Blanket Drive For The Homeless
Do you have any old blankets laying around the house?
Please consider donating them to the less fortunate! Mr. Allyn will be collecting blankets for homeless veterans from now until December 15th. During this time, Mr. Allyn will not shave his beard. The homeroom that brings in the most blankets will get to decide how Mr. Allyn styles his beard for a whole week!
St. Baldrick's Fundraiser
It’s almost that time of year again Bulldogs to start growing out that hair and thinking about raising money for a great cause! Our 5th annual St. Baldrick’s fundraiser will be kicking off this month in an effort to top our total of $15,000 from last year and try to raise over $25,000!!
St. Baldrick’s is an organization dedicated to beating childhood cancer one haircut at a time, and in the last few years, it has only been our teachers hair that was cut. This year though, it’s different. We will be looking for anyone who is brave enough or willing to raise money for this great cause and get their head shaved! Want to help out but don’t want to shave your whole head? If your hair is longer than 8 inches, you can still participate and cut off those 8 inches for Locks for Love!!
If you are interested see Mr. Bolchalk in room 2316 or one of the NJHS representatives for more details. This is to be the biggest fundraiser our school has ever attempted and everyone’s help is appreciated. Stay tuned for more details!!
