Norwalk High School issued the following announcement on Dec. 17.
As students and staff are anticipating a much needed and well-deserved break, there are many in the Norwalk Community who need assistance and our Warriors have answered the call.
Leadership students from NMS through NHS led a canned food drive in November to help the Norwalk Food Pantry (sponsored by the Norwalk Ministerial Association and housed out of Norwalk Lutheran Church).
NHS students sponsored a Penny Wars in the last couple weeks as well. The targets for amounts raised? Principal Chris Basinger would get a pie in the face if $200 were raised and Supt. DT Magee would get a pie in the face if students reached $300. The funds would go to help those in need in our immediate community. The person who donated the most would get the honors of pie-ing. AJ ClarkWilt earned the honors (see photos below):
Once cleaned up from the pie-ing, Superintendent DT Magee took it a step further. Dance Marathon-ers have raised over $3000 to aid those affected by Pediatric Cancer and are being treated at Univ of Iowa hospitals. Because they’ve reached over $3000, Magee offered them the opportunity to duck tape him to the wall of the NHS Gym. Students took turns applying the duck tape to see if he’d stay on the wall or fall once the crate holding him was removed:
All told, Warriors have raised over $3500 in the last couple weeks to help those in our immediate community and beyond.
Well done, Warriors!
