KIND ACT:  BRING IN A CANNED GOOD FOR THE FOOD BANK.

GOOD CAUSE: “PURPLE OUT DAY”. WEAR PURPLE TO SUPPORT ADHD AWARENESS

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects children and teens and can continue into adulthood. ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed mental disorder of children. Children with ADHD may be hyperactive and unable control their impulses. Or they may have trouble paying attention. These behaviors interfere with school and home life. It’s more common in boys than in girls. It’s usually discovered during the early school years, when a child begins to have problems paying attention. Adults with ADHD may have trouble managing time, being organized, setting goals, and holding down a job. They may also have problems with relationships, self-esteem, and addiction.

NJHS helps out family with the Texas We Care project!

Texas Resident Invited to Shop at CMS!

Caroline Middle School National Junior Honor Society students hosted a TEXAS WE CARE! drive during the month of September. Students, staff and community members donated over 5,000 items over 55 care packages to assist residents impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Various items were sent, including personal hygiene products, clothes, shoes, book bags, school supplies, cleaning products, detergent, sheets, and much more.

CMS, National Junior Society (NHJS) Sponsor, Mrs. Baker-Latney had the honor of meeting Tristan, a Texas resident who was affected by Hurricane Harvey. After Hurricane Harvey destroyed Tristan’s home, he relocated to Caroline County, though his parents and siblings were unable to relocate.

Tristan was invited to shop at the NJHS Hygiene Pantry. Not only did Tristan select items that he needed, he was also encouraged to select items for his parents and siblings. Tristan stated, “I’m very grateful, and it’s such a great feeling that young students in another state are willing to help us, Wow!”  The items selected for his parents and siblings were sent through priority mail.

This year, the NJHS will go above and beyond to help families. Our goal is to assist families within our community, throughout Virginia and our country. As NJHS President Jasmyne Lewis stated, “We would want others to help us if we were in need here in Virginia.” As a result of the generous donations collected. Caroline Middle School haves additional items and care packages available for families in need. Our CMS student leaders understand the value of building relationships and exceed in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Character, Service, and Citizenship. They are definitely implementing “Scholars Today Leaders tomorrow.”

Kindness is Contagious Campaign!

CMS has kicked off a Kindness is Contagious Campaign! Throughout the month and continuing through the year, students will have the opportunity to recognize one another and participate in activities that help the community.  We are creating a paper chain that we hope will run throughout the school where students have the ability to report kindness they see.  Additionally, beginning next Friday, students will have whole school acts of kindness they are encouraged to participate in.  Friday October 20th, students will be asked to bring in a canned good to donate to the local area Food Bank.  #Kindnessiscontagious@CMS
