Great season volleyball team! A quick reminder that the girls should turn in their jersey and pick up some end of season packets from Coach Purdham on Thursday or Friday (whichever day they are here) after school. Also, if you haven't paid your $12 tee shirt fee, please do so by the end of the week. Thank you! Go Pioneers!
Hello, this is Kaleb Walker the Dean of Students and Activities Director at NCMS. I am reaching out to all of the male students today to remind the 7th and 8th grade boys that basketball practice is starting this Wednesday the 24th at 3:45pm in the middle school gym. Although we are in the Orange tier, we are still able to have all basketball players report to practice even on their “home” day of school, so players that are not physically in school are able to attend practice. Players reporting to practice on their home day will need to enter the main school doors at 3:40pm to allow students leaving the building to dismiss and temperature checks will then take place as they enter the building. Now that NCPS is operating under the Orange Tier, all athletes and coaches will be required to wear masks throughout practice and any time on school grounds. At this time 6th grade players will not be allowed to practice with the 7th and 8th grade teams but I will be pushing out information regarding Nebraska City Recreation opportunities for those 6th graders interested in playing basketball. I hope everyone is enjoying their time off and if you have any questions please feel free to contact the middle school. Go Pioneers!

Hello volleyball family. A few things about next weeks Middle School Volleyball game on 9/28/20 in Platteview starting at 4pm. They use an electronic ticketing service for all of their contests that MUST be purchased in advance. They have allotted 58 total tickets to Pioneer fans. With the number of girls on the team, this is not a lot per player. I am asking you to limit your attendance to no more than 2 people and try to have only one person watch each player (even then some will not be able to attend) as a way to have at least one person watch their athlete. Here is the link to the online ticketing https://phs.springfieldplatteview.org/Tickets-and-Activity-Cards , be sure to select "Junior High volleyball vs. Nebraska City" and use the code visitorpcvb . If you have questions please feel free to contact the middle school. Go Pioneers!
