  • KINDNHS Challenge- Helping our Heroes! So many men and women in our military are deployed and are not be able to spend the holidays with their family. Show your thanks to them and brighten their holiday by contributing to the Hero Boxes organization. Things such as bars of soap, chapstick, tissues, crossword puzzles and deodorant might be things we take for granted but for a soldier they are a luxury that they don’t have easy access to.

The winning homeroom gets a free breakfast. Students – submit your name in the KINDNHS box in the café for the chance to win our drawing at the end of the month.
