NCA News & Notes: Apr 2012

General Information:

Field Day:  Weather permitting, Field Day will be held on April 27 in place of regular classes for all grade levels. More information about Field Day will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.

Terra Nova Achievement Testing. Our new achievement tests have arrived, but they arrived quite a bit later than we were expecting. Therefore, we have postponed achievement test week until April 16-19.



Terra Nova.  Achievement tests will be taking place Monday – Thursday mornings the week of April 16 for NCA elementary students.  Please help your children by making sure that they have plenty of sleep and a good breakfast each day of the testing.  The 1st through 6th elementary students will be testing each morning prior to recess.  If a student has been ill, make-ups will be provided in the late mornings or afternoons.

Lice Check. Rolanda Friesen, the NCA school nurse, will be doing a lice check of the elementary students on Friday, March 30.

Jr. & Sr. High: 

Terra Nova.  Grade 7-11 achievement testing will take place April 17-19. The adjusted schedule for both days is posted on the bulletin board outside the High School Office.

Field Day Practice. On the afternoons of April 18, 23, & 25 there will be field day preparation time for all students in Grades 9-12! The schedule will be somewhat adjusted on those days as well for Grades 7-12. This schedule will also be posted in the hallways of the high school.

Course Selection Forms (2011-12). Course selection forms were handed out to Grade 8-11 students at the end of Term 3. All students who are enrolling in high school next year should turn in their course selection forms by April 15. If you have questions about how to fill these out, please contact the high school office.

Families going on home assignment during the 2012-13 school year are strongly encouraged to check with the high school office before departing to get recommendations for courses while on furlough. Remember that if you are planning on home-schooling high school (Grade 9-12) courses while on furlough you will need to work with an agency that will issue credit on a transcript. A Beka, Hewitt High School, NorthStar, Keystone, and NDCDE are all agencies that have been used in the past. More information is available at the high school office.
