Can you believe that?  Report cards for grades K-4 and 5-8 grades through Powerschool will be released the following week.

Regardless of weather predictions, this is a short week. There is NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS on Friday, March 16 (professional development day).  

This is also the LAST WEEK for Kieve after school activities.  Noah and Nelson's last day for after school activities will be Thursday, March 15 with grades 1 & 2. We have really enjoyed and been the happy beneficiaries of their time with us this year. 

Town Meeting is scheduled for Saturday morning, March 17. Our 8th grade students will be on hand to supply refreshments and observe local government in action.  

Next week we begin MEA testing. Get plenty of rest, eat healthy, do your best but don't stress!

Here's a sign of spring (for anyone becoming weary of wintery weather): The Spring Arts Festival (a/k/a spring concert) is now on the calendar. Save this date:  Thursday, May 3 at 6:15pm.

This just in from the ART ROOM!!!!

Other notable items for March:

March=MEA.  The MEA (Maine Educational Assessment) is a yearly evaluation that provides valuable educational data for students in grades 3-8 in the areas of math, reading, writing and language skills. It's not something to stress about but, of course, every parent wants to send their child to school feeling ready to succeed.  Here are a few tips on how to support your child from home:
  • Get a full night's rest
  • Eat a healthy breakfast
  • Be at school on time. This will give them a positive feeling, "I am prepared and I will do well."
  • Remind them not to fret, but still do their best. That way, they'll be able to really see what they've accomplished!
Our testing periods are scheduled near the beginning of the day during a 3 week period beginning around March 19. Every Gr. 3-8 student is involved.

Here are some more March events:
  • Archery Club is back! Interested gr 5-8 students were invited to sign up and we're looking forward to the first meeting today.
  • Grade 5 is beginning D.A.R.E. (contnue reading below photo)
  • Kieve after school activities continue at the beginning of March through March 15 (last day). 
  • Reminder to Mr. Parcher's class: They will travel to KIEVE for climbing on Monday afternoon, March 5.

If the second option is chosen, please plan to pick them up at 3:40 at Kieve that day.

February 14--We made it to the 100th day of school!

There was an air of excitement in the halls the other morning as grades K-4 traveled in mixed groups to a variety of activity stations. Everything had something to do with 100 relating to math, movement, academics or art. The lobby became a museum filled with student collections.
