We're preparing for our guests!

Everyone's ready for tonight's Winter Arts Festival! Families, we hope you'll join us for a special NCS seasonal event. The "Winter Birds" (pictured above) are preparing for a visual arts performance. All K-gr 5 students should be in their classrooms at 6pm.  Band and Senior Chorus meet in the music room to warm up at 6pm.   The program begins at 6:15 pm.   

The NPTO book fair is open just before and after the concert.   If you are here beforehand, we hope you'll enjoy the student art on display in the halls.   

Thank you for helping to make this a wonderful occasion for students!

Grade 6 students continue to collect spare change for their Heifer International service project. They wish to help struggling families in Asia and Africa (an area of study within their class).   You'll find a donation jar in the lobby until December 22. If you are interested in making a contribution, thank you!  Checks may be made payable to NCS.

We DO APPRECIATE your time in completing the 2017 PARENT SURVEY.  Your thoughts and feedback are valued.

2017-2018 Parent Survey

Parents and guardians:   Please take a few minutes to give us feedback about your family's thoughts about our school.   2017-2018 PARENT SURVEY

Student Message

Donate today!!!
The sixth grade class is raising money for the Heifer Project. The Heifer Project is an organization that is using the money they collect to buy animals for poor people all over the world. Some of the animals that are going to be purchased with the money they raise are chickens, goats, sheep, and also ducks to name a few. The animals are used to get food like meat, eggs, and milk. Those families will also be making  profits by selling animals and eggs. Please donate what you can! We will have cans set up around the school for you to put spare change in during  the next few weeks. Thanks for the donations, 6th grade!

Winter sports have officially begun! The next home game is Wednesday, 11/29 vs. Bristol (girls play first at 3:45). Game dates are listed on our website, SEE THE FAMILY CALENDAR, and game information is updated there regularly.  BUSLINE LEAGUE SCHOOL ADDRESSES can also be found under the Sports tab.

Do you have these important dates on your calendar?  Thursday, December 14 is the WINTER ARTS FESTIVAL (concert) at 6:15 pm. We hope you'll be here to enjoy performances by all grade levels. In addition to choral and band performances, students will share in visual arts and movement. Plan to spend an hour with us that evening.

Thanks to the NPTO, the WINTER BOOK FAIR will be held in the library that same week (just 2 weeks away?!?!?!) on Monday, December 11-Friday, December 15 immediately before/after school. It will be open the evening of December 14 too.

Soon, you'll notice that the NPTO WISH TREE is up in the lobby. In addition to lighting up the entrance in a seasonal way, the wish tree is decorated with "ornaments" listing specific needs from classrooms, etc. If you'd like to fulfill one of those wishes, you're welcome to take an ornament and use it for a gift tag on the gift. Simply return that gift to the office before the winter break.

NO SCHOOL FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1 FOR STUDENTS.  Friday is a professional development day for teachers.  Friday, December 1 is also the last day of Trimester 1.  Report cards (K-4) and online reports (5-8) are available the following Friday, December 8.
