Congratulations to NCSD’s Class of 2018 Graduates!

NCSD would like to congratulate each of these students on their accomplishments and wish them luck on their future endeavors! As NCSD’s mission states: “NCSD empowers every learner to grow, excel and be successful contributors to the local/global community.” We’r e confident these 785 graduates have been enriched with the knowledge and skills necessary to make lasting contributions wherever they end up. Congratulations and good luck!

As we celebrate this year’s graduating classes it’s important to note that NCSD’s graduation rate for the class of 2017 continued on a positive incline as reported here:  NCSD Graduation Rate has Improved 5% Over the Past 5 Years

Journey Elementary Students Perform as Living History Wax Museum

As the clock struck 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 31 in the Journey Elementary commons area, the Journey 4th graders froze. The stationary students were dressed in historical garb and some had wigs or drawn-on facial hair. Ropes, gloves, bandanas, and early 20th century bonnets served as props. But as parents, guests, and their Journey schoolmates begin filtering through the room, the 4th graders came alive and it became apparent this wasn’t an elaborate game of freeze tag – this was a Living History Wax Museum display.

The Great Wash-Off – Saturday, June 2

Wyoming Food for Thought is holding the following event next weekend:

Go get muddy – drive the back roads of Wyoming – then stop by K-Mart’s parking lot on Saturday, June 2nd for the Great Wash Off!

Students from both Kelly Walsh and Natrona County High Schools are holding a car wash where all funds raised will be given to Wyoming Food for Thought Project’s Local Solution to Hunger.

Choose your team and get in line. There will be a line for KWHS and a line for NCSH. The team that raises the most money will win the golden sponge trophy!

HOTSY will be on hand to provide the final rinse ensuring your auto is shiny and clean.

The Wash Off will run Saturday, June 2 from 11 a.m. till 3 p.m.

Reminder – Boys & Girls Clubs Closed June 4-7

NCSD’s Transportation Department would like to remind the parents of bus-riders that go to after-school Boys & Girls Clubs that the clubs will be closed from June 4-7 for their annual Spring shutdown. Our transportation department has bus riders each year that are at the bus hub waiting for a bus to the Boys and Girls Clubs during the Spring shutdown week. To avoid this please make alternate plans for your children.

Reminder – Last Day of School

The last day of school for NCSD students is Thursday, June 7.
