DID YOU KNOW?


From school wide programs to Charitable food drives - if it's happening at NCRC, then you should know about it!

SO SIT BACK AND READ MORE ABOUT WHAT OUR COMMUNITY IS UP TO BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT TO TELL YOU.



On Monday, December 12th, NCRC concluded a holiday drive to benefit the Black Student Fund, a local non-profit organization developed in 1964 that dedicates itself to "maintaining access to independent schools for black children from low to modest income households."

The outpouring of support from the NCRC community was fantastic. On pick-up day, a group of Bunny students joyfully plucked toys from the donation bin to walk down the sidewalk and deliver to the waiting BSF volunteer. "Doesn't helping others make your heart feel warm and happy?" one of the Bunnies was asked. They smiled and replied, "It does!" Yet another wonderful way to extend the reach of our school's incredible community, especially during the holiday season.

On Saturday, December 10th, a group of NCRC students and their grandparents spent the morning constructing gingerbread houses together (and snacking on some of the sweet siding) at the annual Grandparent Gingerbread Workshop. Graciously hosted by the grandparents of a current NCRC student, the event was full of careful architectural planning, frosting-tasting, stories from Dr. Wise, and lots of love.

Grandparents are a cherished part of our school community, because at NCRC, it's great to be grand!

On Saturday, December 3rd, the holiday happiness pouring from NCRC could be felt all the way down the hill. In the Motor Room, the beloved Mr. Lilo kept kids, parents, grandparents, and siblings singing, smiling, and dancing. In the playhouse, sweets were consumed and sweaters (and hats, and gloves...) were worn as children enjoyed the sunny, albeit chilly, day. While the celebration's "Fun in the Snow" theme fell on a day in which the playground was powder-free, the décor adorning NCRC, hand-made by students, made everyone feel as if they'd stepped into a sparkly winter wonderland.

An extra special thank you to our Winter Celebration Co-Chairs: Christina DeMartini, Lou Ann Sandstrom, Asha Balakrishnan, Madeleine Burke, and Careina Williams.
