NHS is hosting a fundraiser at Panda Express tonight at 31 S. Higley Rd. Higley, AZ 85236. The fundraiser is from 12pm to 10pm. The fundraiser is to support "Relay for Life" as we work for a cure for cancer. Please come and support your fellow classmates and their goal of raising money for this great cause. You must take a flier with you when you go and turn it into Panda when you order. Fliers will be placed throughout the school and you can also pick one up from any member of NHS. We look forward to seeing you there.

Link Crew – ATTN: Incoming Juniors and Seniors
Friday, Feb 24th
We are currently in the process of building a team of leaders to take on the challenge of serving as positive role models and mentors for the Class of 2021.
More and more studies show that if students have a positive experience their first year in high school, their chance for success increases dramatically. To make this a reality at HHS, Link Crew will provide the structure for freshmen to receive support and guidance from juniors and seniors who have been through the challenges that high school poses and understand that the transition to high school can sometimes be overwhelming.
If you are interested in becoming a part of this revolutionary cause on our campus, pick up an application from Ms. Rizzo (Rm 1232), Ms. Noyes (Rm 1236), or other select locations such as the admin or counseling offices. Follow us on Twitter @SOAR_as_One
