NORTHWESTERN HIGH SCHOOL
Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Wednesday school will be held with Mrs. Michalak in room 120.
There will be no school on Friday, November 28 and Monday, December 1 for Thanksgiving break. Enjoy your holiday!
Northwestern High School is beginning our “Share A Christmas” campaign for this year! We are starting a week early this year so you can do some early “Black Friday” shopping!!
This campaign is run and sponsored by STAR and this is our 16th year of sharing our blessings and gifts with children in our own school district.
We have A LOT of children to buy for this year, so PLEASE share your love, care and concern during this holiday season and pick a card from the tree in the main office. PLEASE make sure that you when you take a card, sign the sheet on the office counter with YOUR name and the NUMBER on the card. You can buy as much as you want, but PLEASE try and buy at least one clothing item and at least one toy for each child.
These gifts NEED to be wrapped and returned to Mrs. Hannah’s room by December 17th, WITH the card attached to it.
Please support “Coats for Kids” sponsored by Salvation Army of Wooster and Howard Hanna Real Estate. They are asking for gently used and/or new coats these may be brought to the front office and put in the red box. Coats must be brought in by Friday, December 5th. Thank you for your support.
