Are you asking for new shoes for Christmas?  Do you have shoes or sports equipment that you don’t use and are about to throw away? Please save your old shoes and sports equipment (in any condition) until the end of break.  NJHS will be collecting donations in January to send to children in Palenque, Dominican Republic.  Help us spread the love of sports to kids in need!

Chris Morris Arts Endowment Summer Experience Scholarship

We are excited to announce the Chris Morris Arts Endowment Summer Experience Scholarship!
