Patriot Post

The Weekly Update for NPHS families, Sept. 2 - 7, 2019

Recap: Last Week, A Week of "Firsts"

Hello Patriot Family!

In an attempt to help keep you "in the know" on all things NP High School this year, I will be sending out the Patriot Post on a weekly basis. So if you know of a NPHS family that is not receiving this, please let our front office staff know (907-488-3761) so that we can contact them and include their email on our outbound list.

This year is off to a great start! Last week was a week of firsts: Our first normal weekly schedule, our first week of the new buzzer security system, our first Student Support Program days where students with their teachers went over the Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Behavioral Consequences Handbook, our Open House Night, and our first Fire Drill evacuation. All of our sports teams competed with games/meets being played by our tennis team, flag football team, X-C running team, volleyball team, football team, and swim team. For more details on "everything North Pole High School," be sure to check out our website and Facebook page.

And finally, it's a new month, so happy September! Our message this year is that NPHS is OUR School. Together, we are working to make it a safe, positive place to get a great education. We are about making people better and we use rewards and consequences toward that end. Being on time, doing your work, and affording respect toward all NP Patriots are some of the things we encourage. So welcome to a new month of school, and thank you for allowing us to partner with you in educating your student.

Keep reading for this week's events...
