2018/2019 School Year

Welcome to the North Dickinson County School web-page. It is my sincere hope that students will have a successful and rewarding school experience. The community, staff and Board of Education has provided our students with many opportunities to grow accademically, socially, and physically. Our school staff is made up of many caring and dedicated people who will work very hard to give the best educational experience possible. In return, we ask our students to put forth their best effort in all of their classes and get involved in school activities.

If there is any way I can help you during the school year, please be sure to ask; my door is always open.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Angel R. Inglese
Superintedent/Principal

Thank you to everyone who sold items or purchased items from our Fall fundraiser.  We really appreciate your support!
Please remember to save all of your Super One and Tadych's Econo Foods receipts to send into school.  Every penny helps out our PTO projects.  A few items on the list for this year: purchasing some small and large motor play items for our kindergarten classroom, helping teachers with added classroom costs, an elementary movie day, prizes for middle school and high school game night, some new playground toys and so much more!  We could do none of this without your support! Thank you so much!

ASVAB
By: Mrs. Angie Jungwirth

Most of the 11th grade students took the ASVAB test in October. On October 23rd a representative from the ASVAB testing service gave students their results and helped students interpret and understand their results. The students were also given access to an on-line tool that will help them match their interests with their abilities. Each student received a copy of his/her results. Please ask your child to see his/her ASVAB results and to explain them to you. Additional copies of test results will be placed in each student’s file at the school.

Reminder: Parents of Seniors:

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFSA) is available now for parents to fill out. All students planning to attend college should fill out a FASFA in order to determine eligibility for federal and state aid for college. As a reminder, for the 2019–20 FAFSA, students will be required to report income information from the 2017 year, rather than their 2018 income information. Please contact Angie Jungwirth if you have questions or would like help completing and submitting the FASFA.
