Read Across America
Celebrating Dr. Seuss' Birthday, NCE will be:
- Decorating our classroom doors
- Taking the Readers Oath
- Making and wearing Cat in the Hat bows
- Checking out and reading Dr. Seuss books
- We have Dr. Seuss word searches, Birthday trivia, and McBoing Boing mazes
- We will also have a visit from the Cat in the Hat
- Parents are invited to campus to read a story to a class
NEA says the best way to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday is to read to a child. Ms. McCormick says we should celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday everyday! Reading to children fosters the love of reading and a life-time love of learning.
Two New Library Aides Join the Team!
After hours of lunch recesses given up, we had a few student train, write essays, and take written and computer tests to show their knowledge and dedication to becoming a library aide.
I would like to take this moment and Welcome Two New Library Aides to the Team! They are:
Ashleigh Weinstock and Adam Peters!
Congratulations and I look forward to seeing you Tuesdays and Thursdays for work.
WE BROUGHT THE WORLD TO OUR STUDENTS!
I am pleased to announce that NCE has access to WORLDBOOK online and a new set of encyclopedias!
Look for user name and password in the PTA Newsletter. This new and exciting program teaches students while they play. You cannot ask for a better program. Feel free to click on the link to the right.
New Books in the House!
Scholastic Dollars At Work!
Parents not only prepared their children for a summer of reading, their participation brought new books to the school library. Ms. McCormick has them displayed on the stacks so students can see the impact the Book Fair made in buying books for the library. Students are encouraged to browse and choose new books to read this fall.
A special shout-out to Linda Colleran, Stacey Kwasizur, Darlene Micheleson, Bahar Ghafouri, and Naz Alibhai for helping to get all the books ready for check-out. Their volunteer work made it possible to get the books into the hands of NCE students. Thank you!
New & Returning Library Aides
Tara Zadeh, Wiktoria Grabowiec, Austin Pak, Imogen Gie, Rod Oskouian, Alisa Tognoli, Dakota Lobel, and Niaz Namdar.
These 4th & 5th graders wrote an essay, stayed after school two days for training, and took a test to become the newest members of our Library Team.
Continuing Library Aides are Chloe Wong, Declan Pene, Sebastian Carrillo, Jenna Delaney, Maya Galante, Ryann McTague, and Hayden Fundament. Hayden and Sebastian are in their third year as aides. The NCE library has benefitted from their hard work and dedication. Thank you, Guys!
The NCE school library has over 11,000 books consisting of Easy Reader & Picture, Fiction, Nonfiction, Reference, and Paperback books supporting the Accelerated Reader Program. The majority of our collection is hardcover and we use the Dewey Decimal System in our nonfiction section.
A permission slip is required before a Library Card can be issued. The permission slips are given to students the first week of visits or as they enroll into the school. Students may pick up a form from the library or you may print out a copy from the attachments. This permission slip explains the rules of the library, outlines the parents' financial obligations, and makes suggestions regarding books.
Please look for this permission slip among the many that come home at the beginning of the academic year. Without this signed document, library cards will not be honored.
See "Library Locker;" Word document permission slip to print out a flyer to sign.
