Please use this link to sign your child up for the Graduation Party on Thursday, May 26th from 7-9 p.m. at NBJH. Your PTO dues must be paid in full in order to sign up as it's a PTO-sponsored event.  As in years past, our goal is 100% participation, so we would love to have every student attend! If a scholarship is needed, please contact Scott Meek.

AND…. we need YOU! Many parents have already been helping behind the scenes for months now, but we would love your help as well! There are many available shifts still open. Please click here  to volunteer! We are asking as many parents as possible to help with set up, chaperoning the event, and clean up.
