     If you’re thinking about college, here’s what’s coming up in the Student Success Center: 

  • Tuesday April 11: SCF will be here helping seniors complete applications and register for Orientations. 

 

      The student board member applications for the Education Foundation are now open. If you know of students that would be interested, please encourage them to apply. This year they have two open positions – a voting position (senior class of 2024) and also a junior (class of 2025) position, who can potentially stay on for the following year. Applications will close on May 5.

     On April 11th from 8am-10am, NPHS will be hosting a career fair in the courtyard with approximately 30 local companies on campus for you to talk to. Please dress appropriately and have your resume in hand!  If you need help with a resume or have any further questions, please see Mr. Coulson in the Student Success Center.  

 

     Prom Updates! Ticket sales for juniors and seniors continue until Friday April 14 during all lunches. The cost per ticket is $80 and a completed contract must be turned in with your money to obtain your ticket. Contracts for NPHS students and guests are available in the office. Seniors who purchased a senior bundle will have to turn in their completed contract to obtain their prom ticket. No contract, no ticket – paid or not. 

 

     Attention all students! Our annual NPHS powderpuff game is on April 28 from 3-6 PM. We are looking for students to participate in the game and engage in side-line cheer. Practices are afterschool on April 13, 20, and 27th from 2:30-3:30. Make sure to sign up with the QR code on screen. Students who signed up will be tie-dying their jerseys on April 20th from 3:30-4:30.

     On Monday, April 17th Suncoast Blood Bank will be on campus from 8 am to 1 pm to conduct our final blood drive of the year. Sign-ups for the blood drive will be April 13th and 14th during all lunches in the cafeteria.  

     Seniors: If you were planning on getting the scholarship with Suncoast Blood Bank this is your last chance to get your third donation done on campus.   Here are some helpful tips before you donate: make sure to eat an hour before donating, drink lots of decaffeinated fluids, and bring a valid ID such as a learner’s permit or driver’s license. If you do not have either one of these forms of ID, the attendance office can provide you with a printout of your gradebook which can be used. Each donor will receive a free t-shirt, snacks, and a Chik-Fil-A sandwich. Suncoast blood bank also plants a tree for every blood donation. You will be able to track your tree and help the planet.
