News & Notes: October 2014

General Information:

Important Calendar Note: School will be closed for the Provincial Basketball tournament on Friday, November 7th. The girls’ basketball tournament will be held here at Lapilo, and the boys’ soccer tournament will be held at NSI in town. Also, there will be no school on Friday, November 14th. The Staff will be attending a professional Development Conference at SIL.



Afternoon messages: If you need to get a message to your elementary student in the afternoon (about a ride home, etc.), the best option is to call the school. If you send an email, there is a chance we will not receive it in time. If you do send an email and don’t get a reply, assume your message did not reach us.
Elementary office landline: 531-4575, Digicel 7175 3255

Adult helpers:
Kindergarten – We have 14 students in kindergarten and there are times when we could use some extra help in the class. If you are able to help one or two days a week (or more!) from 10:30 – 11:30 (or at another time) please contact the elementary office.
Grade 2/3 – We would also like to get an adult helper for the 2nd/3rd grade music class which meets Mondays and Thursdays from 1:05 – 1:50. No musical talent is required for this role. We mainly need someone to help guide the students. Again, if you are willing to help, please contact the elementary office.


Jr. & Sr. High:

SAT. The SAT will be held on November 8th at the HQ conference room from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. There will be another SAT exam in May here at NCA. If you have further questions, please call the high school office.

Banquet: The banquet for grades 10 – 12 will be held on November 22. Pictures will be in the afternoon, followed by dinner in town. Parents, please remember that we have some new formal (banquet & grad.) dress code guidelines in place this year. If you don’t remember seeing them in a News and Notes edition, contact the HS office via email and we will send you the revised guidelines.
