Welcome Back Northside Families

Northside Families,

I am happy and excited to welcome you back to the new school year. Northside School and the district are experiencing some exciting changes. We have adopted a new leadership model, which provided me an opportunity to move from the role of teacher, into a leadership role for the district. With primary responsibilities at Northside, I am honored to serve this school and community and am committed to building a strong partnership between the two.

Northside is an exceptional school.  We have an exceptional staff who are dedicated to providing a rigorous, engaging and relevant education for ALL students. Our staff values growing professionally, as can be demonstrated in our continued use of NED Days, summer teaching academies and Friday early release for staff articulation.  Newly adopted curriculum in both language arts and math, as well as our educational field trips, Garden of Learning, Makerspace and STEAM projects all support our vision of preparing a well-rounded student for the 21st Century.  

Northside has exceptional students.  Our students thrive in an environment that promotes their contribution to the learning community. Northside students participate in school service through our Rocky’s Rangers program (formally Cool Congress).  They tend to and harvest food for the school lunch program and Harvest Meal.  Our students are held to high behavior expectations which are taught through our “PAWS” Positive Behavior Intervention and Support model.  Promoting and recognizing those PAWS behaviors are at the heart of our student recognition program.  

Northside is supported by an exceptional community.  We would not be successful without the partnership we have formed with our parents and the community.  Northside PTA works tirelessly to financially support special programs that enrich our school. Please think about joining the PTA this fall during our membership drive.  I can’t stress enough the importance of a strong parent-school partnership.  We are all invested in the benefits of nurturing this connection. Northside School is truly the heart of Cool.  

I am proud to be able to work with such an amazing and dedicated staff.  Everyone at Northside School is committed to providing the best possible education for our students. I look forward to getting to know all my Northside families as we kick off the new school year.  Please remember my door is always open.
