Dear Families, Parents and Friends, August 1, 2019

Welcome Back, we missed you!!

On behalf of our entire staff, we would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! Much planning and hard work have gone into preparing for a successful school year. 

All teachers and support staff have spent hours preparing materials, creating child-centered classrooms, and reviewing data. The rooms look amazing!  Ms. Maria our secretary has registered new students, put together information packets to be sent home with all students, and organized new materials.

Additionally, I would like to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to our custodial staff. They worked diligently throughout the summer to clean and ready the school. 

We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. This year all students at North Elementary will have a student planner provided by the school. This planner will serve as a communication tool between parents/guardians and teachers. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:


1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience 

2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers 

3) Check your child’s planner for up to date information given by the teacher

4) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

5) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life 

6) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

7) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to high school or even college and become a productive citizen 


Be on the lookout for monthly school calendars with important activities happening throughout the month. Also, check out our school website for information. 

Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at North Elementary.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.

Come join us tonight (August 6th) for Meet the Teacher from 3:00-6:00 PM. 

This will be a FANTASTIC year!
