BOOK FAIR – Cathy Ducherer- Librarian
Our Fall Book Fair was a huge success! We had $2555.75 in sales! Of this we get $1277.00 towards the purchase of new books for our library! Thanks to all who supported our Fair!
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.
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.
School pictures from retakes are due Wednesday, November 27th, if you are submitting your order through the school. If you are ordering online, you can submit your order after this date.
