Northpointe Newsflash

September 19 - September 23, 2022

Northpointe Intermediate School

On Thursday we will be kicking off our campus fundraiser for the school year: Big Kahuna! Your students will be receiving lots of information Thursday morning, so be on the lookout for that to come home this week. This coming week, we will be focusing on the Great Expectations Life Principle of Effort: doing one's best in an endeavor.


Below is a guide for you to discuss the Life Principle of Effort with your student at home this week:


  1. Why is effort important?
  2. Is it always easy to show effort?
  3. How can you overcome your own thoughts when effort is difficult?

  • If you did not select a bus when completing annual enrollment, please contact our transportation coordinator at (281) 357-3193.

  • If your address has changed then send a proof of residence to cynthiaboedeker@tomballisd.net so she can change the address in our online system.

  • Bus information will be available in the SMART tag Parent Portal to locate bus stops and approximate pick up and drop off times.

  • InfoFinder will be available for you to enter your child’s physical address for bus information. This will be available starting August 8th. Please use this if you do not find your bus information in the SMART tag Parent Portal.

  • If no bus has been assigned in the SMART tag Parent Portal yet, please use the InfoFinder to locate your bus information.

  • If you can’t find your bus information in SMART tag Parent Portal or InfoFinder, please contact transportation. It can take up to 10 school days to add a stop location to an existing bus route.
