NMS Mock E-Learning Day

In preparation for the possibility of an e-learning day if we have a sixth snow day, Northside will have a mock e-learning day on Tuesday, December 8th. This is one week from tomorrow. At the end of school on December 8th, students will take their Chromebook home and be expected to complete a survey, do their homework, and return on December 9th with a fully charged Chromebook. We will send more details in the December 7th parent e-mail.

Northside will be participating in the annual food drive for Love Chapel, beginning December 7th-18th. Teams will be competing for the highest donation amount. The winning lunch group will enjoy a "lunch with electronics" on Wednesday January 6th!
