I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  “STEAM Scream Corner” is a new segment that I will provide each month on this website.  It will include updates, recognitions and information that will keep everybody up-to-speed and/or in the communication loop with many things at NCA.  It cannot be all-inclusive of course, since there is so much occurring, but it is another means for myself to emphasize notable happenings at NCA.  STEAM Scream is my creative option for “Shout Outs,” about so many things cool about NCA.

You will undoubtedly learn so much more about our new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) school initiative throughout the school year so I won’t take too much time in this corner to elaborate much further other than to say…..  Soooooo awesome for students!

I have a very IMPORTANT date to share with everyone…. Thursday, August 28 at 7:00 PM will be the Director’s Welcome, formerly Ice Cream Social, program for all students in grades 7-12.  This will be an important night as we will discuss the changes in regards to attendance, classes, credits, and other programming.  This is also the time in which students and parents can meet their teachers, receive their schedules, confirm transportation service, and pay for locks, meals and otherwise.  Improved attendance and punctuality is an emphasized goal for 2014-2015.  This is the first opportunity for all of us to role-model for our students the importance of being punctual and responsible participants in learning. This is a significant night of information.

Cross Country is right around the corner.  Ideally, I would like for every student to join due to the many benefits of participation… improved wellness, social development, academic improvement, improved attendance etc….  Here is your chance… We will have an informational cross country meeting on Tuesday, August 5th beginning at 5:00 PM in room 216.  All we ask is that you attend, meet the new coaches, and make your decision with all the information.  This is such an awesome opportunity.  We had 20+ students participate last year, I would love to see 50 students representing the black and red of the NCA Spartans this season.  We have great meets on the schedule.  Do something healthy and engaging, please don’t sit around and waste this opportunity!

Continue to have a great summer.  I can’t wait to see you all and get this year started.
