Please consider supporting a School Supplies Drive for a village in Zimbabwe
During the last two weeks of school there will be a school supplies drive taking place to help better the education of the children in Ngamo, a small village in Zimbabwe. Ideally, if you have any new or gently used pens, pencils, colored pencils, erasers, and crayons please donate to the boxes in your school. You may find more information and an Amazon wish list here.Thank you!
Message from the 11th graders leading this effort…
Hello NAMS Families,
Our names are Fallon Hurley, Jackie Rogers, and Kate Fitzgibbons, and we are three juniors at North Andover High School. This year we decided to start a project for our nonprofit class that is centered around a small village in Ngamo, Zimbabwe. We will be collecting new and gently used school supplies from both students and parents to donate to the primary school in Ngamo.
Ideally, we are looking specifically for pencils, pens, colored pencils, crayons, and erasers, but any item will go a long way.
Thank you so much for your consideration and for taking the time to read about our project and contribute towards helping the children of Ngamo.
Fallon, Kate, and Jackie

Support Our Seniors
DID YOU KNOW?
Every year, the North Andover community pulls together to provide a safe, fun-filled, substance-free, overnight celebration for the entire North Andover High School graduating class. This year’s June 3rd SOS “All-Knight” Graduation Party marks the event’s 28th anniversary, making it one of the longest running of its kind!
The annual efforts of a dedicated committee, dozens of volunteers, and generous donations of food and funds by numerous local businesses and individuals highlight how much this tradition is valued in our town.
ATTENTION PARENTS OF UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We aim to give senior parents the night off, so we’re counting on you to pay your “dues” in advance. Help keep this wonderful tradition going, and one day soon you’ll sleep well knowing your own child has a safe place to celebrate on their graduation night. SOS Volunteers
Thank you for your support!
