OneView Online Registration

Our online registration process is much easier than in the past. Remember all the paper forms we used to have? Remember having to fill out multiple forms for all your children? I do. Now you can go online and do it ONCE! You can also link you children's information. Another bonus is, if you did this process last year all you need to do this year is go back into the sight and check over the information, SAVE and SUBMIT. However, we do need you to go in ASAP to do this so the information we have on your child is accurate in our data system.

Communication

REMIND Text App

We have a district REMIND text app this year. You will not have to sign up to be a part of this communication. This will come be helpful when you need to be alerted of weather delay, safety information or other district related messages. We also have the ability for individual building access so you will also be getting information directly about NCES. However, we are still working out some of the kinks so we appreciate your patience. Thank you.

Therapy Dog Bexley

As you know, school can be as source of stress for your student. Students can find it to be confusing, scary, or just plain boring. A therapy dog just might change that!

Mrs. O’Reilly is a fourth grade intervention specialist at NCES and has worked for the district for 26 years. She and her dog Bexley spent 10 weeks in a training program called Dogtors University. This is a course in animal assisted therapy (AAT). They are qualified to visit places such as hospitals, nursing homes, and schools.

Research shows that therapy dogs in a classroom can increase student attendance and interest. It also makes the classroom experience more positive for everyone. These things lead to more success for students.

Bexley was introduced as our school therapy dog last year and he has had a positive effect on our students (and staff) at NCES! We are grateful to have the continued support of our principal, special education supervisor,
superintendent, and AAT trainers as we continue with this
program. There may be issues that would need to be
addressed, such as students with allergies, but we are
hopeful that we can find a solution to any situation that
arises.

Bexley is a golden doodle; he is a certified therapy dog that loves children. While there is no breed that is hypoallergenic, he is the next best thing. He sheds very little and as a therapy dog, is groomed on a regular basis.

We wanted to let you know that your student will be in a
school where a therapy dog is present. More information about the Dogtors program can be found at www.dogtors.com. If you have questions about Bexley, you can email Mrs. O’Reilly at brenda.oreilly@tecumsehlocal.org.

Arrival/Dismissal at NCES

Arrival - There will be NO supervision for students until 7:45am each morning. Students need to remain with parents in their cars or standing with them outside until 7:45am. If students are walking to school they need to make sure they are not coming too soon. When the doors are opened all parents are to remain outside unless you are entering through the office, the secretary will be available to help you with any questions you may have. Also, please DO NOT stop your car on the cross walk at anytime.



Dismissal - We encourage all students to be picked up using the curb lane. 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 your child up to the school or pick them up at the end of the day if you use a parking spot.

Thank you for your cooperation.

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 that earn positive referrals this year. They get their photo taken, get a bracelet, candy or a pencil and a lot of praise from the office staff as they head back to class. Their photo then gets hung in the office and hallway. They are also mentioned on the morning announcements. It is really exciting for our students.


The students who have received this honor so far this year are: Recognized for 4th Grade: Gavin Byington, Yisel Cruz, Rilie Fisher and Sam Dillon.


Recognized for 5th Grade:
Hunter Chassereau, Mariano Lopez, and Jayleen Arevalos Lara.


WAY TO GO KIDS!!!! You are the good example for others! Keep it up the great work.

Collection Corner

Plastic Caps

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 trying teaching 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 can 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.
