Northley Art Club meets every other week. Students will work on creating art projects for the school and community.
Students are encouraged to participate in a sport including practice sessions, scrimmages, and/or games. The PIAA requires students to obtain 1 physical per school year and to submit a “Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation” along with a baseline concussion test. If the student arrives to school late, he or she must have a doctor’s note in order to participate in a game or practice. A parent note will not be accepted in lieu of a doctor’s note.
