Good Things Happening Right Now
NOW Grants were designed specifically with teachers in mind and in response to the unprecedented and ever-changing needs of this school year.
Teachers - The PBF wants to help you get you what you NEED, allow you and your students to capitalize on new OPPORTUNITIES, and grant you classroom-related WISHES!
This school year is different.
Whether in-class or online our Northern community is facing this school year with strength and resilience.

Doing Good in Difficult Times
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.
And the best part - now YOU can have one of these great Yard Signs too! Our first 200 Annual Campaign Donors will receive a Yard Sign as our THANK YOU gift. GIVE NOW
Launch Grants Awarded to 12 NHS 2020 Seniors
The PBF was proud to award 12 $500 Launch Grants directly to graduating seniors. The grants could be used for personal expenses to help the student transition to their next venture, whether it be college, trade school or entering the work force.
Thank you to our 2019-2020 Friend of the Foundation members for making these special grant awards possible!
Reaching Toward the Future
Polar Bear Foundation Athletic Fund Initiative
We are excited to support the athletic programs of our School District through the establishment of a PBF Athletic Fund. The Athletic Fund will provide donors the opportunity to direct their contributions into programs to enhance our athletic fields, equipment, supplies and opportunities.
The first major project of the Athletic Fund is to raise money for the construction of a new turf field. Please click for additional information on the Turf Field Project and donation opportunities.
