Abigail Plankey, Online Editor

Student Council: Please join us in the Homecoming celebrations by dressing up, participating in pep rallies, dunking your favorite teacher in the dunk tank, attending the football game, and of course ending the amazing week with the Homecoming dance.  Dress up days throughout the week include:  Tuesday is Disney World Day- dress up as your favorite character or tourist, Wednesday-Country Club Day, Thursday is USA Day, and Friday is School Colors Day.  We will have a pep rally on Monday during Homeroom to kick off the week and have a final pep rally on Friday with lots of games, class banner parade, and 2015 Homecoming Court.  Be sure to cheer on the Lightning football team as they face off against Wausau East, with fireworks to follow.  Finally, Student Council will be organizing and decorating for the Homecoming Dance on Saturday, October 10th.  This year’s theme is Passport to Homecoming and runs from 8pm-midnight.  Tickets will be on sale starting October 5th during all lunch hours.  Tickets are $13 in advance and $15 at the door.  Make sure to bring a school ID to the dance in order to get in.  Any student without a North ID will need to have a guest pass.  Let’s make this week one to remember! 

Hey Bowlers: Thursday, October 8th there will be a team meeting at 6:30 pm in the Bud Room at Super Bowl. All parents and student athletes on the bowling team should attend.

Improvedy: Are you Funny?  Do you like to make people laugh?  Do you enjoy putting pencils up your nose and barking like a walrus?  Then you should audition for IMPROVEDY North’s own popular comedy improvisational troupe!  Auditions will be held  today, Tuesday, October 6th from 6:30 to 8:30 in the L.G.I. You only need to attend one of the 2 days.    Any North student grades 9-12 can try out.  No improv experience is necessary—just a desire to do ridiculous and outrageous things in front of  hundreds of complete strangers—and have more fun than a barrel of monkeys—without the mess or the bananas.  So come to the L.G.I. on October 5th or 6th  at 6:30 and audition for IMPROVEDY.  If you have any questions, see Mr. Parker in Room 1118.  If you’re funny and like to have fun—we need you!  See you there!
