Thanksgiving Feast - HELP NEEDED!

We are in need of volunteers to cook turkeys for the children's Thanksgiving Feast on the 22nd.  If you are interested in helping out, email SusanC2@niskids.org to sign up and a turkey will be provided to you to cook in your home and bring to school the morning of the feast. Thanks in advance!
NIS GIVING TREE


Please help us ensure that no student in our school goes without a holiday gift this year by selecting an ornament from our Giving Tree with a gift wish from one our families in need.  The tree will be on display in our lobby at the Craft Fair on November 11th until mid-December.  If you have a current student at NIS you feel may benefit from this program due to financial difficulties, please contact Samantha Boutis at ext. 503.  Thank You!


#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.  Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.  Join the #unselfie movement.  Donate to NIS and then post a picture of yourself on social media holding a sign telling people why you gave to NIS.  It's a fun way to give back.
