Looking forward to the adventure!
We continue to pray for the flood victims, but next Thursday the NJHS would like to lead our school community on our first act of service. Students may wear RED , WHITE, and BLUE for $3 on Thursday, September 7th as a show of support for the flood victims in Texas and symbolic of America's need to help! All proceeds will be given to Catholic Charities specifically for Texas flood relief.
Please support this great cause!
