Good Attendance = High Achievement

NCSD recognizes that attendance is a very important part of learning.  Our community expects students to be present and participate in class every day, just as they expect their employees to be at work. Regular, complete, and continued class attendance by students is essential to the accomplishment of their educational goals and high achievement in school. Doing well in school is great, but there are plenty of reasons to have good attendance. Check out just a few of them in this video:

NCSD Bulletin Board

The  NCSD Bulletin Board is the place where parents can find flyers regarding relevant activities, events, and opportunities for students and their families in our community. Please check back to this page each week to see the latest updates.
