Important Info/Updates:

  • Delay in sending Report Cards: There is a state wide issue that we are trying to resolve related to PowerTeacher Pro. Our Testing and Accountability department has worked on a schedule to support schools/teachers in a process to make sure grades are calculated and reported correctly. CCS's goal is to have all report cards sent home no later than Wednesday, February 6th.

  • Home Connect Letters should be sent home to families. Please be prepared to send home with report cards. If you need assistance with this, please see ask a colleague or check in with Mandy or Brittany.

  • Access Testing is coming to NCE soon! February 4th, 5th, & 6th (Grades 1-5) and February 7th & 8th (K) See more information about testing here. Thank you to our ESL team for helping to make this a smooth process.

  • Tuesday, January 29th is our staff meeting and our first Digital Technology PD session! We are grateful for our teacher leaders who are presenting on Tuesday. Everyone who completed the preference survey was given their first choice for our January session and their second choice for the February session! Thank you for taking the time to answer those quick questions. After we all come together as a whole group to discuss a few brief items at 3:15, we'll breakout into groups for the technology PD. Here is the list of what session you will be attending in January and February. This document will be updated with room numbers and links as Tuesday rolls around.
