Thank you for supporting the 2019-20 EdEx Fundraising Campaign!

Principal Turner asked us to raise $15,000 to replenish our Tiger Talks fund, which provides grants to bring various types of speakers to NNHS . We nearly met our goal. Congratulations to the Newton North Community for raising $11,000!

With these funds in prior years, Newton North students heard from speakers such as:

 

  • Thurgood Marshall scholar;
  • Poet laureate;
  • Argentinian music group;
  • Transgender speaker for freshman;
  • Artist Elli Crocker, and
  • YA author, Francisco X. Stork.
         

"Tiger Talks funds allowed me to provide my students programs that opened up new worlds to them. The students were moved by all the speakers. Meeting, listening to, and being able to ask questions and develop a relationship with people who have made a difference in the world is truly inspiring." 

Amy Worth, ELL Teacher
