***If you do not have your 5 projects yet, send me a picture of you doing something for your community during this time while maintaining social distancing. Some of you guys may be doing yard work for neighbors, shopping for elderly family/friends, helping with virtual school for other younger students, etc. I would love to hear about what you are doing during this time. I have been using my time in lockdown to sew masks and have already made 500 to date! Make sure to include your name in the message, so I can mark you off even if you already have 5 projects. If you need to know how many projects you have, message me to see if you need more. Show our community that we are Bulls, we stand together in adversity, and NHS students truly care for others and have a heart for service!
May project or make-up project. Teacher appreciation week is May 4-May 8th. Teachers are missing their students and this would be a great opportunity for you to reach out to your teachers to let them know you miss them too or they are appreciated. Feel free to have fun with this! Send them a letter, picture, virtual card, short video, etc. Email it to them and CC or BCC me in the email and I will mark you down.
***Important for Seniors***
Seniors who have completed their required projects for the year will be able to purchase graduation stoles for $12. ALL payments must be made through the k-12 payment system under the fee code of NHS graduation stoles. I would save a digital copy of your receipt or take a picture of it in case the database has not been updated as proof of purchase. Due to school being out, we cannot accept cash or check. Stole pick up for all clubs will be held at HRHS on May 26th and 27th from 10-12 each day. You may also turn in any unneeded textbooks and materials at this time. I look forward to seeing you there.
