|The Pi Day 5K and Fun Run is rapidly approaching! In fact, it is just over a month from now on Saturday, March 14th. Register now for you and your child to participate. We will be honoring the class with the most participation (by percentage) with a pizza party and an award after the race!
It is called the Pi Day 5K because it is on March 14th, which is Pi Day, or 3.14. In addition to the race and fun run, there will be some fun activities related to Pi Day, and the 5K race will actually be 3.14 miles instead of the normal 3.1. This event is designed to meet the interests of all people. If you are a serious runner, you can come and challenge yourself to improve your time, or even win the race. If you are just a recreational runner, or maybe not a runner at all, you could also walk the route and just enjoy the fellowship with NCCS family member. Also, if you have friends or family who may like to participate, invite them as well. We want to make this a fun event for the entire NCCS community.
Register online at Fleetfeetstlouis.com or RaceRoster.com by searching North County Stronger Together 5K. All students planning to participate can register on this form (students will not be charged to participate. More information can be found on the form). We are clearing all previous student race registrations for clarity's sake on our end. If you have registered your student for the previous race, please fill out the form again. The t-shirt deadline is February 28.
Race sponsorships are still available. If you or your company are interested in getting involved, feel free to send Molly Farmer an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

|Orchestra students play at School Choice Rally in Jefferson City
|Last week Dr. Clark, Mrs. Springer and Mr. Moss traveled with our NCCS Elementary, Middle, and High School Orchestra students to Jefferson City to play in the Rotunda of the State Capitol for the School Choice Rally.The event is to encourage government allowing for school choice. This is the 2nd year NCCS has been a part of this Nationwide event. Schools from all over the state attended the rally.
Sixth grade student Angela Muex said, "I enjoyed the whole experience of traveling with the band. Being in 6th grade and getting this chance was great! I liked hearing all the bands playing their songs. I made even more friends on this field trip. Can't wait until the next one!"
Senior Colin Nicks chimed in with, "I liked the trip to Jefferson City, because it was an extremely encouraging event. The rally allowed me to hear from other private Christian schools, and see how many kids just like me are pursuing excellence in their music. Playing in the state capitol is a chance not a lot of people get, and I was honored to go." Eighth grader Francesca Manahan added, "I think getting to see other schools play, and learning about the privilege we have when it comes to NCCS, was a fun experience."
|Chemistry and 4th grade classes spark their curiosity & learn how electricity works
|By Victoria Bovey, NCCS Senior
NCCS chemistry students conducted an electricity experiment with NCCS fourth graders on Jan. 24 in NCCS science teacher Alan Blize’s room. The fourth graders were paired up with the chemistry students, to work together in their experiment. They were trying to light up two to three little light bulbs by connecting multiple wires to a big battery.
This was a great way to connect elementary and high school students together to show unity. “It was cool to work with the younger kids at school, because we don’t get to see them that often,” NCCS junior Wade Ragland said.
It was a very heartwarming scene to watch the chemistry students help the fourth graders learn how electricity works. “It was very fun to work with the fourth graders and their reactions when their light bulb lit up,” NCCS junior Jenny Rosenfeld said. This was a great educational experience for not only the fourth graders, but also for the chemistry class. During the lab, Blize and NCCS fourth grade teacher, Jonathan Kline, supervised the experiment to ensure safety.
