Ms. Boehm's NPHS FCCLA group took part in a wonderful service project at their most recent district meeting.
They worked with other area schools to cut and sew 749 stockings that will be filled with goodies and sent to Indiana soldiers that are stationed overseas during the holidays.
We are #newpalproud of this incredible service project benefitting Hoosiers who can't be home this holiday season.
Bentley's Buddies at NPI
Bentley's Buddies is an organization that provides animals, along with their owner/volunteers, to children in learning environments. Research indicates that reading skills, comprehension, confidence, and the love of reading are immensely improved in situations where children are relaxed.
Our NPI Speech Pathologist Mrs. Dobbins has worked with Bentley's Buddies to help bring this program to NPI. Her therapy dog, Muffin, is pictured below.
Bentley's Buddies will also be soon sending a dog to help our children who may need a boost with reading or comprehension.
Help Stock the Dragons Giving Closet
Our NPJH staff has created the Dragons Giving Closet to help our families that may need some extra assistance this holiday season.
If you have any extra quantities of toiletries or necessities, please drop them off at NPJH starting November 26th. The Giving Closet will then provide these items to students in need.
We're looking for items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, floss, combs, brushes, shampoo, conditioner, other hair products like mousse or gel, hair ties, deodorant, q-tips, detergent, razors, shaving cream, baby wipes, body powder, basic first-aid supplies, and lotion. Please bring any of these items off to NPJH when we return from Thanksgiving break.
