Northwest Christian School

Dear NCS family,


Wow!  Our parents and families provided the teachers of Northwest Christian School with an amazing Faculty and Staff Appreciation Week.  Quite literally, we were blown away!  Themed "Treasure", over the course of the week you truly showed the NCS teachers and staff that they are treasured.  Your generosity in terms of time, encouragement, prayers, thoughtful gifts, and great food was so wonderful.  With several parent champions at the helm of the effort, so many parents came out in force and very clearly demonstrated gratitude and reflected the love of Christ.  At the busiest time of the year, with the crush of the school year on, your message hit home in ways more powerful than you may understand.


This year, more than any year before, there was one thing that hit home during appreciation week.  It struck me on Friday as we all enjoyed the amazing Caribbean-themed luncheon that you provided.  As I surveyed the room, I watched the dozens of parents working so hard to produce an event that was so special and so memorable.  Within the group, there were many parents who knew us well.  Maybe too well...


Sometimes, life at NCS doesn't always look like it does in the Spotlight newsletter. Some days are hard days, stressful days, feeling-overwhelmed days.  And, candidly, sometimes, on those days, I'm not the perfect reflection of Christ that I wish I was.  On Friday afternoon, however, we were surrounded by parents who had seen us on those days and loved us and appreciated us anyway.  Wow.  It impacted me profoundly because your appreciation so clearly mirrored the love of a Savior who longs to wrap His arms fully around all of us--with all of our faults and shortcomings--and declare before the world, "Mine!"

Thanks, so much, for demonstrating that love, a perfect love, to us!  It was the perfect capstone to an amazing 2013/2014 school year!


Grateful for the opportunity to serve this school and your family,

You Are Invited!  Take Part in the Annual NCS Summer Reading Program  

Multiply at Northwest Christian School
Multiply at Northwest Christian School
Annual tradition helps to bring focus and purpose to the coming school year--and ICE CREAM!


As part of an annual, ongoing tradition, the faculty, students, and families of Northwest Christian are invited to participate in a summer reading.  The summer reading is the springboard for the spiritual theme for the coming school year.  "Each summer," says superintendent Geoff Brown, "the high school student council and other student leaders work through the summer reading and they prayerfully use what they're hearing from the Lord throughout the summer to set the course for the coming year.  The reading and the theme they choose impacts so many different aspects of our school culture and areas of emphasis and opportunity."


This year, the summer reading is taking a two-prong approach.


For the faculty, parents, and secondary students, the school is inviting everyone to read through 'Multiply' by Francis Chan.  "Within our faculty devotions on Friday mornings," says Geoff, "we started working through the book in January.  The book presents the basics of Biblical discipleship and it has served to encourage us to really focus our time and attention as educators on the primary mission:  making disciples of Jesus Christ.  During faculty and staff appreciation week, the entire NCS team was given a second copy of the book and invited to prayerfully consider someone with whom they could work through the book."  This summer, the school will be sending out weekly emails which will feature videos that enable families and individuals to work through the book.  The book is free online and can be downloaded at:


NCS Summer Reading 2014

"For our elementary students," says Geoff, "developmentally, we are going in a bit of a different direction.  While we are hoping that families will work through the material found in Chan's 'Multiply' together, for our younger students, we are launching the 'Red Letter Summer'."  As part of the Red Letter Summer, students will have the opportunity to read through the gospels, one chapter each day.  "Then, at the end of the summer," continues Geoff, "those students who hit the goal will be invited to a 'Red Letter Ice Cream Party' that is being hosted by our friends at Cold Stone Creamery.  On July 30th, teachers and administrators will be behind the counter at Cold Stone and we'll be serving up free Red Letter Ice Cream treats to every student!  It will be a blast!"

Middle School Chess Team Wins "Governor's Cup" State Chess Tournament 

Middle school championship paves the way for new high school team launching next school year


Tanner Webb, Kaleb Morrow, Abby Kelley, and Christine Dubas represented Northwest Christian Middle School at the annual Governor's Cup Chess Tournament on April 26th and 27th.  The Governor's Cup tournament is a statewide competition for school-aged chess players (K through 12). Approximately 300 students qualify each year for this state championship tournament through wins in qualifying tournaments throughout the year.  The NCS Middle School team is an extension of the middle school AAA after school program and is coached by Kelvin Morrow. 


Governor's Cup tournament play extends over two days and starts at 9:00am each day.  The NCS Middle School team competed in the open division which even featured some qualifying high school freshmen.  Each team member played four to five games against 17 different teams from Arizona schools.  After two brutal days of intense competition, the NCS clinched the top spot, bringing the Governor's Cup home to Northwest Christian for the first time. 


Brothers Gavin and Drake Rao also represented NCS at the tournament playing in the K through 3rd grade section. Each scored 5 individual points, finishing a strong 42nd place out of 97 schools - an excellent showing for a two-player team.


The growing elementary and middle school program is finally feeding into a high school competitive chess program that is preparing to launch in the 2014/2015 school year.  During the past year, twice a week, between 15 and 25 chess club members have been gathering in room 218 and exercising their chess playing prowess.  In the second half of the year, partnering with Chess Emporium, NCS brought in a chess coach to begin preparing the team for competition.

Jr. Crusaders Program Grows in Scope, Mission, and Competitiveness 


10-12 year old Jr Crusader team wins CCV basketball league championship


After going 11-0 in the regular season, the 10-12 year old Jr. Crusader basketball team went 3-0 in the CCV Stars season-ending spring basketball tournament and won the championship.  The team, consisting of NCS students and coached by Jesse Bracamante, included sixth grader Cameron Adams.  "If the first half of the championship game," explains Cameron, "we were struggling.  We were tired and we weren't playing that well.  At half-time, we talked, we encouraged each other.  We had to play defense more and we had to take higher percentage shots.  In the second half, it finally came together."


Cameron also explains one of the benefits of playing within the Jr. Crusaders--growing relationships with friends, finding new friends, and having opportunities to grow in their walks with Christ.  "At the beginning of the season," he says, "I had one friend I knew, a friend that I had played with before.  The other guys I got to know throughout the season.  We all worked together, grew closer, and got better."

Now in its third year, the Jr. Crusaders elementary athletic program was started with the aspiration of providing opportunities like those Cameron describes for all students.  "The program isn't about growing our athletic prowess," explains elementary principal Dawna Underwood.  "We started the program for one reason:  relationships.  These teams are a forum for new relationships to form and grow--for new students to get integrated, for existing students to grow their friend groups.  To build out inclusivity within the school culture.  At the same time, it's another opportunity to speak to the spiritual growth of the kids."  The program, under coordinator Darcy Bracamonte, found its strongest footing in the 2013/2014 school year.  With close to 60 students participating on seven teams, coed elementary students are playing basketball, soccer, baseball, and volleyball.  "Darcy has been a Godsend," says Dawna.  "She really has taken the vision of relationships to the next level."

Information about the fall Jr. Crusader season--which will include the school's very first elementary cross country team--will be headed towards email in-boxes and family's mailboxes in mid-June.

High School Speech Team Captures Win at ASU Speech Tournament   
Team wins "Golden Sparky Cup" after competition at ASU West


In only it's second year of existence, the high school speech club turned in a surprise win at the "Sparky's Call" tournament on April 25th and 26th.  Organized and sponsored by the Communication Assessment Learning Lab (CALL) on the campus of the ASU West campus, the tournament is an opportunity for high school speech teams from across the state to learn and compete.


On Friday, April 25th, the NCS team--consisting of Ryan Thompson, Paolo Pascua, and Andres Garcia and coached by Trish Richards--spent the day on the ASU West campus working with undergraduate peer mentors, planning strategy, practicing, and ultimately competing in three rounds of presentations.  Having performed well in the semi-finals, the team was one of four teams that had the opportunity to compete in the finals of the tournament on Saturday, April 26th.  After the second day of competition, the team was thrilled to be awarded the "Golden Sparky Cup" as the tournament's top performers.

Houston Johnson Wins National Short Story Contest Through Daughters of the American Revolution    
Three students place well in state, regional, and national DAR contests



In one of the final elementary chapels of the school, NCS students were visited by three representatives from the Daughters of the American Revolution and learned that three of their own--Houston Johnson, Haylie Bolesta, and Kolton Olson--did very well in DAR-sponsored contests. 

Kolton and Haylie placed first within their grades within the annual stamp contest.  Haylie went on to win first place in the region as well. 

Houston Johnson's short story entry took first place in both state and regional contests and then went on to earn top honors in the national DAR short story contest.

Crusaders Track and Field Team Finishes Race Season Strong at State Meet
Team moves up a division, lands two state championship performances, and breaks several standing school records



After moving up a division within AIA track and field, Northwest Christian coaches Brandon Southall, Ben Sheets, and Craig Davidson (with assistants Michael Haslim and Hunter McShaneg) might have had reason to worry how their team would stack up against larger public schools in the state championship meet. "The girls finished 13th overall and I might add that Symone (Wright-Flowers) was a State Champion in 2 events, boys broke the 4x800 school record, and Cade (Richards) broke the 2 mile school record at State," said Southall.  It was a strong showing from the 14 Northwest Christian athletes who qualified for 19 events at the state meet.  Symone Wright-Flowers captured State Championships in the 200 meter dash and the 400 meter dash and finished 5th in the 100 meter dash.  Symone was also part of the team that included Casey Trout, Taylor Pearson, and Elaina Fenn which finished 8th overall in the 4 x 100 meter relay.


The season also yielded fruit beyond trophies and medals--Senior Elaina Fenn is looking forward to continuing her track career in college after landing a significant track and field scholarship at Georgian Court in New Jersey.

Middle School Math Cracks the Top Ten in AATM Competition
Annual algebra test allows first-year algebra students to compete in statewide contest

  AATM logo

May brought exciting news to NCS as the school learned that two Northwest Christian seventh grade students cracked the top ten list of the strongest performers in the annual statewide algebra contest sponsored by the Arizona Association of Teachers of Mathematics.  The contest is open to all Algebra 1-2 students and took place on May 6th.  NCS 7th graders Alissa Jensen and Kenna Nagler tied and grabbed the spot together.  Northwest Christian joins only two other schools--All Saints Episcopal Day School and St. Gregory College Prep--with students in the top ten for the state.


The Arizona Association of Teachers of Mathematics (AATM) promotes itself as a leader in mathematics education, ensuring that all students have access to the highest quality mathematics teaching and learning.  AATM presents a comprehensive, collaborative math education community while also supporting math teachers who seek to implement best practices within their classrooms.


Within Northwest Christian, the opportunity for 7th graders to be involved in an accelerated math curriculum is about three years old.  Through placement testing, students who ably demonstrate aptitude are afforded the opportunity to move forward within math.  Once they demonstrate aptitude in math, these students can begin taking high school math courses as part of their 8th grade schedule.  "I am so proud of their accomplishments," says middle school principal Samantha Maszton, "and proud of a system that allows them to experience success.  I am very much looking forward to what these young ladies accomplish in the future."

Kindergarten Service Project Connects Students to Ronald McDonald House
NCS kindergarteners recognized for collecting the most pop tabs to benefit kids with illnesses and their families


As part of the Northwest Christian K-12 service learning program, each grade level, K-8, is paired with a service learning partner that allows opportunities for students to see, experience, and assist in areas of need within the community in ways that are tangible and meaningful.  (For high school students, over 40 such projects are available.)  For NCS kindergarten students, the service learning partner is Ronald McDonald House Charities, an organization committed to meeting the needs of children with debilitating, chronic, and long-term illnesses while also providing support and resources to their families.  The organization has local chapters in 58 countries around the world with programs represented within 78% of the world's best children's hospitals, has raised over $200 million, and annually serves 7 million families affected by illness.

Ronald McDonald House Charities annually collects pop tabs--the little aluminum tabs on the top of soda cans--as a means of teaching kids about philanthropy and the importance of recycling while raising funds to help children and their families at the same time. Some RMHC Chapters raise thousands of dollars with their pop tab collections - up to $30,000.  For NCS kindergartners, the collection becomes a tangible way through which they can connect their own personal efforts to real need, thereby demonstrating the love of Christ in a developmentally appropriate way.

This year, NCS kindergartners were honored for winning the "Pop Tab Challenge", a contest sponsored by RMHC that inspired students to collect as many tabs as they could.  NCS kindergartners averaged an amazing 1.84 pounds of pop tabs per student!  That is a lot of pop tabs!  As well, and more meaningfully, that's a lot of demonstrable love and opportunities for learning to put the needs of others above your own.

Varsity Baseball Finishes Dream Season as State Runners-up 
Sophomore Drew Inness makes a diving catch in state championship game
Coach Rod Bair sees great potential for a young team in the next few seasons


Though it was apparent that the 2014 Crusader team had talent, early expectations by press and pundits were quickly eclipsed as the season progressed.  Approaching state tournament play, the young team went on a 18-game win streak that was capped off with a run-rule win over Valley Christian in state semi-finals.


The dream season ended with a narrow 5-4 loss to Palo Verde in the state championship game at Surprise Stadium on Saturday, May 18th.  Throughout the season, the team made a routine of demonstrating its 'never say die' attitude through a series of 'on the edge' and 'come-from-behind' miracle wins.

With just a handful of seniors, coach Rod Bair is optimistic about the team's future and is looking forward to the possibility of perennial power performances within the state tournament.

Amber Perona Looks Towards Opportunity in Africa 
Amber last visited Rwanda in 2012
2005 alum leads marketing and PR efforts at the school, has a passion for international missions


Amber Perona has come full circle.  After graduating from NCS in 2005, she went to Northern Arizona University.  There, she majored in marketing, graduating in 2009.  After working in several different locales--most notably Washington, D.C. and Hawaii--the Lord has brought her full circle to Northwest Christian where she now has the pleasure of working with some of the same teachers who had her as a student within the classrooms. 


Amber's role at NCS now includes all the school's marketing and messaging.  She spearheads school events like homecoming and Jog-a-thon, manages school contributions, oversees the school website, manages alumni relations, and the like.  As well, she a vital link in communication efforts like the Spotlight newsletter and the Week-at-a-Glance. 


But, like so many other NCS staff members, Amber is intricately involved in the school's spiritual mission on many levels.  This is where her passion for Northwest Christian and missions intersects.  She was a cornerstone in last year's Liquid Hope ministry project that culminated in a summer 2013 trip to Haiti.  During the summer of 2012, she was part of a ministry team that traveled to Rwanda.  Similarly, the Lord has used her as part of ministry teams that have traveled to Uganda, Swaziland, and Mexico. 


Now, an interesting opportunity has presented itself and Amber has the opportunity to travel to Rwanda as part of a trip sponsored by International Justice Mission and Noonday Collection.  Noonday is a non-profit that uses fashion as a tool to empower women within third world nations.  The organization buys jewelry and apparel from these women and sells it as part of an effort to fund and equip these women to improve their situation and that of the communities in which they live.  Amber is one of 300 nominees who are competing for an all-expenses-paid trip to Rwanda this summer.  Working with seven different Christian authors headed to Rwanda, she would have the chance to visit the locales that are being served by IJM and Noonday and be charged with communicating the urgency of their mission upon returning home.


As one of 300 nominees, votes are being collected between now and May 28th.  If you would be interested in voting for Amber, please visit:


Once you're at the site, you have the option of closing out the 'ask' for contact info and you can place your vote for Amber once per day until the end of the month.

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.
