The Santa Project


The 30th Annual NHS Santa Project money drive starts on Monday December 8th.  The National Honor Society is hoping to raise $6,000.  All of the collected money goes to buy Christmas presents for needy local children whose names are on American Heritage Bank’s Spirit of Christmas tree.  Please encourage your students to contribute to this worthy cause.  Every penny helps.  


This is a competition between all first hour classes.  The top two classes with the highest dollar/student totals will be treated to breakfast on Friday, December 19th.  


The NHS Santa Project shopping trip is scheduled during the school day on Wednesday December 17th.  

Mannford FFA is selling raffle tickets to win this lap quilt. 100% of the proceeds of this raffle will go towards the 2014 Santa Project. Tickets are 1 for $5, 3 for $10, or 6 for $20. The drawing will be held Friday, December 12th. Look for an FFA Member to get your tickets and spread a little Christmas cheer!




I would like to thank you for your continued support of the NHS Annual Service Project. This marks the 30th year of the Santa Project, and so far a grand total of over $93,000 has been contributed by Mannford students and staff!

This year there are 274 Angels on the Tree at the Bank! Last checked, there were still 180 left! Other ways to help are to adopt an Angel from the tree yourself, or make a monetary donation at the high school towards the Santa Project.

There will be dress up days this week in honor of the NHS Santa Project!
