Personal Hygiene Pantry now at CMS!

Caroline Middle SchoolNJHS students reached their goal of collecting over 3,000 items to help those in need.

Our first priority as the NJHS CMS Chapter, is to address the needs of our community and school and this drive has encouraged our NJHS members to do more. As of October 26,2016 we have officially stocked our Hygiene Pantry. We have collected an abundance of soap, deodorant, toilet tissue, hand sanitizer, feminine sanitary care, tooth paste and brushes, mouthwash, shampoo and conditioner and more. These items will be available to any and all students in need of personal items at school or to take home for their families.

The officers of NJHS will be delivering personal hygiene bags to Bowling Green, Madison, and Lewis & Clark Elementary Schools and to Caroline High School for their students as well. Items will be available through out the 2016-2017 school year, in hopes that this gift of kindness will continue throughout the years to come.

Several personal hygiene has been donated to local shelters and organizations such as RVA and other organizations to help those that are homeless or between blessings.

Astronomy Night at Caroline Middle School!

CMS held their annual Astronomy Night on Thursday, November 10th. Around 75 students and parents came out to enjoy a night of looking at our skies.  Our Caroline Middle School S.T.E.M. Club was able to point our 8 telescopes towards Mars, Venus, the Moon and several star constellations.  The clear picture we saw of our moon was priceless. Some of the students were quoted as saying, “It feels like we can reach out and touch Mars”.  Astronomy night was organized by the S.T.E.M. club and science department at CMS.
