You will need to dress nice (but no heels for the girls). So come out that Monday to the cafeteria and help out! Let Ms. Blattman know if you can help!
Alright, we have many activities this February that you can all be a part of. Make sure to at least sign up for one thing this month and remind your friends to check the blog and come to the activities. For any questions, feel free to ask Ms. Blattman or any of the officers.
1. On Wednesday, February 13 we will have our usual meeting. We will be doing a Valentines Day activity in Ms. Blattman's room right after school. Be sure to come, especially because we will take a group picture for the yearbook. Spread the word so that all members can be in the picture.
2. Also on Wednesday, February 13 will be Sophmore orientation. If you want to help hand out packets for next years sophmores then sign up in Ms. Blattmans room for a time. It will go on from 4:30 to 7:30 pm but you only have to be there for an hour.

Sophmores are now eligible to join NHS! If you are interested or know a sophmore who is, pick up an application form from Ms. Blattman's room, pay the $15 fee in the main office, and bring your receipt and your signed form to Ms. Blattman. Don't forget to look at the qualifications to see if you qualify to be in the club.
Wednesday January 16, 2013 will be our meeting for all members of NHS. Please get the word out and thank you for serving!
We're sure you're all aware that December is a busy time for the entire school as we find ourselves involved in various activities surrounding Hearts of Gold. We encourage you to participate in any way you can. It's for a good cause!
Along with that thought, there will not be a regular second Wednesday meeting this month. Instead, we are going to get NHS involved with Hearts of Gold. Service hours for December will come from participating in our night for Odd Jobs. That night is Friday, December 14. We will have a roll available to sign that night for those of you in attendance so that you can receive credit for your service hours.
If you cannot come that night, fear not. There is another option to get service hours logged with NHS this month. The Hearts of Gold community carnival is on Wednesday, December 12. You may sign up in Ms. Blattman's room to help at the carnival. NHS will not have a booth, but students who sign-up will help the Student Body Officers and Class officers with anything they made need help with during the carnival. Students who sign-up need to meet the SBO's in the commons at 5 p.m. that night.
Remember that service is one of the pillars of National Honor Society and recognize there are many opportunities to serve this month. Please do not limit yourselves to those service activities that we are doing in our organization. Get out and make an effort to make this holiday a happy one for someone else. We appreciate you and look forward to serving with you soon.
Thanks to everyone who came to the meeting today! The boxes turned out amazing and we hope lots of people donate things. Don't forget about volunteering at the Festival of Trees and spread the word so we can get as much people as possible helping.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, November 14 after school in Ms. Blattman's room. We will be decorating boxes for our collection and a representative from the Festival of Trees will be coming in to talk about volunteering at the event.
For the Warmth of the Children Throughout the month of November, we will be collecting new hats, gloves, and socks. Spread the word about this great charity and do not forget that if you donate two items, it counts as an hour of service.
Festival of Trees On November 28, we will be volunteering at the Festival of Trees. If you would like to come sign up in Ms. Blattman's room. We need to be at the South Towne Expo Center at 4 pm and be there until 7. Also, parent volunteers are greatly appreciated.
