NCCS Junior Robert Howard Wins GHSA State Championship
Huge congratulations to junior Robert Howard who was the Low Medalist at the 1A Private Golf State Championship, and is now the 2017 1A Private Golf Individual State Champion! Robert earned an individual spot to the State Championship after a strong performance at the Area Tournament, shooting an even par 72. Although the team did not qualify for the State Championship, Robert was able to qualify by being the lowest score outside of a qualifying team.
Robert competed in the state tournament against 80 golfers at Green Island Country Club in Columbus, GA. The tournament was supposed to be a 2-day 36- hole event. After day one, Robert was leading in first place after shooting a 68, which is 3 under par. Robert was confident in his first day performance, “My stroke was pure, swing was pure, and I just started making some putts and stayed hot.” On the second day of the tournament the directors decided to cancel play due to the playability of the course and the upcoming forecast. With the 2nd day cancelled, Robert was able to hold his 1st place finish from Monday and be titled the 1A Private Golf Individual State Champion!
The elite caliber of Robert as a golfer is shown by the fact that in all of the GHSA State Championship Tournaments on Monday 9from Region 1A through 7A), there were 640 individual golfers - and Robert had the second lowest score out of every one of the 640 golfers that played in those tournaments! That is a very impressive accomplishment!
This is only the second GHSA sport Individual State Championship for NCCS, so Robert’s State Championship is a huge accomplishment! Way to go, Robert!

Famous Visitors “Come to Life” at the Wax Museum
Did you know that Jackie Robinson and Marie Antoinette recently visited North Cobb Christian School? Well, in a way. If you journeyed through the gymnasium on May 12th, you would have seen our fourth-graders transformed into famous figures from the past and present in a new and improved Wax Museum presentation that included technology. This event, which culminates a book report biography study, featured Pocahontas, Babe Ruth, Frederick Douglass, and Elvis — to name a few. More importantly, it showcased the impressive talents of our fourth-graders, who read a biography of someone’s life, wrote a summarization of the book, and recorded their presentation onto QR codes to pull off this event.
Many Lower School classes, scores of parents and relatives, faculty, and staff visited the museum, with their tech devices in hand and ear buds using a special guest wifi provided by our Technology Department to experience the museum first hand. They all agreed that the fourth-graders deserve a round of applause for their wonderful performances! Well done, fourth graders!
Sixth Grade World History Classes Create Coat of Arms
Sixth grade students recently completed a unit on Early, Medieval and Renaissance History with a project representing the Medieval time period. The project was based on a Medieval "Coat of Arms” as students learned the specificity of the knight's' shield and what each part of the coat of arms represented. To create their own coat of arms the students began with a list of character traits and adjectives that described their own personality. From this list, the students referred to information about the meaning behind the symbols and colors on the shield and they designed their own personal coat of arms based on this criteria. Their coat of arms "motto" was a favorite Bible verse they picked out themselves. The students started with a rough sketch/draft and then finalized their coat of arms on a larger piece of paper that was laminated. Students presented their project to the class and explained their "Coat of Arms" then took their projects home to their mothers as a "Mother's Day" gift! Mrs. Harris was extremely proud of the students’ hard work and great results!
5th Grade Orchestra Performance at Local Assisted Living Facility
Students found out what a pleasure it is to make music together and then share it with those who may not have a lot of music in their lives! Sixteen of our 5th grade orchestra students volunteered to stay after school, practice extra time, and give back some of what God has blessed them with in the gift of music. These students traveled to the Dogwood Forest Assisted Living Facility to play for the residents there. It was a great crowd - some clapping, most smiling, some directing, and a few had a catnap! but it was a beautiful experience! Music is powerful - it soothes the soul, it brings joy to the mind and body, it speaks life, and gives words when no words will come. These students enjoyed being a part of sharing the gift of music outside the walls of NCCS and are excited to do it again. Caroline Epp, Elizabeth Turnbough, Addie Kulp, Tylan Robich, Morgan Gordon, Sutton Thomas, Jack Lachnicht, Luke Meier, Owen Siller, Alexander Nelson, Luke McArdle, Kaliyah Powell, Ivan Kammerdiener, Justin Richards, and Nicholas Grier.
