Planning ahead . . .

Thursday, November 17 begins a "season" of parent teacher conferences.   Conferences are basically on 11/17 (that's tomorrow!) and continue on 11/21, 11/22.   If you haven't scheduled yours, follow this link and choose the link next to the appropriate teacher:  TO SCHEDULE A PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCE   If you need help, be sure to call the office.

We look forward to greeting our K-4 guests on Friday at the NCS Thanksgiving Celebration, as well as sharing a nice meal with all students and staff.  Families, thank you for your offers of dessert, water or cider.  Baked goods and beverages may be left at the office any time Thursday or dropped off Friday morning before school.   

Next week is a short school week. Picture retakes are Monday, 11/21. If you'd like a retake, your child should bring the first package to school on Monday.   Tuesday, 11/22 is the flu vaccine clinic 9-10 am.  K-4 students who signed up for a flu vaccine should be accompanied by an adult.  No school Wednesday, 11/23 - Friday, 11/25.

Academics and sports continue--even on the short weeks!  T

That brings us to December.  Trimester 1 grades will close on Friday, December 2.  Report cards are available the following Friday. 

Mark your calendar for Thursday, December 8, 6 pm and plan to attend the NCS Winter Concert Fine Arts Event.  The NPTO book fair will also be open that evening (and all week December 5-9).

Please read on. . . 

This year the Central Lincoln County YMCA is partnering with local schools and organizations to help families in our community who might need a little extra assistance this holiday season. We are hoping to help spread the word and encourage families who could use some support putting presents under the tree to take part in the YMCA’s Holiday Tree of Giving’s simple!

You can find a one page application in the NCS lobby, at the YMCA, and at other community buildings, or contact Mrs. Weeks to have one sent through email or regular mail. In this application you fill out information that will help provide each child in your family with up to 4 gifts (2 wants and 2 needs). The YMCA will have these gift requests anonymously hanging as an “ornament” on a tree in their lobby for community members and organizations to take, fulfill and return to the YMCA. Once returned, the YMCA will contact you directly.

All applications to participate in this program will be kept confidential and can be returned to the school or the YMCA. The application deadline is November 29th.

Families who are looking to contribute and help fulfill wishes are encouraged to visit the YMCA lobby for ornaments from the Tree of Giving.
