Traveling Historical Trunks

Traveling trunks are designed to incorporate history into the elementary classroom.  Museum volunteers will come to the school with the trunks filled with artifacts to share with students or the trunks may be checked out by a faculty member.

High School ROTC students are invited to participate in an essay contest entitled, “The Veteran I Most Admire.”  Essays of contest winners are included in the Military traveling trunk.

Fiesta Medal Contest  

High School Art students are encouraged to submit a design for a Fiesta Medal using the District’s yearly theme.   Each medal sells for $5; monies from sales are used to support Museum activities.

Oral History Videos:

Over 100 Oral history videos have been collected from former district employees and community members who have significantly contributed to the history of NISD.  These videos are visually shared with the public each day at the School Museum.
