NJHS MEMBER ANNOUNCEMENT
Hello members! Let's visit a second college campus in January and cheer the Mean Green on in the Super Pit! Mrs. Keneda has worked with UNT so we can have a tour at 2:45, eat dinner near campus, and attend a Men's Basketball Game on January 28, 2023. Please use this link to purchase tickets: https://fevo.me/hebnjhs Tickets are mid court reserved so we will be close to the action! Please see the included field trip form for details and more information. As always, email Mrs. Keneda with any questions! firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, Remind is having issues so an email was sent to all NJHS families and members on November 10. If you and your student did not receive it, please let Mrs. Keneda know.
NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH
Today’s quote comes from Sioux Chief Sitting Bull, he says, “Warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, because no one has the right to take another life. The warrior, for us, is one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who can not provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity.” Today, find a way to help out a classmate, friend, teacher or family member and make it a great day!
We would also like to shout out 16 students who went the extra mile and earned the title of "Scale Buster"! These students had to perform all 8 of their Honor Band scales by memory plus their chromatic in one sitting with zero mistakes. Their reward? A Cheesecake Factory dinner with their band directors and fellow scale busters!
