The marvelous thing about learning style
is that every teacher can help to provide
a warm prevailing breeze to lift all those “Kites”
and help them soar. Sometimes the strings may
get tangled up, but now we can understand how
a little more dimension and space can keep them
free and flying.

– Emilie Piper

How does that fundraiser money get used?

We know that parents may question the reason for fundraising campaigns and we know that they may become burdensome. We want you to know how much we depend on the proceeds and how much we appreciate your loyalty and participation.

Proceeds from each sale enable us to keep the cost of tuition down and allow us to provide an enriched school experience for your child. Our fall fundraiser earned $2,000.00. We hope that our spring fundraising campaign will surpass our profits from our fall campaign.

I would like to share with you how the proceeds are being spent. Here are some of the exciting things we have already done and plan to do for the remainder of the school year.

  • Special Events
  • Playground Equipment
    • Fresh layer of play sand for both playgrounds
    • Playground toys
  • Educational/Curriculum Needs
    • Math manipulatives, science kits, electronics, games
    • Special craft supplies

School Pride

reading the BibleNCLC Pastor’s Corner

March is here already! The days are getting longer. I hope you and your family have had an opportunity to enjoy this winter. It is almost over.

Last month we began the season of Lent on February 14th. Lent is the 40 days before Easter when we think about how God demonstrated His love for us by paying the price for our sin on the cross. I hope you and your family take some time to reflect on why that was necessary, and how willing God was to do that for us. He must love us a lot!

The children will be singing the song “Hosanna” this month in preparation for Palm Sunday which is March 25th and Easter is April 1st. It is a fun song. Even the younger toddlers enjoy it. We will be singing it together in Chapel – March 22nd. Hope you can come and sing it with us.

Your child will be bringing home pictures they have colored and possibly a craft project relating to the story they have heard. Please ask them about the story. It will help them remember.

Upcoming Events:

Please plan to come to the Easter Egg Hunt at Community Chapel on March 24th from 9 to 11am. We will be having breakfast, a short devotional, and lots of eggs to hunt throughout our building. Children from toddlers through 5th grade and their parents are invited to join the fun.

If you do not have a place to celebrate Easter or the events of Holy Week leading up to Easter, we would love to have you join us.

  • Palm Sunday, March 25th – Services at 9am and 10:30am with classes for children at the same times
  • Maundy Thursday, March 29th – Service at 6:30
    Good Friday Meditations, March 30th – Service at 12:00 noon in the Fellowship Hall
  • Prayer Walk, Saturday, March 31st – 9am at Nashua North High School
  • Easter Sunday, April 1 – One service at 10am at Nashua North High School

A Request: If there are any changes in your family, please let me know. Changes in the family, even the loss of a well-loved pet, can deeply affect a child. We would like to be aware so that we can help your child through this difficult time. And, I would like to pray for you and your child and help you in any way that I or Community Chapel can help.

If you have any questions about my role at NCLC, the Bible curriculum, helping your child develop his/her relationship with God, or any family concerns, please call me at NCLC, 603-883-4356.

musical noteNancy’s Notes

During the month of February, we had a lot of fun playing drums and learning circle dances. My hand drums are just the right size for small people, and we experimented with playing different levels of the beat (fast, slow) and different dynamics (loud, soft) to the music. Another fun activity we did with the drums was to pretend that they are the steering wheel of a car as we sing, “vroom, vroom, ridin’ in the car.” For our circle dance, we waved rainbow streamers over our heads while marching in a circle. The music is divided into two sections, “A” and “B”. When we hear the “A” section we march in a circle and when we hear the “B” section, we march into the center of the circle, raising our streamers up in the air. This activity teaches the children about the form, or structure of a piece of music (subconsciously, of course!), and they learn to really listen.

Next month I will be bringing in the very popular kitchen “instruments” and singing cooking/kitchen songs with the children. We’ll probably do some train songs as well as they are another favorite.

Happy Singing!
