Help NCS – Benefit App

benefit-mobile-inc
Dear New Covenant School Families, Friends, and Staff,
We hope many of you have taken the time to download and set up the Benefit app on your iPhone or Android.  We have used it several times at Starbucks and Target.  It is very easy to use.  Best of all, the school gets money while it costs you nothing!
Starbucks is having a special 48 hours where it doubles the payment to the school from 9 a.m. this morning to9 a.m. Saturday morning.  Instead of giving the school 6% of the face value of the gift card, it is giving the school 12% of the face value of the gift card.  If just one person buys a $25 gift card from Starbucks today, the school gets $3.  If each of the families at NCS buys a $25 gift card, the school would earn about $250 in a day!
For those of you who have already set up your Benefit app, buy a Starbucks gift card today or tomorrow.  For those of you who have not set up your app yet, do it!  It is easy to set up and easy to use.  You will be ready to use it in a matter of days.  You can find out more about the app by downloading it, visiting www.benefit-mobile.com, or calling me at Mrs. Patty Roth at 617-1699.
Thanks!

One other small detail that we told your children this week is they can now call me Miss Bailey. Mrs. Kaitlyn Rountree will still be Mrs. Rountree. Hopefully this will help you to also know who your children are talking about.

Your children are such a delight to be with; its so encouraging to see how they are all growing and learning so much! Hope you all have a great weekend!!

SCISA Update – Guidance Workshop

015106d40bc1b5e04a68ba606fe162d1798205130c

Membership has its privileges, or at least that’s how the saying goes. New Covenant School took the step to become SCISA members this year and we are already reaping the benefits. As a service to their members, SCISA offers low-cost workshops and continuing education classes. On September 10th, the annual guidance workshop was held and our guidance counselor, Mrs. Angie Harmon, was able to attend. At the workshop, Mrs. Harmon was able to hear several speakers from higher education institutions such as the financial aid director at a local college, the assistant director of the SC Commission on Higher Education (she is in charge of lottery funded state scholarships), the director of SC Tuition Grants, and the head of SC Independent Colleges and Universities (SCICU). They also discussed many issues such as transcripts, AP and dual enrollment courses, virtual education, and bullying. Mrs. Harmon has brought back many great ideas and will be working to share those with the NCS family.
