December Service 

NHS students are very busy this month supporting the work of the Salvation Army.  Bell ringing occurs at each of the markets in Honeoye Falls and Mendon on weekends. Drop boxes for new or gently used childrens books are located throughout the school district and community. We truly appreciate the support of this caring and generous community.

October Service Fundraiser

The HFL National Honor Society will hold a community service fundraiser to support the fight against breast cancer.  NHS students will sell pink t-shirts (cost$20) celebrating the importance of community and working together to fight this disease.  HS students can purchase shirts during lunches Oct 2-7.  The community can purchase them by submitting the form attached to Mrs Harvey in the Attendance office or Mrs Witkowski in the Counseling Center.  T-shirts will be available for distribution October 23.  All will be encouraged to wear the shirts at upcoming sporting events at the end of October. One half of the monies raised will go to the American Cancer Society

NHS extends a big thank you to Lupinetti's Hair Styling, Rucks Pizza and Mendon Spring Farms for helping us with this project.
