Week of January 2nd

Welcome Back!!!

I hope you all enjoyed a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of school life. It has been wonderful to not need to set an alarm clock. As I prepare mentally for us to return to school and the new year, I keep thinking of the important work we do daily with students! We have a little over half an academic year to continue making an impact with the students in our classrooms/in our building for this year. Every day and every moment is critical to their growth this year! I look forward to continuing the work to ensure that we are growing students academically, socially and emotionally. We do important work everyday! Looking forward to rocking 2019 with each of you...Team NCE all the way!!!

Please remember that if you are out, it is necessary for you to ask a friend to cover your duty for you. Subs are not ideal for helping with this duty and are suppose to leave prior to the end of afternoon car duty. We need all hands on deck for this important duty each day.


Is there an issue that is affecting the culture of your classroom (not just a few students) Ms. Loftus and Mr. Trygar have been trained in Restorative Circles and are willing to come model a circle in the classroom if you would like. Please contact one of them with specifics on the issue and potential times when the circle could take place.
