     The Homecoming Dance has been rescheduled and will be on Saturday, November 12! The time will be 7-10pm here in the Cage. This year’s theme is “Aurora Borealis.” Tickets will be on sale soon. 


     I am Messiah Pacheco, President of the NPHS DFY (Drug Free Youth) CATCH Club, and we are doing a fundraiser to fund the program which includes materials for the Poinsettia Parade Christmas Float, candy for Trunk or Treat, and many more events.  Our fundraiser is called Toilet Mover, and we will be moving a toilet into classrooms and students can give money to have it removed.  

  • It will be $8 for removal from office or classroom sent back to DFY (5-216),
  • $16 for removal + sending to a specific staff member of choice
  • $20 for removal + sending to a specific staff member + Staff member goes on an EXEMPT list and never receive it again this year.
