  • NHS KIND Challenge: Helping out with Hygiene. Now through February 14th, bring any hygiene item and place it in a box located in the café, Mrs. Harding’s room, Mrs. Dennis’ room or Mrs. Fanelli’s room. For EACH item you bring in, you will fill out your name and submit it in the challenge box in the cafeteria for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate. So, show your love and bring in as many items as you wish.
  • Good Morning ! Today is part of National School Counseling Week. Today’s message is about lessons shared. A wise woman once said “Sharing is a wonderful thing, especially to those you’ve shared with” When we have gained lessons through experiences and situations, many times we hold them close to us. Don’t get me wrong; sometimes these lessons are private and should remain confidential. However there are times when a lesson you learned, if shared, can help a fellow student. Here are some examples; when you learn about a more effective way to take notes to prepare for an upcoming exam- share it. When you discover a better way to tackle time management challenges – share it. When you find ways to be better friend- share it. Our School counselors take pride in sharing their life lessons with the students of NHS. If you ever want to chat, stop by!
