NCES Stakeholders, check out the picture of this COOL project that takes up an entire wall in our Jr. High wing! It is called, "Periodic Table of Black History." Our Jr. High students did this project with support from Mrs. Bodily and Mrs. Hubbs. Each piece of paper has a famous black person who influenced the world in a special way. I am proud of this project and our staff and students who did it!

Parents/Grandparents/Guardians - If you are picking up your child/children, please stay in the car rider line UNLESS you are directed to pull forward! We've been having a few people "jump" the line or park on the side and get their kids. We want you to stay in line to avoid accidents (which we've had a few close calls with people jumping the line) and to keep our kids/staff safe. Please pass this information along if you are having someone different picking your child up.

Notice the Change of date! Dear Nauvoo-Colusa families, On Friday, an Illinois judge ruled on a lawsuit filed by more than 700 parents across the state that challenged the state-mandated COVID-19 mitigations. For those districts named in the lawsuit, the Judge ruled against the Governor's mask mandate. Even though Nauvoo-Colusa CUSD #325 was not part of the lawsuit, the school board will most likely vote not to require students and staff members to wear masks in the school building. The school board will hold a special meeting Monday evening to vote on the mandate. However, the administration will not punish students or staff members who choose not to wear masks on Monday, February 7, 2022. It is the parent's choice if they want their children to continue to wear masks at school. Thank you for your continued support of our students, teachers, and staff. While it has been a challenging year, we will continue to push forward together. Sincerely, Kent Young Superintendent

Today was "National Learn Your Name in Morse Code Day." To celebrate, Mrs. Bodily had her science students learning Morse Code, how to communicate via Morse Code, and the history and impact Morse Code had in U.S. wars. Ms. Adkisson brought her 5th Grade students to join Mrs. Bodily's class so all could learn more about and practice using Morse Code. Thank you, Mrs. B, Ms. A, and your students for celebrating and learning together!
