Paperwork and payment for those students who will be participating in skiing, snowboarding, and skating were due back to us today (November 25).
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.
This is just a reminder to those who would like to volunteer, but have not yet been through the process of being fingerprinted and having a background check. There is a Volunteer Form and Confidentiality Agreement that need to be completed. These may be found in the NHCS office, or give us a call and we will send one home with your child. As soon as you have completed these two forms, they will be sent over to Sue Cross at the SAU office in Bristol, and she will give you a call to schedule a time for you to go through the process. If you have any questions, please give us a call (744-3221).
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.
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.
