Special to the Herald

The Nolan Middle School Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society will hold an induction ceremony for the arriving seventh and eighth graders Thursday in the school cafeteria/auditorium. New incoming members should dress suitably for this induction. Dresses, nice slacks, skirts, black pants, etc., are appropriate, but must follow school dress code. For more information, refer to the letter new members have received, or ask Ms. Alley, the Honor Society advisor. Once again, congratulations new members!

This semester’s service project for the Honor Society is supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Association by selling shamrocks.

From Feb. 23 until St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, members will be selling shamrocks, representing this green holiday, during sixth, seventh and eighth grade lunches. The cost of each green shamrocks is a dollar. The gold shamrocks sell for $5 each. All funds raised will contribute to MDA’s programs in the research and health care benefits that offer assistance and faith to the many families affected by the neuro-muscular illnesses.

Nolan Middle School’s Builders Club is participating in Project Heart through Friday. From 8:40 a.m. to 9:10 a.m., members will be collecting clean clothes, new or old, at the bus and car rider lanes each morning. Donations could include T-shirts, jeans, jackets, sweaters, and more. Socks and underwear must be new. These contributions will be gathered to help students in need.

Thank you so much to everyone for supporting us in these service projects.
