One other special note for our crosstown games. Our WNHS National Honor Society kids are leading a service project around the "Thirst Project", see the link below. The mission of the Thirst Project is to help young people understand how important it is for all communities in the world to have clean water. NHS students will be asking for donations to help with clean water in other places in the world. If you can help them with their goals, please do!
