Announcements & Upcoming Events
National HIstory Day
It's History Day season once again! The following students placed at the Regional History Day Competition, and will now revise their research projects to compete at the State Competition in the next month. It's practically a tradition now that West Valley dominates the Regional and State competitions. This year, North Pole HS really showed up with some fine projects and gave us some serious competition. Hopefully, NPHS and WVHS projects will dominate the State contest and make another proud showing at the National Competition in June.
Congratulate the following students for their impressive work seeing through a long term research project that they began in September and they'll continue to revise for State and hopefully Nationals.
