Community Service Hours

Good afternoon, NHS members and inductees. 

Your opportunities for service hours are dwindling as we approach the end of the year.  Seniors, this especially affects you...

If you are in need of hours, here are a couple of options:
1) Tutoring in 3219 Saturday, 5/10 from 8:00-10:00 a.m.
2) Donate the following smore ingredients:  fun size Hershey's chocolate bars, jumbo marshmallows, graham crackers, snack baggies, or card stock.  (Please email me to confirm what you plan to bring, because we need a balanced amount to achieve our smore effect.)
3) Goody bag creation during lunch Friday, 5/9.
We are making goodie bags for the teachers to thank them for all they do.  The more donations and the more members/inductees, the better. 

See you Friday.
