For the years of 2015-2016, NHS is focusing on service as well as Peer Tutoring.
The second semester of the 2015-2016 school year the Cleveland NHS chapter will be focusing on mandatory project called Little Free Library. NHS is participating in this project to get the people in the Cleveland area to start reading!
About Little Free Library:
Little Free Library is an organization which encourages people of all ages to read books. They recognize the importance of reading for everyone. The idea behind every Little Free Library is to “take a book, and leave a book,” sort of like the “take a penny, leave a penny” idea. Seniors at Cleveland High School in the NHS chapter are leaving their legacy while the Juniors and many years to come are going to take care of these libraries.
