NHHS Nurse Amy Wish List

Thank you to all who donated to NHHS’s Nurse Amy’s previous Wish List. It was a huge success, so much so that Amy was able to graciously share some of the supplies with other schools. As you can imagine, there is always a need for more supplies in the nurse’s office to care for our students.  Please consider purchasing items off the Amazon Wish List. This would be the last big push before the end of the school year

Be sure to have items sent to NHHS, 10750 NE 30th, Seattle 98125

Nurse Amy is also wondering if anyone has a wheelchair to donate that is no longer of use as this could really come in handy for students needing mobility assistance. Please coordinate with Amy about delivery,

 If you have questions about this request or Wish List, please email Monica Overby  For other ways to get involved email Thank you!

DO YOU SHOP AT FRED MEYER/QFC?  If yes, and you have a Rewards card, then it is easy for you to raise money for Nathan Hale!  Simply visit Fred Meyer’s Community Rewards page ( and click the button on the bottom left to “link your shopper’s card.”  Search for Nathan Hale and you will see the button to add “Alliance for Education – Nathan Hale High School Co”. You may discover you are already linked to Nathan Hale or another charity, which is fine, but it would be worth taking a look to make sure you are not missing this opportunity. Let’s try to get to 100 participating households by the end of the month, which could generate over $1000/year in funding for our Raiders!   If you don’t already have a Rewards card, easily get one by stopping by the FM Customer Service Counter. Fred Meyer donates $2.6 million per year to non-profits.

Procedures for Early Dismissal– Students who need to leave early should bring their parental note (which should include your signature and phone number) to the Attendance office upon arrival at school.  Parent’s needing to retrieve their students for an appt. should call the Attendance office at 206-252-3684 or email the Attendance office directly at as soon as possible.  Since the Attendance office Secretary is usually at lunch from 1-2pm, retrieving students at the end of the day is not always successful and can be chaotic.  Calling early in the morning or as soon as you know that student needs to leave, yields the most accurate service.
