The 2011 NBMS canned food drive was a success! As part of the Christmas Cheer effort and in cooperation with Onslow United Ministries outreach, NBMS conducted a one week canned food drive. From Nov. 28 to Dec. 2, students and staff collected food items. The items will be used by needy families in our community during the Christmas season.
To add some interest to the food drive, Dr. Barnes (NBMS principal) and Mrs. Fidalgo (Northwoods Park principal) agreed to a friendly competition. The principals agreed to a goal of two cans per student. By week's end, New Bridge was victorious having reached 221% of the original goal as compared to Northwoods Park's 218%. The result was 4.4 cans per NBMS student and 4.2 cans per NWPMS student. Together, the two schools collected over 5,000 cans! Great job BEARS and DOLPHINS!! Merry Christmas!
