2019-2020 Theme: Attitude of Gratitude
The 2019-2020 schoolwide theme is “Attitude of Gratitude.” The definition of gratitude is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Since last year’s theme was kindness, this year NRCA would like to show appreciation for and return kindness to all the many blessings God has given to NRCA by showing an “Attitude of Gratitude”. Colossians 2:6-7 says, “Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.” Likewise, NRCA is firmly rooted in its mission, built up in Him, and established in the faith, resulting in an attitude that overflows with gratitude.
Giving Opportunities: The Annual Fund Drive, Boosterthon and the Golf & Tennis Classic
We are officially kicking off the 24th Legacy Annual Fund for 2019-2020. There are three components to the Legacy Annual Fund: (1) the Legacy Annual Fund Drive throughout the school year, (2) Boosterthon and (3) the Golf and Tennis Classic. This is an opportunity to give the gift of Kingdom education, a gift that impacts eternity. The generous support of our school family, grandparents, and friends allows us to fund many wonderful resources beyond the general budget. Last year we had the official ribbon cutting of not just our new Fitness Center I, but also the newly renovated Fitness Center 2. Both were done debt-free. Other resources made possible through the years by the Annual Fund are a Fine Arts Center grand piano, greenhouse, charter bus, tuition assistance, SmartBoards for the elementary, iPads K-12, school buses, canopies for the elementary playgrounds and outdoor sports venues, and other building programs to name a few.
