PTSA Programs

Seeking Parent Speakers for IUSD Career Exploration Program

This year, all of the high schools within IUSD are partnering together to create the "Pursue Your Passion" career exploration program via Zoom. Just like the NHS career speaker program, it will give students the availability to connect with industry professionals and gain insight on the different industry occupations. It will also give our Northwood students an opportunity to participate in the series with a broader speaker base to draw from. 

If you are interested in sharing your experiences with the students, please complete the form here

For more info, please email VP of Programs, Ginger Kawanami, at ProgramsPtsaNhs@gmail.com.


NHS Athletics Boosters

“Finter” sports (Cross Country, Football, Boys Volleyball, Girls Volleyball, Boys Water Polo and Girls Water Polo) season begins Monday, November 2nd.  Voluntary parent donations are key to providing additional coaches, tournaments, equipment, athlete awards, and other various costs that go beyond what IUSD funds for each program.  We invite parents of athletes in “finter” sports to support their programs by donating to NHS Athletics Boosters Club here.

All other spring sports will continue to run workshops until their season begins on January 25th. Families can also donate for these programs to cover the coaching costs for their program’s workshops if so desired.

Visit the NHS Booster website for more info.
