We are excited to introduce the Saber Summer Spectacular, a completely revamped summer program for middle and upper school students! We continue to offer many academic classes to expand and improve on basic skills, but we have added numerous additional courses for students to experience their areas of interest. Courses include reading, writing, math, technology, cooking, drama, Tae Kwon Do, fishing… and so many more! The Saber Summer Spectacular is open to all area rising 5-12 grade students so spread the word! We will send this information out to the public next but wanted to introduce it to our Saber families first. Click here to view the course catalog and registration form. Online registration is coming soon! Contact Margie Gray with any questions.
Volunteers Needed to Stuff Envelopes
On Thursday and Friday the READ Art Show & Sale invitations will be stuffed, stamped, and sealed in Westbrook House. We would love some parent help to make this go quickly! Click here to sign up!
Tech Tip of the Week
Notifications can be distracting. You can manage these pop-ups on your laptop and your iPad to keep them from interfering with your workflow. On a Mac, go to System Preferences > Notifications and utilize the Do Not Disturb feature to set your work hours. Notifications will stop during the designated hours. On an iPad, go into your Settings and scroll down to Notifications. For both devices you can click on individual apps and customize how and when Notifications are delivered.
Technology Requirements for Rising 8th Graders
Reminder: Current 7th grade students will need a Macbook Pro or Air for 8th grade in the 2020-2021 school year at TNCS. Please see the Technology Specifications on our website for more details and direct questions to Jessica DelMonte.

Mondays are pizza days for lunch at TNCS, to benefit the athletic department. Slices of cheese and pepperoni pizza from Domino’s are available. Students place their order on sheets posted on campus. Pizza is $1.50/slice. Drinks are also available for $1.00. Both are billed to the student’s account. Cash is not accepted.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help serve pizza on Mondays, and a few Fridays, from 11:45am – 1:15. Click here to sign up to help!
