This year, the NMS Student Council is collecting donations for the PACH (Pepperell Aid from Community to Home). We are encouraging students to donate items from the list below. We are going to incorporate these items in a challenge on our January STEAM Day and will then donate the items to PACH. (Items will not be harmed in the process!) Collection bins are located in each team area. The team who collects the most items will receive a special prize on STEAM DAY!

If you are interested in being a representative for Student Council, now is your chance! 1-2 representatives from each homeroom will be chosen to attend a meeting biweekly (every other week) on Mondays. In order to join Student Council, you will need to write a 2 to 3 paragraph essay explaining why you are interested in joining Student Council. Essays should include: what contributions you can make to the program, any new ideas that you would like the Student Council to take part in, and any experience you have with community service or student leadership (including prior years on Student Council).
Student Council is an opportunity to become a leader in our school and to have your ideas heard! You can make a difference.
Please turn in your essays on the Student Council Google Classroom (the code is bbhq4hi on classroom.google.com) by Monday Sept. 28. Our first meeting is tentatively scheduled for Monday October 5. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Robinson in Room 315. We can’t wait to hear your ideas!
