Summer Band Lessons.jpg
Summer Band Lessons Grant

The PBF proudly supports the Northern Music Departments and awarded a grant to assist with elementary and middle school students summer band lessons.  Over 50 students participated in this year's summer lessons program.  We look forward to enjoying everyone's talent during the upcoming musical events!

Musical receives NOW Grant

The PBF is proud to support Northern High School's first Digitally Streamed musical - Disney's "Beauty and the Beast"

The Northern stage looked different from years past with a newly resurfaced stage, limited sets, animated projections, and a cast that did its best to socially distance and learn choreography that was as COVID friendly as possible! 


Friends and family from far and near watched the shows without leaving their living rooms! 

The PBF was proud to support the special makeup, lights, and other equipment to support this unique production.

Hooray, we made it halfway!

Let's face it - this school year has been challenging.


The PBF wanted our students and teachers to know that WE SEE THEIR GOOD WORK. PBF volunteers, including PBF Student Representative Makenna Landis, decorated all six school lobbies to celebrate the start of the 2nd semester.

Making the best of 2020 - 2021

On the night before the first day of school PBF volunteers quietly delivered signs of encouragement and unity to each of our school buildings, administration office, and even on the square downtown!


We hope they serve as a source of joy and inspiration.​

Reaching Toward the Future

$1.4 million state grant nudges the

Turf Field Project toward the goal line.

The Polar Bear Foundation is proud to share the good news of the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Project (RACP) grant awarded to the school district. 

The matching grant from the RACP, must now be combined with additional local donations through the PBF, to move the District one step closer to installing the first artificial turf athletic field as well as needed improvements to Bostic Field.  LEARN MORE
