Athletics and Activities Corner
On Saturday, six of our National Junior Honor Society members joined their advisors - Ms. Fanega and Ms. Montgomery - to convert the “Coins for Care” fundraiser money for cash to purchase items to add to the “Lending a Hand to Afghanistan” collection drive. In the end, 8 trash bags full of clothes, 5 small boxes of toiletries, 5 large boxes of blankets, supplies, and games, and an additional bag of toys, a stroller, and a car seat will be delivered to Fort Dix, NJ. All of this was thanks to our caring community and the generosity of our K-8 school. With over $1,300 raised, students truly learned about the value of counting coins, shopping for supplies, and lending a helping hand. Congratulations to our top 3 homerooms: 2B, 4B, and 8D!

Clubs and Activities registration for Spring 2022 is now open! For a full list of all our activities please visit, https://www.newfoundations.org/activities
