NJHS is excited to get this school year rolling! We have many planned and highly anticipated projects. We are looking forward to the Angelfish Holiday Program, a reverse candy and pencil gram for parents to send to kids, supporting a platoon of soldiers, and a personal needs drive. Committee members are working hard to make sure all projects are a success.
AngelFISH, as you may be wondering, is a program that is run by the Oxford/Orion FISH. This group organizes gift collection for children in need in our community. Our group will be adopting at least 6 children over the holiday. Each NJHS member will donate $5.00 to go toward purchasing gifts for the adopted children. Members are also organizing a Penny War competition in the building to help raise funds to adopt more children as well as to purchase items for care packages for a platoon of soldiers we hope to adopt. Please pay close attention to Dragon Dateline for more information regarding both of these programs.
Members are also working hard to organize a reverse candy and pencil gram for parents to send kids. This event will take place during Parent/Teacher Conferences. Parents will have the opportunity to buy a pencil and sucker for $1.00 that will be delivered to their child during STAR with a special message of encouragement or celebration for a job well done.
As for personal needs drive, this event will take place sometime after the December break. Members are currently working on organizing this personal needs drive.
NJHS members are also working to keep the NJHS bulletin boards up to date. The Public Relations group is currently working on the board that is located in the glass hallway and in front of the cafeteria. Both boards will be regularly updated with important information about NJHS activities, committees, and fundraisers. Members should make sure to view these boards when possible to remain updated.
Despite having terrific plans for the year, we are still accepting ideas and thoughts for activities or fundraisers. If you have an idea, please contact Mrs. Parker or Mrs. Wood, the NJHS Supervisors, or Dominic Batoha the Public Relations Committee Chair. NJHS is looking forward to making this year a success for our community!
