Substitute Teachers & Nurses

At Northern Wells Community Schools we are committed to using highly qualified substitute teachers to work with students in the event of a teacher absence. We are looking to increase our substitute teacher pool along with our substitute nurse pool. Please click on the link below to go about the process of applying. Please contact the Central Office at 260.622.4125 for additional information.

Popcorn Wednesdays

Lancaster Central PTO will be selling pre-packaged popcorn for 50cents a bag. Popcorn will be available for sale on the following Wednesdays: April 7th, April 21st and May 5th. There are 3 different flavors to choose from; Traditional, Sweet and Salty and White Cheddar.


Lancaster Central Elementary School will be conducting the ILEARN test during April 19th through 30th.  The test involves students who are in third, fourth and fifth grades.  During this time frame if you can try not to make any morning appointments and have the kids come to school with a good nights rest and full stomach that would help them do the best they can!

Kindergarten Enrollment

Welcome 2021-22 Kindergarten Parents! We are not able to hold in person Kindergarten Roundup, so we have the next best thing!  Mrs. Butcher, principal and Sara Clark, nurse have put together an informative video explaining forms and other pertinent information about Kindergarten.  It is located to the right of this blurb along with all the forms you need to enroll your student.  If you have any questions about the process, the forms or anything, feel free to give Dee or Stephanie a call at 260-565-3135.  The next step after getting these forms filled out will be Kindergarten Screening.  That will take place on Thursday, May 27th.  You will receive an email at a later date that will include a link to sign up for a time for this to happen.
