Worcester Railers tickets for the NGES/NSS October 20th game (puck drop at 7:05 pm) are now available online! We were able to get a great group rate of just $16 (a $41 value) plus a free hat that will be delivered to your student at school! The PTG will also be selling chuck-a-pucks during the game to raise money for NSS and NGES! Hope to see you there! https://railers.isportstix.com/order/group/NGPTG

Volunteers Needed! We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help us with the chuck-a-puck fundraiser at the Railers game this Saturday! Anyone volunteering gets early admission (feel free to bring kids but we will need names for admission passes), and the opportunity to participate in the player high-five before the puck drop!

PTG Meeting at NSS tonight, 9/5/2018!

We are so excited about the 2018-19 school year and all that we have planned in the PTG!  We are hoping to see you at the first (and shortest) PTG meeting of the year! In a quick, half hour meeting after KYSN at North Street School from 7:30-8, we are going to accomplish so much–introducing this year’s officers, getting everyone signed up on our contact list for the year for those important reminders, and forming our committees!

You will also hear some exciting announcements for the year ahead!  Light refreshments will be provided for this informal meeting! Please join us!  Also, if you haven’t already, please follow us on Facebook so that you can receive announcements and updates!
