The Vikings have had an impressive season, 12-5 overall and 10-0 in the City League North leading to this Wednesday’s match up against the 14-4 (12-0) Columbus Africentric Nubians for the City League Championship. Let’s get out and show some support for the Lady Vikes!

The October 1 Homecoming game & festivities date has been changed due to a lack of officials across the state.
A Friday night football game on September 10th was cancelled due to Covid. We hope Viking students, teachers and staff can have a fairly normal school year in 2021-22.
We have arranged for the alumni from the classes of 1970 and 1971 to be recognized at this year’s Alumni game, on the field at the end of the first quarter. Stop by our table near the tennis courts on game day between 6:00pm & 7:00pm for more details.

Have you had a big change during Covid that led to a happy ending? When my office closed in March 2020, we all thought we’d be back in a few months, even though the intent was just two weeks! Little did we know that many coworkers would be off for much longer. As it turned out, the office never did reopen. The building was put on the market and sold within 6 weeks in April 2021. The lemonade? It sold quickly and everyone now works remotely!
The mass office clean-out brought a stroke of good luck…lemonade for Northland this time. Dealing with educational resources for grades K-12, the company had hundreds of books to clear out in warp-speed fashion! Many texts and popular trade books for high school found a new home at Northland. The librarian, Mrs. Jean Trimble, handily divided the books up so that they would service a few different needs at NHS! Finding that new home for over 200 books was a win-win! See Mrs. Trimble’s letter and photo below.
Hello Mrs. Spinosi,
Thank you for your generous book donation to Northland High School. I went through all of the books and separated them into areas where I thought they could be used most effectively.
– 6 dictionaries and 1 thesaurus were added to the class sets of dictionaries used in the library
– 31 books (some with corresponding Teacher Guides) were separated for teacher use. Teachers were emailed and encouraged to check them out over the summer. One teacher has already taken advantage of this opportunity!
– 75 books were reserved for giveaways either by PBIS or other clubs. These are books already in the library collection or one of multiple copies donated. Five have already been given away.
– 110 books will be added to the library collection!
Again, your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated!
Another successful NHSAF Golf Outing is in the books. Sixteen teams hit the links at Chapel Hill this past Saturday with Team Wiederman taking 1st place, Team Welsh taking 2nd place and Team Lundy coming in 3rd. We would like to thank all of our golfers, hole sponsors and a special thank you to Alum Pam (Jones) Zeirott for planning and organizing another great event.

Our 7th annual NHSAF Alumni Golf Outing is less than 2 months away, happening on Saturday, June 26th at Chapel Hill GC. Reach out to your classmates, friends and neighbors and put together a foursome. Due to the Covid situation we will maintain a more basic golf outing similar to last year, without a dinner or raffle prizes. Proceeds will go to support programs for the students at NHS. We appreciate all of our golfers and hole sponsors. Click the link below for our event flyer.
