Interact Leaders showed KINDNESS, TEAMWORK, PASSION, and COURAGE for braving the cold and working our ICE out hunger event!  It was so much fun for Spartans of all ages and it was great to see the leaders put service above self!
Thank you to the 60+ NHS students that helped at Lower School Science Night! You all  were amazing; wonderful with the kids, excited about your stations, and made clean up happen super fast! Thank you for your KINDNESS, TEAMWORK, and PASSION!
