NORTHWESTERN HIGH SCHOOL
Friday, January 23, 2015
On Tuesday, we will be hosting the one act play festival. Please remember to keep it quiet in the commons and in the halls near the theater. It is likely that we will have some of these students eating lunch during 5th period. Also, we will be parking buses in the sophomore lot on Tuesday. If you normally park in that lot, you will have to park in the main student lot on Tuesday.

Attention Seniors: Applications for the Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Award are now available in the Guidance Office. The award recognizes student achievement.

Information on a creative writing contest is available in the guidance office and also with the junior and senior English teachers.
