**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 several hundreds of dollars with just 52 households signed up and participating in this program!  This money helps 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!  
***We started out in the beginning of the year with only 1 family signed up in this program, we are now up to 52 households!  What a difference it has made!  If you have not yet signed up - please do and help out the students at NCMS!!***

 

discountcards

NCMS Booster Discount Cards are available in the NCMS main office.  The cost is $5.00 per card.  Please see the attached letter for further explanation of card sales and and where the proceeds go and what our ultimate goal is!  Thanks in advance for purchasing a NCMS Booster Discount Card!

 

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.
