North Phoenix Parents' Group (NPPG) hosts a family event almost every month for our members. Annual membership dues are only $40 and usually covers the cost of food, beverages, arts & crafts, entertainment, admission fees, etc. at our events unless otherwise noted. Below is a tentative calendar of events for 2019. Events, timing, and details are subject to change.

NPPG will be providing heavy appetizers. Drinks to be purchased on individual tabs.
Sky Zone: February - Toddler Time is a great shared experience for child and parent. A time for your little ones to discover the joy of being active, bouncing under the supervision of their parents, and without interference from the big kids. NPPG will pay for admission, Sky socks and donuts for all our members. This event is sponsored by Sky Zone Phoenix.
