With Thanksgiving and Winter break, the second marking seemed to fly by, and it’s hard to believe we are already halfway through the school year! Nevertheless, there were plenty of headline (and history) making events that occurred throughout North Penn during the last two and a half months. Here are some more reasons why we love North Penn.

 

Boys’ Soccer State Championship-November 15th

In Hershey, PA back in November, the Boys’ Soccer Team won their first state title in North Penn history. The #1 seed Knights beat the 23rd seed Central Bucks West Bucks 2-0 to capture the PIAA 4A state trophy. Sports editor Prasham Jobanputra traveled to Hershey with the team, and you can read more about the game here and see a photo story of game day here. 

 

Once Upon A Time-November 21st-24th

Before Thanksgiving break, NPHS Theatre and Thespian Troupe #5464 presented the 2019 fall play, Once Upon A Time. The play was a collection of short stories from countries and cultures all around the world, from Africa to Iceland to the Middle East.

 

Three New Board Members Sworn in-December 12th

In mid-December, the North Penn School Board swore in three new members, following the results of the 2019 off-year election. Dr. Wanda Lewis-Campbell and Mrs. Cathy Wesley were sworn in for four year terms, and Mr. Al Roesch was sworn in for a two year term. Read more about it here, and for more info about the School Board, see here.

 

Winter Concert-December 18th

Just before winter break, the annual winter concert was held in the NPHS Auditorium. Band, Orchestra, CMT, and Chorus all had the opportunity to show off their talents to a packed house. The highlight of the night was one of North Penn’s most popular traditions-alumni joining the chorus for a rendition of “Hallelujah Chorus” in a grand finale.

 

Mock Convention-January 3rd

Every 4 years since 1976, NPHS has held a Mock Convention, meant to simulate the actual Democratic or Republican National Convention that takes place later in the year. This year, students debated hot button issues such as immigration and drug policies, caucused within their respective “states or territiories,” and cast their ballots. With an overwhelming majority of the votes, Andrew Yang gained North Penn High School’s nomination. Read more about the convention here, and check out the photo story here.

 

Winter Ball-January 4th

Winter Ball, the largest dance held each year at North Penn High School, took place on January 4th. Over 1,300 students showed up to dance the night away!
