    ***Spring Break 5k: Start a new (pre) Spring Break tradition by running or walking in the family friendly 5k brought you by the Northeast PE department!  The event will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 10 a.m. at Northeast.  All community members (students, parents, staff, friends, etc.) are invited to attend.  Register for free with your child's PE teacher or on the morning of the race.  A flyer for the FREE event is attached.***

    ***Big Smiles Dental Clinic: Our school has partnered with Smile Programs to offer in-school dental care on Tuesday, February 28, 2017. If your child does not see a dentist regularly or you would like them to see the in-school dentist, simply fill out a permission form. There may be no cost to you if your child is insured with Medicaid! Private insurance and affordable self-pay options are also available.***

    *** Parkway North High School is presenting Schoolhouse Rock LIVE!  This is a young audience friendly production appropriate for Elementary and Middle School students.  Introducing young people to live theatre is a great way to encourage creativity, empathy, and social skills.  This show encourages audience participation and interactions with the cast.  We are sure you remember Schoolhouse Rock either from Saturday morning cartoons or from classes you took as children.  The PNH Theatre students hope you will join them for some fun and to share a new experience with your school age children.  The show is 90 minutes long and starts at 7:00PM on Thursday, March 2nd and Friday, March 3rd (the box office opens at 6:00 and the house opens at 6:30).  We have also scheduled a 2:00PM Matinee on Saturday the 4th at 2:00 PM.  Ticket prices are: $5 for students under 12, $6 for Senior Citizens and Children over 12, and $8 for Adults.  Tickets can be reserved by calling the PNH Theatre Box Office at 314-415-5626.  Please leave a message with the date of the performance you would like to attend, the number of each ticket type you would like us to reserve and a good number to reach you.  A student box office staff member will call you after school hours within a day or two of your call.***
