Monday, October 31 is Pumpkin Day for students in Grades K-4! Morning classes and group stations focus on seasonal activities and academics. Hooray for Pumpkin Day! (Parents, save costumes for evening; we'll be busy having fun with pumpkins at school.)
Summer Readers Celebration
October kicked off with Nobleboro Historical Society's Applefest, grades 5 and 6 attended DRA's Wabanaki program. Kindergarten and 1st grade visited an apple orchard. We had picture day, open house, senior buddies and chess club. The soccer season ended and basketball began. Readers and students involved in online work during the summer had their celebration. Meanwhile, several interested 8th grade students experienced backpacking with a fall outing club trip (below).
Fall Outing Club Participants
No wonder it seems like October has zoomed by! We're looking forward to November, too, with parent-teacher conferences (11/17, 11/21 or 11/22), our annual Thanksgiving Feast (11/18), and picture retakes (11/21). Parents of 8th grade students should watch for an email reminder for Family Night at Lincoln Academy (11/2). More about November highlights will be out in the next blog. I'd like to share one more picture from the recent outing club trip. Beautiful!
It's hard to believe, but we've completed our fall sports season. Take a breath, enjoy the fall foliage, and . . . then . . . get ready for basketball! Yes, it's true! Pre-season basketball begins Monday, 10/24. Check the NCS family calendar for dates and times. NCS Family Calendar
Congratulations to both the soccer team and the golf team on great play days yesterday!
NCS played Bristol under the lights recently at Lincoln Academy. The NCS family calendar on our webpage lists the game schedule and is updated regularly. The team had an exciting game vs. Camden yesterday, ending with a 6-6 tie in double overtime.The goals were scored by 4 different people on our team (which is great to see), and the defense continues to step up and really help out when needed! At yesterday's game the midfielders were asked to put in some distance on the field to support the team on both ends. That's teamwork!
Be our guest at the NCS Family Open House. Your child(ren) will be able to show you their classrooms and share some favorite aspects of their school.
Enjoy a long weekend. No school for students on Friday, 10/7 (staff workshop day) and no school Moonday, 10/10 (Columbus Day).
