Huskie Field Celebration!
Part of the excitement for our new athletic campus is the long-sought opportunity to continue established Huskie traditions but also building new traditions on our own fields. While construction on our Huskie Stadium will continue thru the summer of 2018, we are so excited that our brand new Huskie Field will be open for play this season!!
On Saturday September 9, we will host our first home soccer games and will officially open Huskie Field with a fun opening celebration starting at 4pm. We will have a ribbon cutting, a time lapse of the construction, memorabilia and yearbooks showcasing the history of PNHS soccer, food, kids activities — all free and open to the public in the Dog House, adjacent to the new field. During half-time of the Varsity game, there will be a special presentation of former Huskie soccer coaches and players. We will also have special commemorative tshirts on sale.
4-6pm: The Doghouse will be open with displays, memorabilia, food and beverages, games, etc
5:00: JV soccer game
6:15: Ribbon cutting, along with music from our PNHS Marching Band
6:30: Inaugural Varsity soccer game (vs Mattawan) with halftime tribute to past coaches and alumni players
While the celebration is free to the public, we are bound by MHSSA rules and there will be a $5 charge to enter the game.
We invite the entire community to join us in Building New Traditions!
Commemorative Brick Sale!
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.
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.
10th+12th grades, Mrs Mein: 323-5562
