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! Pray for Mr. Dunlap as he finalizes the Washington D.C. Trip. Remember to pray for the staff here at NKCS and the leadership of the school. Please continue to pray for Olivia Morales.

Crusader Cafe

If your child orders school lunches, please make sure you stay current on your Crusader Café account. This money helps the eighth graders with the cost of the Washington D.C. trip and many of the costs are now coming due. We also have to pay for the lunches that our school orders. It is very important thataccounts stay current.

BBQ Sponsor Boards

It’s that time of year again! We are ready to start collecting any sponsors for the BBQ who would like a spe-cial board made for them to be displayed. Selling Sponsor Boards is voluntary, but kids can earn credit towards their totals for BBQ rewards. If you need sponsorship forms to pass out and a colored copy of the example poster boards to show your potential clients, get in touch with Mrs. Rodarte in her classroom or text/call her at 301-9120. Mrs. Rodarte will also be able to answer any questions you might have about the boards. For every $1000.00 in sponsorships you acquire, you’ll personally receive a $50.00 scrip card of your choice!


“Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22) Scripture constantly exhorts us to commit our ways unto the Lord, to cast all our burdens and cares upon Him, and to be anxious for nothing as we struggle against the world, the flesh, and the Devil in this life. To commit our way unto the Lord means we humbly follow where He leads being confident that His way is one of wisdom and everlasting love in Christ. If we could determine our own way through this world, we would always be careful to avoid adversity, sickness, and trials. Yet the Lord often leads His children in ways of darkness and distress, anguish and agony in this troubled life. Therefore, we need constant grace to commit our way to the Lord. How blessed it is to have this grace! And when we do commit our way to the Lord, we are freed from anxiety and we rejoice in the Lord, and that joy is abiding! Do you have abiding joy in the Lord in the midst of this dark world… this vale of tears that we must limp through? Our only hope, joy, and rejoicing is found when we look directly to Christ and “Cast our burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22). Are you bearing the burdens or have you cast them at the foot of the cross? Yes, life is difficult… struggles abound… temptation and sin are real and discouraging, and there’s much heartache, death, destruction, and disappointment in our earthly pilgrimage. Nevertheless, the Word of the Lord tells us to “Cast all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). And when we do we have the precious promise of the Lord that “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:7). Therefore, take confidence in Christ our Savior, and “Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22).
