Community Thanksgiving Meals

 

The Florence VFW (18 Meadow St., Florence) is offering a free Thanksgiving meal on Thanksgiving. If you are in need of a meal or friendly conversation, stop by the Florence VFW between 1 and 4pm on Thanksgiving Day. Please spread the word to those that may be able to take advantage of this opportunity.

The Manna Soup Kitchen will once again prepare and serve a fresh-cooked meal complete with all the fixings. Manna’s mission is to serve those in need of a hot meal as well as a sense of community. The Community Dinner will be served at Edwards Church (297 Main St., Northampton)  from noon – 2pm on Thanksgiving Day. All are welcome.

SAT Exam Preparation

Students signed up to take the SAT exams on December 2 are reminded to go online and review the rules for submitting an acceptable photo. An acceptable photo is “a head-and-shoulders view, with the entire face, both eyes, and hair clearly visible; head coverings worn for religious purposes are allowed. You’re in focus. There are no dark spots or shadows.” Any submitted photos that do not meet these standards may result in a student not being allowed to take the SAT on test day.  

Free SAT practice
Would you like to practice for the SAT? Thanks to a donation, the library has access to 40 free accounts to Albert. Visit Mrs. Fabin in the library or email her at karrisafabin@northampton-k12.us if you are interested.

#GivingTuesday

 

Black Friday?
Cyber Monday?
How about #GivingTuesday!

November 28, 2017

The NHS PTO has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

If you haven’t yet responded to the PTO’s Fall Appeal (and even if you have), #GivingTuesday would be a great time to contribute.

In the past year, generous support from families like yours made it possible for the PTO to fund:

  • Kitchenware and garden tools for the Special Education Life Skills Class
  • Chromebooks, desktop computers, graphing calculators, and batteries
  • Books for the library, English Department, History Department, and an Entrepreneur Class
  • Water filling stations
  • Peer mentoring program, curriculum development and training
  • College fair and college readiness programming
  • Supplies and equipment for the NHS Fine and Performing Arts Department
  • Support for the NHS Friends of Northampton Theater booster club

 With your help this year, the PTO will continue to expand and improve the tools available to NHS teachers, inspiring creativity and supporting transformative learning.

Give online at the PTO Razoo page on Tuesday, November 28. Your gift of any size will help continue the revolution in learning at NHS!

“Thank you so much to the PTO for their generous gift of graphing calculators to the Math Department!!! It is a vital resource to our work in the classroom and an expense many students can not afford.”
—Allison Keefe, Math Department

“Even a small amount of money can makes a huge difference to us. Thank you so much for your support!”
—Heather Berlin, ELL

“As a dedicated student at NHS, I am forever grateful for the cameras and equipment donated by the NHS PTO.”
—Phoebe Jessup, student
