PTSA Meeting

Coming September 2020

Message from the Grad Night Committee

Due to the current restrictions of in-person, large group gatherings, we are saddened to announce that our originally planned PTSA-sponsored 2020 Grad Night celebration, of which was to occur following the graduation ceremony on June 4th, is cancelled.  We are currently working to process refunds for all tickets purchased and donations submitted to date. You do not need to take any further action at this time, as your refund will be processed automatically; however, please note that this process may take some time to issue all refunds.  Should you have any questions regarding your refund, please contact gntreasurerptsanhs@gmail.com, and if you have other questions or concerns, please contact Gradnightptsanhs@gmail.com.

Please know that while the health and safety of our graduating Senior Class remains our highest priority, we recognize how meaningful it is for them to have a celebration to recognize this important milestone in their lives.  While the PTSA will no longer be hosting this traditional event, a group of Grad Night Committee parents are currently exploring alternative options for a privately organized, rescheduled 2020 Senior Celebration, to potentially occur in July. Our goal is to create a safe opportunity for the 2020 Seniors to connect in person, enjoy some time together as they celebrate each other, and conclude this chapter of their Northwood High School journey before embarking on their paths ahead.  If you are interested in having your Senior participate in this event, and/or are willing to help in the planning of the event, please contact us at 2020seniorsnhs@gmail.com.  In the interim, please consider reserving your Grad Night ticket refund, and sponsorship support, to contribute towards this new event. More details on such will follow in the upcoming weeks. Thank you!
