New Weather Station at NCCS

Wondering what today's weather will be at NCCS? Look no further. North Cobb Christian School just received our very own weather station that reports real time weather conditions! WeatherStationBareWeb
As fourth grade lead teacher Julie Bare began to teach a weather unit this year, she recognized a need for students to have access to weather instruments and to have the ability to collect viable data for accurate weather forecasting. This led to working with our technology department to purchase our new solar-powered Vantage Vue weather station that measures the amount of rainfall, air pressure, wind speed and direction, temperature and relative humidity.

WeatherStationFourth grade plans to use the weather station to report the local forecast during Lower School Monday Morning Announcements each week in addition to using it to enhance their study of weather. Students can collect data from the station to measure air pressure and precipitation and study how they are related. The weather station will provide students with a fun way to determine and apply longitude and latitude coordinates to locate our school on a map during our Social Studies mapping class as well.

Mrs. Bare hopes that every grade level will benefit from the Vantage Vue located on top of our Press Box at the football stadium. Here are just a few ideas of ways it can help students learn from using it:

- Integrate science with math daily calendar activities
- Graph data collected over time
- weather forecasting
- phases of the moon
- weather conditions for outdoor sport-related activity/games
- math operations using positive and negative numbers comparing weather temperatures
- inclement weather conditions
- compare/contrast our local weather conditions with those of parts of the country or world during certain seasons

We are thankful for our Technology Department for bringing this useful tool to NCCS! Look for the Wunderground icon at the top left of the NCCS website or click here for the current OCC1Webweather at NCCS.

ANTIGONE NOW: Best in State Show Opening Halloween Weekend

NCCS Fine Arts are proud to present Melissa Cooper's ANTIGONE NOW.
A postmodern response to the myth of Antigone AntigoneNowWebthat brings powerful, modern prose to an ancient and universal story. In the midst of a bombed-out city still feeling the aftershocks of war, the rebellious and intense Antigone defies her uncle to bury her disgraced brother. Awarded First Place at the 2015 Georgia Theatre Conference and home to both the 2015 GTC Best Actress (Jaden Brown) and the 2015 GTC Best Ensemble, this show is absolutely packed with talent and is an absolute tour-de-force. Come out and bear witness to the power of words, the tyranny of breath, and the brevity of life...a providentially ordained piece for our community in this time.

NOTE: Due to thematic elements (death, suicide, self-sacrifice, and war), parental discretion is advised.

Showtimes: 10/29 & 10/30 @ 7PM in the FAB
Tickets are $5 and go on sale in the School Store 10/26

Great Turnout for All Pro Dad's Day!

Thanks to all of our dads that came to the October All Pro Dad's Day on October 9! We had over 150 people for our first meeting! After eating breakfast together, dads were able to introduce their students to others at their tables and tell what they're most proud of for each student. After some discussion among the tables, Chris Boggess, Middle School Pastor at NorthStar Church. spoke about "being unique." What an amazing morning!

Be sure to save the date for our next All Pro Dad's Day will be Friday, November 13 in the gym at 7:00am! As we get prepare for next month's event, we need a few ladies that can help set up, serve, check people in and clean up afterwards. If you're interested in helping, please email Nathan Wright.
