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 all the many kind blessings God has given to our school by demonstrating 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.” NRCA is firmly rooted in its mission, built up in Him, and established in the faith, resulting in an attitude that overflows with gratitude.
Leaving a Legacy Giving Opportunities:
• The Knights Annual Fund Drive
• The Golf & Tennis Classic
We are officially kicking off the 24th Leaving a Legacy giving year with the 2019-2020 Knights Annual Fund Drive. The generous support of our school family, grandparents, and friends allows NRCA to fund many wonderful projects outside general tuition dollars. Through the 2018-2019 “Practicing the Kindness of Jesus” giving year, NRCA was able to renovate our elementary playground with two new playground structures and a rubberized playground surface. The Knights Tennis Complex was also completely renovated with the installation of a new rubberized Mondo playing surface, new nets, logoed windscreens, and scoring cards. Both of these projects were funded through our Leaving a Legacy Giving Events. Earlier projects made possible by the generosity of the NRCA community include the following: funding for tuition assistance, a robotics lab, a STEM lab, a Fine Arts Center grand piano, a greenhouse, minibuses, a coach bus, smart boards, iPads for grades K-12, and canopies for both playgrounds and stadium bleachers, just to name a few.
This year’s Knights Annual Fund, as one of NRCA’s annual Leaving a Legacy giving events, has a goal of raising $180,000 to help fund a much-needed Student Life Center renovation, a new NRCA minibus, our Tuition Assistance Program, and next year’s NRCA 25th Anniversary Celebration & Founder’s Day.
In 2 Corinthians 9:11, Paul writes, “You will be enriched in every way for all generosity, which produces thanksgiving to God through us.” Gratitude to God follows generosity from God’s people. NRCA is truly grateful for every gift and ministry partner. Please prayerfully consider supporting the 2019-2020 Leaving a Legacy Giving Events.
