NJHS and Eden's Army Blood Drive

Every 2 seconds someone in the United States needs blood.  By donating blood this Thursday, you can help.  One donation has the potential to save as many as three lives!  Your blood donation helps our local hospitals which are currently experiencing a shortage.  Need another reason to donate?  Donating blood burns 650 calories!  So, skip the gym this Thursday 3-6:30 and donate blood at  Whiteside Middle School.  This event is sponsored by National Junior Honor Society and Eden's Army.

7th Grade Night

All 7th grades are invited to attend our 2nd annual 7th Grade Night on Friday, September 22 from 5:30-8pm at Whiteside Middle School.

This event will be an opportunity for all 7th graders to work with their peers and fellow students through fun, non-competitive activities.  The emphasis will be on positive communication, discovering common experiences, and sharing and listening to one another.  The more students share in common, the more apt they are to encourage each other and build up their peers!

We will begin this action packed and fun filled evening at 5:30pm with pizza and we hope that all 7th graders are able to join us for this 2nd annual event.
