Last week, NCMS teachers were asked to decipher the clues presented to them in order to guess the 2014-15 middle school theme. Teachers were given a variety of different foods, license plates, and other hints to help them determine the theme. After several very close guesses, the theme was revealed: Road Trip – License to Learn. Teachers then opened their envelopes to find their team and grade-level placements for next year and were provided time to work on planning. Big changes at NCMS will include location changes – 6th grade will be moving to the top floor, 8th grade will be on the main floor, and 7th grade will be downstairs. Excitement is growing as the middle school plans for advisory, a new leadership class, and an emphasis on character education during the 2014-15 school year.
In order to plan for the great changes coming to the middle school, administrators and the SIT leadership team will host a Middle School Boot Camp this summer from August 11- 14.
