Ms. Crim's Science class created a "crime scene" for the whole school to view. Nice work by the students with the details of this crime scene right before Halloween! We have some prospective Crime Scene Investigators in the future!

Preschool Family Fun Night was a great success. The weather was beautiful, the fishing was so so, the boat ride was soothing and the hot dogs and s’mores cooked over the open fire were scrumptious. On September 8, 2022 our Preschool Families met at the Nauvoo State Park for an evening of fun for our families. It was great to see our families interact with their children and other families. We wish to extend a big thank you to the Nauvoo State Park employees for providing the fishing equipment and an awesome site to fish, a lake for a ride in a boat, and the wood for the fire and many picnic tables. A big thank you also to The Burtalo family who provided boat rides around the lake and the Squire Family –Nauvoo Red Front- for organizing the Weiner Roast. Most of all, we thank our Preschool Parents for the giving of time to their child(ren). Parents are a child’s number 1 teacher. Memories created and shared are the best memories ever.

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!
