NJHS Tab Time

NJHS would like to thank the parents and teachers who participated in our annual Ronald McDonald House tab collection. Students gathered thousands of tabs to donate to RMDH who in turn recycles the tabs and uses the money to purchase supplies for the house. It’s great to see kids giving back to the community!

CAFETERIA CLEANLINESS COMPETITION

Last week we completed the most recent “Cafeteria Cleanliness” competition. Results are in and “A” lunch came in 1st place with a whopping 89 points! This is the highest point total any lunch has received this year. “C” lunch came in 2nd place with 80 points followed by “B” lunch with 77 points. Since both “A” and “C” lunch exceeded 80 points, students in those lunches will be allowed to use their electronic devices during lunch for the week. “B” lunch will be normal with no electronic devices allowed. Overall, all of the lunches did a much better job keeping the cafeteria clean. Thank you!

CAFETERIA HELPERS OF THE WEEK

Janice Kankolongo for A lunch

Nathaniel McWhirt for B lunch
