The tradition of BALTO Week began at Edmond North High School in 1995. This is North’s most significant tradition and is held highly as the most exciting and meaningful work of the year! Not only is this a week full of fun and excitement, but an opportunity for our school to give back to the community. Since 1995, North has raised over $4 million dollars for BALTO recipients. We have raised money for child cancer patients, brain tumor patients, special education students, premature babies and many more worthy causes. It has been an honor for our school to be able to impact so many lives within our very own community.
BALTO Week is a week full of all sorts of exciting student-led activities. All of its events and activities are done strictly for the benefit of our recipient. Activities such as assemblies during school, night activities (dances, movie nights, etc.), Northstock (battle of the bands), sales (t-shirts, pizza, sweets, etc.), collecting money at school, and much more are all done in efforts to fundraise for our recipient. A day does not go on during this week without something planned that benefits BALTO.
