May, continued . . . Highlights & Reminders to Parents

On Friday, May 15, 3rd and 4th grade students headed to Augusta. They visited both the Maine State Museum and the State House (pictured).

Baseball and softball games this week:  The boys baseball team plays Oceanside today, May 18 @ 3:45. On Wednesday, May 20, both softball and baseball teams play at Bristol. Families and fans are reminded to check the NCS web page regularly for updated sports practices and events. This information changes occasionally, and it appears on our family calendar.

Guest reader Mark Ferrero (Skidompha) has been reading The Cricket in Times Square to interested 4th and 5th grade students during Literary Lunch.

Seventh grade students will attend a special literary program at Lincoln Academy with local author Lea Wait. Our students recently completed Uncertain Glory in preparation for Wednesday's get-together.This happens Wednesday, May 20th

On Thursday, May 21, grade 4 will have time in the FARMS kitchen at Rising Tide. Later that day the Kindergarten will be at the FARMS kitchen for an age-appropriate cooking experience.
Hopefully all parents know that children DO HAVE SCHOOL FRIDAY, MAY 22.   This was originally a teacher's workshop day, but it was changed to a student day in order to make up for lost time during the winter.   Monday is the Memorial Day holiday.   We hope families will enjoy the long weekend! 

Later this month Grade 6 students will be heading to the Hurricane Island. This educational opportunity and outdoor experience is new to our students and was made possible thanks to a generous grant relating to the Hurricane Island Foundation Leadership and Physical Science program.

Grades 2 and 3 have been cooperatively rehearsing for their spring play, which will be presented in the Music Room on Friday, May 29.  See the family calendar on our website for the morning show times.

Looking ahead to June, you'll want to make note of the NPTO 2-for-1 book fair June 8-12 in the library, including the evening of the Spring Concert, Thursday, June 11 @ 6:30.  More information will be sent home about these events.  Finally, parents, please see below for information on the NCS Summer Institute.
