NEW OR GENTLY USED BOOK COLLECTION
OCTOBER 29TH - DECEMBER 15TH
My name is Jenna Kamsickas, a Northville High School Sophomore. I am hosting a book drive to support schools that may not have the means to purchase books for their classrooms. I will be donating the books collected to two kindergarten classrooms, a third-grade classroom, and several other K-5 classrooms at Jefferson Elementary School in Redford, MI. In your child's school, I have placed a box for donations. It would mean so much if you were able to donate new or gently used books, Thanks!
PHOTOS: We need your pictures. We are currently looking for pictures from:
First Day of School
We are accepting these through Oct 19th.
We also need random 5th grade photos taken throughout the year. When submitting photos please be sure to upload the highest quality photo you can. The program we use to create the yearbook does not accept low quality photos.
If you have any questions, please contact:
Erika Eloff - firstname.lastname@example.org

Parents At Lunch (PALS)
Please consider spending some time during lunchtime assisting the lunch staff! New this school year, you can sign up just for your child/children’s lunch period if that works better than signing up for the whole lunchtime.
Here's the link to print out the lunch menus.http://www.northvilleschools.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=350830&type=d&pREC_ID=761214
