Students will be unable to use their G-Suite (CCSD Google) accounts as of August 1. Don't panic as this is due to an annual reset. Most likely working through the school library, students will reset their passwords once the school year starts. If you can’t wait until then, drop Book Master Dwyer an email or send him a message using the school web site’s contact form. Students going into ninth grade should contact their high schools.
NJHS is hosting a fundraiser for Southern Nevada’s Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) called “Pennies for Patients”. Beginning Monday March 5 through Friday March 9, each first period class will be collecting change to donate to LLS. The class that collects the most money by Friday March 9 will win a donut party! In addition to the weekly collection, NJHS will host a pie throwing event: Mr. Hagar, our 7th grade Reading Teacher, has generously volunteered to be the target! During second lunch on Friday March 9th, students can try to hit him in the face with a pie for $1 per throw! Thank you for supporting NJHS with this very important cause. For more information about the LLS organization go to www.lls.org/southern-nevada.

Woodbury is gearing up for an epic Nevada Reading Week as we will explore how Reading is a Voyage! We will celebrate this annual event from February 26 to March 2. For literacy night (Monday - 2/26), we will host big-time guest author J. Scott Savage, the fantasy author of the Mysteries of the Cove series, the Case File series, etc. Get autographed copies of his books! The book fair will also run, giving plenty of time for shopping. Bring the whole family out for literacy night. In addition, there will be theme days, so students can get dressed for fun. Do you have books sitting around that nobody is going to read again? Exchange them for new books at our book swap. We’ll have book bingo every morning and a poetry contest. We’ll also be treated to a visit by local author Vickie-Ann Bush. Do you like selfies? Submit a book selfie or a photo of yourself holding your favorite book. Guess the identify of our mystery readers while you play the book emoji challenge. The Reading Week Committee has been working tirelessly to deliver a week of splendor, so what’s here is only a teaser. A student packet will go home on February 22, so stay tuned! Until then, inquiries can be made through Book Master Dwyer in the library.
