Come during lunch to learn about and practice the art of storytelling! Bring your lunch down from the cafeteria and eat in the library. Afterwards, the fun begins! The sessions build on each other, so you will want to attend all sessions. After doing warm-ups, tellers will get ready for the Bristlecone Storytelling Festival. After the school-wide event, we will send school champions to the regional event. The Public Library heaters host these region festivals.

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.
