Congratulations to eighth-grader Ivan Tew who auditioned and was selected to participate in the 2017 North Carolina Music Educators Association Middle School Honors Chorus. This is the highest level of choral achievement for a middle school singer. Only 144 singers were selected for this year's group, with many hundreds more auditioning from around the state. This is Ivan's second year being selected to participate.

Tew will gather with the other selected singers during the NCMEA Conference in Winston-Salem in November to work with guest conductor Dr. Jonathan Palant, from the University of Texas at Dallas. They will present a final concert at the Stevens Center in Winston-Salem to culminate the event.

Congratulations to fifth-graders Dallas Bell, Hannah Miller and Kelsey Pizzino, who auditioned and were selected as members of the 2017 North Carolina Music Educators Association Elementary Honors Chorus.

Bell, Miller and Pizzino will gather with the other participants during the NCMEA Conference in Winston-Salem in November to work with guest conductor Elizabeth Hogan McFarland, from the University of Missouri. The honors chorus will present a final concert at the Stevens Center in Winston-Salem to culminate the event.

We have partnered with NC for Puerto Rico, an organization working to provide disaster relief aid to those devastated by Hurricane Maria. Through your generous contribution, and the kindness and hard work of the NRCA student body, we were able to deliver a full truckload of supplies to the NC for Puerto Rico warehouse, where it was itemized and shipped to Puerto Rico.  These supplies will then be distributed throughout the hardest hit areas of the island and various municipalities.

I am so thankful for your prayers and kind words of encouragement. I am truly blessed that I am part of such a faithful community of believers. Your willingness to be the hands and feet of God was evident. I am overwhelmed by such an outpouring of your generosity in helping all those affected by the hurricane.

It is because of your generosity many people will be blessed and helped with the necessary basic supplies. Again, many thanks for your support. It means the world to my family and the people in PR who will be blessed through your donations.

In Christ,
Mrs. Wendy Molina & Family

Revised Carline

Dear Parents,

Two Things:

  1. Safety and Procedure
  2. Proposed Two-Lanes versus Three-Lanes Unloading

First, let me thank you for your patience in the morning and afternoon carlines. Please know that NRCA always seeks safety first. I know you appreciate the officers who control the traffic each day. NRCA assumes the costs to hire them so we know that everyone can arrive and depart safely. To ensure safety for all, we request that you assist us by the following:

  1. When you turn into the carpool entrance, please stay in the right lane coming from 401 and the left lane coming from Capital until you are past the soccer field. This is so we can move cars from 401 and Capital onto the property at the same time. Many times, cars from 401 are moving over into the left lane upon entrance and it does not allow the cars from Capital to turn in.

  2. Please unload at the designated areas.

  3. Please watch your speed particularly around curves and buildings.

  4. Please abide by the directions given by staff at crosswalks and unloading areas.

  5. Please do not get out of your car. This will expedite departures.

  6. Please have your children ready as you approach the unloading area (shoes on, book bags ready, breakfast eaten, kisses, etc.

Second, last week, we have Mr. Picard do analysis of carline for the morning drop-off. Our goal was to evaluate what we might do to speed up the process. As to the proposal: It has been recommended that we go to two lines instead of three in the unloading area. We will lengthen the two unloading lines. Both lines 1 and 2 will stop at the end of the canopy nearest the exit. Lane 3 will be coned so that it is a more natural merge into Lane 2. The diagram is below and is also on our website, www.nrcaknights.com.

The research showed we have 12 cars on average in line 1 and 8 cars in line 2, and 8 cars in line 3. It took about 2 minutes 20 seconds to unload all three lanes. If we lenghten lane 2 and remove lane 3, we can put 13 cars in both lane 1 and 2, just two less cars than with 3 lanes but unload 30 seconds quicker. We are going to try it for two weeks. Again, please be patient as we seek to make this work.

Many have asked how we can help our fellow schools in the Houston area. We have the Association of Christian Schools (ACSI) and the Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools (SBACS) reviewing and appraising the needs of our sister schools in the area. We are also reaching out to the ACSI District Representative for the Texas area. Joshua Expeditions is also making contacts with local authorities about bringing groups to help with restoration.

It is too early to access where the greatest need lies. In many cases, the Christian schools were not heavily damaged. However, many of the school staff and school families suffered greatly. The devastation is immense. 

Hopefully, we will know in the next couple of weeks. Wesley Scott, Executive Director of SBACS, is flying to Houston Sept. 28 to provide some direction.

If you desire to give a donation, we are starting a fund that will be used to assist Christian schools in the area. You can give online and designate the gift for "Houston Christian School Relief". Once we know specific needs, we will communicate our plan to assist our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Please pray for our fellow believers in this most difficult time and for those in the islands and Florida who are facing another catastrophic storm.

Houston Christian School Relief Fund

Yours for Kingdom education,
Dr. S.L. Sherrill
