                                                           Many of our families are not receiving text messages.  To                                                               receive these messages, you must OPT-IN to the                                                                           messaging service.

Pup Pals is off and running but WE NEED YOU! Pup Pals is a group of people who can commit about 30 minutes a week to provide a little extra reading support to some of our Husky Pups. We can work with whatever time frame you are available, our students just need YOU to help encourage them!  There are still more students that would benefit from a Pup Pal one-on-one time.  

 

If interested, please email puppals@northernhillspto.com for more details and let us know when you might be available.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Watch D.O.G.S. Wanted

 

Ask all your Husky dudes if they can be a Watch DOG!

Are you a Husky Pup father, grandfather, uncle, or adult cousin? Then we need you for as little as 1 hour or up to 1 day of your time to walk the halls, give high fives at recess, or just make sure all is well in the building! We'd love your help, and the students love to see our Watch DOGS on patrol! We're happy to work with your schedule!

Please check out the link for SPECIFIC DATES WHERE WATCH DOGS ARE ESPECIALLY NEEDED and get signed up for a shift! Be sure to include your email address so we can send further instructions. Remember- if the dates do not work for you, pick any date and time and email watchdogs@northernhillspto.com  or call directly at 405-726-3605 to volunteer or to get more info! We appreciate any time you are able to help!
