Did you know that Steve Jobs, the APPLE inventor, DID NOT let his kids use IPads and that he limited their use of technology?

The Moorhead NJHS hosts a Thanksgiving Food Drive

Hello parents, my name is Wendy Kardorff, and I am the site coordinator for Communities in Schools at Moorhead Junior High. Thanksgiving is almost upon us, and it is a time of sharing and a time to be thankful. With that being said, Communities in Schools along with the National Junior Honor Society will be collecting holiday food items for families to be able to cook a Thanksgiving Day meal. I am attaching a flyer with the items we will be collecting. The dates of collection and where the food is to be dropped off will be found on the flyer. We will be sending the food home for families on November 16th and 17th. There will be an incentive for the students. The homeroom class with the most food donated will receive a Kolache and donut party. If you are a family that is in a position to donate to help other families, I strongly encourage you to donate. If you are a family in need of food items to prepare a meal for your family on Thanksgiving Day, please feel free to contact me by phone or email. Email will probably be the best method of contact. My number is 936-709-2449, and my email is

Safety First

After school car riders must be picked up along the school driveway/sidewalk. We don't want anyone to get hit by a car. Think of all the young high school drivers who may be driving while distracted! We ask that you not pick up your child along the road or that you ask your child to cross the street.

Thank you for your help with this request.
