NCS, students statewide pick 'Jangles: A Big Fish Story'
          NCS students in grades kindergarten through Grade 4 voted for "Jangles: A Big Fish Story" as their top pick for the 2014 Chickadee Award. It was most popular among 10 books across Maine as well as at Nobleboro Central School!
          Dozens of NCS students participated in picking the 2013-14 Chickadee Award winner. They listened to read-alouds for two months then chose their favorites from a special ballot. In the end, NCS students chose David Shannon's beautiful tall tale "Jangles: A Big Fish Story" as their top choice.
          Voting at NCS, by grade, was as follows: Jangles, 22; Mrs. Harkness and the Panda, 16; The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, 15; Randy Riley's Really Big Hit, 7; Too Tall Houses, 4; Step Gently Out, 1; The Princess and the Packet of Frozen Peas, 1; Black Dog, 1; Infinity and Me, 1; Lost and Found, 0.

     THE EASTER EGG...Kindergartners listened to a read-aloud of 
the book "The Easter Egg," written and illustrated by Jan Brett. They 
then made their own egg creations. Some made drawings and colored eggs, while others wrote letters to the Easter Bunny.

'Doll Bones' featured at
NCS Literary Lunch
    Students in Grades 5-8 are listening to a read-aloud of the creepy book "Doll Bones" in the latest round of Literary Lunch in the NCS Library. Jen Betts from Skidompha Public Library in Damariscotta is reading aloud from the popular novel while about a dozen students eat lunch.

     In honor of the March 2 birthday of Dr. Seuss, kindergartners enjoyed making and eating green eggs and ham March 7 in the library! 
     A special thanks to our Guidance Counselor Ms. Renaud, kindergarten teacher Ms. Powell, and Cam and Kaleigh from Kieve for helping with the green eggs & ham breakfast.
