North Hills School District Gingerbread House

Since 1994, the students of the North Hills High School Hands for Service Club, Gourmet Foods classes  and Student Council have been supporting Make-A-Wish. More than $90,000 has been raised through various fundraising activities.  During the holiday season, students in Michelle Medic’s Gourmet Foods classes create amazing edible artwork in the annual gingerbread house contest. Students, staff and others vote for their favorites by placing money in each house’s corresponding container. From January 16 at 10 p.m.  through 10 a.m. on January 17 , the  Hands for Service Club and the Student Council held their first dance marathon The dancers stayed on their feet for 12 straight hours, even after having school that day! They danced all night long and participated in activities like an inflatable jousting arena, photo booth, corn hole, volleyball tournaments and a tie-dying station. The event raised nearly $13,000, which was split between Make-A-Wish and the Four Diamonds Fund.
