Camp North Elementary

Creating an Environment Where Learning is Powerful

Thank you!

Thank you faculty for all that you have done these past couple of weeks. We appreciate everyone's flexibility and willingness to step in and assist as needed. With crazy weather, altered schedules, illnesses, CBA's, and Mock STAAR everyone has earned a week away. North is such an amazing place to be and it is because of each of you. Thank you again for everything you do!!!! Michele & Danieli


As you can see from the link we will be having a grand time at North Elementary. We are scheduling this event for Memorial Day since we will be at school. We are hoping that with parents hopefully having the holiday off they will be able to join in this fun event. We will also incorporate recognizing veterans at this event as well. We are excited about this and hope that this makes this make up day enjoyable and memorable.

March Staff Learning

This month we will be doing a different set up for our faculty meeting. Staff who attended TCEA will be sharing at least one app or website that they learned and have used in their classrooms. We also have a couple presenters who did not atttend TCEA, but are utilizing an app or apps that have helped engage and excite students. We are excited for this day.

How will this look? Below is a schedule of when staff are presenting. You will choose one session per time block. You will attend a total of two sessions. Also, below are the apps or links that they will be using to present so you can start thinking about what you want to attend and learn about. We are very excited for this shared learning time.
