Do some holiday shopping, have some fun, and support the Voorhees music programs at the 4th annual Voorhees High School Music Association Winter Festival on Saturday, November 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is FREE.
The festival, held indoors at the high school, features more than 100 crafters and vendors offering everything from knitwear to soaps to jewelry to baked goods to fine crafted woods and dozens of other unique items perfect for holiday gift giving or for enriching your own home. Many of the vendors and crafters are from Hunterdon, Morris and Warren Counties, so it’s a great way to support local small business people.

Registration for Winter Sports is now open from October 14 through November 11, 2013 -
Please note that the Voorhees Athletic Department has moved to a new online process for completing sports paperwork. This process will replace the need for a paper copy of the parent permission form, random drug testing form, steroid form, concussion form, and use of student photo permission form. This online program through FamilyID will ultimately be easier to use and more efficient for both you and the school district than our previous paper process. When you register through FamilyID, you enter your information once for multiple uses, multiple children and multiple programs.
***This online program will not replace the physical examination form, which should still be turned into the health office on a yearly basis, by July 26.***
