Just a reminder, there is no school on Monday 5/29. Enjoy your three day Memorial Day weekend!
Due to the Mackinaw Island field trip being on our next scheduled practice, the Boy's Running Club is officially concluded for this year. We hope everyone has an awesome time on the trip!
North Central Academy would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank You" to all of the First Responder's who took time out of their busy schedules to attend our luncheon. The event was a big success with representatives from Star Township Fire and Rescue, Otsego County EMS, Antrim County Ambulance Authority, Antrim County Sheriff, Michigan State Police, Mancelona Fire and Rescue, and South Torch Lake Fire and Rescue joining us for the afternoon. The NCA Advanced Choir treated everyone in attendance to a special performance of "Say Something" and an acapella rendition of "Mr. Sandman". A great time was had by all in attendance and we look forward to hosting the event again during the 2017-2018 school year!
There are lots of great things happening at NCA this week!

Classroom Salute

Recently, Joe Charlevoix with 7 & 4 News visited North Central Academy to check out some of the great things that NCA students are doing. Mrs. Hook's first and second graders were the first class to be featured on the news with their classroom salute airing this morning! The students were shown working on some fun pottery and painting projects in Ms. Hoffman's art class. Mr. Charlevoix visited several other classes while he was here, so keep your eyes peeled for more NCA students in the news!
