It is a wonderful opportunity for students who love Math to demonstrate their skills and be exposed to some amazing Mathletes.
Ruckel has gone to State from 2000 to 2014 and in 2016!

Fall Food Drive for Sharing and Caring
NOVEMBER 1 to 15, 2017
Students can turn in non-perishable food items to their first period classes. Class challenges will be made for every 50 items donated and the three classes with the most items donated will receive an award!
As a service organization, we have a major community and school service project each year. The Fall Food Drive is organized by the NJHS to encourage all students and faculty to contribute food items which are gathered at school and donated to Sharing and Caring in Niceville.The Candy Gram Sale is held in February. All proceeds are donated to help benefit the school in some way. This is our annual school service project. The proceeds from the sale are donated to the school. We have donated money in the past for benches, lunch room tables, PE equipment, the sign in front of the school, the school landscaping, the Ram statue, etc.
