What makes the a great school experience? Staff and Student Highlights

This month we shine our spotlight on the Dynamic Duo of Bonnie Orris and Teri Petersen. These two women work all year long to make Northside a singular experience for students and families. They are the brains behind Northside Enrichment Days, Family Nights, Town Hall Meetings, Student Awards, Assemblies, Yearlong Themes and more. They put the pizzazz, sparkle and finishing touches on the big and small picture. If you or your student has ever enjoyed any of these experiences it is Bonnie and Teri to whom you can share your gratitude. We are deeply blessed.

Northside Enrichment Days

This year our school will have many opportunities for student enrichment including: Northside Enrichment Days. There are 10 Northside Enrichment Days scheduled for this year.  For example on a NED Day your student will attend two classes with a guest expert in the Arts and in the afternoon attend a STEM or VAPA assembly such as Phil Tulga or the Auburn Symphony.

That is not the only way our students can participate in enrichment. We will have sign ups for afterschool enrichment in the Winter and Spring through our GATE program, before school Music Club and during school students receive enrichment through Northside Garden classes. All this and so much more thanks to our Dream Team PTA and you! 


At Northside students have multiple choices to enrich their learning:

  • Differentiated curriculum in the classroom, focusing on rigor and relevance using  Highly Effective Teaching and Guided Language Acquisition
  • Northside Garden Learning Program with Ms. Burke
