Attention High Schoolers!

Northfield wants to hear from you!

This year there are over 45 open Youth Positions all around the city:

Mayor’s Youth Council, Planning Commission, Arts and Culture Commission, Environmental Quality Commission, Library Board, YMCA Board of Directors, and many more.

If you want more information on what this means and how to get involved, talk to Paul W., Leander, and Logan who are all part of the program.

Applications are on Kim’s desk or found online at:

 www.northfieldyouth.org/apply. The deadline is April 18th.


An  Arcadia Breakfast fundraiser in being held next Sunday, April 15th from 8:00a.m – 12:00p.m. at the VFW in Northfield.  The money raised is being raised in support of May Term.  There is still a need for students willing to sell tickets and a need for students to work at the event.  See Gary if you are willing to help.  Reminder that each shift a student works reduces their May Term cost by $10.

Students and Parents, please take a moment to complete the following Greenhouse survey.  The results will help us determine what to plant this year.  Thanks.

Attention all students! MCA Testing  will continue until Thursday April 26th. This means two things:

  1. Return all Chromebooks to where they belong and plug them in EVERY day, especially the black classroom Chromebooks. We will be using those to test with in the morning, so they need to be ready, charged, and in good shape every day.
  2. For people in the advisories, please DO NOT stream video or music on Youtube, Spotify, or other streaming media services over the school WiFi for the next 3 weeks, especially during the first 3 periods of the day. We need to make sure the internet is working smoothly and consistently for all the students testing, since the MCA program is connected to the internet. If you are eating up our limited bandwidth, it means students might have to make up tests later or have their testing programs go super slow. Please be considerate of testing students and do not be a bandwidth hog!
