North Central High School Cheer Leaders
Great things come in small packages. The NC Kiwanis Club is a small but powerful force within the Nora/NV/NCHS community that works tirelessly to provide resources for our students and families. They recognize and understand the need and look to support the academic as well as the social and emotional needs of our students and families. For the past two years, Kiwanis has provided all of the food and served over 100 Nora students and families a Thanksgiving meal Nora. They sponsor our monthly Certified Panther Cub of the month with a 25 gift card and they also sponsor many Nora families for the holidays. They go above and beyond to also help recognize our amazing teachers for their hard work and dedication.
The Washington Township Lions Club, that traditionally keeps busy selling Christmas Trees on 86th Street and corn at the
Indiana State Fair, has for the second consecutive year delivered dictionaries to each and every third grader in Washington Township Schools. A rich commitment to building relationships and supporting their community, the local club made it a priority to personally visit each and every elementary school and place a dictionary in the hands of each student. During the week of October 24, 2016 the Washington Township Lions Club delivered a total of 929 dictionaries among all seven elementary schools. That included leaving 5 or 6 extras at each school for students who may move in later in the year and one for the teacher if they wanted one. In the fall of 2015 they delivered 901 dictionaries to our students.
