Labor Day Weekend

This upcoming weekend, as you know, is a long weekend. School will be closed next Monday, September 7, 2015. See you on Tuesday at the normal time!

School Uniforms - Update

Just a reminder: if you'd like to order more uniform attire, we ask that you call Creative Embroidery and order from them directly (and pay them directly as well). Just ask for Northview uniforms and let them know the item and size. Cost will differ slightly as you will pay sales tax on the uniforms ordered after the first of the year.


We are still working on sweater options, but Field Trip t-shirts will be available to order by the end of this week.

Church Visits and Field Trips

Please reference the church visit sheet passed out at Open House for dates. Closer to each visit, more specific information will be published via this newsletter.


We will do our best to have day-long and overnight field trip information to you one to two months in advance so that, as desired, you may plan your work schedule accordingly.

Hot Lunch

Thank you, families, for providing our lunch! Due to your help, the first six lunches are free! If you've already paid, the funds will be set aside for October. Thanks again!
