Today was the 2nd NJHS meeting. Members who did not make it to the meeting must see Ms. Grimes to sign up for community service opportunities and to sign the roster acknowledging that members will not be given individual reminders regarding upcoming event and deadlines. Members MUST listen to announcements, check the blog, and follow directions. Students who miss deadlines and/or do not follow instructions, will not be allowed to go Toys for Tots shopping.
Additionally, students received information about Toys for Tots posters. All members should print the poster form linked above, or see Ms. Grimes for a form. The posters along with the form are due to an advisor on Thursday, Oct. 27th. Only members who make a poster and turn it in by the deadline will be allowed to go shopping in December. Members must also complete a sponsor approved service project before December in order to go shopping. Examples of sponsor approved projects include: Boo at the Zoo, Hogwarts at the Zoo (or any other current volunteer opportunity at the Birmingham Zoo), Sozo Jewelry Sale, Sozo Blanket project, or the OMES Fall Fun Fest. If your child is participating this fall in some other organized charity event, and you would like for this event to count towards shopping hours, please e-mail Ms. Grimes at email@example.com for approval.
Service hours must be recorded and turned in promptly after a project is completed. Here is the Individual Community Service Hours sheet.
We covered a lot of information today regarding service opportunities and NJHS expectations. Members who did not attend the meeting must see Ms. Grimes.
