New Horizon Christian School

Crusader Connection: September 3rd-September 9th

“The news you need, not the fluff.”

Happy Monday!!!

I hope you enjoyed your long weekend and were able to spend some time with your loved ones.

I love this time of year where we transition from summer to fall. The different seasons really are one of my favorite parts about living where we live.

Be sure to read the newsletter to stay in the know of all the things going on at and around NHCS.

If you'd like to reach me, you can email me at or 618-533-6910.

Blessings and have a wonderful week,

Mrs. Malekovic

Theme for the 2023-2024

This school year we will focus on:

The Good News:

Jesus Came

He Died

He Arose

He Ascended

He's Coming Back


We will be celebrating people's testimonies and how they came to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.

News from Ms. Alex in the Office

Please remember to let the office know if your child is getting picked up early. This will allow us to have them ready to go for you.

You can call the school at 618-533-6910 or email Ms. Alex at

Please verify that you have the correct email address for Ms. Alex. I had misspelled crusaders before.

We really are so blessed by her and her presences in the office. I have seen her praying with students, showing them how to tie their shoes, and just loving on students. She is the best!!

3rd-5th Grade Cheer Coach

We are looking for a cheer coach for this group of girls. It may be easier to have a couple of moms do it together so it isn't so much work. The first game is September 26th and the season ends with a tournament at NHCS on the weekend of October 20th-21st. There are games every Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We are still looking.

Save the Date-Fall Festival

NHCS will take over the Schwartz Orchard on Saturday, October 14th at 6 pm. More details to come. This is a fun night where families can come together to socialize and do orchard things.
