NHS and the Music Program will be selling Valentine Grams February 6th and 7th in the North Commons during Parent/Teacher conferences, and also in both the North and South Commons before and after school Feb 8-13. For $5 each, you may choose a rose, a mini teddy bear, or a bag of chocolate kisses; or for $10, a singing gram performed by our very own Men’s or Women’s Ensemble. When you place your order, in addition to choosing a gift, please be prepared with a homeroom teacher or room number (for elementary) or with a preferred period (1-4) and teacher or room number (for secondary). The hope is that all gifts will be delivered the first two periods of the morning, and the singing grams will be delivered to secondary students in the morning, and elementary students in the afternoon.
