STEP IT UP! – P.E. DEPARTMENT FUND RAISER
 
NHMS STEP IT UP FUNDRAISER HAS BEEN EXTENDED!!  The Bonus Turn in Day is Thursday, March 5th through 1st period classes.  Checks need to be made out to “NHMS Boosters”.  A copy of the Game Board is attached, in case you need one.
 
 
Help the NHMS PE department raise funds for new PE equipment. We have been searching for a fitness based alternative to product sales and “STEP IT UP!” is the perfect match! Please do what you can to help your child sell their game board spaces. Remember, they only need to sell SIX spaces to get their VIP TICKET to our event (although our goal is for each student to sell all 12 spaces on their game board!).
 
The NHMS fitness center needs new exercise cycles, Elliptical machines and treadmills.  Our goal is to purchase at least 5 new cardio machines to rejuvenate our aging fitness center.  Students received packets with all the information in their PE classes last week.  Please help NHMS PE department in our fundraising efforts.  We are hopeful to have all students sell at least six coupons!!    The first coupon turn in days is this Thursday, 2/25, during 1st period classes!! There are lots of fun prizes for students who sell 6 or more coupons, including the STEP IT UP inflatable obstacle course!!
