Mid January

Look at these tulips! Someone at the grocery store handed them to me and I just had to share them with everyone! That one kind gesture made me smile all w e e k   l o n g  .  .  .

Today is the annual NCS Geography Bee.  Students are prepared to test their world knowledge. Representing grade 4-8 grades are: Rowan C and Lillian L for 4th; Hunter B and Maggie M for 5th; Caleb I and Chase C for 6th; Lola F and Lucy W, 7th; and John R and Alden H, 8th. Stay tuned for today's results.

The playoff schedule will be posted on our website's family calendar soon.

Hooray for Winter--at last!!!

Recess was a lot of fun today. Fresh air! Snow sculpture friendships!

The NCS winter recess policy:  Students should be dressed for snow if they want to be in the snow--snowpants, mittens, hats, etc.  What joy to be out in the fresh air AND to stay warm, dry and comfortable! Please send your kids with snowpants and mittens, if possible.

Hooray for Winter Break!


Dear NCS Family, 

I want to express my gratitude to all of you for the warm welcome I have received here in Nobleboro. I am extremely grateful to be a part of this amazing school. The students are kind and compassionate towards one another. There is a tremendous sense of community within the halls of our school. The students are proud of our school and it shows! I am also honored to be a part of the staff at NCS. They are world class educators with an unwavering determination to do what is best for students.     

I hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday break.    I look forward to learning and laughing with everyone as we continue to foster our future leaders.     

School will resume on January 2nd.
