Due to an inventory oversight, the lunch entree for September 30th of a corn dog will be swapped out with next week's entree of chicken nuggets. The rest of the lunch of those two meals are identical. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Don't forget that Friday is pickup day for the school fundraiser items. These items can not be taken on a bus, so please make arrangements to be at the school to pick them up.
The NC Sports Boosters would like to thank the students, parents, staff, community members and local businesses who contributed in any way to our recent hog roast. We had a very successful event, serving around 250 people and raising almost $3500 for our school. Whether you sold tickets, donated a dessert, worked at the event, donated financially or just came and enjoyed an evening with friends, it all added up to a successful night. Thank you to all!
Congrats to our first "Reading Counts" award winners! We honored them with certificates from Mrs. Litchfield on 9/21/2022 during Viking Time. Pictured from left to right: Charlie Shurtleff, Grant Squire, Colton Schmitz, Delaynie Schmitz, Craig Bodily, and Talmage Squire. Keep up the reading and learning, Vikings!
