NCS to Host Viewing of “Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age”: Dear Naples Parents: According to a 2015 Common Sense Media Report, kids in the United States spend an average of 6.5 hours each day on screens (not including classroom or homework screen time).

Letter from the Elementary Principal: March 24, 2017 Dear NCS Parents and Guardians: As we move from winter to spring, I wanted to make sure I took the time to pass along the schedule for the mandated 3-8 Math and English Language Arts (ELA) assessments that our students will take next week (ELA) and in May (Math). I have listed the dates on the bottom of this letter. We are pleased that there is an extended period of time (including the spring break) between exams this year.

Information on the Flu: NCS Parents: Because the health and safety of students is always our first priority, I wanted to take a minute to pass along information related to seasonal influenza (flu). The flu is an infection of the nose, throat, and lungs, and symptoms typically include a fever, a cough and/or sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, headaches and/or body aches, chills, fatigue, etc. Because the flu can be spread from one person to another, we suggest that children as well as their parents receive a vaccination each year.

Music Should Be Part of Every Child’s Academic Experience: Dear NCS Parents: On January 27 and 28, NCS hosted the 2017 Junior and Senior High All County Music Festival. For two days, our “halls were alive with the sound of music” as students from thirteen area schools played in a Concert Band, Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, and Chorus. Their presence was a reminder to everyone that music gives students the skills and opportunities needed for success in the 21 st century. By requiring students to dedicate themselves to a task, work hard, be creative, and problem solve, music helps fine-tune the talents that colleges and employers across the world desire. In addition, music is the perfect way to balance the individual with the collective. Because individuals cannot simply become better musicians by reading a book or watching a ... more >>
