Say Something Week / Spirit Week

National Say Something week was February 25-March 1. New Carlisle Elementary took part in this promise again this year. This was NCES third year to be involved in Say Something Week. The Say Something pledge raises awareness and educates students on what to do if a fellow classmate acts out, says something threatening and/ or could be a danger to themselves or others. During this week we encourage and teach our students to say something to a trusted adult to prevent a school or student tragedy. Say Something Week is an initiative that stemmed from the Sandy Hook Tragedy.


We are participating at the 4th and 5th Grade building because we see how social media has a big impact on our students. We want students to be able to know it is okay to speak up to help out a friend or classmate. New Carlisle Elementary also made this a spirit week to bring more attention to this cause. Our spirit week was also focused around doing acts of kindness each day. We hope by having students show an act of kindness to others they will be thinking of others and making this a life choice. The children will learn to pay attention to others, be kind and say something when needed.

Communication

REMIND Text App

We have a district REMIND text app this year. As a family in our school district, you are already enrolled in this service. This will be helpful when you need to receive school delays and cancellations, safety information and other district related messages. The Remind App provides individual building access which means you will also get information that only applies to NCES. If your number is not on the list or you are not receiving messages, please let the office know and we will happily add your information to the Remind system. Thank you.

Instagram

NCES has an Instagram account. We had 221 followers last month and now we have 243. Please follow us to see the fun and educational happenings at New Carlisle Elementary School. Tell your friends and family to join us too. I try to post pictures almost daily.

Dismissal at NCES


Dismissal - We encourage all students to be picked up using the curb lane. This is a safety concern for our students. This way you do not have to get out of your car, students can enter the car right from the curb and there is no need for kids crossing into the parking lot.


You are welcome to park your car and walk to the doors or to the light pole at the end of the cross walk. Your student will get crossed to you safely at the light pole. From there you will be able to walk your child safely to your car. WE DO NOT LET STUDENTS WALK ACROSS THE PARKING LOT ON THEIR OWN.


Thank you for your cooperation. Our students safety is our highest concern.

Positive Referrals


The students at NCES are able to receive positive referrals from staff for going above and beyond. We are so proud of our students who have earned positive referrals during the month of February.

When students receive a positive referral their photo is taken, the receive a bracelet, candy or a pencil. Additionally, students receiving positive referrals are honored on our Chrome cast screen with their photos scrolling on the office TV all day everyday!


We hang a photo in the office and hallway of each student receiving a positive office referral and these students are also honored on our morning announcements which can be viewed on our Youtube channel. It is really exciting for our students.

Collection Corner

Plastic Caps

Wow! We have been overloaded with bottle caps. Thank you and keep them coming in. NCES along with Tecumseh Local Schools is continuing to collect the caps from plastic bottles. These caps are being collected and recycled into benches that we can put at our schools. We are using this incentive to teach our students and community to reduce, reuse, recycle. We recently sent a big box truck off to recycle with 2,000 pounds of caps! Way to go TLS! Students can bring caps into the school for tickets.

Pop Tabs


New Carlisle Elementary is continuing a school-wide collection of pop tabs. If you drink pop at home and would send the tabs in with your child we would greatly appreciate them. We also would accept dog/cat food tabs and canned food tabs. Thank you for helping with this cause. The children are really excited to help out.

Boxtops for Education

Please continue to send in Boxtops for Education. We use these funds to help buy items for the children to help support their activities that take place here at NCES. Please keep saving and sending the Boxtops and Campbell’s label proofs into school as you collect them.
