NCMS CTE teacher, Mr. Linney, is implementing a new curriculum with new activities for business classes this year, but he needs some community support to make this a success. We are in need of neckties that the men in your family no longer wear. These can be dropped off in the front office or sent to school with a student. We are very appreciative of the support!

NCMS teachers and staff are so very proud of the growth that our students made on their EOGs last year. As our students “float” to the top, teachers celebrated after a faculty meeting this week with root beer & Coke floats. Our VIF teacher, Mr. Saverino is seen enjoying his first ever taste of a float. He described it as, “Yummy!” #groundedandgrowing
