5th Grade Post

Week of Monday, November 16-20

Vanderbilt Women's Basketball Game

We will once again be attending Education Day at Vanderbilt University Monday, November 23. More information will be sent home soon.

Scholastic Order Going Home Monday!

There will be a Scholastic Flyer sent home with your child on Monday! This is a great opportunity to get some Christmas presents. I will place the order December 9th and there is guaranteed delivery by December 18th!

Cereal Drive

NCS is holding a campus wide cereal collection for a local food bank in dire need. The Ark of South Cheatham is a nonprofit organization that helps those in need in Kingston Springs and Pegram. Families who have lost jobs, senior citizens with little income, and many others benefit from the work of the Ark. Through next Friday, 11/20, the entire campus is collecting boxes of cereal. The campus wide goal is 500 boxes. The elementary portion of that goal is 150 boxes. Please consider helping us by sending in boxes of cereal. Your child should turn their cereal into their classroom teacher. There will be a daily update on the poster outside of Mrs. Greenlee’s room. What a wonderful way to show God’s love to the community! Questions? greenlees@nashvillechristian.org

We have set a goal for 5th grade (as a whole) to bring in 100 boxes. As of Friday afternoon we have 12! If 100 boxes (OR MORE) are brought in by Friday, November 20th, we will have a fun surprise for 5th grade!

Praise and Thanksgiving Feast

This is a SCHOOLWIDE event that takes place the Tuesday before Thanksgiving break. We are able to join together as one big family to praise and give thanks!

5th grade families need to bring dessert.

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, November 24th! This is a very important event at Nashville Christian School, and many families attend! Information in picture below.
