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
  • Family Math and Literacy Nights ( Dr. Seuss and Playing with Pythagoras )
  • School Wide Harvest Meal

Letter to Kinder and T/K parents

On August 18th, 2016, the district substitute superintendent, Elizabeth Haines, met with our staff and informed us of some necessary, but temporary changes in our program to alleviate overcrowded classrooms at the high school.


In response to her request we will be welcoming to our classes on Monday August 22nd several TK students and will now be teaching a TK/K multiage class.  It is possible this could change again this year. 


We are both very comfortable teaching the TK students and multiage classes, as we have taught this type of program in the past.  While it is unfortunate to temporarily restructure our TK and K, this is the best adjustment we can make at this time.  We are flexible and we know our students and you are too!


We appreciate your ongoing support for all of our students and teachers.  We will let you know of specific details and changes at Back to School Night on Thursday, August 25th.  


Your TK/K Teachers,


Mrs. Woodall and Mrs. Duff
