Tuesday, September 26th-School Spirit Day

To celebrate our 1st home sporting event, we will have a school spirit day. Students can wear their NHCS gear, school colors, or whatever else sounds school spirit-y. The Pee Wee basketball team and cheerleaders open up their season at home that evening at 6 pm. Come out and support the Crusaders.

Sweet Treats-What is this?

I've been asked, "What are sweet treats?" Great question.

This is something that our 8th grade class sells on Fridays during lunch. The cost is $1. 8th grade students/parents are responsible for bringing in treats. ALL the funds raised goes towards their 8th grade class trip and an 8th grade class legacy project. Past legacy projects are the gaga pits and a donation to purchase swings. Last year's class, is making a donation to whatever this year's class decides on.

This is an optional thing.
