There's so much happening!

Nobleboro is a busy place! Without even glancing into the future, there'll be plenty to write about in today's blog.  

First, let's think about academics.   March 7-11 is actually a four day week for students.  On Friday, March 11, there is NO SCHOOL. AOS93 teachers will be involved in their last teacher workshop day of this school year on that day.

Monday-Thursday, we'll be all about our regular daily schedule. After school Kieve activities (Mon=7th & 8th; Tues,Thurs=1st-3rd; Wed=4th-6th) are scheduled. Signup through our webpage LOOK UNDER FORMS & SIGNUPS and, of couse, homework club and chess club. The 8th grade attends the FARMS kitchen on Monday and 3rd grade wraps up their skating unit in PE on Wednesday.  

Despite a short week, there happen to be many opportunities for enrichment and family involvement.  Here are a few:

  • On Tuesday, March 8 @ 6:30 pm, the HARLEM SUPERSTARS COMEDY BASKETBALL team will challenge the Lincoln Academy Faculty/Community Dream team.  The excitement begins at 6:30 at the Lincoln Academy gym.This benefit game always seems to be a popular event for families. If your family is interested, you may purchase tickets in advance through the NCS office. Advance admission is $8/ticket. Tickets at the door Tuesday evening: $9.  (We've been promised a brief visit from the a few of the Harlem Super Stars on Tuesday afternoon.  Shhh. Don't tell mention it to your kids. . . yet!)
  • LITTLE LEAGUE SIGNUPS are Wednesday, March 9, 6:00-7:00 pm.  This will take place in the NCS lobby for all Nobleboro families interested in Tball, Farm Team or Little League. This is the second of two opportunities to sign up. Please refer to a recent blog for details.
  • The NPTO meets Wednesday, March 9 @ 6pm in the library. If you find yourself at signups, or have been thinking you could help with April's NOBLEBORO NONSENSE, then you are most welcome to stop in at Wednesday's meeting!
  • PERFORMANCE NIGHT is Thursday, March 10, 6:30 pm. This special evening involves band students and other students who have expressed interest in performing. It's held in the Music Room, a slightly more relaxed setting than the winter or spring concert venue. If your child is participating, he/she will have received more details about arrival from Ms. Preston. At NCS, we always enjoy the final preparation for the evening when students get a chance to see the dress rehearsal.
  • Friday, March 11 is the 6th GRADE HONORS MUSIC FESTIVAL.
  • Friday, March 11, 5:30-7:30 pm FAMILY FUN & FITNESS NIGHT @ YMCA for NOBLEBORO CENTRAL SCHOOL.  This is something NEW and FREE!   Pizza and healthy snacks will provided by the NPTO at 5:30--while they last.   You can play tennis, floor hockey, basketball, jump rope, rollerblade, enter for door prizes and MORE!  (You may bring your own skates/blades or some will be available there.)   This is free to Nobleboro families. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Also on Friday, March 11, KIEVE/WAVUS will offer a COMMUNITY CLIMB NIGHT which is also free to families.  Click here for details:  Kieve

Phew! That's a lot of information.  Remember to keep reading, especially if you're part of the bicycle challenge in grades 3-6. The final day for the bike challenge is coming up on March 18th.   March 18th is also the end of Trimester 2.   Enjoy the week!
