Only a few tickets remain!
  Over 400 ready to Sail Away to Margaritaville
An island getaway  is just what we need after our long, cold winter! Join the 400+ guests who have already registered to Sail Away to Margaritaville at the Lion's Mane Event next Saturday night.  There are only a few spots left, so don’t miss the boat!  

Our guests will enjoy a spectacular evening filled with friends, fine tropical delights and wonderful auction and raffle items. There are many details in the works to ensure a perfect evening. We want you to be wowed!

Although we are still busy adding last-minute auction items and packages, we have put together a sneak preview of all that’s available for you.  Take a look and make plans to win the items you really want!

Remember the “Express Pay” option is available to all guests upon registration.  We'll take your credit card information , and charge all purchases of games, raffle tickets, and auction items to your paddle number.  At the close of the evening, all you'll need to do is pick-up your paid receipt at the check-out desk.  

Anne Schnell wins second place
in Rotary Speech Contest
On Monday, senior Anne Schnell took second place in the Chardon Rotary's Annual Speech for her speech on the importance of the arts.
According to Performing Arts Department chairperson Ms. Shirley Ivancic Stall, who coaches NDCL's contest participants, Anne finished only one point behind the first-place winner on a 300-point scale. Not surprisingly, Anne plans to use the $100 prize to purchase new acrylic paints.

Remember to reset NetClassroom
to check 4th quarter academic progress
We mailed third-quarter report cards earlier this week. In the unlikely event of an error on a report card, please notify Assistant Principal Mrs. Denice Teeples no later than March 27.
For questions about specific grades on your child’s report card, please contact teachers directly by phone or email. For other concerns about academic performance, your child’s guidance counselor is an important resource.
We encourage students and parents to regularly use NetClassroom to track academic progress. Be sure to reset your home page to show information for Quarter 4. To do this, click My Settings in the upper right of the home page and then use the drop-down for Customize Home Page to enable Quarter 4.   
Contact Mrs. Teeples if you are experiencing any problems with NetClassroom.

Tuition assistance applications due April 15
Parents of current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors  who wish to apply for need-based tuition assistance for 2015-2016 must complete the online FACTS grant and aid application and submit their 2014 federal tax returns by April 15.
This application requirement applies to all families who seek aid, including those already receiving assistance. 

Prom set for May 23 at Windows on River
NDCL's Senior Class will host Prom 2015 on Saturday, May 23, from 7:00 to 11:00 PM at Windows on the River. After-Prom will follow at Fun 'N' Stuff from 12:00 to 3:00 AM.
As you are looking forward to Prom and thinking about what to wear, we encourage students and parents to choose sensible clothing for this school-sponsored dance. Immodest or extravagantly expensive clothes are inappropriate because they are inconsistent with our mission and core values.
A prom packet is now available online. Registration will open on Saturday, May 2. Questions should be directed to Student Council co-adviser and art teacher Ms. Susan Ancheta.
