► Adopt-a-Kid


A sincere thank you to all who organized, volunteered, shopped, donated, wrapped and worked at Adopt-a-Kid. Our school worked together to affect the lives of more than 200 children who otherwise would have had a bleak Christmas. In addition, a crew of 46 students composed of members of NHS and DECA worked hours on Friday, Dec. 8, and Saturday, Dec. 9, delivering, checking and wrapping presents. These hours of service really made a difference. Happy holidays, and thank you to all.
