OUTSTANDING JOB TODAY, STUDENTS!!!! I could not be more proud of you! Thank you for making good decisions today, remembering who you were representing, and having a willingness to support those in need.
Remember, those of you who shopped today earned SIX service hours. You DO NOT have to complete any paperwork regarding these hours though. I will update your files accordingly.
What a great day!!!
A meeting was held this afternoon during 7th period Advisory to specifically cover the Toys for Tots shopping trip. If you missed the meeting, you will need to read the letter (linked below) and follow the instructions…..otherwise, you just might miss the opportunity to go shopping with us.
Concerning the DRESS CODE for Monday, December 5th:
Female NJHS members who wear leggings or jeggings to school on Monday, December 5th WILL NOT be permitted to go shopping.
Male NJHS members must wear a belt AND tuck in their Toys for Tots shirt in order to be permitted to go shopping on Monday, December 5th. Shirts must stayed tucked in from from 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM.
All members are required to wear their Toys for Tots shirt on Monday, December 5th in order to go shopping as well.
Finally, to date, FIFTY-ONE members do not have enough hours to go shopping on Monday, December 5th. All members must have three volunteer hours on file by 3:00 PM Thursday, December 1st in order to go shopping. NO LATE HOURS WILL BE ACCEPTED!
NJHS members should have picked up their Toys for Tots shirts today from Mrs. Gingras’ room. If you were absent and did not get yours, feel free to go by B-7 Monday morning.
ALL NJHS MEMBERS SHOULD PLAN ON WEARING THE TOYS FOR TOTS SHIRT MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7th AS WE KICKED OFF OUR TOYS FOR TOTS DRIVE.
An NJHS meeting was held this afternoon to discuss Toys for Tots posters. Additionally, we discussed service hours as I have over eighty students who have ZERO hours on file. If you have service hours, fill out the appropriate paperwork and get it turned in ASAP. All members need to have at least three hours on file by Thursday, December 1st in order to go Toys for Toys shopping.
TFT posters will be due upon arrival to school Monday, October 31st. Posters should be no smaller than half a sheet of standard-sized poster paper. Posters should have all the important information as stated on the informational handout (the WHAT?, WHEN?, HOW?, WHY?). Posters should be visually appealing. I understand that not all students are artists; however, each poster should represent the student’s best effort.
Also, below you will find a letter that you can take out into the community to verify our Toys for Tots drive. Feel free to print it out and show to anyone that may question if you are truly accepting donations for this worthy cause.
There will be an NJHS meeting tomorrow Thursday, October 27th during 7th period Advisory. We will be discussing volunteer hours (some of you have NONE on file with me) as well as the Toys for Tots poster. Below you will see the poster informational handout. I will have a handful of copies on hand tomorrow while supplies last; otherwise, you will need to print out this informational handout and follow its directions.
See you all tomorrow afternoon during 7th period Advisory.
We met in the lunchroom today during Advisory and discussed specifics including the NJHS Letter (below). Letters should be signed and brought back with dues ($45) by Monday, September 26th.
There will be an NJHS meeting Tuesday, September 20th during 7th period Advisory. The meeting will be held in the cafeteria.
If you have completed community service hours, you may record them on the Individual Community Service Hours sheet.
We’re looking forward to another great year with the NJHS. Please, please, please check the blog occasionally and listen to daily announcements for upcoming NJHS meetings and events. Those are the only ways we have of communicating with members. We will not send individual reminders regarding meetings and/or deadlines.
***Our first meeting of the 15 – 16 school year will be the first part of September. I am hopeful we can meet during Advisory.
We’re looking forward to another fun-filled year with the National Junior Honor Society.
Come back later for updates for the 2016-2017 school year.
