LOCAL TRACK MEET – May 24th

            Our local track and field day (Thursday, May 24th) is fast approaching and in order to make this day a success we need at least 1 volunteer for each class. Grade 7-12 will run their events in the morning and Elementary will go in the afternoon   K-6 students will have an early lunch at 11:30 and then will meet at 12:00 in the gym for instructions and start promptly at 12:15.  Parents should call the office if they can help out.  There will be a booth on that day in the Home Ec. Room and hot dogs for sale at 11:30.  Other snacks for sale will be freezies, candy bags, chips, juice, water, ice cream sandwiches and other regular booth items.  There is also a good selection of drinks and snacks in the vending machine.

            Please make sure your child is wearing appropriate clothing for the weather and appropriate footwear for running races.  Other items that your child might need are a hat, sunscreen, bug spray, a blanket and a water bottle.

           

            On Tuesday, June 5th, the grade 4,5 and 6 students will be competing in the Tri-meet hosted by Lashburn.  They will compete against students from Lashburn and Maidstone.

 

IMPORTANT

All bus parents should have received a bus transportation form that needs to be filled out and returned to the school by May 15th in order for the bussing department to make sure all their information is up to date.

 

Caution!  Caution!                                                                                                    Due to severe allergies among the students at NCS, the school requires that everyone avoid bringing any items with nut products, eggs that are not baked into an item or animals to the school.   Our students' health depends on your cooperation.  Thank you.

It's time to butt out!

Did you know about 4.5 trillion cigarettes are littered each year, worldwide? These filters are not biodegradable and can take up to 10 years to break down in the environment.

Did you know cigarette filters are made of cellulose acetate, the same plastic fibers used in sunglasses frames? 

Did you know 32% of storm drain litter is cigarette butts? These butts then enter our waterways and often get eaten by various animals who mistake them for food.

Now that you know, be part of the solution.
