Dress Down Day
Students and teachers enjoy several opportunities each year to raise funds for the student government through dress-down days. Several of these have school-wide themes such as Class Colors Day, Western Dress Down Day, Team Spirit Day and Wacky Tacky Day. Participation is optional.
Each November, students take part in NorthBay’s annual Field Day events. This popular family event always brings healthy competition, team spirit, and many laughs. Student events include a relay race, 50-yard dash, softball throw, standing long jump and many others. After a picnic lunch, the final event of the day is the very popular tug-o-war.
Annual School Wide Picnics
Twice each year, the entire NorthBay family convenes at Philippe Park in Safety Harbor for school-wide family picnics. There is always food, fellowship and fun at the Back-to-School Picnic in August and the Thanksgiving Feast in November.
Student Government Service Days
Several times each school year, the members of the NorthBay student government participate in service days to benefit the community. Previous service days have benefited the Tampa Children’s Cancer Center, the Humane Society of North Pinellas, and a local nursing home.
Middle School Drama Production
Each year, the upper-grade students entertain their peers, parents, and friends with a class production in which they all participate. Previous performances have included, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,” “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” and “Alice in Wonderland.”
In the spring, the Student Government sponsors Spirit Week and the whole school gets to participate. Past Spirit Days have included Knight & Princess Day, Switcheroo Day, Stripe & Dot Day, and School Colors Day.
Student Government Elections
Each April, the students exercise their right to vote for their student government leaders. Students in grades 6-8 have the opportunity to run for the office of President, Vice President, Secretary or Treasurer. Additionally, students in grades 2-8 elect a class representative from each grade to make up the rest of the government body.
National Day of Prayer
In May, the entire student body – teachers, administrators, and parents – participate in a student-led assembly to honor the National Day of Prayer. Each class participates with songs, patriotic recitations, and prayers for our local, state, and national leaders.
Annual Variety Show
On the evening of the last Friday of the school year, the entire community comes together to enjoy the many talents of our NorthBay family. With acts including music, comedy, dance, puppets, and skits, it truly is a variety show!
