LOOKING FOR SUPPLIES

The school library could use the following items if you have any that you no longer want or need:

Narrow ribbons, stickers (such as you get free in the mail), cardstock or other heavier paper and pool noodles. 

 

ATTENTION

Please be advised that effective Monday, October 21, 2019, NCS will be locking all exterior doors between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:15 with the exception of the main school doors. Visitors will be required to check in with the school office. We are asking parents to drop off their children at the main doors if they are arriving late. This will bring us in line with best practices and with school division policy.

 

Reminder that the school only has two microwaves available for student use. Access to the microwaves is not always available and at times may have to be limited. Please consider sending a thermos for hot lunches.

 

 

Art Show & Auction

Fine Arts 10, 11 & 12 Showcase on Wednesday, January 9, 2020

Art Show at 7:00 pm

Auction at 8:00 pm

LITTLE FREE LIBRARY

We have started a "Little Free Library" at the school.  Students may take a book to keep.  If they have one that they want to put in its place, that is great, but not required. 

Most of the books are geared towards teenagers, but as we get books donated or are culled from the library, it will be filled with all different kinds of books.  If you have any books at home that would be suitable and you would like to donate them, we would very much appreciate it.

 

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.
