O. Henry Coats for Kids Drive: Monday, November 11th - Friday, November 22nd
From Monday, November 11th to Friday, November 22nd we are asking that students bring in gently used or new coats to their ACES teachers that will be donated to children in need. Friday, the 22nd during ACES will be the last day students can turn them in.
ACES classes will be competing to see which class can collect the most coats. There will be one winning class per grade level. The ACES class, per grade, that collects the most coats will win a party sponsored by NJHS.
Thank you in advance if you are able to donate and to help your child understand the importance and meaning of this community project! O. Henry has collected the most coats of any middle school in Austin FOUR years in a row; let's do it again!
Get your things from Lost and Found!!!
Our Lost and Found is overflowing with unclaimed items. NJHS students will be cleaning it out the Thursday before Thanksgiving break and donating the coats to the Coats for Kids Collection Drive. Students have until Wednesday, November 20th to get items from the Lost and Found. We will be reminding kids as well during the lunches.
LOST AND FOUND ELECTRONICS?
If we find a phone or other electronic devices or accessories, we locke these in our school vault. Students make retrieve them after school at 3:40.
O. Henry is very lucky to have dedicated and supportive teaching assistants to work alongside our teaching staff to support our students. Please help in honoring: Sandra Cathey, Gabby Dorsett, Amanda Hart, Mary Hopkins, Bertha Reed, Mari Sanchez, and Mark Webber.
A kind note goes a long way, so thank you for taking the time to let our staff know you appreciate their commitment and dedication.
