Volunteer Hours: To all those wonderful Nicholson volunteers, we
want to thank you for all you do here at Nicholson. We currently have logged
1,091 volunteer hours. Our goal is to log 3,000 by the end of the school year.
On the volunteer sign-up on the desk in the front lobby, all you have to do is
record your name and the hours you spent volunteering. We’ll do the rest.
Gradually, you will see our Volunteer-o-meter rising higher and higher every
week. Everything you do here at Nicholson, whether big or small, helps make
Nicholson shine even brighter!
