HS Final Exams this week Monday, June 19 - Thursday, June 22

Thank You

Thank you everyone who volunteered and supported the HS Council in any way this year. I really appreciate your support. Have a great summer. See you in September. School opens on September 6.

Donations for Tanzania

This summer, a group of students are going on the annual trip to JBFC, an orphanage for girls in Tanzania. The Colvin family has had a charity called PASS (Pass to Africa Soccer Supply) for a few years now. We have sent soccer supplies to Sierra Leone twice, and to Haiti as well. This year, Harry Colvin is looking to collect supplies to bring to the girls in Tanzania. As a group, we are hoping to collect any clothing that you see fit. This collection is not limited to soccer supplies, all clothing will be greatly appreciated. The girls range from all school ages, about 4 to 18, and any clothing would help. Boxes for collections will be placed at the atrium entrance and the canopy entrance.

These individuals have generously donated their time and energy to ensuring that the candidates for school board trustee are recruited, properly vetted and nominated each year. Their service to the NPC is very much appreciated. 

The NPC will resume activity in September when the committee will reconvene to begin soliciting applications for school trustee candidates to run in the school district election in May 2018.
