Principal's Note - November 17, 2017


Good afternoon,

I hope you had a wonderful week. 

We celebrated Veterans Day last Friday. Although the weather did not cooperate, in the end, we were still able to hold a ceremony out in front of the flagpole. I want to thank all of our teachers and especially the Veterans Day Committee of June O’Connor, Bob Fournier, Amanda Cappon, and Nick Stellner for their hard work and flexibility with this year’s program.

Today is Mismatch Day—always a favorite of our students! We will try to get a few pictures for next week’s letter.

In Our Classrooms:
     Mrs. Dishaw’s second-grade class completed a project about gratitude. They created a bulletin board for all to see their thoughts. Many students are thankful for their families, friends, and communities.
     First- and second-grade students make weekly visits to Crescent Point to read to its residents. This annual tradition here at NCS is truly appreciated by our senior citizens.
     Our students have been busy in music class lately. A group of fourth-grade students are getting ready to sing at a Providence Bruins game on December 1st. Everyone has started work on the annual Winter Concert. The concert will be on December 15th . Please come for a fantastic show!
     Mrs. Horner’s mathematicians are working on counting skills and came down to my office to show off their hard work. It was very impressive what they were able to accomplish and how they worked as a team to find the solution and present their answer.
     Thank you to our students, teachers, and staff for the effort that are putting in this year!

Our big week is HERE!!!!!
Last weeks Friday folder was probably a little overwhelming! Fun Pasta, Batteries, and Shop and Bop notices were all in there. Please pick and choose what you participate in, we know it is a lot but also that the holidays are creeping up on us so we are striking while the iron is hot. The PTA raises about $112 dollars per student each year to be given right back to the school for so many different uses, assemblies, subscriptions, field trips etc. Choose how you would like to participate and all the pieces will fall into place :) Our last fundraiser of 2017 will be our wreath sale which will come home soon and after that we have a few free family events coming up.
We are so excited for this event. We are up to 18 vendors and have 17 Key club kids to help out with the kiddos. This will be a SOCIAL event. Kids can hang out with kids and parents with parents. Please come take advantage it will be a fun FESTIVE atmosphere for all and a welcome break from the chilly weather. This event is open to the public as well so feel free to bring a friend.
I'm keeping it short this week, really hoping to fill the school with people and CHEER tonight!!!
Have a Great Day!
