Kindergarten-Miss Anita: Our kindergarten is an exciting beginning for your child’s educational experience. We offer a 1/2 day program with a full curriculum that includes Bible every day. Miss Anita has been our kindergarten teacher for 23 years. She is commited to the words of Jesus in Matthew 19:14 “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
1st Grade-Mrs. Flexter: This is my 13th year in First Grade at New Horizon. They have a lot of fun while learning. Our song is This is the Day the Lord Has Made. Everyone will get a necklace for their lost teeth and their name will go on our chart for the year. We read Junie B. Jones every day. We also enjoy Pete the Cat, Clifford, Mercer Mayer Little Critter books, If you Give a Mouse a Cookie, and many others. First Graders are sweet and a lot of fun. I probably learn as much from the 1st graders as they learn from me . I belong to Boyd Christian Church. I have three grown children and four grandchildren. My favorite color is blue.
3rd Grade-Mrs Cox: I am married To Jeff Cox and have one daughter, Alexis, who is in the 6th grade here at New Horizon. I taught my first 2 years here in fifth grade, I am now teaching my 2nd year in third grade. I attend Central Christian Church in Mt Vernon and I love the color green and the Grinch. Third grade is always busy learning and having fun. We learn to write in cursive, memorize the books of the Bible and the 10 commandments, and how to multiply and divide. Our Bible verse is Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
7th Grade-Mrs. Sherman (homeroom): Hello I am the Jr. High History, and Science teacher. I have been blessed to work at NHCS for 4 years. I am also the Athletic Director and the Scholar Bowl Coach. I love music, sports and have a variety of knowledge about TV trivia. I am married to Brian Sherman and we have a daughter named Leah. We have two dogs named Comanche and Duke. I am by the way a huge fan of John Wayne. One of my favorite Bible verses is Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. This reminds me of the song “If God is for us, who can be against us.” So we can do anything as long as we count on Him and do it through and for His glory.
