Textbook Sale for 7th-12th grades
It is easy to sell your textbooks using one of the following four options:
1. The EZ Drop buyback plan through our textbook provider, MBS Direct.
We will have the bags and boxes ready for you in the Media Center from May 29-June 5. You must go on the MBS Direct website to create your quote and then bring a copy of that quote when you drop your books off. If you bought your books through them originally, you may use the same login information and generate an easy quote. You may sell your books to MBS even if you bought them from another source.
For questions you might have about the EZ buyback option, click here.
2. Participate in the school's Textbook Consignment Sale. The days to bring your books in to sell are Wednesday, May 29, and Thursday, May 30, from 7:30am-1:00pm. The actual sale in which you can buy books for next year will be on Thursday, May 30, and Friday, May 31 from 7:30am-1:00pm in the Media Center. For the consignment sale, parents price their own books. For more selling guidelines, including how to price your book, click here. Each seller must have a check-in form, found here.
PLEASE NOTE - The sale is a CASH ONLY sale.
3. Go to some of the other textbook websites such as www.cash4book.net, www.half.com, www.amazon.com or www.chegg.com.
4. Network with other NCCS parents to swap, trade or buy books from each other. We would caution you to check the textbook list on the website under the Parent's Page (top right corner) and then click on Textbooks to make sure the books you are buying/selling are in fact going to be used next year.
Baccalaureate – Wednesday, May 22
Please join us on Wednesday, May 22, at 8:00am for a celebration of what God has done in and through the lives of our seniors during their time at NCCS.

Top Rating for Concert Choir!
Our Lower School Concert Choir made quite an impact last week as the youngest group to perform at the Southern Star Music Festival. Earning gold ratings from all of the judges, this group of 2nd through 4th graders represented NCCS in an outstanding way! We are so proud of our Concert Choir!
Alumnus Shares Message in Chapel
The Upper School students and faculty had an opportunity to hear from Tara Jones, NCCS Class of 2010, in chapel this week. Tara just completed her junior year at Auburn University where she is pursuing a degree in marketing. She was also recently elected Miss Auburn for her senior year. This is a prestigious leadership position that allows her to host guests on campus and promote a platform that is important to her. Tara was prompted to help with the water crisis in third world countries based on a project in Mrs. Fox's computer class during her junior year at NCCS. She shared how God has been sovereign in guiding her steps these past few years and how she is continuing to use what she learned at NCCS to point people to Jesus during her time at Auburn. We are incredibly proud of Tara and her servant leadership!
