Resources for Parents

Get involved!

Parents, your support and commitment are essential in providing a positive environment for our students. The North Salem High School administration and staff encourage you to become part of the Viking community. Your participation is invited in any of the following:

Band Boosters: This devoted parent group is actively involved in fundraising activities that make competitive trips, purchase of uniforms and equipment, and other special projects possible.

Senior Party Planning Committee: Parents and students comprise this group of volunteers that plan and fundraise for the graduation party for the Class of 2021. If you would like to help us create a memorable celebration for our Viking seniors and would like to help establish a committee for the Class of 2021, please email Adrian Rodriguez or Sarah Cowan.

Of course at this time, it is too early to know if students can gather together to celebrate in June of 2021. However, there are celebrations that can continue virtually and creative way to express how proud we are of this group of Viking seniors. Let’s put our heads and hearts together and make the graduation celebration for the Class of 2021 a memorable event!

Viking Family Night: North Salem High School is committed to educating parents about how to help prepare their students academically for graduation, and the college and career process.  Join us once a month for Viking Family Night hosted in the North Salem High School library from 6-7:30 p.m. These meetings will consist of several information sessions with resources to help our students be successful in their college or career path. For more information, please contact College and Career Specialist, Linda Hernandez Munguia in Room 110.

Volunteer: Volunteers and community partners play an important role in Salem-Keizer Public Schools. Every day in every school, volunteers support and encourage staff and students, and take an active role in helping every student achieve. Through their contributions of time, energy, inspiration and expertise, volunteers often report they receive more than they give. Anyone may apply to become a volunteer. Before taking part in a volunteer activity, applicants must complete a criminal history check. Use the link above to submit an online volunteer form.
