Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the 2012-2013 school
year. We hope that your child has had a relaxing and enjoyable
summer and that they return refreshed and ready to succeed. We
have worked hard over the summer to create an educational plan for your
child that will help them get the most out of their school year.
We strongly encourage you to take a
very active role in your child's academic progress. Please review
your child's course schedule with them. If you have any questions
about the classes they are taking or if you would like them to take
additional courses, please contact their school counselor.
Please monitor your child's progress
carefully. All teachers at NCCS High School put student grades on
line and update them at least every 10 days. Early in the year
your child will be given a userid and a password that will allow them to
sign in to the online grades system. To access the online
grade system, please click on the following link:
Few things are more important to the
success of a student than good parent/teacher communication.
Please keep in close contact with your child's teachers by calling them
at 298-8638 or by e-mailing them directly. A list of the NCCS high
school faculty, along with e-mail addresses and website addresses, can
be found at
Our top priority at NCCS is your
child's education. Part of that education is helping them
become well rounded individuals. Please encourage your child to
get involved with sports, music, science olympiad, reality check, drama
club, key club, or a host of other extracurricular activities that will
allow them to have fun, explore interests, and develop strong social
skills. To learn more about the clubs and teams we offer, please
contact the main office or the counseling office.
Have a great school year.
Please e-mail me at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 518-298-8638 if there is
anything I can do to help your child have successful school year.
