Yankee Candle brochures and order forms were sent home with the students this week. This is an annual school fundraiser that helps pay for field trips and assemblies. Order forms and money are due back by Wednesday, November 5. Checks should be made payable to NHCS, and delivery of items will be 2-4 weeks from Yankee Candle’s receipt of orders.
Change of Date for Picture Re-Takes: The photographers from LifeTouch will be here on Tuesday, November 4, for retakes. If your child was absent on the day pictures were taken, you may send in the photo envelope, along with the money, on November 4. (Extra envelopes are available in the office.) If you would like to have your child’s picture retaken, the package of photos that was previously sent home must be returned in its entirety. Please keep the class picture.
New Hampton Community School would like to honor our veterans at a school-wide assembly on Friday, November 7, at 10:15. Please help us find our local heroes, as we would like to invite them to our celebration. If you know of a veteran, please contact us at the school. All are welcome to attend this special assembly. On this date, we invite all students, if possible, to wear clothing that is red, white, and/or blue in order to help show support for our veterans.
Along with today’s Newsletter, you will find Mrs. Frost’s “News in Physical Education”. As you’ll be able to see by the pictures, we had a very successful Fun Run.
Community Service Project
We are collecting addresses for all active service members. If you have friends or family members who are presently serving in the armed forces or stationed at a military base, please send their names and addresses to us. We will be organizing and sending out holiday cards and could use your assistance. Please call the office (744-3221) with this information.
We are continuing to collect BoxTops for Education. If you have any BoxTops (often found on packages of food items), please send them in with your children. The money received from BoxTops for Education helps to fund student activities, assemblies, and field trips. These BoxTops are collected throughout the year.
Hannahford Helps Schools
Hannaford Helps Schools is a program that provides NHCS an opportunity to raise funds for our student activity account. The program began on August 30 and will run through December 6. When certain items (listed on the flyers that were recently sent home) are purchased from Bristol Shop & Save, you will receive “school dollars” that may be deposited in the box marked “New Hampton Community School” which you’ll find toward the front of the store. If you shop at any of the other Hannaford stores in the area and receive “school dollars”, please send them in with your child and we will bring them over to the Bristol store in order for our school to receive credit.
