North Plains Elementary School is very proud of the community partners that we work with.
The Knights of Pythias is a fraternal group whose charity, benevolence and friendship supports the community and especially our school. They help ensure that all students are able to participate in all activities fully whether it is making sure they can go on field trips, have ample supplies or the equipment required for outdoor school. They also make sure that all the community's children have bicycle helmets. They have also donated an Automatic Electronic Defibrillator (AED) to the city to make sure all citizens are safe. Each year they sponsor the Pythina Students of the Year which is given to a sixth grade boy and girl who demonstrate the Pythian characteristics of friendship, charity and benevelence.
