I hope that you and your child had a great experience with NCLC this year and are looking forward to a great summer! Congratulations to all our Kindergarten graduates!

We had a great time with the children during our last chapel of the year on May 23 and 24th. The younger children learned about sharing things you enjoy with your friends and the older children saw how Franklin learned to say, “I’m sorry.” We will be having chapel again next year. They are so much fun for the children and the Pastors really enjoy the children.

Please continue to ask your children about the worksheets or crafts they bring home that relate to the Bible stories they have heard. It really helps them remember.

During the week of July 10th – 14th we will be having Vacation Bible Camp (VBC) at NCLC. The children (and teachers) had so much fun over the last few years we wanted to provide this experience for the children again this year. This year, the children will be experiencing in “Maker Fun Factory” that God made all of us and loves us. God is always for us and will never leave us. He also made us for a reason, for a purpose. We will have opening and closing activities in the fellowship hall with Community Chapel VBC, and divide into their normal classrooms during the rest of the morning.

This year, Community Chapel is having VBC at the same time NCLC is. So, If your child is not going to be in NCLC this summer and is in elementary school (grades 1-6) or in PreK or Kindergarten (ages 4 or 5) they are invited to come to VBC at Community Chapel! For more information, please call the church at 603-883-8345. If they will be attending NCLC, they will automatically be involved in VBC.

I hope you have a great summer! We will here at NCLC. If you have any family issues or concerns over the summer please feel free to call. I would like to pray with you and help you in any way I or the church can. Or if you have any questions or would like to talk with me, please give me a call, 603-883-4356.

musical noteNancy’s Notes

As another school year comes to a close, I am reminded how fortunate I am to be able to sing and dance with your children, and watch them grow musically.

This year, in addition to working with toddler, preschool and kindergarten classes, I have been working with the infants. It is amazing to me to see how much even the littlest children respond to music. They sit and stare at my animated facial expressions while I sing, and often they will bounce up and down or shake their arms when I start playing or singing music. They love my great big “gathering drum”, because they can all fit around it and bang on it together, and sometimes even climb on it!

The toddlers have our music class routine down solid. As soon as they enter the room, they sit right down and begin tapping their knees to the beat of our “Hello” song. Many of them are already singing parts of the songs in tune, and are able to march to the beat for short periods of time!

The preschoolers have really grown in their ability to use different parts of their bodies to show the beat of the music, and to adeptly play rhythm instruments to different kinds of beats and rhythms. Now they will all sing out as a group, which is something they did not do as toddlers. They especially love some of the games we play with the parachute or the teddy bears.

The kindergartners have all come so far in their music skills! They can execute a circle dance, play drums to the beat of the music, and many of them can sing entire songs in tune. It has been a joy to make music with these children, and I will miss them very much as they move on to first grade!

Happy Singing!
