Dear SPARKS Parents,
The month of November is filled with reflection and gratitude. As I begin to reflect back to the beginning of the school year and now, I am in awe of how excited our students are to be an NCE Spark. I am filled with so much gratitude for each and every one of our students. We wish to thank you for your continued support throughout the school year. Our commitment to you and your student is very important to us. We are dedicated to providing your student with quality education and service. Thank you for trusting us and committing to North Central Elementary. Please take the time this break to remind your SPARKS that we are all extremely grateful for them and enjoy their presence on our campus.
Have an amazing Fall Break. See you all bright and early Monday, November 29th.
Ms. Vanessa López
Elementary Director of School Operations
Our theme for the month of November is Gratitude, our SPARK value this month is Self Awareness. We are focusing on both our theme and value by showing gratitude for our hard-working custodian staff.
During the month of November, students will be asked to become more aware of their actions as it pertains to the upkeep of their school. From the classroom to the halls, we will be taking the time to clean up our campus. If you wish to support with a donation we are asking for donations of the following items to aid in this month’s mission;
• Swiffer Wet Jet Pads
• Paper towels
• Magic Erasers
• 6 Swiffer Wet Jets
• Hand Held Vacuums
These items can be sent to school with your child or left at our front office.
As always we appreciate your support!
