Our eighth graders visited the Operation Christmas Child warehouse in early December where they took part in packing some of the millions of boxes that will be sent across the globe to children in need. Upon arrival, students participated in training and began working alongside volunteers from Florida, Virginia, and Georgia. Some students worked in an assembly line where they took part in inspecting, taping, packing, and lifting close to 10,000 boxes (by 11:15am!) Other students packed bars of soap and pencils that would be included in the boxes. The “heavy lifters” were able to close up the filled boxes and prepare them for shipping. A Florida volunteer commented on how well our students picked up on the process and how well they worked together. This outreach project gave our students a glimpse of what a huge blessing Samaritan’s Purse is to the world. Along with the work that they did, our students also delivered their own packed shoeboxes that they donated to this special cause. What a privilege to be able to take part in such an awesome ministry!
NCCS is pleased to be included in the 2017 Niche list of Best Christian High Schools in Georgia! This achievement is a result of scoring highly on a variety of factors including SAT/ACT scores, student-teacher ratio, the quality of colleges that students consider, and reviews from students and parents. The Niche data team analyzed data from thousands of schools across the country to create their 2017 Best Schools list.
Congratulations to our Robotics team for winning 2nd out of 20 teams in the BEST robotics competition at Georgia State University-Clarkston Perimeter College in Clarkston! They will now advance to the southeast BEST competition at Auburn in December where the top 55 teams in 5 states will compete.
The Paving the Way campaign was launched at North Cobb Christian School in 2011. This capital campaign raised $3.4 million and has allowed for property acquisition, lights and bleacher expansion on the Jacob Dennis Field, the new drive to the school, the acquisition and renovation of the FAB, the practice field, upgrades to the pavilion, softball field and baseball field, as well as enhancements to the gym. The final project for the Paving the Way campaign is the construction of the tennis complex now underway. The location of these courts is to your left as you enter campus on Eagle Drive, next to the practice field and before the Fine Arts Building. The tennis complex will be completed in the spring 2017. Thank you to our many donors and supporters for making this campaign a success! It is amazing to see our people share the resources that God has blessed them with to support the worthy mission of His school!
TOGETHER.... Lower School students made a difference in their community through our service chapel this week! They showed the love of God generously and we are so proud of them! They have listened not only with their ears, but also with their hearts! During chapel our students heard awesome testimonies from Dr. Ike Reighard, President & CEO of MUST ministries, NCCS Middle School student, Angela Bell, and Acworth Police Officer, Corporal Russell Mines.
