The New Manchester High School AVID Program is launching AVID Cares, a Community Service Project in partnership with the National Toy Give-A-Way. AVID Cares donates toys to children in need during the holidays. There are several Toy Drop Boxes placed throughout the school to receive your toy donations. The locations are as follows: the front office, media center, and the classrooms of Mrs. Rogers, Petit, Render, & Ms. Worlds. If you would like to donate please wrap the gift, label if its for a girl or boy, and state the age range. The deadline for donating toys to the Toy Give-A-Way is Dec 14th. Please remember this is the season for giving, so let's show our Jaguar Spirit and be #AVIDstrong. If you have any further questions, please contact Mrs. Rogers in room A1303.
