Principal's message

August 2017

Dear Parents,

We are a school that lives by it's mission statement; "Learning and leading.  Every one.  Every day."  We are developing leaders and ensuring that our students have the skills to make meaningful contributions within their lives.  Every person in our school is considered a leader and is encouraged to demonstrate leadership in their own specific ways. It's important for our students to understand that leadership isn't based on a title or position, but rather a choice to act and make a difference.  Students at NCES will learn to lead themselves through practicing the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  These are the timeless universal principles of leadership developed by Stephen R. Covey.    

During the month of September your child will be learning all about Habit 1: Be Proactive.  Habit 1 revolves around the idea that I am in charge of myself. I am responsible. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do n
ot blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.  It's all about taking ownership and initiative in your life.

Throughout the school year I would encourage you to communicate with your child's teacher and review his/her grades through the FOCUS Parent Portal on a consistent basis.  If we are all working together, your child will have a successful year.  We are here to serve you and provide your child with the best possible education.  If there is anything that you need, please don't hesitate to reach out to someone at Narcoossee Elementary for assistance.

Osceola School District Celebrating
Kindness Month
On February 24, 2017 several staff members from NCES shared kindness with members of the community as they dropped off their children to school.  As they held up signs with inspirational messages, parents and drivers going by the school honked their horns, waved back, gave them a "thumbs up", and said thank you for starting their day out on a positive note.  A huge thank you to all of the Narcoossee Elementary staff for continuing to spread and share random acts of kindness.  Let's keep this going and spread kindness through our district and community.
