NHS signup to volunteer at Lower School Science Night!
We are excited that our NHS service project is back up and running after a year off due to COVID! Remember, this is mandatory for all current NHS members. The event will be masks REQUIRED for all in attendance, and NHS volunteers will be given a pizza dinner before the event. The event will take place on Thursday February 24 from 6-7:30pm, and volunteers should arrive NO LATER than 5:30pm and plan to stay until 8pm.
This week all current active NHS members will begin receiving an email with a google form to sign up for their station. Please select your top 5 locations to volunteer, and the locations will be filled up on a first come first served basis. The invitation to sign up will be sent to Senior NHS members on Tuesday 1/25 and Junior NHS members on Wednesday 1/26. If you have any questions please contact Ms. Neves.

The event is modeled after TED Talks, and students can give a talk on research, ideas, or experiences of their choice. Email Ms. Towery with questions.
