The NB Local Schools Board of Education held their November meeting on Tuesday evening. All board members and administrators were present for the 27 minute meeting.
Superintendent Ryan Delaney:
-Base coat of blacktop was applied during the few recent days that were “warmer” to the new parking area at the NBHS complex. Top coat will wait until spring.
-There is an activity or something going on every day until December 22.
NBHS Principal, Dr. Bob Falkenstein:
The NB Public Library is offering all of our students “E-cards” to access books online! We worked with Holly, Cheryl, Heather and Tammy to provide some coded usernames. They cross referenced to provide pin numbers. We will be giving students their access information later this week. The books can be read or listened to through phones, Kindles, Chromebooks or via an app called OverDrive. THANK YOU NB Library!!
All fees are now paid at the board office. This includes school fees and pay-to-play fees.
Congratulations to the NB Quiz Bowl team. Then won the District match and will advance to Regionals!
Our school safety drill will be conducted with the Department of Homeland Security in December. It will be an actual lockdown and/or evacuation drill.
Congratulations on a fine musical, Shrek! A lot of community members assist us in producing such a high quality product. Emily Meyerson and Ben Pack led the charge again, and we are grateful for their effort!
It seems likely that law will change before January 1 to allow for Graduation Pathways, such as offered to last year’s seniors. I am watching closely because we have a few students who need those pathways to graduate on time.
Powell Elementary Principal, Mrs. Jonelle Semancik:
We kicked off the month with parent teacher conferences. Thank you to the parents that came. Having a partnership with parents is an important part of a student’s education. We had a successful Book Fair at this time and as a result each classroom was able to get $50 in books.
We had our Veteran’s Day lunch which was highly attended with our Honorable Men Club leading Veteran’s to the cafeteria that was decorated by all grade levels. They were able to sit with their special friend and enjoy a meal as well as a coffee and cookie treat.
Veterans Day Celebration
Thanksgiving brought a cute as can be play from Kindergarten and other fun reader’s theater presentations and poems building wide.
In an effort to promote Tiger Pride we have implemented “Tiger Pride Fridays!” Teachers were already wearing spirit wear now we are encouraging students to do the same on Fridays. The students will walk into the school fight song being played as they are high fived from staff members.
Tiger Pride Fridays
Finally, this month’s Den of Ten will be introducing “Tiger Way” to students. The slogan is:
Be Tiger Proud!!!
Students will receive the slips pictured below for modeling this behavior across the building. On Fridays prizes will be drawn from each teacher. This is in an effort to promote positive behaviors school wide as well as promote School Pride.
Be Tiger Proud!
