A lot of information comes home from school. This information is given because we want to keep you informed about what is going on in your child’s classroom and with the school in general. Please take time each day to go over the notes and also to talk with your child about his/her classroom and day at school! As always, feel free to contact the school with questions you might have!

As a body of believers, we are called upon to be constantly in prayer (I Thess. 5:17). These weekly notes will list different prayer items that I hope you will remember as you spend time in prayer each day. There are always more prayer items than listed, but we ask that you give special attention to these! Please continue to pray for our school as well as each teacher and their class.

With the cold weather comes colds and flu. If your child is sick or running a fever, PLEASE keep them home. Please make sure your child has a jacket and is dressed warmer in these colder months. Please write your child’s name inside their jacket. We have jackets left out on the playground quite often.

Scrip News!

We have an ongoing fundraiser called scrip here at NKCS. This is a great program and so easy to use. The scrip program is basically gift cards that you purchase through the program and can use just like money at stores all over. Just a few examples are iTunes, Albertsons, Home Depot, Carl’s Jr., Wal Mart, and Smart and Final. There are hundreds of cards offered. Also you can come into the office if you have any questions. You can order online at www.shopwithscrip.com and put in the school enrollment code 68EADBE211178. Remember scrip makes great Christmas presents!
