From the Clinic

If you are looking to for a way to help out the NBE clinic, please consider donating these items:


* New packages of plain cellulose sponges (without scouring pads/scratch pads on one side). I cut up sponges, wet them, and using fresh baggies daily, keep the clinic stocked with “ice packs!”


* I have had a bit more trouble this year finding cellulose sponges in bulk, so I am placing this request in our newsletter. Our NBE parents have always been so helpful and kind!


* I am also in need of BOYS UNDERWEAR! If you wish to donate new or used, clean, unstained underwear, please feel fr

It's "Socktober"!

Hi, I'm one of the Student Council members here at New Britton. I'm want to talk about our wonderful service project that we are doing for the month of October. It's called "Socktober". We are collecting brand new socks for the homeless. Did you know there were 16,000 people homeless in Hamilton County last December. We would like to make sure that each homeless person has a warm pair of socks for the upcoming season. Please turn your donated socks into the black bins in the school hallways. Thank you!
