IPSF Innovative Grants Program Award - Northwood High

Letter from IPSF Director of Marketing & Communications, Kellie Pendergest:

Good morning! 

I wanted to extend our congratulations to your school community! As you may have already heard, your school received a grant award as part of IPSF’s 2020 Innovative Grants Program. The grant recipients were recognized last week at a special reception in their honor. Your school received the following grant:

Northwood High School - $4,716.8

Hope Squad: Preventing Youth Suicide

Megan Keller

A peer-based suicide prevention program to reduce self-destructive behavior and youth suicide by training, building, and creating positive culture change in schools and communities.

Please help in spreading the news to your PTA board and sharing with your parent community when possible. IPSF grants are funded through corporate sponsors and the Parents Appreciating Teachers and Staff (PATS) program. Parents who purchase PATS are helping to promote innovation in classrooms across the district and make grants like this possible. We have launched the PATS campaign and appreciate your help in making that connection so that your parents understand how their support benefits your school directly! PATS are available now at 

To learn more about this grant and how your school will implement it, I would encourage you to contact the teacher(s) listed above and/or your principal for more information. 

Thank you!!!
