Count and count some more!

Counting is one of the best ways to support your child at home. Each month, tips on counting will be featured in the newsletter. Try to find 5 minutes throughout the day to practice counting! Car line, bus stop, brushing teeth, grocery shopping, during commercials, cooking dinner, or almost any other time is the perfect time to count!

Family Task and Discussion: Practice counting each day. Here are some possible suggestions:

  • Kindergarten: Count forward to 10 and backwards from 10
  • 1st Grade: Count to 100 starting at any number
  • 2nd Grade: Count to 200 starting at any number, forwards and backwards
  • 3rd Grade: Skip count by 2s, 5, and 10s
  • 4th & 5th Grade: Skip count by any number (2-10)

Do you notice the suggestions are too easy or too hard for your child? Feel free to use suggestions from other grade levels to meet your child's needs.

Watch for the Facebook post on Wednesday to share when and how you counted!

Who Let The Dogs In?!

We will have two therapy dogs at NCE this school year!

Both Ms. Aviola and Officer Lisa (and their dogs) have gone through extensive training and certification to have their dogs work with our students.

Below you will find some information about our therapy dogs, as well as links to an opt out form if you would not like for your child to come in contact with the dogs. Hard copies were also sent home at the beginning of the year. Feel free to call Ms. Aviola if you have any questions!

Breakfast and Lunch are provided FREE OF CHARGE for all students!

All students will have access to a free breakfast and lunch every day!

Be mindful that even if your child brings breakfast and/or lunch with them, we CANNOT DENY students access to the meals that we have in school, so if you do not want them to eat a school breakfast/lunch or have concerns about the possibility of them eating a double lunch (the one that bring from home and what we offer in school) and ending up with a tummy ache, please have that conversation with your scholar. :-)
