Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Moving Forward Program Building

MFPRibbonCutting2WebA ribbon cutting for the Dr. Carolyn Ware Moving Forward Program Building was held last Thursday, September 1. Dr. Ware, Helen Boen, faculty, staff, and parents attended the official ceremony, with Mr. Clingman sharing about the importance and potential of the Moving Forward Program (MFP) at NCCS and in the community. The MFP is designed to support NCCS students with learning differences that have average to above average intelligence by helping them improve their academic achievement, social skills, and cognitive abilities. NCCS anticipates the effectiveness of the Moving Forward Program increasing as more services are added to the opportunities already offered. The program is unique in its offerings and comprehensive reach of students and their needs and it is one of the many ways NCCS strives to serve its student body more effectively to prepare them for success.

NCCS Junior Excels in Brown University Summer Program

Congratulations to NCCS junior K.P. Pierre for his excellent work as a participant in the Brown University Biomedical Engineering Pre-college Program this summer. K.P. was one of only 25 students selected from across the United States to participate in this distinguished program hosted at Emory University and the CDC in Atlanta. This program gave K.P. the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the most highly regarded leaders in the fields of Neuroscience, Biotechnology and Epidemiology. K.P. was recognized and received the highest scoring grade in the program with 99%. He also received the Lab Award for his outstanding research and lab work. Outstanding job, K.P.!  (Pictured giving presentation and working at the CDC on a human brain.)

K3-4th Students “Show What They Know” Using Seesaw App!

SeesawAll of our lower school students are now able to share what’s happening in their classes with their parents through an app called Seesaw. Students can “show what they know” on the app, using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. Seesaw gives students a real audience for their work and offers parents a personalized window into their child's learning. As students independently document what they are working on in class, deeper learning and reflection are encouraged. It’s a perfect tool in which the learning process is easily captured, instead of just the end result.

Students can use Seesaw's built-in audio recording and drawing tools to reflect on what they've learned or explain how they got their answer. In turn, they are able to receive an authentic audience of their peers and parents, encouraging better work and real feedback. Through Seesaw teachers can control who can see what, and what feedback options are available. It is private, so only parents see their children’s posts and the whole class posts the teacher puts up. We are excited about the partnership among students, teachers, and families that is already being created through Seesaw and look forward to all of the ways that this new tool will empower our students as they learn.
