Northport K-8 School administration, faculty, staff, parents and students participated in a very meaningful way at this year’s Relay For Life 2013! Through terrific support and dedication, the school’s Relay For Life team was able to offer a donation to the American Cancer Society that far surpassed their goal of $2,500. Northport K-8 raised $3,400, decorated luminaries and stars in honor of loved ones who succumbed to or beat cancer, decorated the school booth and walked the walk! Some of the fundraisers held at Northport K-8 School were a High Heel relay race for seventh and eighth grade boys, a “No Collar For A Dollar” event, a Valentine’s dance for students and parents, a Hat Day and Sport a Tie Day! When it comes to service to the community, Northport students always participate and have a strong desire to help those in need. Students understand that to help others makes the community powerful but also makes each individual a stronger, healthier person. Pictured is the team.
