Northwood High School PTSA Updates!


Final Updates
about NHS Timberwolf 5K Run/Walk
on Saturday, February 13
 

  • Registration packets can be picked up Thursday, February 11, after school, from 1:00 - 8:00 PM, in front of the gym. Can't make it? Arrange for a friend to pick it up for you.  
  • Remember to bring a food donation for Families Forward.
  • Why not make it a 5k+ and walk or ride your bike to the race? 
  • Parking will be limited. If you want to park on NHS grounds, plan to be at school before 7:30 AM. The Yale/Portola gate will close at 7:30 AM or when the NHS lots are full, whichever is earlier.
  • Overflow parking (mandatory at 7:30 AM and later) is at Canyon View Elementary and the Chinese Baptist Church on Arborwood and Yale, one block south of the main entrance.
  • Run with your Timberwolf friends. Make a plan now where you will meet on Saturday morning. 
  • Remember, the 5k starts promptly at 8:00 AM. Don't miss the National Anthem, sung by our own Zack Halop, at 7:50 AM.
  • Your race registration automatically enters you into the raffle! Don't miss the great gifts our Northwood area businesses have donated.
    Enjoy the food, fun and prizes in the gym.
  • Invite your friends and family to run/walk the race with us. Last year the race earned more than $50,000 for Northwood Athletics and supported Families Forward.  Register today at www.timberwolf5k.com. See the flyer for details.
  • Thank you for supporting Northwood High School!
