Some other dates for parents to be aware of:
Open house is an excellent opportunity for students to share their school with family. You are invited to visit classrooms beginning at 6 pm, we'll all gather briefly in the gym at 6:30, and then give families a little more time to visit before ending promptly at 7pm.
The following day--Friday, October 7--is a teacher workshop day. No school for students.
Two field trips are scheduled for the beginning of October (dress accordingly!):
- Grades 5 & 6 to DRA's Wabanaki program on Tuesday, October 4th.
- Kindergarten and Grade 1 to Biscay Orchards on Thursday, October 6th.
School Picture Day is Friday, October 14th. Flyers went home with students last week. Did you receive yours? You'll also be able to view package offerings at mylifetouch.com during the two weeks preceding picture day. All packages come with a class picture. New this year, you may purchase just a class picture or purchase a la carte. No pressure to purchase, but many families do appreciate the tradition of school portraits. Purchased packages (including retakes) should arrive by our winter holiday break.
We invite you to attend at least one of the events mentioned above. Perhaps you, too, will see why we believe NCS is a great place to be!
