General Information:
Reminder: NCA Graduation Attendance.
In order to help us facilitate more positive community relations, anyone coming to the NCA graduation ceremony that does notlive at Lapilo Center (or its guest facilities) will be required to present an NCA-produced invitation at the main gate upon arrival. (This personalized invitation is notthe same thing as the announcements and picture cards produced by the NCA Senior Class.) This applies to everyonecoming from off-center (Sobega, town, etc.). Families with children at NCA will automatically be receiving personalized invitations for each family member within the next couple of weeks. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Please contact us if you have any questions.

WASC Follow-Up.
Thank you to everyone who played a part in the WASCvisit last week. The team completed their report and made many helpful recommendations to the school. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of their report, our own NCA Self-Study, or the power point presentation from the evening meeting, contact the high school office.

Spiritual Goal. Our spiritual goal for this month is Faithfulness. As we all encounter transitions in these coming days we can be assured of God’s faithfulness and commitment to us and we can also focus on our faithfulness or devotion to Him.  Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. Psalm 36:5
