This Week at NHS (January 28 – February 1)


THE GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE:

The Great Kindness Challenge is one week dedicated to creating a culture of kindness and compassion on school campuses worldwide. Our school is proudly participating in this proactive and positive kindness initiative from January 28 – February 1.  All students will receive The Great Kindness Challenge checklist. Please encourage your child to complete as many acts of kindness as possible. We are also happy to invite YOU to participate using the new Family Edition checklist. Your family can complete the checklist anytime and anywhere. Together, let’s show the world that KINDNESS MATTERS!
