Remember, as fans, we represent New Horizon Christian School and what our school stands for. I know it's easy to get wrapped up into a game and see things that we don't agree with, but we need to remember many coaches are volunteer and, most of the time, officials are doing their best to make fair calls. Also know, that if you are ejected from a game by an official you will not be allowed to the attend the next 2 games per SIJHSAA rules and regulations. If you are ejected twice, you will have a 5 game suspension. If you are ejected 3 times, you will not be allowed to attend any extra curricular activities at NHCS the remainder of the year.

Outside Recess

Please send your child to school with winter attire. We will take students outside for recess if the real feel temperature is 40 degrees or above. They need to run around and get some fresh air.

Inclement Weather

If weather gets bad and school needs to be canceled for everyone's safety, we will make the decision as soon as we can to allow you to make child care arrangements. We will post on Facebook, email, and through OneCallNow(our texting service).

8th Grade Spotlight

An 8th grade chapel is planned out from start to finish by the student. They are in charge of finding songs, singers if they choose, a speaker, and many other things. We will spotlight one of our 8th graders each week leading up to graduation.

This week's chapel was led by Robert C. Robert has been a student at NHCS since he was in 6th grade. You may also remember him from the Christmas program as Charley Chummly. This year's Christmas Program was his favorite memory from NHCS. His favorite verse is Genesis 1:1. He can not wait to get a car and his driver's license. His advice to younger students is to be you and have fun!

Absences or Appointments

If your child is going to be absent from school or late because of appointments, please notify the office. Many times teachers are aware but get busy teaching or helping students and forget to let the office know. Also, they don’t always check their devices throughout the day. This will avoid us having to call you when they are absent to figure out what's going on.

Thanks for your cooperation.

PTF Meeting

The next PTF Meeting will be Wednesday, March 1st in the board room at 5pm. Hope to see you there!
