‘Protect Young Eyes’

We are excited to announce our next parent night in the continued conversations of digital citizenship and follow up to Screenagers! Portage Public Schools has invited Protect Young Eyes (protectyoungeyes.com) to visit our community. Led by Chris McKenna, PYE is a team of digital experts who present around the country. All parents and guardians are invited to a parent 90-minute seminar at 6:30, Tuesday April 24 at Northern High School or Thursday May 10 at Central High School. It’s free and no tickets needed! You will walk away empowered with more information and with specific strategies to implement in your homes! You do not want to miss this opportunity.

Prom Tickets

Prom tickets will go on sale April 9, right after spring break, in the counseling office.  Price is $35, cash or check made to PPS.  Prom is April 28, 8:30-11:30pm and will be at the Radisson Plaza this year.

Grad Bash Tickets

Grad Bash tickets are on sale April 16-20 for $50.  After April 20, the ticket price will go to $60.  They can be purchased in the lower commons during both lunches with cash or check made to “PN Grad Bash”.  There is a signup/waiver form that must accompany payment in order to sign up for the buses.  This will arrive with a Senior Mailing in early April, or can be picked up at their ticket table starting April 16.


If your student needs to arrive late, leave early, is going to be away from school for just a few minutes or will be gone all day, thanks for keeping us in the loop.

9th+11th grades, Mrs Clemens: 323-5471

Commemorative Brick Sale!

Brick Sale Promo Card

Here’s a fantastic opportunity to ‘Leave a Legacy, Brick by Brick’  on our new athletic campus — for families, alumni, community members and businesses, student organizations or clubs, sports teams, etc.  You can also honor the memory of a loved one or maybe a beloved staff member with these personalized brick pavers.

We are proud that our students are a vital component in this brick campaign.  Our business students have been a vital part of the design process, our marketing students will be practicing their skills out in the community, our website design class has designed and coded the order website, and our technical arts students will be engraving the actual bricks.  We are very excited about the opportunity to include our students as we raise funds to beautify our campus with beautiful fixtures, lighting, banners, outdoor furniture etc, as the new athletic facilities come online, as well as bolster the departments and programs taking part.  Please consider Leaving a Legacy, Brick by Brick, right here on Northern’s campus. Order at pnbricksale.com.
