February Newsletter

School Report… We have received many blessings this year for which we are grateful. It brings us great joy to get to see the Christ-like character exuding out of the hearts of those we serve. The NICS students are maturing and are showing a desire to give back to the school in many ways. To highlight a few: students have used their time and talents to help clean up the school, design logos, create videos and a school blog. What an exciting time at NICS. The halls are filled with a spirit of giving and love. Come see for yourself! Additionally, we are grateful for you! Thank you to everyone who is fasting and praying for NICS. We wholeheartedly want to be a school led by, and focused on, God.


NICS Alumus ….Cross Pilgrim has recently graduated from the Avista Utility Construction School at Spokane Community College. He is now officially a Lineman! He was ranked one of the top three in his class, and had exactly 245 climbs, the most climbs in his class! Congratulations Cross!

Scrip Cards Available


Scrip is simply the name given to the process of buying a gift card from the school and using it to purchase everyday items.  In return NICS receives a kickback which helps keep tuition rates lower. You can purchase gift cards in the office or online. Place orders online at shopwithscrip.com and use school code C8L336F229L94. Parents that buy scrip get to deduct one hour of service time for every $100 they spend buying scrip!!   

Happy Scrip-ing!

Parent Service Hours

Each household is to provide a minimum of 15 hours of service for the school year. A single parent household only needs to meet half of that, or 7.5 hours. NICS provides a wide variety of service opportunities throughout the school year for families to choose their involvement.  If you are ready to serve, please inquire with the ladies in the front office to receive more information about parent service hours.
