CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR JUNIOR HIGH ART DEPARTMENT:
Several of our junior high art students participated in a problem gambling calendar contest sponsored by the Josephine County Prevention Coordinator’s office. Eighty middle school students from Josephine County participated. New Hope had two students place in the top five in the county! Congratulations to 8th grader Daryn K. who placed 2nd and 7th grader Rebecca M. who placed 4th! Each won a $25 VISA gift card! Our art department was also awarded a $100 gift card which we will use to purchase new artist paintbrushes.
Other NH students who participated in the contest were Tianna B., Heather H., Breana D., Sydney L., Mikaeli D., Ben K., Amanda T., Daniel M., Ben S., Jimmy C., Sahian D., and Mackenzie M. Each of these students received a Papa Murphy’s pizza card.
Great job, Students!!!
All lunch accounts must be kept current with available monies in order for students to continue purchasing lunches.
AFTER SCHOOL SUPERVISION:
No students or siblings may be on campus after 3:30pm unless it is for a school sponsored activity. Only students involved in a school sponsored activity, such as athletes at after school practice, are covered by our liability insurance. All non-athletes should be picked up after school or be under parent supervision if here at school. (The exception to this policy is carpoolers living out of the area or those who simply cannot make more than one trip to the school. We will let those students study in the cafeteria until the practice is over.) After an activity or practice, student(s) must wait in the cafeteria. Thank you for your cooperation.
BOX TOPS AND CAMPBELL LABELS:
The last contest for this year ends TOMORROW. Send in any Box Tops and labels you have at home. Don’t forget to mark them with your student’s name and grade for their class to get the credit. (FYI – Printable coupons for items with box tops can be found at www.boxtops4education.com/coupons.)
