Dear NOCA Families,
Dress Code: October marks the start of formal wear on Wednesdays for all students in grades K-11. Many items on back order should have been received by now. Thank you for partnering with the school on this important initiative that promotes a spirit of decorum, unity and order within the school building. Please acquaint yourself with uniform expectations by reviewing the Uniform Guide.
Picture Day: Picture Day is 10/5. There are no order forms this year. A photo proof will be sent home with students in a few weeks that contains instructions for how to order photos electronically. Once orders are completed, pictures will be delivered to the school.
Mini-College and Career Fair: On 10/7, vendors from local colleges and various post secondary career options will be on campus to visit with students in grades 9-11.
PSAT NMSQT: Sophomores and juniors will take the PSAT NMSQT on 10/12. 9th grade will receive instruction in how to navigate Naviance and work on resumes. Students in grades 9-11 will be released for early dismissal immediately following the completion of the exam.
Junior College Parent and Student Meeting: Parents and students are invited to an informational meeting on 10/18 that will help them to prepare for their college search.
Conferences: Fall Conferences are just around the corner on 10/21. There will be no school on Thursday 10/20 and Friday 10/21. Please be sure to click on the link below and sign-up to speak with your child's teacher(s).
