NHS Senior Projects
Community Volunteers Needed

Tuesday, June 2 & Wednesday, June 3, 2015
1:00 – 3:00 pm
Location: NGHS

We are looking for community volunteers to judge Senior Projects. Please take a moment to consider being part of this worthwhile endeavor—all are welcome—past NGHS students, present and past parents of NGHS students, friends and neighbors of the NGHS community.

These oral presentations are a vital component of the Senior Project, a graduation requirement of all Northgate students. It consists of three parts: a research paper, a tangible project on which students receive advice and assistance from an adult mentor and an oral presentation to a panel of judges including 2 community volunteers, 2 NGHS teachers and 2 juniors at NGHS.

All presentations take place on campus during two afternoons: Tuesday, June 2 and Wednesday, June 3, 2015.

We are asking you to commit to one or both of these afternoon sessions. You would arrive at Northgate at 12:55 and your responsibilities should be complete by 3 PM.

Please reply via email to Mary Jo Leary or David Wood.

Teacher Appreciation Committee

Volunteers Needed!

The Teacher Appreciation Committee is looking for volunteers to donate food for the teacher appreciation luncheons that are held on throughout the year.

Typically, the food can either be dropped off at school the morning of the lunch or at a designated house the evening before the event. Typical food requests include salads, soups, pastas, desserts, breads, etc.This is a great way to show your appreciation for our wonderful Northgate teachers.

Please sign up to help by sending an email with your name and phone number and we will add you to the volunteer list.
