This year the National Honor Society members are raising money for a commons area for the student body. This commons area will be located on the south west side of the new building. During nice weather the NHS members hope that the students and staff will use it as an eating area during lunch or another area to conduct class.
The commons area will have a brick retaining wall and 4-octagon picnic table, which we hope can be built by volunteers from the community. We are looking, in the future, to add lighting and a fountain. The main feature of the area will be the memory bricks that will make up the flooring for the area. A memorial brick is a brick that is inscribed with a name and or date of a community member, alumni, or someone who the community or school would like to remember. We are looking for community members and alumni to purchase these memory bricks, which will also help with the cost of the area. The area will also feature plaques of students and faculty that we have lost over the years. The NHS chose this fund raising idea because they want present and past students to have a place they can come to enjoy and visit.
The cost of each brick is $35 dollars. There are two ways to purchase the bricks. You can go onto the schools web site and click on the commons area link. There you will have step-by-step instructions on how to choose your inscription and payment plan. You can also purchase bricks by contacting Patti Knott, the counselor, at the high school at 834-3393.
The National Honor Society members are also looking for volunteers to help build the tables or donation money to help this project happen. NHS would like to thank these people for already donating to the area: Jeff Wyant, Shawn Walker, Jim Woods, and Mike McGarigle. Any questions please call Mrs. Knott.
