Parents join students for Thanksgiving Lunch
group of 100 parents joined NHMS students for Thanksgiving Lunch on November
21. Everyone enjoyed the delicious turkey & dressing with the works. We are
glad parents were able to take advantage of spending time with their children
during the school day. Cafeteria Director, Ms. Vivian McBride noted, “This was
a big success.” We appreciate all the efforts by Ms. McBride and the cafeteria
staff members to make sure everything ran smoothly for our special guests.

We extend a very special "Thank You" to Miss Central High School, Brittany Cato! She worked with all the girls as they prepared for the pageant. Brittany developed the choreography for the opening number and coached the girls in stage presence and individual introductions. Her leadership style made the practices enjoyable for everyone.
We also extend a very special "Thank You" to Genna Rivers who provided special music for the pageant. Genna is a very talented individual!

Principal Scandrol was a 2013 Kiss a Pig Candidate!
Kissing a Pig Equals Closing the Gap on Illiteracy! We would like to thank everyone who contributed to Mr. Scandrol's campaign. Although he did not win this time, all of the candidates, campaign managers and volunteers collected $10,526 for the First Steps programs. The Kiss a Pig Campaign is sponsored by Chesterfield County First Steps. Your donations will help support programs for children, birth to 5 years old, and their parents in Chesterfield County. Thank you for your support!
This year's Kiss a Pig winner was Mr. J.E. Aldridge of Pageland. Congratulations to Mr. Aldridge!
New Entry Requirements for 2013-2014 School Year
Attention Rising 7th graders and Parents
South Carolina requires ALL 7th grade students to show proof of a Tdap shot to attend school.
Tdap is a booster vaccine that protects your child from three dangerous diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough also called pertussis.
DHEC wil be offering FREE Tdap shots during a special clinic on August 14 from 1:00pm until 6:30pm at the Chesterfield County Health Department in Chesterfield.
If your 7th grader has not gotten their Tdap shot yet, I strongly encourage you to attend the special clinic and get a free vaccine.
