Welcome to the Home of the Marching Vikings!
NIMPA is a non-profit organization whose purpose is:
To lend all possible moral, physical, and financial support to the instrumental music program of Northland High School, and
To cooperate and communicate with NHS administrators, Instrumental Music directors and parents, to ensure that the Instrumental Music Program is maintained at the highest possible degree of efficiency of operation.
Daily School Practice
The band rehearses during first period starting at 6:59 a.m. during marching band season. Unless there is a bus conflict (which needs to be communicated), students are expected to be prepared to begin rehearsal at this time. Students are ready to perform at 6:59 not walking in the door at 6:59.
Our Time is Halftime
Friday nights mean Halftime shows! Not only can you cheer on the marching Vikings during the games, but support them as a chaperone or in hospitality.
Each game needs a group of chaperones. Chaperones ride buses to away games, sit with the band during the games, and escort members during break times. Contact Debbie DeLisle if you are interested. Game to game commitment.
Help out with hospitality. Missy Brown and Beth Miller could use a couple extra hands distributing water, cookies, and ice pops at the third quarter break. Great way to meet all of the kids. Contact Missy Brown or Beth Miller for more information. Game to game commitment.
If you check out the Northland Music History, you'll also see that our uniforms date back to the mid 1990s. Nothing lasts forever, but with a little help from you, these uniforms can last a little longer. Contact Michelle Clayton if you can help with hemming and repairs.
If you are interested in donating to the Rick Eckler Uniform fund, please contact our treasurer, Zack Clayton.
