- Delivery is scheduled for Friday afternoon (12/6) or Monday (12/7).  If you placed orders, please make arrangements to have them picked up. We will not be sending orders home with the students, due to the possibility of breakage. Our afternoon custodian will keep the front door open until 6:30 p.m. for those of you who are unable to pick up the orders during regular school hours.  If you have any questions, please give us a call.

Holiday Cards for Military

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 have been organizing and sending out holiday cards and could use your assistance.

Winter Activities

Parents and guardians who have sent in their children’s pre-registration forms for skating, skiing and snowboarding should have received a packet of papers for completion.  As stated on the cover sheet, in order for your children to participate, paperwork and money must be received no later than Friday, December 6.

If your child is in need of ice skates, we have several used pairs that have been donated by our NHCS families.  There are both figure and hockey skates in various sizes.  Just give us a call for further details (744-3221).

Volunteer Opportunity

Mrs. Marcotte, our ICT teacher, is looking for volunteers to help out in the library.  If you have any time, even a half hour here and there, she could use help in reshelving books.  If interested, please give her a call.  She’ll set up a time when it’s convenient for you to come in and see what needs to be done.


Share Your Photos for the 2013-2014 Yearbook:  Students are gearing up for class parties, field trips and other fun activities. We need your help to capture those moments for this year’s NHCS yearbook. You can upload your photos at any time to http://nhcs.picaboo.com.  If you come by the school and plan on taking pictures of a school event, pick up one of the business cards that Nora Foster, our yearbook coordinator, recently had printed.  The cards contain photo upload information. Make sure your camera and camera phone settings are set to the highest resolution for best print quality.  Nora is looking for volunteers to coordinate photos, yearbook ad sales and yearbook layouts. Contact her directly at norafoster1@gmail.com.
