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.

Spring Fundraiser

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 $1,800.00. 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

NCLC 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.

This month we began the season of Lent on March 6th. 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. There are all kinds of emotions connected with this season:

  • Sorrow that such a sacrifice was necessary because of our sin
  • Wonder at the depth of God’s love for us
  • Gratefulness for God’s willingness to go to such lengths for us
  • And many more …

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 April 14th and Easter is April 21st. It is a fun song. Even the younger toddlers enjoy it. We will be singing it together in Chapel – April 10th. 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 April 13th from 9 to 11am. We will be having breakfast, a short devotional, and lots of eggs to hunt throughout our building. Children of all ages 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, April 14th – Services at 9am and 10:30am with classes for children at the same times
  • Maundy Thursday, April 18th – Service and Family Dinner at 6:30 in the Fellowship Hall
  • Good Friday Meditations, April 19th – Service at 12:00 noon in the Fellowship Hall
  • Prayer Walk, Saturday, April 20th – 9am at Nashua High School North
  • Easter Sunday, April 21 – One service at 10am at Nashua High School North

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.

Nancy’s Notes

This is the time of year when I notice a jump in the musical development of the children. The littlest ones are able to imitate my movements when we sing, and some of them even sing one or two notes in tune. The preschoolers have learned enough songs that they can sing entire songs with me, and they often request their favorites! The pre-k and kindergartners are able to do a circle dance while singing and waving rainbow streamers to the beat, and experience the joy of moving all together as a group.

Next month we will begin to sing some of our spring songs, like “Robin Redbreast” and “Two Little Blackbirds”. We will also continue with lots of musical gross motor movement activities, such as making a train go around the room while we sing “This Train is Bound for Glory”. Working with children to help them establish the beat of the music in their feet and legs is very important to their musical development, and it is also a lot of fun. The children anticipate with glee the part of the song where the train, after climbing to the top of the hill now goes down, and they can all run around the room, following me as the conductor!

Happy Singing,

Nancy
