Good evening, Red Devil Family! Here are your announcements for the week of May 20-24, 2024. It is hard to believe, but this is the last week of school. We want to thank all our students, parents, and community members for an excellent school year! As an N-CMS faculty and staff, we are blessed to have worked with you this school year! Cafeteria, technology, and library fees must be paid by the end of the year for students to participate in extracurricular activities next school year. If your child has lost a Chromebook charger, it costs $29 to replace it. End-of-Grade testing is the focal point this week. Parents, please ensure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before and eats a good breakfast the morning of their tests. Please encourage your child to do their best! On Monday, 6th and 8th grade students are required to be on campus to take their Reading EOG assessments. 6th and 8th grade students do not need to be signed out early. Students will review for their next test in the afternoon. On Tuesday, 6th and 7th grade students are required to be on campus to test. This is the last day 6th-grade students are required to be on campus. On Wednesday, 7th and 8th grade students are required to be on campus to test. This is the last day 7th and 8th grade students are required to be on campus. Thursday and Friday are reserved for makeup tests. This is for any students who are absent on their original testing date. Students are only required to be on campus this week on the days they take an EOG test. Please note that students will be marked absent on the days they do not attend, but this will not impact their academic or promotional status. Once students are finished with all of their exams, they are finished with the school year. Only students who turned in the signed permission form by the May 15th deadline can leave school early on their last day of testing at 1:15 p.m. Otherwise, students are expected to remain in school until the normal dismissal time of 2:50 each day. May 28th and May 29th are Reteach and Retest days for students who want another chance at passing the EOG. Parents will be notified individually if their child is invited back for this. Summer School applications are still being accepted for students failing two or more classes this year. Students must pass at least three out of four of their Core Classes and three out of four EA classes to be eligible to play sports next year at N-CMS. That is all for our weekly messages.

Good evening, Red Devil Family! Here are your announcements for the week of May 13-17, 2024. This is the last whole week of school for all students. Please make sure all cafeteria, technology, and library fees are paid before the end of the school year.

Again, all students should be at school every day this week. Please make sure you return the permission slip by May 15 so your child can be dismissed at 1 p.m. on their last day of testing. Copies of the permission form are available in the main office. Starting the week of May 20th, students are not required to be in attendance on days they are not testing.

Once students are finished with all of their exams, they are finished with the school year. Before testing starts next week, please talk with your students about the importance of following instructions during testing. Failure to follow the rules set forth by the State of North Carolina can result in test misadministration. Individual students or whole classes could be forced to retake the EOG test on a different day if a misadministration occurs. Please be on time. If students arrive late to school and the test administration has started, they must wait to test or come on the makeup day. No phones, smartwatches, or electronic devices are allowed during the testing session. Please have students leave their phones and headphones at home. On Reading test day, students are not allowed to use phones, earbuds, or headphones during a testing session. If a cell phone or watch goes off during testing, it may be a test misadministration requiring the whole class to test another day. Students CANNOT talk during breaks. No food, gum, snacks, or drinks are allowed during testing. Students are allowed to bring a bottle of water. Students should not bring bookbags on their test days. Blankets are not permitted. Testing is over once the entire school has completed the testing session. In athletic news, There will be an informational meeting during school on Tuesday for any 6th and 7th-grade students interested in playing football or cheerleading next school year. Cheer tryouts will be held June 3-5, 3-4:30 p.m., at N-CMS. Students must have an updated sports physical on file to participate. That is all for our weekly announcements.
