Individual teacher and staff phone numbers no longer work when calling NRCA. You must first dial the main school number, 919-573-7900, and then either enter the person's extension, select an option from the opening greeting, or use the dial-by-name directory. What was previously a teacher’s individual telephone number is now their extension. For example, if a teacher’s number was previously 919-573-1652, their extension is now simply 1652. All of the direct telephone numbers will ring busy, with the exception of our main school number.

Many smart phones allow you to enter a comma or a pause when adding a phone number to your contacts. You can use this to add the main number along with the extension to your contacts. For example, to add the above number to a contact, you can enter 9195737900,1652.

As a reminder, below is the opening greeting you will hear when calling the main number:

This is what you will hear when you call the school number.

2017 Junior/Senior Banquet 
RSVP By: March 8


All female students or female guests attending the banquet are required to have their dresses pre-approved by the school. Each girl (including non-NRCA students) attending the Junior-Senior Banquet is required to have her dress approved at least two weeks prior to the banquet date. NRCA students and their dates should be high school age or older. See dress code policy. Dresses should reflect a spirit of modesty. General guidelines include: dresses that do not have straps must be modest, slits should be no more than two inches above the knee, midriffs should be covered (no see-through materials), and low necklines and plunging backs are inappropriate. Girls failing to meet the approved guidelines or the required modifications may be asked to wear a shawl during the banquet. In extreme cases, they may not be permitted to attend. Consequences for dress code violations are at the discretion of the administration and may result in a Saturday detention.

NRCA's fifth-grade choir, Knights of Note, has been selected to perform at Meymandi Concert Hall in the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts as part of the 19th annual Elementary Choral Celebration. This event, sponsored by the Raleigh Fine Arts Society, takes place on Thursday, March 30, and brings together elementary choirs throughout Wake County for an evening of music sharing. Knights of Note will have the opportunity to sing two songs for an adjudicator, who will critique their performance and give feedback for growth and improvement. They will also be combining with seven other choirs to perform three "massed" songs for the audience of parents, teachers, principals and other administrators.
One of the benefits of this experience is having a choral clinician come to campus several times to work with the singers on different elements of vocal technique and performance. Marshall Butler, retired choral director at Sanderson High School, is NRCA's clinician and recently worked with the fifth-grade choir on breathing and phrasing within their music. He will return on March 2 for a second session with the students.
The Knights of Note look forward to singing on a professional concert stage and representing NRCA with their high level of excellence.

Every year during the Valentine’s season, seniors run through the halls clad in pink and red singing their favorite love songs because Valentine’s Day at NRCA means seniors get to deliver Valograms to all elementary, middle school and high school classrooms. “I couldn’t believe I was finally old enough to be doing Valograms,” senior Reba Miller said. “It really hit me when the first room we went to visit was Mrs. Roberts’, my kindergarten teacher.”

Valograms are sent across the school by students, parents and teachers. They include a Valentine’s Day message, paired with a combination of candy, flowers and a performance of a

song. “I love seeing the seniors all dressed up and excited to be celebrating Valentine’s Day,” junior Savannah Hunt said. “I especially love when they sing to teachers because it visibly brightens their day.”

This year, students had the option of selecting from two new songs: “All You Need is Love” by The Beatles and “Ain’t no Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell. “My favorite of the new songs is ‘Ain’t no Mountain High Enough,’” senior Nicole Tiu said. “It’s just such an irresistible jam.”

The day before distributing Valograms, the seniors worked hard to make the special day run smoothly. Every senior came in, either right after school or at 6:00 p.m., to sort cards, bag candy and assemble Valograms for delivery. Faculty Valogram coordinator Mrs. Canady said, “It was a big help that the seniors came out and helped organize the whole process.”

Valograms are an opportunity for the seniors to have fun spreading love around the school and for others to take a brief break from class to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Senior Chase Leslie said, “I loved being able to sing with all the seniors because I always thought that was what the ‘big kids’ did, and now we are the big kids.”

Please help NRCA display a good Christian witness to the neighborhood by not using the neighborhood entrance to drop off students, to enter to drop off students in the student parking area then exiting back out the neighborhood entrance, or to cut the line by driving by the field house to enter the main car line. We have received calls from the neighborhood expressing their concerns about not being able to get out of their driveway and cars not stopping at the stop sign, and people being inconsiderate by honking at the neighbors as they try to get out of their driveways. Please extend the courtesy to our neighbors of letting them exit their driveways into the traffic.  The neighborhood entrance is for our student driversPlease use the soccer gate entrance for entrance to the car line. Thank you for your help with this matter.

Congratulations to fifth-graders Charlie Beguelin and Mollie Shoaf, who auditioned and were selected as members of the 2016 North Carolina Music Educators Association Elementary Honors Chorus.  Approximately 600 students auditioned for 150 spots in the chorus, so the competition was tough.

The honors chorus presented a final concert at the Stevens Center in Winston-Salem to culminate the event.

This is the highest level of choral achievement for a middle school singer. Only 145 singers were selected for this year's group, with over 700 students auditioning from around the state.

Wingate Middle School Choral Celebration Features Six NRCA Singers

On Friday, February 3, MaKayla Ciancanelli, Josiah Fox, Emily McAteer, Aaliyah Pugh, Ivan Tew and Madeline Walter traveled to Wingate University for two days to participate in the 12th-annual Middle School Choral Celebration. This was the first time that NRCA had representatives at this festival.

This seventh- and eighth-grade selected group was comprised of singers from around North Carolina. About 100 singers participated in the event, working with guest conductor Mr. Robert Waller, Cultural Arts/AIG Curriculum Specialist for the Buncombe County School System. Celebration participants presented a final concert on February 4 that included a song with the Wingate University Singers.

The NRCA singers noted that joining with other choir students from around the state helped all participants reach new levels. "Everyone there was good and knew their music well, so we could rise to the next level," one NRCA middle school student said.
