joining NHS, if they have received the packet they must complete the Student

Scoles by the deadline. The deadline has not been announced yet. However, it
may be near the end of November or even into December. Please listen for

attend; food and transportation to the hike and back to school are provided.

Ignition is a highly interactive and customized leadership development program specifically designed to make transition a positive experience for everyone in our school. The ideal Ignition mentor is someone who has a personality that will allow them to "facilitate” well and connect with mentees in a real way. The best mentors aren’t necessarily the smartest or most popular students on your campus, though they may be. You are ideally looking for students who will be able to: get up in front of their Ignition Advisory to speak to their team of freshmen, empathize with freshman in a genuine way, have the time to commit to their responsibilities as an Ignition mentor, and who have the right attitude to make the program a success.
Advisor: Brion Hoke
Working as a collaborative group, we develop full productions that are shown to the student body and the community annually at Trenton Village Theater. I challenge my students to work hard, develop their roles and work as a team to create dynamic productions.
