For the Kingdom, From the Kingdom-

We've created some videos to share with our NCES families. We know that this will be a very unusual start to the year, but we are determined to ensure that our students feel safe, supported and engaged! We look forward to seeing them during upcoming social opportunities and in their synchronous class instruction!

New Items to Review:

Student Item Pick Up Schedule

We have created 'care packages' for our students that include welcome letters, workbooks, and other supplemental materials that students may need to be successful during NTI 2.0. We will hold a drive-through pick up on 8/20 (rain date 8/21) to distribute the items. The schedule is linked, below. Please ensure that you read the guidance at the top of the page. Every class has an assigned 20 minute block to collect their class materials and a Chromebook or hot spot, if one was requested and approved by JCPS. If you are unable to come to the school during the class block, there is an additional evening option for pick up; and a final block on 8/24 prior to NTI beginning (by appointment). If you are unable to come to the school to gather your items, please email our FRC Coordinator, to make other arrangements. We look forward to seeing our Knights!

Get to Know Special Areas and School Leadership- Social Event

We would like to invite our Knights to participate in some 'Get to Know You' events with our special areas and school leadership teams! Each class or grade has been assigned a time to drop in and visit with us. This activity is completely optional. If your meet and greet conference with the teacher conflicts with your assigned time, your student may come during any other session. We can't wait to see all of their smiling faces! The schedule for the events can be found here:
