NJHS sells daffodils for American Cancer Society

The eighth and ninth graders sold daffodils from Dec. 18 to Feb. 1  for NJHS to raise money for the American Cancer Society.  The daffodils came in bundles of ten and were sold for $10 each.

The daffodils have been sold for many years.

“The NJHS has been selling daffodils for about 10 years,” ninth grade NJHS advisor Autumn Barry-Kyle said. “I have been in charge of NJHS for nine years.”

“I have been selling daffodils since when I was in NJHS in eighth grade,” ninth grader Emily Little said.

NJHS sells daffodils as part of their group community service.

“All of the proceeds (from the daffodils) go to the American Cancer Society to fund research,” Barry-Kyle said.

Even though the NJHS does not get to choose what they will fundraise, they decided to support the American Cancer Society as their group community service project.

 “The American Cancer Society gets to choose what the fundraising will be,” Barry-Kyle said.

Referring to what her favorite part of NJHS was,“I love working with the students,” Barry-Kyle said.

“I like the fact that in NJHS we are all united and smart.  We have worked hard to get to where we are, whether it is keeping a 90% grade point average or doing community service,” Little said.

However, Little did have one complaint.

“I believe we need to have more meetings as a group, but other than that, there is nothing that I don’t like about NJHS,” Little said.

“The thing that I don’t like about NJHS is that there is a lot of paperwork,” Barry-Kyle said.
