Are you looking for ways to help your child continue with the progress made during the 2015-16 school year? You have options!

The 2016 NCS Summer Learning Institute

  • All K - 7  students (entering 1-8) are invited to participate in summer learning experiences.  There are several ways to do this!
  • There will be a celebration and NCS Book Buck rewards for participants in all of the summer learning opportunities below!

ALL K - 7 NCS students are encouraged to participate in our annual 
NCS Summer Reading Challenge
It’s easy! Students set a summer reading goal with their teachers and record their progress through the summer. When they return to school in September, they turn in the record sheet to Ms. Harriman, our librarian. If they’ve met their goal, they win an invitation to a celebration and NCS Book Bucks.

A number of NCS students will be nominated by their teachers or parents to join our
NCS Online Learning Institute
Students use Aleks or IXL for math practice and/or Lexia for reading. They can practice anytime and anywhere they have access to a digital device and the Internet. Parents and teachers can nominate students for online learning. NCS staff will monitor students’ progress through the summer. As with the Summer Reading Challenge, students who participate regularly and make progress in online learning will get an invitation to a celebration and NCS Book Bucks.

NEW THIS YEAR! Families in grades 1- 5 can sign up for our weekly
NCS Lending Library Program
On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 - 1:00 from June 28th through July 29th students (accompanied by an adult) can stop by the NCS literacy room next to the office and borrow a book from our beautiful Leveled Literacy Intervention kits. The books are organized from level A (kindergarten) - level W (5th grade.) Families will be asked to sign up to be part of the Lending Library Program. Books will be logged for the Summer Reading Challenge!

Some NCS students will be nominated by their teachers to join our
NCS Summer School
Summer school will be running again this year at NCS for students currently in grades 2 - 5. The sessions will take place here at school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 am to 11 am from June 28th through July 29th. Teachers will recommend students, and parents may also make a request by contacting their child’s teacher or the office.

Look for more information in the coming weeks!
