North Schuylkill was represented by 4 students at The 24th Annual Susquehanna University Honors Band Festival, held February 19-21. This is a unique event developed for the purpose of recognizing the achievements of exceptional high school musicians.
Thirty volunteers from the local Lowes Distribution Center 961 in Gordon dedicated six hours of their time this past Saturday to beautify the entrance of the North Schuylkill Junior Senior High School. The Lowe’s Heroes did a fantastic job cleaning up the area, creating a beautiful landscape.
North Schuylkill students and recent graduates volunteer as camp counselors for a week at Camp Spifida held at Camp Victory in Millville, Pennsylvania. Throughout the week, our students and young alumni help children with Spina Bifida experience an exciting and memorable week of summer camp.
During the trip North Schuylkill students learned about the geothermal activities that shape Iceland. They visited waterfalls, geysers, the very edge of the North Atlantic plate, black sand beaches, a geothermal spa, and several museums. They also hiked on a glacier that was over 300 meters thick!
Mr. Geiswhite's class takes a quick break from their experiments in Centralia for a group photo! The students used a NASA supplied drone to test air quality and to record thermal images to map hot spots.
Due to construction on the lights for Ghosh Orthodontic Field, Spartan Stadium will be closed until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding while we undergo these upgrades.

Pool Party Request Information
February 17, 2016
From HS Activity Director - Jennifer Cory:
One of the very first things that must be done when you contact me requesting to rent out the Natatorium is to fill out the building usage request form. This building request form should be completed about a month and a half/two months before the party because it would need to get approved by the school board at their monthly school board meeting. This completed form, along with my signature, will ensure that there are no other events going on that day which would conflict with their request. Along with this form, a certificate of the party’s homeowner’s insurance must be handed in as well.
Within about two weeks of handing in the building usage request form, another form must be handed in as well as a deposit to rent the pool. This form is called the Swimming Pool Contract form and this form illustrates the required documents that must be turned in before the pool party.
Then, in regards to the specific details, I have a rules and rate schedule form that must be looked over in advance because this represents what is allowed and what is NOT allowed at NS pool parties while explaining the rate schedule. Normally pool parties are scheduled to last for two hours. And, we have a rate schedule where they pay per hour. We have rates for families that are in the district and we also have rates for out of district families. These rates also increase as the amount of swimmers go up.
If anyone would like to contact me in regards to having a pool party, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org (my contact info is also on the forms as well). You can do so that way - and then I will provide all the information they would need to know in order to have a pool party at NS.
