Every spring, the North Platte Public Schools Foundation holds Education After Hours, a celebration of the North Platte Public Schools and their students, staff members, and alumni. 

During this festive event, we recognize our most outstanding educators, administrators and staff members — and honor the year's recipients of the NPHS Distinguished Alumni awards. This annual celebration is open to all. To purchase tickets to the upcoming event, contact the NPPSF office. Tickets are $25, or $20 for staff members of North Platte Public Schools.

On Friday, April 24, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express in North Platte, the North Platte Public Schools Foundation will be honoring our 2019 NPHS Distinguished Alumni and North Platte Public Schools 2019-2020 Teachers of the Year, Administrator of the Year and Staff Member of the Year.

This is a casual evening celebration with hors d’oevres and beverages.  All proceeds benefit NPPS Foundation programs including the Prepared to Learn fund, Education REACH grants, and NPPSF scholarships. For information on how to sponsor our event, contact the NPPSF office.
