Tex Hill NJHS Supports Local charities

Tex Hill NJHS students are honored to support one of our local charities, Arms of Hope.

Arms of Hope is a not-for-profit care organization that assists children and single-mother families in need. Arms of Hope's facilities include Medina Children's Home (60 miles northwest of San Antonio) and Boles Children's Home (40 miles northeast of Dallas). The facilities have over 150 years combined experience in comprehensive residential care programs for children. Arms of Hope also reaches disadvantaged children in their own neighborhoods in various communities.

The donation bin is located in the front of our school just past the crosswalk. Please feel free to donate clothes, shoes and household items. This donation box will be a permanent fixture in front of our school to help children and families for years to come.

NJHS Teens for Jeans campaign

NJHS is currently sponsoring a jean drive on campus. If you have any gently used jeans that you would be willing to part with, please throw them in any of the boxes around campus. There should be a box upstairs and downstairs in each hallway. All the jeans will be given to homeless teens in our area. Also, by partnering with Teens for Jeans we are competing with other schools from around the country for a $3,000 grant for our school. Thank you in advance for helping our organization make a difference in teens’ lives.

Community News

Ian's Cup Soccer:

Ian's Foundation was created in the memory of Ian Fincke. Ian tragically passed away at the age of 16, in October of 2008 as the result of fatal wounds sustained during a skateboarding accident. Ian was a previous student at Hardy Oak Elementary, Barbara Bush Middle School and both Reagan and Johnson High Schools. The foundation was formed to advance the safety and welfare of San Antonio youth through education and scholarship awards. To date over $29,000 in scholarships has been awarded. Ian's Foundation also promotes helmet safety in the San Antonio and surrounding area and supports STRAPS (South Texas Regional and Paralympic Sports). STRAPS was inspired by Ian's Foundation as a way to allow anyone in San Antonio with physical disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the game of soccer. You can read more about the foundation at www.IansFoundation.org.

Ian’s Foundation will be offering an annual spring soccer clinic for the San Antonio youth as one of their major fundraisers for the Ian's Cup scholarship fund (formerly known as The Fincke Cup). The clinic will be held on Sunday, February 28th at the Mays YMCA from 2-4PM (with registration from 1:30-2:00). The cost of the clinic is $30 if pre-registered and $35 the day of the clinic. It will include a 2hr clinic as well as a 2016 Ian's Cup t-shirt (while supplies last). The deadline for t-shirt pre-orders and pre-registration for the soccer clinic to ensure a 2016 Ian's Cup t-shirt is Monday, February 15th but pre-registration for the clinic will remain open through Saturday, February 27th at 6PM. Trainers will include local high school coaches, club trainers and high school soccer players from Johnson and Reagan, as they must volunteer at one of the foundation's community service events to be eligible for a scholarship.
