Port Huron Northern will be officially opening its doors to the community at large to show its updates from the bond work on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.
Students have been attending the school since the beginning of the 2018-19 school year, but this will be the first opportunity for the public to get a glimpse of the updates from funding with the 2016 “Building Tomorrow, Today” bond passage.

One of the highlights of the event will be the ribbon cutting at 6:30 p.m. for the new P.J. Wallbank Springs, Inc. Engineering STEAM Lab at PHN. This is part of a new business/education partnership the district has formed exclusively with P.J. Wallbank Springs, Inc. a locally-based global technology, design and manufacturing company. Student tours of the new sites throughout the high school will take place after the ribbon cutting. Some highlight locations in addition to the new STEAM lab include new safe and secure entrances, art rooms, student commons, competition gymnasium, the new science suite and the updated standard for classrooms throughout the building.

The event is also scheduled to include a proclamation from the City of Port Huron. Port Huron Schools has hosted all of its bond ribbon cuttings in partnership with the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce.

“With all of our bond related Open Houses, we wanted the community as a whole to be aware of the new education experience, environments and programming our district is offering,” explained Superintendent of Port Huron Schools Jamie Cain. “With our new partnership with P.J. Wallbank Springs, Inc. it is especially important to us that the business leaders in our region and the parents of our students are aware of the steps we are taking in developing innovative opportunities to educate Port Huron Schools students with a connection to real world and local relevance. Together, we can support each other’s needs and build a stronger workforce in this community.”
