Submerged in the spirit of giving, Wayne Valley students have been active in serving the community these past few months. The National Honor Society students set the mood in the month of October by raising funds towards disaster relief for Puerto Rico, one of many areas struck with natural disaster as of late. This was accomplished through a partnership between the organization and the PTO. NHS members were encouraged to purchase an “I Love Puerto Rico” t-shirt, and 100% of the proceeds were directed towards the Hispanic Federation, a disaster relief organization. Members also distributed fliers across grades during lunch. The fundraiser was ultimately very successful, raising the most money across all 13 schools with a total of $769 and 96 sales.

Through November, the Peer Leaders and school nurses hosted a Thanksgiving food drive. The drive drew in a wide variety of non-perishable necessities, which were organized and packaged as a group by the enthusiastic Peer Leaders. All donations were then delivered to needy families.

To end November, the National Honor Society hosted two recycling walks at the middle schools: Anthony Wayne and George Washington. Spending nearly two hours at each school, members collected mass amounts of trash, disposing of the litter properly and spreading the convivial spirit in the meantime. There was also a walk at Wayne Valley High School in the beginning of December, officially kicking off the holiday season.

All in all, Valley is and will be continuing to spread the cheer.
