Boys Mentoring Group

Our Boys Mentoring Group has been spending their morning time greeting our students and families as they arrive to school.  They offer encouraging and inspiring messages to our students first thing in the morning.  It is a great way to start our day!  This group works hard to promote a climate of acceptance and inclusion in our school.

Red Ribbon Week

We celebrated Red Ribbon Week all last week.  Thanks to our NJHS students for organizing this week and educating all of us about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.  On Thursday, October 26th, students pledged to be drug free.  Our pledge poster is hanging proudly in the lobby.  The next time you are in the building, be sure to look for your child's signature on the poster!
