NCCHS STUDENTS HELP AT LOCAL FOOD PANTRY
Students from the high school volunteered at the Northern Illinois Food Bank Mobile Pantry! They helped serve food to 22 seniors at Thompson Manor and 45 at Kukla Towers and helped deliver food at other locations for any seniors that were not able to come down while they were there. The students plan to continue volunteering throughout the year.
Cinco de Mayo Assembly
We had an amazing day celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Students spent weeks rehearsing their dances and creating their clothing/costumes for the celebration. Bravo!
Did you know:
Cinco de Mayo (pronounced [ˈsiŋko ðe ˈmaʝo] in Latin America, Spanish for “Fifth of May”) is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.
Within Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is primarily observed in the state of Puebla, where Zaragoza’s unlikely victory occurred, although other parts of the country also take part in the celebration. Traditions include military parades, recreations of the Battle of Puebla and other festive events.
Health Professions Education Consortium – Update
The equation is simple: Healthcare-related organizations and businesses need trained, prepared workers; and people in the community need jobs – particularly in stable career paths that offer opportunities for growth and advancement. The Health Professions Education Consortium (HPEC) exists to help those two needs become one another’s solutions.
