Northern Hills is partnering with TLC Garden Centers to sell 6" poinsettias in a decorative pot for $25. This is a great way to decorate your home or office for the holiday season. They make great gifts! Orders are due November 18, 2022.
Poinsettias will be available for pick up on Wednesday, November 30 from 4:00-6:00pm. All poinsettias will be distributed to the name listed on the order form. That person will be responsible to distributing. We cannot break up orders at pick up.
We are selling 6 inch red, 6 inch pink, and 6 inch white poinsettias. Poinsettias are $25 each.

Edmond Public Schools has implemented text messaging
service for parents. Text messaging allows EPS to deliver
important information about school closings, safety alerts,
bus announcements and more via SMS text messaging
through the School Messenger system-the same system
currently being used to send automated phone calls. The
process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.
To receive these messages, you must OPT-IN to the messaging service. Please text "Opt in" (NO HYPHEN) to 67587. By sending the correct message of “Opt in” (NO HYPHEN) you will get this message back: “You’re registered 4 SchoolMessenger notifications. Reply STOP to cancel, HELP for help. (etc)”.

The district has launched an official mobile app designed
to enable parents, staff, students and the broader community
to stay informed and up-to-date on important issues,
information and activities underway within the school community.
The free app is available for download in the Apple and Android
app stores by searching for Edmond Public Schools.
