North Point had a blast at the Be Brave Hitmen game. All of the students represented North Point very well, and they even managed to get on the JumboTron a few times! Special thanks to Mrs. Kuhn, Mr. Hoy and all the other parents for keeping an eye out on the kids, these opportunities to connect outside of school and meet families are so special for North Point!
