Black History Month Film Series Club

"Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will."
- Martin Luther King, Jr., "Letter from a Birmingham Jail"

As Christians we should be striving to be people of both goodwill and deep understanding. In honor of Black History Month, Ms. Kate Seat will be hosting a movie club where Upper School students can learn more about the ways race has shaped our country and how Christians can promote racial justice and reconciliation. Recent events in our country have brought more attention to issues of race and this club will be an opportunity for students to equip themselves to approach this topic with wisdom and compassion. Please contact Ms. Kate Seat if you have any questions.

Location: Mrs. Clark's classroom (507)
Time: Mondays at 3:15

GMEA District 12 Band and Orchestra Honors

DistrictHonorBandSix hundred middle school and eight hundred high school band students recently auditioned before a panel of judges for the 2016 GMEA District 12 (Cobb County area) Honor Bands. We are pleased to announce that two of our students, sixth grader Ben Martin and sophomore Kayla Constantine, have been selected to play in the District 12 Honor Bands on February 5-7 at Hillgrove High School. Ben is one of only two 6th graders to be selected and made 1st chair, lead snare, in the second middle school band. Additionally, he scored 24 points higher than the next student below him! Kayla placed 6th chair out of a large number of clarinets. High school auditions for Honor Band become increasingly more difficult and Kayla worked very hard to receive this honor. Both students will represent NCCS very well and we congratulate them for their accomplishments!

Additionally, we are proud of Middle School Orchestra students Hanna Cloete, Mikayla Riggins, Chichi Enyinda and Kelly Ann Sutterfield from the 5th and 6th Grade Orchestra and Erica Milbourn, Morgan Plont, Aidan Durity and Hallie Meier from the 7th and 8th Grade Orchestra for working hard and auditioning for a position in the GMEA District 12 2016 Middle School Honor Orchestras. As with District Honor Band, hundreds of students from all over Cobb County audition for a place in one of the two orchestras. All students competed in the areas of Intonation, Rhythmic Accuracy, Musicianship and Tone while playing 2 Excerpts and 1 Sight-Reading. Each one made great strides and now know how the audition process works and feels - excerpts and sight reading!!!

Special congratulations go to Hallie Meier, Aidan Durity, and Kelly Ann Sutterfield for successfully passing the audition and receiving a place in the 2016 MS Honor Orchestra! These students will be going to McEachern High School on February 26 - 27 to represent NCCS! The concert will be on Saturday, February 27 at McEachern High School and is open to all, so plan to come support them!

String Ensemble Performs at Governor's Mansion

The Upper School String Ensemble traveled to the Governor's Mansion in Atlanta this past Monday morning to perform for the guests touring the mansion. As the ensemble played, the sweet sounds of Christmas were heard by all walking through the State Room. Georgia First Lady Sandra Deal met with our ensemble before they played and shared her thoughts on the importance of education and how she feels that music is a true blessing! Mrs. Deal then met up with the group after the performance to invite them for cookies and hot cider and a photo opportunity. She provided encouragement to our students by telling them how much she loved their music and that they should never stop playing! In her reflections of the day, Debbie Brink, NCCS Director of Orchestras, said, "God is so awesome to give us the gift of music and it is a joy to share that gift with others!"
