NCCAES Parent Newsletter
NCCAE Weekly Updates from the Parenting Team
Fall Break is Almost here!
All NCCAE parents and families will begin receiving access to this weekly digital newsletter with updates and announcements that would normally go home in our Parent Communication Folders. Due to the need to significantly reduce school printing costs, the majority of announcements will now be sent out via parent emails, parent calls, posted on our school social media and placed on our school website.
