NHS Mission Statement

"Preparing Students for Life's Next Step!"

On Saturday, November 22nd the NHS National Honor Society students sponsored a service project benefiting Kids’ Food Basket. The “Stuff the Bus” event was held at the D&W Fresh Market at Knapp’s Corner.  A Northview bus, decorated with posters and a banner, was parked in front of the store from 9:00am-4:00pm.  The weather was cool, but the students’ spirits were enthusiastic as they greeted shoppers with wish lists for the Kids’ Food Basket.  After a full day, the event brought in more than 1300 pounds of food approximately equaling $3000 and almost $400 in cash donations.  KFB was truly grateful to our students for their energy, drive, creativity and support.  They really made an impact on KFB mission to nourish children in our community so that they can learn and live well.  CONGRATULATIONS STUDENTS!!!

Poster Winners!

Students in Mr. Tull & Mrs. Eriskson's Photoshop classes were awarded $100 each for designing posters for Silent Observer's Fast $50 program.  The 5 students were tops among 150 entries.
