ROTL5KIn just 6 weeks, the 3rd Annual Running of the Lions 5K Run and Walk will be held on Sunday, October 9.  This is the North Hunterdon Education Foundation (NHEF)’s biggest fund raiser of the year and has allowed us the opportunity to fund items such as two water filtration stations, a science refrigeration for Anatomy classes, a color printer for the Special Education Business program. We’ve also funded the Career and College Resource Center to help our students in the career and college process.  The NHEF needs your support to encourage the community to participate (Running, Walking or Volunteering) in the event.

It only costs $20 to register.  Participants will receive a great T-shirt, a gift bag, and have a fun time exercising with the North Hunterdon community.  Runners will be timed and awards will be given in a number of categories. Register at www.Runsignup.com.

The run is going to take place on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at the Spruce Run Recreation Area at 10am. There will be a prize for the team, student organization or group with the most students registered for the race. We would like to see this event become a tradition that the whole North Hunterdon High School Community supports! Can we count on your help? Please contact Kristen Johnson at skjohnson212@comcast.net if you have any questions.

Warmly,

The NHEF Trustees

Booster-Logo-2015Dear Parents and Guardians,

A big warm WELCOME to the Class of 2020 and their families – and a big warm WELCOME BACK to everyone else!! The North Hunterdon Booster Club supports athletic and academic excellence, promotes sportsmanship, and preserves the history and tradition of accomplishment for all student athletes.

I am looking forward to another incredible year of North Athletics. This year we are planning on boosting school spirit with our #UltimateFan contest among the students. The kids will be challenged to attend various events at school and take a spirited picture using that hash tag. A few winners will be picked each week. We are also going to be raising money with our new “Coaches vs Cancer” year long event. We will calendar each sports teams Cancer initiative fundraising event and at the Relay for Life in May, will announce the total dollars raised by our teams. T-shirts will be on sale in October.

The North Hunterdon Booster Club is a 501c3 organization (tax exempt status) that consists of parents, staff and coaches working together to enrich our athletic community.  We ask all families to become members and we ENCOURAGE PARENT PARTICIPATION as a way to become involved with the school’s activities and also make some friends along the way.

The money raised through membership, fundraising activities, clothing sales, and the snack shack help to sponsor our seasonal coach’s breakfast, our custodian appreciation luncheon in January, Dave the Rave’s birthday celebration in February and our senior athletic banquet in June.  At our banquet, we present one senior from each athletic team with a scholarship. The Varsity athletes vote for the senior teammate that sets an example of leadership and sportsmanship throughout their season.  In 2013 we purchased and dedicated a new scoreboard for Singley Field and in 2015 we purchased equipment for our athletic trainers.

PARENT MEMBERSHIP AND INVOLVEMENT IS IMPORTANT TO OUR SUCCESS!!!

The NHHS Booster Club is continually looking for members who are able to volunteer their time and efforts to support our student-athletes.  We are very much in need of volunteers to step in to coordinator and officer positions.  We invite all athletic families to join the main booster club.  Your family membership fee of $25 (for the entire year) allows you to be involved in fundraising activities such as working the concession stand, selling raffle tickets, helping with our coaches breakfasts, custodian luncheon and our senior athletic awards banquet.

We have 26 teams who have organized “Umbrella Clubs”.  They may charge additional dues to cover expenses like sandwiches for away games and banquet fees for their team.  We meet with the reps from each team monthly to talk about fundraising and volunteering opportunities.  They communicate all information with you through email.  Each team is required to have 75% of their JV/Varsity families join the Main Booster Club to be covered by our insurance.

Our North spirit wear can be purchased at Back to School nights, and all year at our outdoor and indoor snack shacks. You can find the items and prices on the Booster Club webpage.  On the main page, click on parent link at top and choose Booster Club from drop down options.

You can find our membership form under ‘Join’ on our BC webpage or click HERE to go to the membership page. We also accept Paypal payments.  Our Paypal button can also be found on our webpage.  Please join us and support all the student-athletes at NHHS.

Thanks in advance for your support of the booster club and GO NORTH!

Debbie House, President

North-SoccerWith around 50 freshmen trying out next week and needing IMPACT Test clearance we are making an adjustment to the schedule.  Monday will be IMPACT Test only with two separate groups. At 1pm we will take the first half of the boys alphabetically from Ailara to Lesica.  The test is in room 128 (hallway to the left of the theater…walk straight back to the end).  The test takes roughly an hour. Once this group is complete they can go home.  The second group is Logar to Zhang and they are to take their test at 3pm. Once finished they can go home.

All freshmen who pass the IMPACT test and are cleared will begin tryouts onTuesday Aug 23 through Friday from 3:15-5:30 roughly.  We expect to make a decision for cuts by that Friday. The first team practice following cuts will be Sat Aug 27 from 8am-10am.

I do not have all of the freshmen on this distribution list so if you know of someone trying out please pass this on so word can spread. Thanks and good luck to all.

Any questions, please email John Simpson at jsimpson@nhvweb.net
