Recent events and accomplishments at NCS:

After winning the NCS Geo Bee, Mara, gr. 8, took a qualifying test for the State National Geographic Bee to be held later this spring.  Mara did well on the test and has qualified for the next level. Congratulations Mara! (Pictured: Isobel and Mara, top contenders at the NCS Bee held on January 29th.) 

For awhile there, it didn't seem like we'd ever get to the 100th day of school.  We made it!   The 100th day was a fun way for students in grades K-4 to work in groups on a variety of math related activities..  

Zoe and Dave (Kieve Educators in Residence) will be with us through March 20. That means there are a few more opportunities to sign up for after school activities.   Check out the signup sheets for dates and details for your specific age group.  The activities are free.

Three music events take place between February and March. February 12 was Performance Night.   Interested students, as well as band students, performed before family and friends.   It was definitely a success!  

On March 6, sixth graders Tegan G, Quinn H., Emily M., Hayley P., Scott P. and Emma W. attended the District 3 Music Festival.  Next Monday, March 16, all NCS band students will join with area bands for the AOS 93 Music Festival.  This will be held at Lincoln Academy.

Nobleboro Central School celebrated and learned about Dental Health Month thanks to a variety of activities arranged by Nurse Lazzari.

Tooth decay is preventable. Oral diseases affect health and well-being throughout life and can be a common problem in childhood. A balanced diet, healthy snacks, daily brushing and flossing and regular dental checkups are the keys to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

Dr. Seuss' birthday is an opportunity for younger grades to appreciate the gift of reading.  Others had the opportunity to invite a volunteer guest reader to their classrooms through Community Read Aloud.

The NCS LIONS wrapped up a fantastic basketball season by attending a Red Claws game on February 28. Members of the Lions championship team received sweatshirts to commemorate a successful season. 
 Have a great week and remember to check our website calendar for details about the month of March.
