- Grade Point Averages for the 1st Nine Weeks will be calculated after Report Cards are sent home this week.  Remember that if your GPA falls below 3.5 you will be placed on probation for the 2nd Nine Weeks.

- Our next NJHS meeting will be Monday, November 14th at 3:00pm in the auditorium.  Your ride should be here no later than 3:45pm.  Student athletes who have practice that afternoon must come by the auditorium to sign in.  We will be discussing two Service Projects that our whole club will be working on together during the month of December.

- Students who attend the  11/14/16 meeting will have the opportunity to sign up to work in the concession stand at home basketball games for Service Hours.

- You should be working towards your 10 Service Hours for the first semester.  Remember that any type of work you perform for others (and are not paid for) counts as service.  This could include work at community organizations, church activities, school functions, or individual projects.  If you are having difficulty finding service projects to complete, here are some suggestions

        - Volunteer to stay after school and clean desk tops for 2-3 teachers.

        - Mow the yard or weed a flower bed for an elderly neighbor.

        - Offer to babysit for someone that needs to run errands.

        - Ask your pastor/priest if there are any projects that you can help with at your church

        - Make simple holiday decorations for the local nursing home or hospital.

        - Help with a garage sale or car wash that is raising money for he homeless.
