Adopt-A-Classroom & Angel Tree

Adopt-A-Classroom and Angel Tree - Palomino Intermediate School

This is the second year that North Phoenix Prep will be sponsoring the students of Palomino Intermediate School in Paradise Valley. The Adopt-A-Classroom and Angel Tree are unique programs that connect greathearted individuals or groups with deserving elementary school students. 

You can help in two ways:
  1. Pick a "stocking" off the board in the front office and sponsor a child individually. 
  2. Contribute to your student's homeroom class (1st Period) fund (cash donations only, please).
The Adopt-A-Classroom and Angel Tree programs will run from November 30-December 9.

Lost & Found Last Chance

We will be donating all items left in the lost and found during our Thanksgiving Break. Please remind your child to check the lost and found for any items they are missing.

Jordan Black Wins MS Cross Country Championship

Coach Trevino had this to say about the MS Cross Country year in review:
NPX XC was more than thrilled to have Jordan Black return to action for the Gladiator runners this season as he and a number of other boys became NPX’s first full middle school boys team for cross-country. And what a first team it was!
With Jordan leading the team, NPX XC boys took home the runner-up trophy at the championship meet, and, in dramatic as well as unexpected fashion, after making a meteoric charge in the last half-mile of the championship race, Jordan passed both the second and first place runners up to that point to become NPX XC first individual champion runner. Jordan’s years of running and hard work have paid off for himself and NPX. And boys cross-country is set to bring home the championship trophy next year. Congratulations, Jordan and XC boys!
