Let's Stock CHOA's Feed the Heart Pantry!

 

As you may know, January is Kindness Month here at NCCS. We always make an extra effort to observe Kindness Month through programs and challenges to help our students grow in kindness in their own lives. Galatians 5:22-23 reminds us that kindness is a fruit of the Spirit, which means that kindness is evidence that we are walking with Christ!

We have the opportunity to show kindness through a special food drive benefiting the Feed the Heart program at the Sibley Heart Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Feed the Heart provides meals, snacks and drinks for heart patients and their families during hospital stays, so that families don't have to worry about food and can focus on caring for their children. Click here to find out more! 

Next week (January 24-28), we will unite as a school community to collect food and drink items to send to CHOA to help stock their Feed the Heart program. They request a specific list of items, so below you’ll find the items that your division is responsible for bringing. Please only bring these items. 


Lower School

Drop off outside Mr. McDonald’s office OR outside the MFP room across from Mrs. Nelson’s 1st grade classroom.

  • Individual boxes of cereal

  • Snack-size candy bars

  • Breakfast bars and granola bars

  • Individual packages of peanut butter or cheese crackers

  • Single-serving packets of instant oatmeal or grits
     

Middle School

Drop off outside Mr. Williams’s office

  • Single-serving cups of microwavable macaroni and cheese, soup, pasta, ramen noodles or stew

  • Single-serving bags of chips, pretzels, cookies or crackers

  • Fruit or applesauce cups

  • Individually packaged breakfast pastries, muffins, doughnuts or Pop-Tarts


Upper School

Drop off outside Mr. Smith’s office in the US Building

  • Bottled water, Keurig K-Cups (coffee, tea, cocoa)

  • Canned soft drinks

  • Individual plastic bottles of iced tea, lemonade and sparkling water

  • Individual plastic bottles of juice (no juice boxes)


Let’s rally together as a school community and overwhelm CHOA’s Feed the Heart program with donations for their pantry! If we can have an impressive turnout of food items, there may even be a fun school-wide reward in our future!

PARKING + TRANSPORTATION

We encourage everyone to join us for both the ceremony and Unity Walk before we spend the afternoon serving together. 

  • Parents and student drivers can park at Acworth Community Center and then ride a City of Acworth shuttle over to the Roberts School. 

  • The Unity Walk will travel from the Roberts School to the Acworth Community Center, so your vehicle will be ready for you to drive to the service project at Cauble Park following the ceremony.  

  • If you need to drop off your Upper School student, please drop them off at the Roberts School before 9:15 a.m. 

  • After the ceremony, students who don’t drive will go on the school shuttle with Mr. Smith from the Acworth Community Center to Cauble Park and should be picked up at Cauble Park by around 2 p.m. 

 



Please join us as we unite together to honor the incredible life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and serve our community as a school family!

Chick-Fil-A Leadership Academy

NCCS student government is participating in an intentional leadership development program through Chick-fil-A Leader Academy, and the first session was very impactful (and FUN)! Created specifically with high school students in mind, the program’s goal is to further servant leadership skills through opportunities for students to step up and advocate by creating solutions for real-world problems.

A past project included NCCS students constructing a mobile library that was then shipped to Haiti! Thankful for these students and their serious hearts for true servant leadership!
