MCINTYRES BOOKS OF FEARRINGTON TO HELP WITH LIBRARY BOOK DRIVE

Did you know that 65% of our current Northwood High School library is out of date? What does this mean? 65% of books in current circulation were released before 2006. As well, our library has not received any monies to purchase books or materials in four years. We need your help to change that...

McIntyre's Bookstore located in Fearrington, just off of 15-501 has agreed to help Northwood High School with their book drive for our new Media Center. Together with Mrs Kreutzberg, our Librarian we will have a list of books that can be purchased at McIntyre's and donated directly to the Media Center for immediate use by our student body. We will have events and some discounts on items in the store as well, and the best part is you are shopping locally, and giving locally back to the community. Mrs Kreutzberg is working on her list of needed items, and will start to release it next week.

Any questions regarding books please feel free to email Mrs Kreutzberg @ bkreutzberg@chatham.k12.nc.us. Mc Intyre's books is open Daily Mon-Sat 10am-6pm Sun 10am-5pm and their number is 919.542.3030. Please stop in and say hello.


Help to Improve the Courtyard for Students And Staff

The Northwood High School is starting to refurbish our courtyard. We will have 3 workdays available for students and their families to help. On October 7, we are planning a clean up of the trimmed branches and debris. October 14 will be the date we plan on adding pine straw to all of the beds to prepare for winter, and give the courtyard a clean appearance. The 21st will be the remaining work that needs to be completed, and we can't do any of this without support from families like yours. The work day hours will be from 9-2, and all of the hours can be used for the Charger Challenge. You can sign up at the link below

As well, we are looking for a sponsor to provide straw bales for the courtyard, and if you, or anyone that you know is willing to donate them it will be greatly appreciated! We need 115 in total, so this will be a large expense for the school. Please contact Belinda Gauci if you are interested @ belindagauci1@gmail.com
