November/December Edition (Volume 129, Issue 4)
From the Principal
Rick Fauss will be serving as the interim superintendent/principal beginning December 1st and will continue through the end of the year. He is excited to be a part of the school community and I know you will all welcome him.
The School Board will also begin advertising for a permanent superintendent/principal beginning in January. The hopes are that an individual will be selected by April so they can become familiar with the NCC climate and culture in preparation for officially starting on July 1.
