As we’ve recently mentioned, Kenny, a Bristol Elementary student, has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. In support of Kenny and his family, the TTCC, Bristol United Church of Christ, Alexandria United Methodist Church, and Kids for Kenny are sponsoring a Spaghetti Supper Fundraiser on Saturday, November 15, at the Bristol United Church of Christ, located at 15 Church Street. Ticket prices are: $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children. Tickets are available at the TTCC and at the door.
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.
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.
