Senior Project-Volunteer Judges Needed!

Tuesday, May 31 1pm-3pm
Wednesday, June 1 1pm-3pm
at Northgate HS

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 the two afternoons. 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 Mary Jo Leary or contact David Wood directly.
