NJHS members are active and involved in our school. The members participate in at least one group community service project each year in addition to maintaining their individual service commitments. Past projects include planting flowers around the school, collecting school supplies for needy students in our area, and raising money to buy pajamas for disadvantaged children and battered women. Most recently, our NJHS chapter raised money to purchase and install a Peace Pole and create a Peace Garden on school grounds. The Peace Pole has “May Peace Prevail on Earth” written in eight languages that celebrate eight of the many cultures represented in our school.
