3rd – 12th Grade Homeroom Teachers: First Holy Communion
If you have students that would like to join this school year’s "First Holy Communicants”, please submit their names and baptismal certificates to the business office as soon as possible.
Canned Food Drive
As in years past, we are also encouraging students to practice the virtue of almsgiving by bringing non-perishable food items, traditionally referred to as canned food, for offering during the Thanksgiving Mass. Each homeroom will bring up their collected items during the Presentation of the Gifts and we hope and trust that all students will help give to those in need. In particular, this year’s canned food drive will go towards Karidat and the Annual Operation CNMI Homefront Support.
Operation CNMI Homefront Support
As we prepare to gives thanks, let us also come together and give thanks to our men and women in the armed services. Given all that they sacrifice and are willing to sacrifice, the least we can do is show them how much we appreciate their service. In particular, the school’s honor societies are working with organizers of the Annual Operation CNMI Homefront Support to collect the names and addresses of CNMI military personnel. If you have names and addresses of such personnel, please send their names, branch of service, and full mailing address to email@example.com.
Need tutoring? NHS is offering tutoring for students in 7th—12th grades FREE OF CHARGE every Thursday during Academic Advising Period in the Resource Room (Ms. Toby’s room, A-102).
