Weekly Highlights

We had a great Apple Day Celebration!  Thanks to all of the parents who donated materials and came in to help us out.  You helped make the day very special for our students!

We pray you will have a relaxing and safe Fall break.  Whether you are traveling somewhere or taking a “staycation”, enjoy your precious family time.  We will send home the homework calendar when we get back from Fall Break. We will see you back at school on Monday, October 4th!

 

What We're Learning

Here is a preview of what we will be learning next week:

Bible |  Joseph and his brothers, Joseph in prison

Math |  Numbers 11-19, subitizing and place value

Phonics |  Medial vowels, "O" and "A", consonants "C" and "D"

Reading |  We will continue reading books about animals to integrate with science.  We will discuss the parts of a book (title, author, illustrator, front cover, back cover, spine) and the difference between a fiction and nonfiction book.

Science |   Conclusion of our unit on Animals.

Important Reminders

Super Sight Words

We will finish our "Super Sight Words" this week.  Please be sure to review them with your child each night.  When your child is able to read all 26 sight words with fluency, he/she will receive a special Superman brag tag!  Also, please remember to return the sight word flashcards every Friday morning in the Daily Folder.  We will add the new set of words to the sight word ring that day so that the students have them to practice for the coming week.

It’s Fall!  Please pack a sweatshirt and/or a lightweight jacket for your child so that they don’t get cold during recess!  Most classes go out in the morning and the temps are getting chilly!

October 8 - Grandparent’s Day (optional half day)

On Friday, October 8, we look forward to welcoming our grandparents and grandfriends onto campus for a morning of celebration! If you are new to NCCS, Grandparents / Grandfriends Day is one of our most beloved annual traditions.

Doors will open at 7:30 a.m. We will start  with coffee and a continental breakfast in the gym, followed by our special program, which will begin at 8:30.  While we are excited to welcome our precious grandparents on campus, we will also be providing a livestream link for those who prefer to watch from home. We will share the link shortly. 

Following the program, grandparents/ grandfriends are invited to check their Lower School grandchild(ren) out to spend the day together! Go have lunch, play outside or maybe even take a nap in preparation to return for Fall Festival!  Please note that we will not have instructional lessons after the program that day due to the number of students who typically leave with their families.

For our students who are remaining with us on campus, please pack a lunch and snack (unless they pre-purchased the meal plan). 

Register HERE to attend!
