I hope you all had a restful Winter Break. As this semester comes to an end, I just wanted to express how thankful I am for everyone who has helped me in my role as PFC President. Thank you to all of the families who have donated money to our Education Fund. This money contributes to many areas of the school and it touches every single student. Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who give of their time and energy to help Northgate truly thrive. And thank you Northgate teachers and staff who have personally helped me navigate my role as President. It definitely takes a village.
If you haven't had a chance to see the beautiful new lockers that were installed over the break, you must take a look, they are beautiful. The addition of the new computer lab in the library is an amazing resource for the students. Both of these improvements have really kicked off the new year in a positive way!

If your New Year's resolution is to get more involved at your child's school then I can help you with that! Our PFC is always working with Principal McAllister and Northgate teachers and staff on ways to improve our children's education experience, and there are ways for all parents to be a part of that mission. Whether you have plenty of time or just a little, there is a way for you to get involved. The more hearts, hands, and heads we have working together, the more that we can accomplish and the more fun we will have getting it done. I would love to hear any ideas, thoughts, or questions that you have.
All the best,
Northgate High School PFC President, 2016-2017
