This past Saturday night, the SCA visited the NCS dorm students downtown. The Upper School group brought pizza and the students played "Minute to Win It" games and everyone had a super time. A big THANK YOU to Ms. Williams and Coach Alexander, Mr. Brandon and Dr. Owen for joining in the fun!
The Senior Class awaited patiently on Thursday while ECP-2 students made the long trek from Ellis Hall to Willis Field to meet their senior buddy for the first time. Slowly but surely, students were matched with each other, and some lucky ECP'ers got more than one student to be their buddies. This tradition is one of the best loved ones in the North Cross experience. During the year, the seniors will meet with their buddies for special events, like the Halloween Parade and the Egg hunt, but perhaps the most special day is when an ECP-2 student presents a fat pencil (like the ones we teach penmanship with) to his or her senior buddy who has been at the school for twelve years or more. The ceremony, which happens just before Commencement, is cherished by both sides of these relationships which grow closer (and sweeter) as the year goes on. Visit our YouTube channel to watch a special video scrapbook of their initial meeting.
