Best wishes!   Have a safe, friendly and restful holiday break. . .

We are LOVING that fluffy, white stuff. . .



Granted, not everyone embraces the snow, but most of the kids love to get outdoors after lunch for some fresh air and fun. Yesterday, for instance, the fluffy white stuff turned into the perfect medium for rolling HUGE white sculptures.  Kids of all ages enjoyed the scene. They couldn't wait to get back out to the playground today!



Perhaps this is a perfect time to mention that students should come to school prepared for the weather. Snowpants, boots, hats, mittens are appropriate gear to fully enjoy winter weather. The happiest snow-time recess periods occur when everyone can participate!




The 2017 Parent Survey is still accepting responses. If you haven't taken time to share your thoughts, we hope you will take a few minutes now to complete the survey.  We hope to have input from all families.

We're preparing for our guests!


Everyone's ready for tonight's Winter Arts Festival! Families, we hope you'll join us for a special NCS seasonal event. The "Winter Birds" (pictured above) are preparing for a visual arts performance. All K-gr 5 students should be in their classrooms at 6pm.  Band and Senior Chorus meet in the music room to warm up at 6pm.   The program begins at 6:15 pm.   

The NPTO book fair is open just before and after the concert.   If you are here beforehand, we hope you'll enjoy the student art on display in the halls.   

Thank you for helping to make this a wonderful occasion for students!


Grade 6 students continue to collect spare change for their Heifer International service project. They wish to help struggling families in Asia and Africa (an area of study within their class).   You'll find a donation jar in the lobby until December 22. If you are interested in making a contribution, thank you!  Checks may be made payable to NCS.

We DO APPRECIATE your time in completing the 2017 PARENT SURVEY.  Your thoughts and feedback are valued.

2017-2018 Parent Survey

Parents and guardians:   Please take a few minutes to give us feedback about your family's thoughts about our school.   2017-2018 PARENT SURVEY


Student Message

Donate today!!!
The sixth grade class is raising money for the Heifer Project. The Heifer Project is an organization that is using the money they collect to buy animals for poor people all over the world. Some of the animals that are going to be purchased with the money they raise are chickens, goats, sheep, and also ducks to name a few. The animals are used to get food like meat, eggs, and milk. Those families will also be making  profits by selling animals and eggs. Please donate what you can! We will have cans set up around the school for you to put spare change in during  the next few weeks. Thanks for the donations, 6th grade!

Zooming Along!

From the archives: Artist, Trevor B

Winter sports have officially begun! The next home game is Wednesday, 11/29 vs. Bristol (girls play first at 3:45). Game dates are listed on our website, SEE THE FAMILY CALENDAR, and game information is updated there regularly.  BUSLINE LEAGUE SCHOOL ADDRESSES can also be found under the Sports tab.

Do you have these important dates on your calendar?  Thursday, December 14 is the WINTER ARTS FESTIVAL (concert) at 6:15 pm. We hope you'll be here to enjoy performances by all grade levels. In addition to choral and band performances, students will share in visual arts and movement. Plan to spend an hour with us that evening.

Thanks to the NPTO, the WINTER BOOK FAIR will be held in the library that same week (just 2 weeks away?!?!?!) on Monday, December 11-Friday, December 15 immediately before/after school. It will be open the evening of December 14 too.

Soon, you'll notice that the NPTO WISH TREE is up in the lobby. In addition to lighting up the entrance in a seasonal way, the wish tree is decorated with "ornaments" listing specific needs from classrooms, etc. If you'd like to fulfill one of those wishes, you're welcome to take an ornament and use it for a gift tag on the gift. Simply return that gift to the office before the winter break.

NO SCHOOL FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1 FOR STUDENTS.  Friday is a professional development day for teachers.  Friday, December 1 is also the last day of Trimester 1.  Report cards (K-4) and online reports (5-8) are available the following Friday, December 8.

Traditions!


A favorite tradition during the autumn season is our Thanksgiving dinner. The NCS Community Thanksgiving Celebration may be a new experience for some younger families. We're pleased to be able to invite families of our K-4 students to join us for a special meal. 

This year's menu includes turkey, stuffing, vegetables, squash and potatoes from Spears Farm, whole grain dinner rolls, cranberry or apple sauce. Families donate the desserts or cider. You may drop desserts off this afternoon or before school on Friday (if possible).


1st grade gourds
Part of the fun and excitement of planning a special event actually happens with the preparation. Students have created beautiful seasonal table decorations, the 8th grade class helps with set up, still others will be serving our guests. This cooperative effort all comes together right before K-4 families arrive! 

Another tradition that comes soon after Thanksgiving Break (11/22-11/24) is the Winter Arts Festival/Concert to be held on Thursday, December 14 at 6:15 pm. All students in grades K-5 participate along with Jr. and Sr. Bands and Sr. Chorus. 

The NPTO Book Fair will be open before/after school during the same week, December 11-15 (including Thursday evening).  Summer readers, your book bucks are worth cash at the book fair! 

Basketball season is upon us! The first game is a home game vs. St. George on Monday, Nov. 27 at 3:45 (boys play first that day). Game information appears on the NCS FAMILY CALENDAR. This calendar is updated regularly to keep you informed about scheduled/rescheduled games and practices.  GO LIONS!

Giving Tree (yes, it's almost the season!)

For the second year in a row, 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 program...it’s simple!

You can find a short 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 2 gifts (1 want and 1 need). 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 15th.

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

School Tips for Families

The following procedures are offered to help students, families, and staff start each day with minimal stress. 

DISMISSAL or BUS NOTES:   It's best to provide the school with any changes in your child's dismissal plan first thing in the morning, by 9 am.  It seems early, but this provides us with the opportunity to be sure the right people know what will be happening at the end of the day. Call, email or send a note to school with your child (563-3437 or ncourville@aos93.org).

AFTERNOON PICK UP:   If your child is to be picked up at dismissal, allow a few minutes before 2:30 to sign the book at the office window. This will mean we can call all students promptly at 2:30 before buses and help you get on your way.

ABSENCES, TARDY INFORMATION:   Please let the school know by 9 am if your child will be tardy or absent. 

Several people have expressed an interest in purchasing lion's pride gear--sweats, t-shirts.  Good news! We expect to offer these items during the fall. Information to follow.

Here are some dates to put on your calendar:

SCHOOL PICTURE DAY:   Monday morning, October 2 Lifetouch will be here for school portraits. Packages may be purchased online or via the form that was recently sent home with all students.  

Our official welcome, the OPEN HOUSE is Thursday, October 5 at 6:00 pm.  Plan to visit classrooms 6:00-6:30, with a brief assembly in the gym at 6:25. Winners of the lobby challenge will be announced at the assembly. 

NO SCHOOL on Friday, October 6 (workshop day) and Monday, October 9 (holiday).

Our school collects BOX TOPS for EDUCATION and FLIP TOPS (from cans), and you're welcome to leave either in the containers in the lobby. The flip tops are delivered to Ronald McDonald house as a service project.  The box tops help with student activities.

Nobleboro Historical Society's annual event, APPLEFEST, is Saturday, September 30th and our 8th grade students will be helping to serve both NHS and the community at the event. 

By the way, today's photo is from the 8th grade art class. (Perhaps you recognize one of the hands in the photo.) They've been talking about PEACE and creating peace posters. They say that the word WAR in Sanskrit means  "I want more cows!"  Let's end this blog with, "We hope you'll have a peaceful weekend!"

















Wednesday, September 6, 2017

We're back!


WED, 9/6/2017 Today's sports--soccer and field hockey games, golf and cross country practices--are all cancelled this afternoon due to weather.   Please expect your athletes to come home according to their regularly scheduled Wednesday afternoon plans.

We hope the first week of school was a success for your family!   Here is some helpful information:
  • Homework Club will begin next week on Monday, 9/11/2017.  Students in grades 5-8 may stay for homework club on any Monday, Tuesday and Thursday throughout the school year from 2:40-3:40 pm. They should be picked up at school at 3:40 on those days.
  • Sports, meetings and other school events are posted on the NCS Family Calendar which appears on the NCS home page.  This is a good resource!  https://sites.google.com/a/aos93.org/ncs/
  • 8th grade families participating in the fall Outing Club trip should plan to attend a meeting in Mr. Williams' room on Thursday, 9/7/2017 at 6pm.
School lunch business:   Schoolbucks letters will be going home this week. If you are new to NCS, you'll receive an access code to set up a school bucks account. You may use this to pay for school meals online (there's a small bank fee to do that) or you may send lunch money directly to school with your child.  Even if you opt to pay at school, it's wise to set up the account and keep track of your child's balance.   Meals should be paid for in advance.   

If you completed a FRL application for free or reduced meals, watch for the resulting letter with your child this week.  If your child was able to take advantage of free or reduced meals last year, please remember that you MUST complete an application this year by mid September.  Applications are confidential and available through the office.   More information about paying for meals, etc. is in the NCS Student Handbook available online on our webpage/parent resources.


In case you're wondering, the pictures were taken in Mrs. Workman's class--toothpick art, grade 3.


Friday, August 25, 2017

Are you just about ready?

It's almost here!  You can tell that August is winding down. The days are warm but by evening the cool air moves in, one sign that a new school year is about to begin. The first day for everyone at NCS (K-grade 8) is WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30th. The day begins at 8am. 

Things to accomplish between now and August 30th:

  • Complete your child's online registration for 2017-2018.  Actually, this must be done BEFORE school begins. Parents, if you have not attended to this, this is a reminder. Help is available, if needed, but please do not wait until the last minute.
  • K-GR 4 ICE CREAM SOCIAL is Monday, August 28 at 6pm
  • Summer readers, it's time to find your log. Be sure to bring it to school 8/30-9/1, and turn it in to Mrs. Harriman or let her know if you completed it online. Summer Reading Details
  • Check the bus schedule on our website or in this week's LC News.  Please allow extra time for the first couple weeks of school until the schedule settles into a predictable pattern. Students of young children (K-grade 3) must have an adult waiting at the stop in the afternoon. If a 4th grade student is getting off at home without a parent at the stop, we must have permission; contact the school.
  • Let the office know if your child will take a bus to an alternate stop--daycare, etc.--in the afternoon. 
  • Get plenty of rest before your school week actually begins.
  • August 30th:  Jump out of bed, eat breakfast, head to school and have a great first day!
The school is shiny, clean and just about ready for 2017-2018. We look forward to Wednesday when the halls will be full of life and chatter again!

Friday, August 18, 2017

Things to do before school begins. . .

Online registrations have been coming in daily and if you've completed yours,THANK YOU! If not, the online 2017-2018 REGISTRATION is accessed through your Powerschool parent account. Please take time to do it now!

August!

 

Summer is in full swing, so it is hard to imagine that our fall sports are just week(s) away!   Junior high athletes and families will want to read the details below:

All students planning to participate in a sport during the 2017-2018 school year need to have a current physical (dated within the past 2 years and on file at NCS), as well as completing Powerschool school registration forms. All NCS families will receive notification to review/update your child(ren)'s school registration forms electronically. Parents can expect to receive an email notification about Powerschool registration this week. Students will only be able to participate in fall pre-season if both of these are completed prior to the practice start dates.  If you are not sure whether the physical is current, please check with your doctor's office and have a copy faxed to NCS  (207) 563-6569 or make an appointment to get one.  

Pre-season Information:

COED SOCCER grades 6-8: Practices begin on Monday, August 21, 4:30 - 6 pm. Coach - Michelle York, myork@aos93.org or 380-5235.  Players will need mouthguard, shin guards and cleats to participate.  

GIRLS FIELD HOCKEY grades 6-8: Practices begin on Monday, August 21, 3-4:30 pm. Coach - Ari Edgar, aedgar@aos93.org or 380-3165  (This is a new program for NCS and the team is open to all AOS 93 girls in grades 6-8).  Players will need mouthguard, eye protection goggles, shin guards, cleats and a field hockey stick. 

Please let Mrs. York know if you need help getting equipped for the season; there may be resources available through an outside organization.
  • The preseason practice schedules are posted on the school website calendar.
  • Game schedules are on the Sports tab on the school website.  
GOLF (grades 6-8) and CROSS COUNTRY (grades 5-8): These programs have been an option for NCS students through Great Salt Bay in previous years. This year it may be an option, however, students will have to wait until school begins to find out if spots are available as the GSB School Board recently made changes to their guidelines for students participating from other schools. Information will be shared as soon as it is available. Please email Michelle York, AD (myork@aos93.org) with questions or to get on the contact list when information becomes available.

Looking forward to a great fall season for the NCS Lions!
