Morning Stretch

Second grade students prepare for the day ahead with a brief moment of morning stretches.


SPRING SPORTS NEWS:   The Lady Lions opened their season with a win over Bristol with the pitching/catching team of Hayley and Tegan coming out strong to set the stage for the afternoon. Defensively the girls worked as a team to hold Bristol to 6 runs. The Lions ran the bases aggressively and hit the ball with confidence, Anna led the team in hits with 3. While the eighth graders batted in most of the runs: Hayley - 4, Allison and Maddy - 3, Tegan - 2, and Katelin - 1. Our next game is this afternoon at home vs Wiscasset. GO LIONS!

Take a look at this!

Two 8th grade students, Allison and Quinn, are attending the 21st ANNUAL GIRLS' DAY at the STATE HOUSE today.   Quinn and Allison will experience state government in an interactive way through workshops, discussions and hands-on activities.  They'll learn about civic participation, policy-making, and the role our legislators play in state government.

We say goodbye and thank you to our Kieve educators in residence today. Noah and Katrina have been very involved in our school and after school program for the last few months.  We've all enjoyed and appreciated their presence at NCS and wish them well in their spring/summer endeavors.

Looking ahead, parents, please remember:
  • Maine Educational Assessment (MEA) continues for grades 3-8. Plenty of rest, a good breakfast and regular attendance are the best preparation for MEA's.
