Marching Mohawks Fundraiser

Flags are mounted on a pole that easily attaches to car windows. The flags measure 15" by 11" and the pole is 19" long.  $15 per flag, $5 goes into individual band student account.

Money must be turned in with the order. Cash or checks made payable to Northwest Band Boosters. A shipment of flags has already arrived so there is only a day wait after the order is placed for students to receive their flags.

Orders and money due no later than Wednesday, October 26, 2016, but can be turned in earlier to get the flags earlier.

You can find out more here.

ASVAB Testing

Last spring, we administered the ASVAB to 62 juniors and seniors in the tiered lecture room, and those students received very useful data in regards of career and college readiness.

We will be signing students up to take the ASVAB career exploration assessment in the near future. Our ASVAB testing date will be November 1st at 8:00 a.m.

The ASVAB Career Exploration Program is an excellent way to help our students in both ACT/College readiness and career readiness. Please keep in mind the ASVAB CEP is available to juniors and seniors only.

More information about the ASVAB will be made available soon.

Attention 11th Grade

The Ohio Department of Health mandates the immunizations necessary for students attending school in Ohio. Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine is a NEW required vaccine for 12 grade students attending Ohio schools starting in the Fall of 2016. This updated information impacts our current 11th Grade Students.

• 2 Doses of the meningococcal vaccine must be administered prior to entry to Grade 12. The recommended MCV4 minimum interval is at least 8 weeks between dose one (1) and dose two (2). If the first (1st) dose of MCV4 was administered on or after the 16th Birthday, a second (2nd) dose is not required.
