On the evening of November 29th, 2016, the New Covenant Cavaliers hosted the Fountain Inn Falcons to officially begin their first season as a member of the South Carolina Association of Christian Schools (SCACS). In three games, New Covenant came out victorious in all of them; JV Boys, Varsity Girls, and Varsity Boys. The scores to the varsity games were 41-10 (girls) and 63-40 (boys).
New Covenant will be back at home on December 1st with JV girls, JV boys, Varsity girls and Varsity boys games! The first game starts at 4:00. New Covenant’s home gym is located at Trinity Baptist Church at 324 Belton Dr, Williamston. Below are some pictures from the home opener! Go CAVALIERS!
New Covenant School has blessed me in so many ways, but I think one of the biggest blessings is community. From kindergarten all the way to my senior year, I’ve grown up learning with the people I love most. There have been many changes while I have attended, but all along New Covenant School has held onto its original purpose. A big part of that is bringing students and their families into a really wonderful community that desires to present each one of its students complete in Christ.
I think I took much of my education for granted for a long time. I didn’t quite understand the richness of what I was being taught. My mom is a teacher, so as a teacher’s kid I spent a lot of time at NCS. My sister and I used to laugh and say New Covenant is our real home, because we spend more time at the school than we do at our own house! But in all honesty, New Covenant IS my home, and the people there are my family. They’ve educated me, disciplined me, shared the love and mercy of Christ with me, and poured their lives into me because they love the Lord and His children. To be in the presence of God’s people every single day, and be educated with curriculum that is woven with God’s Word, is a priceless gift.
Next year I plan to study elementary education at Anderson, Clemson, Auburn, or Winthrop University. Becoming an elementary school teacher has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, and I’m hoping to use teaching in the mission field as well. I’ve always loved learning, and I look forward to ministering to elementary students in the same way my teachers took care to minister to me. I can’t imagine any place that would prepare me better for college and after, and I am extremely grateful that I have had the opportunity to learn at NCS.
New Covenant School is sad to announce that one of our aides, Mrs. Hannah Bryant, will be leaving us after December. She is moving on in her career to work full time at Bryant Pharmacy. Please be sure to let Mrs. Bryant know how much she is loved and will be missed.
At the same time, we are happy to announce that Emily Leach has been hired to fill our aide position beginning in January. She is originally from Kentucky and moved to the Anderson area in July of 2015 and joined New Covenant Church shortly after. This past September she was asked to help coach New Covenant’s cross country team and she is currently the JV Girls’ basketball coach. Now, by God’s grace she has been given the opportunity to be a teacher’s aide at New Covenant School! She looks forward to working with the children and helping them to succeed and grow in Christ.
Please join us in welcoming Miss Emily Leach to the NCS family!
