Northwest Christian School

Dear NCS family,

 

I'll be honest.  When this email newsletter last hit your inbox, I was nervous.  In that newsletter, we were presenting all of the changes that we'd made within our annual Jog-a-thon fundraiser.  After years of doing Jog-a-thon the same way, and after talking with students, we had (nervously) opted to change things up quite a bit.  From our students, I had heard that the incentives we had been using to drive their participation, especially in the secondary, were falling flat.  To encourage participation, we had been throwing gift certificates, iPads, candy, prizes, and even cash at them.  It seems funny now, actually.  After a school year full of teaching them that "this life is not about you", we capped the year off with a Jog-a-thon campaign that was, in fact, all about them.  Students advised me to go in a different direction.  So, we did.  But, I was nervous. 

 

What was this new direction that made me so nervous?  In the place of the annual participation-driving "bribes", we inserted what came to be called our "Acts 1:8" initiative:  students encouraged us to give these funds to the areas of service and mission about which they are passionate.  When the campaign is done, this will include our student service efforts at J.B. Sutton Elementary, Kids Kingdom Orphanage in Imuris, Mexico, the Liquid Hope project in Haiti, and Katie Wagner's Stepping Out 4 Hope foundation.  

 

After sending out last month's newsletter, and launching the new emphasis for Jog-a-thon, my nerves have very quickly been set to ease.  Why?  Moving in the new direction, we collected more Jog-a-thon mailers than we ever have in the history of the school.  This means we could be on our way to the strongest Jog-a-thon ever.  Wow.  This also means that our students were moved to action more by these ministry opportunities than by any bribes we have put before them.  Over the last month, this whole adventure has taught me so much.  I'm learning to be more trusting, to take God more fully at His word.  I'm learning to take occasional leaps of faith.  I guess I also learned that, at least every once in a while, the students can become the teachers.

 

We are looking forward to the annual Jog-a-thon event and using it as a moment of real celebration of the things He's about to do through the resources He's providing.  We've set the date for Jog-a-thon for April 21st--more info will be coming home soon.  It's going to be an epic event--we have alumni coming back to help facilitate Jog-a-thon with a few surprises.  But, more than the fun, the outstanding alumni, the spirited students, and surprises, I'm looking forward to the moment when I can report to the students the very real good that will be coming forth from their efforts and new ideas.

 

Would you be interested in continuing to help us push Jog-a-thon in a new and positive direction?  Could you help send a clear message to our students that it is more blessed to give than to receive?  If so, please take a moment to click on the link below...

Seventh Graders Creatively Use their Jog-a-thon Service Funds to Bless "Feed My Starving Children"  



Each student received a micro-loan that enabled them to dream up ways to make a difference in the life of a hungry child

            

Last year, 90% of Jog-a-thon's proceeds were committed to improving campus security and classroom technology.  10%, however, was committed to the school's service learning a program--a program that positions each grade level to partner with a service learning partner and discover new ways that God intends them to be His hands and feet within a needy world. 

 

The seventh grade service learning partner is an organization called "Feed My Starving Children"--a relief ministry with a site in Tempe.  Every seventh grade Crusader goes to the FMSC site twice per year.  While there, the students pack meals that will ultimately go to places around the world to help eliminate hunger.   

 

In August of each year, Mr. Tyler Collins, the seventh grade Bible teacher, challenges each of his students to personally raise money for FMSC before going to pack meals there in December.  The students are asked to raise the money through sacrificial service within their homes and community and by giving up meals.  Doing this, this year, the students raised $3,178 between August 15 and December 4.   

 

Presently, the seventh graders are preparing for their spring trip.  This time, however, there's a bit of twist.  Using seventh grade's portion of Jog-a-thon 2013's service commitment, Mr. Collins gave each of his students a micro-loan (generally $10) and asked them to come up with an idea to multiply it.  Ahead of time the students were given applications for the micro-loans so that they could articulate their ideas.

 

Results from the project are still coming in but already there are some pretty exciting stories.  Two students used their micro-loan to do a yard sale and raised over $200.  Another student bought salsa ingredients, made and sold the salsa, and reported that they raised nearly $1000.  Other students used their funds to promote fundraising meals at area restaurants, hold an auction at a church party, and sell candy bars.  Of the experience, seventh grader Emily Young said, "I learned that we have so much, it's kind of unfair.  We need to learn how we can use what we have to improve the lives of others."

 

NCS Sophomores Do Well in National History Day Competitions 

    

 

Four students preparing for statewide competition on April 5th

             

National History Day (NHD) is the combination of creativity and scholarship and a leading model of performance-based learning.  At Northwest Christian, NHD is a year-long program that engages sophomores in the process of discovery and interpretation of historical topics. Students can produce dramatic performances, imaginative exhibits, multimedia documentaries, interactive websites, and historical papers based on research related to an annual theme. These projects are then evaluated and eligible for competitions at local, state, and national levels. 

 

Regional competitions took place in early March at the Arizona Historical Society Museum and Northwest Christian had 33 sophomores competing in both individual and group categories.  "The judges remarked to me how pleasant and polite our young people were," said sponsor Mary Hall.  "Since only two from each category can advance to state, it is a hard honor to achieve.  We were blessed to advance a group documentary and a historical paper to the state competition."  The competition will take place on Saturday, April 5th at the ASU Sky Song Center.  The group that will be representing Northwest Christian is comprised of Noah DeLaPiedra, Jake Huey, and Drew Inness.  The historical paper that advanced was written by Brittany Schmertmann.  "Many of our students were just below the cut off and I am extremely proud of all of the hard work the students put into their projects," explained Mary.  "I am even prouder of how they behaved at the competition."

"Treasure":  Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is Coming!  
Annual week of gratitude scheduled for April 28th through May 2nd

    

 

  

Though it seems as though we were just sharpening our pencils and buying back-to-school clothes, the end of the 2013/2014 school year is almost upon us.  "In a meeting this week," says superintendent Geoff Brown, "we were getting ready to pray and talking about how quickly the year has gone.  We were looking back at the last year--all of the highs and all of the lows--and we were realizing all of the things that the Lord has done within our midst.  There have been highs.  There have been lows.  But through it all, He's been faithful."  A picture of the Lord's faithfulness comes every year in the form of the investment that Northwest Christian teachers make in terms of time and energy.  "This year especially," says Geoff, "our teachers have gone the extra mile.  In addition to what we all see in terms of stage center, behind the curtains they've been working extra hard to revise their curriculum maps in order to maximize the impact of every lesson.  As well, we're moving forward in terms of technology integration.  They've invested a significant amount of time preparing for the looming digital horizon in education."

 

Each year, towards the end of April or the beginning of May, the families of NCS have worked together to take a moment to express appreciation to the teachers and staff for the investment that they make within students.  This year's Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is scheduled for the week of April 28th.  The theme this year is "Treasure" and is drawn from Luke 12:34.  "In the passage, Jesus is helping his disciples to discern their truest priorities," continues Geoff.  "Our hearts are truly indicative of our priorities.  I love that our parents chose this passage--it perfectly illustrates that our priority for the week will be treasuring our teachers."

 

Every day throughout the week of April 28th, opportunities will exist for our parents to contribute to the effort.  To better understand how you can help, please download the letter from the link below, complete it, and return it the school office.

Northwest Christian Fine Arts Students Recognized in Several Regional Competitions
Mr. Lyons and Ms. Oleson lead band and choir students toward disctinction

          

 

Northwest Christian offers congratulations to sixth graders Hannah Sternberg and Catie Holt for being honored participants in the Sixth Grade All State Honor Band Festival that took place in March at Dobson high school in Mesa. The girls enjoyed a day of rehearsing and an evening performance with one hundred other students from around the state in the largest band in which they have ever performed.  "They represented NCS very well and enjoyed a good conductor and great music," said NCS band teacher Mark Lyons.  "They were considered the best sixth grade musicians in the state!"

 

Likewise eighth grader Carissa Eich performed in the Eighth Grade All State Honor Band, and seventh graders Kenna Nagler, Abby Inman, Caleb Panikulam, and Victoria Hendrix performed in the seventh grade honor band.  "Our young band members found the music to be pretty easy," continues Mr. Lyons.  "And, the opportunity provided musical and character leadership for the other students involved.  It was good to represent Christ the way our students did in that our NCS band students were the only Christian school band members participating in the Honor Bands."

 

Within the high school band, in February, Devin Crary, a freshman, competed against high schoolers from Greenway, Mountain Ridge, Dobson, Deer Valley, Hamilton, Basha, Chandler, Ironwood, Carl Hayden and Thunderbird and 32 other high schools and earned a place in the Arizona All Regional Band.

 

Boys from Middle School Choir work with one of the profs from Point Loma.

Recently, Northwest Christian's NCS Secondary Band (under the direction of Mr. Mark Lyons) and Middle School Choir (under the direction of Ms. Jessica Oleson)  traveled to the World Strides Music Festival in San Diego.  As part of the event, students visited SeaWorld but also competed with high schools from the southwest region.  Students also participated within workshops that were held at Point Loma University.  Within the competitions, the Middle School Choir earned a Silver-2nd Award and the Secondary Band took a Bronze-3rd Award.  "The competition was judged using a nationally-established rubric," explains Middle School Principal Samantha Maszton, who attended the event with her students.  "That means that our students were scored with junior high  and high school bands and choirs that participated within different regions across the nation.  We're very proud of what Ms. Oleson and her choir have accomplished."

Elementary Prepares for Fall Social Studies Curriculum Adoption
School looks to families to provide critical review of materials being considered

 

 

"As part of the Northwest Christian multi-year academic plan," says Don Moenich, NCS Director of Curriculum and Instruction, "we're cycling through all of the content area classroom curriculum and reviewing all of the materials that we present in pursuit of our academic objectives.  This year, we're taking a close look at elementary social studies in preparation for a proposed adoption in the 2014/2015 school year."  The current year review includes all curricular resources that are being presented in kindergarten through 5th grade classrooms.  The review was recently narrowed to three Christian publishers but the teachers and administrators involved in the selection have landed on the materials from Bob Jones University Press as their top recommendation.   

"The BJU Press curriculum has been recently revised with a powerful addition of Biblical Integration questions and connections imbedded throughout the text," says Moenich.  "They have brilliantly merged together the relationship between human history and the Christian faith.  This combination of resources allows our students to see and study social studies the way God views it and sheds God's light on society at large." 

 

Teachers previewed the materials and conducted extensive evaluations at each grade level of the materials.  Areas of text evaluation included alignment of the content to the Stanford 10 test, consistency with our Christian testimony, congruency with a true historic representation of God's design and workings in human history, support materials which include higher order thinking questions, and  listed strategies for better teacher instruction and student retention.

 

After teachers had reviewed materials and standards, ultimately, Bob Jones University Press received the nod and was voted as the top choice by all grade levels participating.  Teachers reported that BJU Press materials were best aligned with the current NCS social studies standards.

 

The text copies are available in the library for parent review. Please stop by and look over the materials and let us know what you think. This process will culminate with the school board approval this month.

Middle School Teacher Lisa Smith Recognized as "Best Mannered Teacher" by National Junior League of Cotillions

Mrs. Smith was nominated by sixth grader Zeke Verloop

             

At the end of February, Northwest Christian was pleased to learn that middle school teacher Lisa Smith had earned the distinction of "Best Mannered Teacher" from the National Junior League of Cotillions after being nominated by sixth grader Zeke Verloop.  NJLC is an etiquette and social dance training program that involves thousands of students nationwide and is offered through Northwest Christian.

 


Students were asked to nominate and honor teachers who exemplify the etiquette and manners being taught within the NJLC program.  The criteria for selection included the teacher's positive characteristics, how they show courtesy and respect for students, and why the teacher is a good role model.

"Mrs. Smith is very strict," explained Zeke, "but in a nice way.  She always keeps her classroom tidy and she expects us to keep it tidy.  She also expects the boys to be gentlemen in their treatment of the girls."

SPOTLIGHT ON STUDENTS:
Senior Adam Holly Looks Towards a Future in Worship Ministry
Adam Holly leads worship in secondary chapels

Racquetball, race cars, and passionate worship:  all hallmarks of a strong spiritual leader

 

With strong academic performance, involvement in the NCS chapel worship band, high school chorale, participation within the school theater program, serving at J.B. Sutton Elementary, and leading a community group, Senior Adam Holly is a key component to the student body at NCS.  For all of the high-profile involvement that he finds at school, this is only half of Adam, in that he's deeply involved in ministry at his church and enjoys a couple of hobbies that might surprise some.  Within his church, he leads worship and a small group Bible study.  As well, it may surprise some that he is a competitive racquetball player and enjoys racing go-karts (or any motorized vehicle with wheels). 

 

Adam is looking forward to pursuing God's purposes within his life in the future.  He will be attending Victory Bible College in Tulsa, Oklahoma and participating within their worship program.  That program will ultimately find him earning either a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Biblical Leadership from Southwestern Christian University.

 

Adam has attended NCS for three years.  While he looks forward to graduation and the adventures that lie beyond it, he says that he will miss Senior Bible with Jeremy "Mr. E" Eagan.  He is thankful to "E" for all that he taught and knows the information that he learned from the class will help students immensely as they are sent out into the world. 

 

Adam reports that he has come to appreciates Jeremiah 29:13 as his life verse: "If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me." He says, "I see God teaching me more about the Holy Spirit and how He works in us every step of every day. I am learning more of what it looks like to live in the Spirit and how to let His power work through me rather than trying to do everything on my own. The past two years I've realized that when we focus on not sinning, we end up sinning more. But if we focus just on God, the thought of sin doesn't cross our mind as much."

SPOTLIGHT ON ALUMNI:
Alumni Emilie Johannes Opens Door for New Ministry Ops for NCS Students

God uses alum to further His purposes at J.B. Sutton Elementary

  

NCS alum Emilie Johannes has many job titles.  Children's Ministry Director.  Event Coordinator.  Substitute teacher.  Godly mother.  Pastor's wife.  Add "superwoman" to the list and it might prove to be a bit of an understatement.

 

Emilie attended Northwest Christian throughout her high school years. She experienced the joys of cheer initiations, student council, and multiple plays. With three of her own children now attending Northwest Christian, she describes the school she knew then and the school she knows now as a "breath of fresh air after attending public school".  Within her own life, as a student, she was eternally grateful for the impact that Mr. Rick Leasure had on not only her life but of all her fellow classmates. Although it has been years, she can still remember the scripture he poured into the students' lives.

 

She advises current students to seize the opportunities they are presented with at Northwest Christian and to work hard to cultivate relationships that they will come to understand are irreplaceable. 

 

The Johannes' are a new family to Northwest Christian this year and during their admissions interview with elementary principal Dawna Underwood, the subject of the Johannes' pastoring of Calvario was presented.  Located in the Maryvale district, the Spanish-speaking church family happens to be in the same district and geographic proximity as Northwest Christian's "adopted" sister school, J.B.Sutton Elementary.  For the past four years, NCS has been involved in efforts to serve the families in the Sutton community through service initiatives that included Thanksgiving meals and Christmas gifts.  As the conversation unfolded, it became clear that God's providence was unmistakable in the situation.  Within a few weeks, Greg and Emilie Johannes had met with NCS Student Council and began listening for God's direction to see how Calvario could partner with Northwest Christian to further demonstrate the love of Christ within the needy Sutton community.  Among other ideas that are coming forward, the school will be using funds from Jog-a-thon 2014 as NCS students will be helping within the Calvario Vacation Bible School and inviting Sutton families to participate.
