  • What if you were performing on stage, but could not be seen?
  • What if you were singing, but could not be heard?
  • What if you had talent to share, but had no place to let it shine?

When North High School opened in 1972, the auditorium held many state-of-the-art features. Today, those features are severely outdated. The lighting system is woefully inadequate. The seats are worn. The carpet is tattered. The stage and auditorium are in serious need of repair.
 

The NAA, in collaboration with the Sioux City Community School District, plans to do the following:

  • Install new theatre, stage and aisle lighting 
     
  • Install new audience seats 
     
  • Provide additional handicap accessible seating 
     
  • Repair and paint the stage, walls and ceiling
     
  • Install new floor and wall carpeting 
     
  • Provide sound system for hearing impaired guests
 

THESE CRITICAL RENOVATIONS WILL COST ABOUT $375,000.

Studies have shown that involvement in the Fine Arts helps students increase test scores and promotes academic excellence. We want more of our students in the fine arts because students who are involved in the fine arts are:

  • 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement
  • 3 times more likely to be elected to class office within their schools
  • 4 times more likely to participate in a math and science fair
  • 3 times more likely to win an award for school attendance

Supporting Fine Arts is critical to the success of our students. The Sioux City Community School District has already paid nearly $100,000 for some auditorium renovations. Unfortunately, severe budget constraints prevent them from completing all of the necessary work. By making a donation for this project, you will help to:

  • Expand and support the extraordinary drama, vocal and instrumental programs at North High School
  • Encourage greater student participation in Fine Arts
  • Improve classroom performance through student participation
  • Instill a sense of pride in our students and our entire northside community
  • Increase usage of the auditorium by northside middle and grade school students, and generate income by having more events in the auditorium

Your help will ensure that current and future North High School STARS can shine each time they use the auditorium!

 
 

 

 
 

At North High, there is a saying, "They call us STARS for a reason!"

 

North High School students take this statement seriously and they deserve our full support for all their Fine Arts and Athletic Activities. Our students' accomplishments include:

  • Academic National Merit Scholars
  • Award winning jazz and marching band
  • Countless service projects for the community
  • Iowa Top 50 Ranking Advanced Placement Index
  • State baseball and basketball champions
  • State recognized poetry writers and artists
  • Traveling Cup of Iowa honoree for student athlete academic success
  • 20 excellent athletic teams and more than 20 fun and exciting activities, clubs, organizations

"It's a shame that our students don't have an attractive, functional venue in which to showcase their artistic talent. They deserve so much better. I look forward to future performances, orientations, and functions in a beautiful new auditorium that will make our students, staff and the entire northside community proud!" Linda Smoley, Former Principal
