Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Moving Forward Program Building

MFPRibbonCutting2WebA ribbon cutting for the Dr. Carolyn Ware Moving Forward Program Building was held last Thursday, September 1. Dr. Ware, Helen Boen, faculty, staff, and parents attended the official ceremony, with Mr. Clingman sharing about the importance and potential of the Moving Forward Program (MFP) at NCCS and in the community. The MFP is designed to support NCCS students with learning differences that have average to above average intelligence by helping them improve their academic achievement, social skills, and cognitive abilities. NCCS anticipates the effectiveness of the Moving Forward Program increasing as more services are added to the opportunities already offered. The program is unique in its offerings and comprehensive reach of students and their needs and it is one of the many ways NCCS strives to serve its student body more effectively to prepare them for success.

Congratulations to NCCS junior K.P. Pierre for his excellent work as a participant in the Brown University Biomedical Engineering Pre-college Program this summer. K.P. was one of only 25 students selected from across the United States to participate in this distinguished program hosted at Emory University and the CDC in Atlanta. This program gave K.P. the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the most highly regarded leaders in the fields of Neuroscience, Biotechnology and Epidemiology. K.P. was recognized and received the highest scoring grade in the program with 99%. He also received the Lab Award for his outstanding research and lab work. Outstanding job, K.P.!  (Pictured giving presentation and working at the CDC on a human brain.)

K3-4th Students “Show What They Know” Using Seesaw App!

SeesawAll of our lower school students are now able to share what’s happening in their classes with their parents through an app called Seesaw. Students can “show what they know” on the app, using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. Seesaw gives students a real audience for their work and offers parents a personalized window into their child's learning. As students independently document what they are working on in class, deeper learning and reflection are encouraged. It’s a perfect tool in which the learning process is easily captured, instead of just the end result.

Students can use Seesaw's built-in audio recording and drawing tools to reflect on what they've learned or explain how they got their answer. In turn, they are able to receive an authentic audience of their peers and parents, encouraging better work and real feedback. Through Seesaw teachers can control who can see what, and what feedback options are available. It is private, so only parents see their children’s posts and the whole class posts the teacher puts up. We are excited about the partnership among students, teachers, and families that is already being created through Seesaw and look forward to all of the ways that this new tool will empower our students as they learn.

New Head Baseball Coach Announced

NCCS Athletics is excited to announce the hiring of our new Varsity Baseball Head Coach, Jimmy Keane. Coach Keane is a North Cobb Christian School alumnus who was a member of the 2006 State Championship baseball team. Jimmy was named to the GISA All-Region and All-State team, and was selected to the NCCS Hall of Fame in 2012.

Upon graduation from NCCS, Coach Keane played college baseball at Andrew College and the University of West Georgia where he pitched as both a starter and reliever for three years before ending his playing career due to multiple shoulder injuries. He graduated from the University of West Georgia in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communication.

Coach Keane started his coaching career as an assistant to Coach Chris Stafford at Marietta High School where he coached for one year before moving to Nashville, TN in 2011 to pursue other baseball opportunities. Upon moving to Nashville, he coached the MAD Mavericks 14U, 15U, 16U, and 17U with Showtime Sports Academy acting as both head coach and pitching coach. Over four seasons, Coach Keane produced a winning program and over 30 of his players that he directly coached went on to play at the college level.

In Nashville, Coach Keane was responsible for beginning the non-profit youth baseball organization Showtime Baseball of TN. He also oversaw operations at the largest indoor baseball facility in Middle Tennessee. Coach Keane also worked with Next Level Ballplayer where he managed a vast network of college baseball coaches, MLB contacts, and baseball minds to help educate parents, players, and coaches on the baseball recruiting process and baseball education.

On returning to his alma mater, Jimmy says "I am tremendously honored to be back at a place that has such incredible tradition and success. This is a home that God led me to twice, and I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to continue the great legacy and standard that NCCS represents. I owe so much to God using NCCS as a great compass in my life, and I look forward to helping the students and players of NCCS continue to see the power of God's presence at this school".

In 2012, Jimmy married his wife, Natalie, who is a Christian based dance instructor. They are both committed to the NCCS community. Coach Keane can't wait to lead our players while consistently keeping the joy and passion that makes the game great in the forefront of his coaching.
