New Castle Middle School
Counseling Survey
 
The New Castle Counseling department is applying for the Lilly Endowment's Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 students grant program.  The aim of the Counseling Initiative is to increase significantly the number of K - 12 students in Indiana who are emotionally healthy, realize academic success, and are career ready to compete and prosper in the global society in which they will live and work.  
 
As a part of our grant application we need to survey staff, parents and students to identify areas of need.  Please complete this survey by March 31, 2017.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated as we work to secure funds to enhance our current K - 12 counseling program.
We will be working with school administrators to have this completed with the students.

PowerSchool Parent logon is now Single Sign On.  You will still use the Parent Portal link on the left - but you will need to follow the instructions at this link to create your new account (this will open in a new window).  Everyone must create a new account.  You will now be able to use ONE log on for multiple students.

 

To continue to help us balance our school populations, it does benefit us for you to attend registration to register your children. All students should be enrolled during registration.

 

**IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ**

It has been brought to our attention that there are several vehicles being driven too fast in the front drive-through lane of the school during pickup and drop off times. These are isolated incidents but nonetheless, NCMS feels it is necessary to remind anyone using the front drive, or staff parking lot, for picking up or dropping off students - to please watch your speed!  

 

Kroger community rewards

KROGER PLUS CARD FAMILIES - PLEASE READ!

If you shop at Kroger and have a Kroger Plus Card (or sign up to get one now!), have you signed up yet for Kroger Community Rewards for New Castle Middle School??  So far NCMS has received over $500 with just 34 households signed up and participating in this program!  That's over $500 to help NCMS in many ways.  Imagine how much our school could benefit from this program if ALL of our Kroger Plus card holders (parents, guardians, grandparents, friends, etc.) would sign up and join by linking your Plus card to our school and help us earn Rewards Money!!  You will first need a Kroger Plus card (if you don't have one - please go apply for a Plus card and sign up for the program!); you will then need to go to Kroger.com and select the register button, enter your information and "Create Account".  Please make sure you add your Kroger Plus Card number when registering your digital account.  Your Plus Card number is required when signing up for Community Rewards so that your transactions apply to New Castle Middle School.  Once you are signed in to your account, scroll down to the "Community Rewards" link and select "Enroll Now".  You can search for New Castle Middle School, or to make things easier, they will ask for a "NPO #" of the organization you wish to support; New Castle Middle School's NPO number is 47873, then select "Save" and you're done!  Here is the link to the original information sheet that was sent out with the beginning of the year newsletter if you would like to review it.  Thank you in advance for supporting New Castle Middle School in this wonderful program!

food4kids 

In collaboration with Little Blessings Church, we at NCMS have started a Food 4 Kids Program.  The program will provide snacks once a week for students to take home on Friday afternoons FREE OF CHARGE!  

 

By choosing to enroll, the School's Food 4 Kids coordinator will distribute preassembled bags to your child once a week.  The Program will continue until school ends or you desire to end your child's membership.

 

There are forms available in the office at the middle school or by clicking this link you may download, print and fill out your own form.  Return the form to the NCMS MAIN OFFICE in order to receive the snack bag.

 

We encourage you to take advantage of this program for your child.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Jennifer Davis at This email address is being protected from spambots.
