Nottingham is transforming its landscape one brick at a time! Purchase an engraved brick and support the greening of the 50-acre yard. Your personalized brick will be placed in Nottingham’s circular entry gardens. Recognize your year of graduation, celebrate your involvement in a Nottingham activity, or honor a favorite teacher, coach, or administrator. All funds will go to support the revitalization of Nottingham’s landscape: main entrance shade garden, new trees to provide shade and canopy for the sidewalks, and native shrubbery to screen the parking lots adding color to the school.
Nottingham's librarian, Manami Tezuka, is requesting help in meeting library needs.
Because Nottingham has a large special needs population and a large immigrant population, Ms Tezuka tries to find books that will appeal to students who are of high school age but read at a lower-than-high-school level. She has built up the fiction collection from school funds but she would like to build up the non-fiction collection.
If you would like to support the library, checks may be written to the Nottingham Library and sent to Nottingham High School, 3100 E Genesee St. Syracuse NY 13224.
