NGC Weekly Update
Homecoming and More
We have had a successful Homecoming Spirit Week in the NGC! The students dressed the part all week. It was great to see so much school spirit.
The Annual Homecoming Parade and Football game are tonight. The parade leaves Mulberry Elementary at 5:30pm. The football game against Walnut Hills is scheduled to kick off at 7:00pm.
Tickets for tomorrow night's Homecoming Dance are available until midnight tonight (Friday 9/30). Tickets can be purchased here. The dance will take place from 8:00pm until 11:00pm in the Milford HS Gymnasium. Students arriving after 9:00pm will not be permitted into the dance and they cannot leave until 10:30pm. Milford HS does perform a breathalyzer to randomly selected students at check-in. MHS Students are permitted to bring 1 guest (must be in HS or a recent graduate and this form must be turned in).
The end of the quarter is coming soon (10/14)! That gives students two weeks to get their grades to where they need to be. Students should be utilizing study hall and flex to get the help they need.
Food for Thought
I came across this article/opinion this week. I really liked the message it contained and the advice for our students and their families. I hope that as you read it, you might find a takeaway or two that might help your family.
I'm a 9th-grade teacher. Here's what I wish parents of freshmen would help their children understand.

Hearing and Vision Screening
Vision and Hearing screenings will be administered to all ninth grade students as required by state law. If you do not want your child screened please sign a required waiver. (See link below)
Why is it important to have your child’s vision screened? Young children with vision problems do not know the way that they see the world is not the way they should be seeing it! Without early detection and treatment, children’s vision problems can lead to permanent vision loss and learning difficulties.
Vision screening will consist of the following: Distance visual acuity - ability to see objects far away
Why is it important to have your child’s hearing screened? Hearing is important for speech, language development, reading and learning. A hearing screening can detect if your child needs further hearing testing. Even if your child has passed a hearing screening previously, their hearing can change. Hearing problems can be related to medical problems. Hearing loss is invisible and child may appear to be not paying attention.
Hearing screening will consist of the following test: Audiometry - Screening of hearing acuity.
A hearing screening only provides a snapshot of how your child performs on the day the test was administered and is not a substitute for a complete hearing evaluation by an audiologist.
You are welcome to contact the nurse to learn the screening findings. If your child does not pass the vision or hearing screening, the school nurse will send a letter to share the results and may make a recommendation for further evaluation by an eye care specialist or hearing specialist. If you have any questions about the school vision/hearing screening program please call the school nurse.
If your child fails either part of the screening, a rescreen and/or a written referral will be made.
9th grade screening will take place the week of October 24th 2022.
Cell Phones, Ear Buds, etc.
If there is an emergency where you need to speak with your child immediately, please contact the NGC Office (Mrs. Harvey) at 513-576-2278.
