Message from the Principal

Kerry Buell

All of us at NCES are excited to welcome back new and returning students for the 2022-23 school year.  Our first day of school for all Pre-K through 6th grade students will be on Tuesday, September 6.  Our school day hours have changed slightly for this coming year.  Our day will begin at 7:50 and end at 2:40.  For those parents who choose to transport their children, the times for drop off are 7:35-7:45 and 2:25-2:35 for pick up. Parent drop off will be at the entrance to the intermediate wing (same as last year) and pick up will be at the front loop (also same as last year).   

We are excited to introduce and welcome some new staff (and staff who have new positions):

· Mrs. Stephanie Baumler will be in a new role this year at NCES, she will be teaching 2nd grade.  Mrs. Baumler is a dual-certified teacher in Early Childhood and Childhood Education.  For the last 11 years, she has worked in many capacities at our Elementary School including long-term placements as well being the Teaching Assistant in Pre-K and the Library.  She lives here in NC with her husband and her two children who attend school at NC Jr/Sr High School.

· Miss Sara Bowman will be teaching 3rd grade this fall at NCES. She grew up and attended school here in NC.  She worked at Bemus Point as a Special Education teacher for two years and is working on her master’s degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).  She is looking forward to teaching in the community where she grew up!

· Mrs. Ashley Ippolitio joined our staff in March as our Art Teacher.  She received her undergraduate degree from Kent State University and master’s degree from Buffalo State.  She’s been teaching art for 7 years and enjoys painting pet portraits, spending time with her husband and 2 bulldogs, and cheering on the Buffalo Bills.  She’s looking forward to creating more amazing art with our students this coming school year!

· Mrs. Kelsey Pomeroy will be teaching 5th grade this year at NCES.  She joined us in January and taught 2nd grade through the end of the school year. Mrs. Pomeroy lives in Eden and we are excited to have her with us in this new grade level!

· Miss Kaitlyn Quinlivan returned to us in April as a Kindergarten teacher.  She was previously employed with our district as a long-term sub.  She has 6 years of teaching experience, has her Bachelor’s Degree in Childhood Education and Students with Disabilities and her Master’s Degree in Literacy.  She enjoys reading and spending time with friends and family.

Our district is committed to ensuring that each and every student has the meals they need to succeed in school. As of today, breakfast and lunches for the 22-23 school year will NOT be free for all students.  Free and Reduced Lunch Family Applications are available on our website and available at the main office or the District’s Business Office.  Families are strongly encouraged to complete the application form if you believe you will qualify.  The cafeterias will still remain cashless.  Meals may be prepaid by week or month by visiting

Please save the date for our Open House which will be held on Thursday, September 29.  More information will be coming soon!   

We look forward to seeing you and your family very soon.  Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
