Spring 2016

NHCA Math Students Shine in Regional Event :

The NHCA math students competed in an ACSI Math Olympiad competition on Friday Feb. 26.  Students were given standardized math tests at the district level.  Those that scored high enough on the preliminary district level test got to participate in the ACSI regional level math contest.  We had 11 students qualify at the district level and advanced on to the regional level.  At the regional level, the students competed against 14 different Christian schools (200 students) throughout Kansas and Missouri.

The students receive ribbons for the number of correct answers.

NHCA 5K Fundraiser Event for 2016 – April 23

We are going to hold our first 5K event this year at Jesse James Park.   We have received a lot of sponsors throughout the community that are supporting our school and this event.  Please go to our web site www.nhcapatriots.com and click on the 5K link.  There is a lot of great information about the actual event including these wonderful sponsors.   We also have the registration available at this site.  Parents please remember that we do have a discounted fee for our current families that are participating.  Please check with Cheryl or Alexa for this handwritten form.   We are hoping to have a big turnout for this wonderful event.  Please invite your friends to come join us – we have postcards with information about this event.

1000 Club – Christians Supporting Christians

This is a new program that we are starting to see if we can get Christian community support for our families choosing to educate their children in a Christian school.  We are looking for those that will link arms with our school by providing $10 a month or $120 per year.  If we can find 1000 people in our community (Kearney, Liberty, Lawson, Lathrop…) to join us by supporting our local community Christian school – it would make a huge difference for these families and our school.  We have brochures available that shares about this new program and gives some key information.  We also have this available on our web site www.nhcapatriots.com  .
