NHS students create night shirts for needy children

Friday, May 23, 2008

Northview students recently made night shirts for needy children worldwide. Those participating include Kaylee Clark, Scott VanArsdale, Danielle Kriebel, Makayla Riley, Kourtney Fitch, Tara Gilmore, Shelby Davis, Shelby French and Samantha Starling. Corena Herniter Photo.
Students in Northview High School's Fashion and Textile Technology classes taught by Joanna Connors, made 90 nightshirts that were sent to needy children throughout the world, recently.

The students undertook the big project this year at NHS to learn the basics of sewing and, in turn, gave to charity.

"Each nightgown is made by the students and included in the pocket is a picture of the student who constructed the gown," Connors said.

Connors has had students make nightshirts for four years.

"The class is fun and I don't get the razzing from the guys that I thought I would," senior Scott VanArsdale said.

Other service projects the textiles class have made are; baby blankets and diaper bags that were sent to the Red Cross and walker caddies were given to local nursing home residents.

"Students do their very best work on the projects they give to others," Connors said.

I can not think of anything more important to teach our children than to care for others

Thank you
