Shark Pride Award

Shark Pride is a service award that is given at the end of the year to students who go above and beyond in their academic accomplishments and school and community service.  Students may stop by the front office and pick up the paperwork which outlines the requirements for this award. Students are responsible for completing their own paperwork and meeting the deadline which will be in April 2018. This is a wonderful opportunity to be recognized for this kind of service as well as building a life-long commitment in helping others.  If you have questions, please contact the NHMS School Office at 949-234-5360.

A special thanks to Kristen Topalian, Lexa Weeks and Gina Hyde who were an awesome help all season and finished the mararthon.


We will start next year's SRLA (Student's run LA Marathon) season in September, if you are interested.  This program is open to 7th & 8th grade students.  You don't need to be a great runner or fast, you just need a positive attitude and a desire to finish.
