The NHCA math students competed in an ACSI Math Olympiad competition on Friday Feb. 26. Students were given standardized math tests at the district level. Those that scored high enough on the preliminary district level test got to participate in the ACSI regional level math contest. We had 11 students qualify at the district level and advanced on to the regional level. At the regional level, the students competed against 14 different Christian schools (200 students) throughout Kansas and Missouri.
The students receive ribbons for the number of correct answers.

1000 Club – Christians Supporting Christians
This is a new program that we are starting to see if we can get Christian community support for our families choosing to educate their children in a Christian school. We are looking for those that will link arms with our school by providing $10 a month or $120 per year. If we can find 1000 people in our community (Kearney, Liberty, Lawson, Lathrop…) to join us by supporting our local community Christian school – it would make a huge difference for these families and our school. We have brochures available that shares about this new program and gives some key information. We also have this available on our web site www.nhcapatriots.com .

Our prays and thoughts continue to be poured out to this wonderful family.
