Greetings from North Valley Christian Academy!
As our school year comes to a close, we are thankful for the many ways our NVCA community has been blessed. We are especially thankful that God, by His grace, has provided us the wonderful gift of Christian teachers. As we strive to develop our students academically and spiritually, we also strive to support our faculty professionally and spiritually. That is why we are asking you to be a part of the Ultimate Apple Campaign. We will reach out through the coming weeks as we prepare to honor our teachers during National Teacher Appreciation Week beginning May 6.
“The best part of being a teacher at NVCA is being able to lift up the name of Jesus each and every day from inside the campus walls. It is an honor, privilege, and great responsibility to stand before a young generation and declare truth, and it is with great passion that I train my students how to view the world of literature through a biblical lens. I appreciate the professional development training I have received at NVCA and look forward to more opportunities to enhance the classroom learning experience for all of my students.” —Sharon Marusteri, ELA—
Please consider making a gift to the Ultimate Apple Campaign to show your appreciation for your child’s past and present teachers. Your gift will go directly to support educators and the students in their classrooms. Share a special memory or simply honor a teacher with a gift of any amount!
Goal: We are seeking $80,000 from the board and NVCA parents to be matched by a donor dollar for dollar! The funds will be used for teacher training and development. Additionally, each teacher will be given $500 for the coming school year to use on materials as they see fit for their classroom ($250 for part-time teachers).
Share a thank you or appreciation: Enclosed in an envelope recently mailed to NVCA families is a red apple you can use to write a thank you or special appreciation note to our teachers. The apple will be posted on the tree in the school lobby.
Please drop off your envelope and apple note during the weeks of May 6–May 17. Mr. Schoenleb, the “Big Apple,” will be in the parking lot every morning to collect your red envelope with your Ultimate Apple Pledge/Commitment Form and note. Buttons will be provided for your family members to wear that say, “I Love My Teacher.” A generous donor will match every dollar contributed (pledge or outright gift) by May 17 up to $80,000! We thank you all for your generous giving and support.
God’s peace to you,
Head of School
