• The NTMS Guidance Department, together with staff at the North Tonawanda Learning Center, has started a volunteer program entitled "Helping Hands".  Middle school students assist, with adult supervision, Orleans- Niagara BOCES students who have some developmental delays.  Activities include reading, practicing motor skills and participating in arts and crafts.  Our students are able to experience an understanding of people with disabilities, satisfaction that comes from helping others and learning to be responsible.  Students interested in pursuing a career in the helping profession, can obtain invaluable experience.
