NJHS is creating care packages for our brave soldiers fighting for our freedom overseas. Members will be bringing Ziploc bags, shaving cream, lotions, along with small items to lend a taste of home like stuffed animals, as well as earbuds for music and other media.

NJHS volunteers created the care packages using items brought in by Mrs. Gates and other members. Most of the items in the care packages were hygiene products such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, tissues, and chapstick.

These care packages will be shipped to Van Nuys for Operation Gratitude. Service family members are also able to request a care package from their loved ones.

Ms. Thach is currently a math and CCR teacher at Stacey Middle School. Her dream of becoming a teacher started her sophomore year. Ms. Thach has been fulfilling her dreams for 12 years, 10 years at Webber Elementary and two at Stacey.

One of her greatest accomplishments is starting the garden club at Stacey. Ms.Thach found gardening in May 2013, when she had tried to prevent weeds from growing. She said that she “fell in love with it” and had found “something she was good at.” Ms.Thach is also proud of fixing her house, graduating from college, and her teaching career.

Had teaching not panned out, Ms.Thach’s second career choice would have been Federal Bureau of Investigation agent. She said as a young child she thought the job of FBI agent would be “active and something new.” However, Ms.Thach states,” I love teaching, so it will never happen.” More…

The groups walked around the park and did activities that taught teamwork and leadership skills. During the training, the students also got to ride Splash Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean. More…
