Once again the Northlea School Community came out to celebrate another great night of fun, excitement and prizes at Thursday’s Family Fun Night.
To all the Northlea children and parents, teachers, administrative staff, our admin team, the custodial staff, and the members of the community who have supported Family Fun Night in so many ways. Not only does this event raise money for our school, but it also helps to build the strong sense of community we have here at Northlea. We’d like to give a special thanks to all of the Class Parents for their tremendous effort and countless hours of planning and creativity. It is their handiwork — the baskets and activities — that put the “fun” in FFN, and an event like this could not happen without them. Finally, to all of the parents that have helped out in planning and running the events, selling tickets and serving food, helping to set-up and tear-down: a heartfelt thank you for taking the time out of your busy lives to make this night possible and such a great night for all Northlea children. To each and every volunteer, every guest and every participant, thank you for supporting Northlea.

Dream Room Raffle
The draw was completed last night for all of the baskets and donated items in the Dream Room. Some of the prizes are still unclaimed, and those families will be contacted over the next few days with instructions on how to collect them.
We would like to ask the winners of the All Access Passes for the Welcome Back BBQ 2013 and Family Fun Night 2014 to contact us at ac.loohcsaelhtronnull@loohcsdnaemoh with full contact details including the family name so that we can keep that information on record to issue passes for those two events next School year.
Thank you again to all class parents, Northlea families and local businesses who donated so generously to our School.
