September Newsletter

Schedules are filled, the halls are buzzing. We are back! Thank you to all who volunteered to get the school, the Royal Closet, and the staff ready for an amazing year. We really appreciate you!

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.  There will be opportunities during school hours, for weekend service, evenings, or items that can be accomplished at home. You may pick up a form for recording your completed hours from the office.  Here are just a few ways you can serve during the year: Lunch room monitor, Christmas Market, carpentry, substitute teaching, library aide, phone calls, scrip purchases, and any other area you are gifted in. Be sure to check your inbox, emails are sent out with many opportunities to serve during the year.

Teacher Recognition... Emily Eichelberger (soon to be James 9/28) is being  highlighted this month. She is an NICS alumnus, and recently graduated from Eastern Washing ton University with a bachelor’s degree in Music. She is passionate about music and drama and has participated in many CYT programs. She will be teaching both elementary and secondary students. Welcome Emily!    #communityinChrist #educationpoweredbyJesus
