Stop the Bleed

At the teacher in-service on November 6th, Philip Rozic from UPMC presented the Stop the Bleed initiative to all NCASD faculty and staff. We are now more prepared than ever to administer live-saving measures should our district ever face an emergency. We would like to extend our gratitude to Mr. Rozic, UPMC, the New Castle Fire Department, the New Castle Police Department, and STAT MedEvac. Please click HERE to view photos from the training.

The Kindness Rock Project

Last school year, Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer’s students were inspired after one of their peers brought a painted rock to school one day and shared it with the class. The rock was painted with a cat and an inspirational message that said “Smile.” On the back of the rock was a hashtag, #thekindnessrockproject, and the words “keep or pass along for someone to find.” The students became very curious and began asking questions. Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer realized that this would be a great opportunity to get their students involved in a project that promoted positivity and mindfulness. They had the students turn this into a research assignment and find out exactly why receiving a positive message could change a person’s mindset.
