#NHSSD Weekly eNews
This week has offered valuable lessons in citizenship within our schools and our community. Our Littlest Lions created self-portraits illustrating respect, responsibility, and safety in their school. MS students shared in their teachers' experiences witnessing 9/11, marking the 20th anniversary. Our District collaborated with community organizations to initiate additional storm response efforts.
Our Littlest Lions created self-portraits to reflect on what it means to be a good citizen of their school community.
MS students listened to and discussed the accounts of their teachers, who recalled what they experienced on September 11, 2001.
NHS Community Coalition
Collaboration to Support Local Storm Response Efforts
The NHSSD and NHS Cares first launched the Community Coalition in 2019 to provide an opportunity for community organizations to gather and share resources and strategies. The Coalition met this week on September 8 to brainstorm and discuss additional response efforts, which are most needed by our neighbors in Lambertville.
Both organizations have established temporary facilities. Fisherman's Mark is now housed in Homestead Farm Market (pictured above).

More Help is Needed!
Delaware Valley Food Pantry and Fisherman's Mark, both vital resources for under-resourced families in our community, suffered significant damage due to flooding. They have partnered with the City of Lambertville and Lotsa Helping Hands to create the FAQ below. This FAQ contains the most up-to-date information about how you can help.

Thank you, NHSSD!
Thank you to our parent organizations for leading a collection drive. The generous response from our community generated nearly 15 carloads of donated items and $1,500.00 in monetary donations.
