NCA Families,

This is a reminder that there is a full day of school for students on Tuesday, November 21, 2017. Mr. Borst and the Hawk's Nest crew will be hosting a holiday feast for students to enjoy at lunch time. Thanksgiving Break officially starts on Wednesday, November 22, 2017, with classes resuming on Monday November 27, 2017. We hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday break!
We would like to thank everyone who attended our Veterans Day Celebration despite the terrible weather last Thursday. Part of the Celebration was an art show featuring Patriotic works created by our Middle and High School students under the guidance of our art teacher Ms. Jan Hoffman. Clicking the link below will allow you to view the slideshow.

The North Central Academy Music Department is running a K-12 fundraiser with Century Resources. Each student is aiming to sell at least 15 items as they work toward their fundraising goal of $4000. All proceeds will be used towards the purchase of additional instruments and auditorium improvements. Through their online ordering portal, Century Resources has made it easy to share the fundraiser with friends and family who live elsewhere. During the ordering process, the customer can enter a specific student's name and grade and their purchase will be credited to that student. Customers may also choose to order without a student name and their orders will be credited to our overall fundraising goal. Online orders will be shipped directly to customers, eliminating the need for your student to deliver them! To order online, simply follow these four easy steps:

1. Go to
2. Hover over "My Current Fundraisers" and click "Students"
3. Enter your group number 47973 in the box and click on "North Central Academy Band"
4. Enjoy shopping!

You may also follow this direct link to access the online portal:

The fundraiser runs from November 2, 2017 to November 13, 2017. Products will arrive during the week of 12/4-12/8/17. Payment is due when the orders are delivered, and all checks should be made out to NCA.

We are planning special activities for the afternoon of Tuesday, October 31st. Following lunch, students who wish to wear costumes will be given an opportunity to change into them. Each classroom will celebrate with a low key activity followed by a costume parade at approximately 2:45 p.m. Parents are encouraged to come watch the parade and take their children home at its completion. A letter regarding these activities was emailed with the 10/23/17 NCA newsletter and you may also download a copy of it here.

Costume reminders:

  • 1. Children should be able to easily put on and take off their costume.
  • 2. Costumes should not block the child's vision or hinder safe walking.
  • 3. No weapons (even replica weapons) may be brought to school.
  • 4. Costumes that are provocative, revealing, sexual in nature are not allowed.
  • 5. Costumes that depict violence, alcohol, or drugs are not permitted.
  • 6. Costumes that could be offensive or perpetuate a stereotype of someone’s culture, gender, heritage, or religion are not permitted.
