Super Service Friday 2.0!

Hey everyone! Our next meeting coming out of Spring Break is on Tuesday, April 4th. That following Friday, April 7th, we will be having another Super Service Friday in the Language Plaza that’s packed with opportunities for you all to get in some of your school-related service hours AND meet your Blood Drive participation requirement!

These are the opportunities that will be taking place on Super Service Friday:

  1. Hanging up posters in the bathrooms on the inside of each stall. Many of you have probably seen the posters detailing how to use the new toilet handles, but many stalls do not have these signs up and administration would like us to help hang them up in every stall.
  2. Making Blood Drive posters. This is super easy, fun, and quick service! Don’t feel like you have to be super creative to take part in this opportunity. Participation in this activity fulfills your requirement of contributing to the Spring Blood Drive.
  3. Making Coffeehouse posters. These posters will include the dates and other information for both Spring Coffeehouse auditions and the actual event. Participation in this activity fulfills your requirement of contributing to Spring Coffeehouse.

Thanks everyone! We hope to see you in the Language Plaza after school for Super Service Friday 2.0! 🙂

Service Opportunity: Special Olympics Basketball Tournament

Stillwater Area High School will be hosting the Special Olympics basketball competition this Sunday, and we’re looking for NHS members to volunteer to be Half-Court Referees, Scorekeepers, or other positions during the games.

There are plenty of spots left to register, and registration is very quick. You can sign up in a group with your friends, too! This is a great opportunity to get in your NHS service hours for Second Semester in a way that’s also really fun.

For more information on volunteer positions and to register for time-slots, please visit this link. We hope to see you there on Sunday!

Semester 1 Hours Check-In

Hello everyone! As you should know, Semester 1 hours are due Tuesday, January 24 at 3:00 pmno exceptions.

This list is a compilation of all of the hours that have been submitted for Semester 1 thus far. Please double check that you have submitted your required 10 hours. 2 of your hours must have been through NHS, unless you did not submit your summer hours; in that case, you must have at least 5 hours through NHS.

After the submission of Semester 1 hours has closed, the officers will be enforcing consequences for members who have not followed through with the commitments that they made to NHS. These consequences include, but are not restricted to, being kicked out of NHS. Seniors, if this happens to you, you may have to alter your applications to remove NHS as an extracurricular and notify your colleges that you have been kicked out.

If you have concerns about anything, please contact an officer ASAP. We are more than happy to listen to and work with you!
