Individual Service/ Volunteering 
Remember, you should constantly be involved in this process. As we've discussed, the Community Service Club, under the supervision of Ms. Lewis, is partnered with us to help you complete all required hours. Moreover, Ms. Surgeon's Ivy-League simulation program is looking for volunteers to present to students. Those students who have shown interest, please see Ms. Surgeon as soon as possible for all details.

National Honor Society Week was a huge success!!!

A special thank you to the school's administration- Ms. Champagne, Principal, Dr. Sangster and Ms. Boone, Assistant Principals, for their support  of all NHS activities.

Additionally, thank you to all teachers and students who participated in the food drive. We worked together and were able to make a substantial donation of canned-food to the Salvation Army to benefit Sandy victims.

All other activities, including the distribution of pamphlets, show of NHS videos, recognition of student leaders, team building activities, and "Dress for Success Day" went a far way to inspire and support a standard of excellence from all students at Tyson School.
