NCA kindergarten classes welcomed a special guest speaker December 12, RISE International Executive Director Lynn Cole. RISE International is an organization that builds schools in Angola, Africa. The students learned about the similarities and differences between NCA and schools in Angola, saw the similarities between Spanish and Portuguese, the language spoken in Angola, and had three hands-on experiences: carrying a water jug, mashing corn with a large mortar and pestle, and sitting on a stool like one that a student in Angola might have. As part of the sharing season, kindergarten students will be running a coin drive to help send kids in Angola to school. Thank you to NCA parent Rachel Yantis for organizing this special presentation!
