Principal's Message

Dear Noddin Community,

Earlier this week, we wrapped up our 2021 - 22 Noddin Back To School Donation Drive. With the uncertainty of school fundraisers, this was a big focus this year. The final numbers and corporate matches are still coming in, but preliminary data show a very generous amount that will strongly support Noddin programs and staff. The teachers, classified staff, and I thank you very much and we know how truly blessed we are to serve in this community!

Just below this message, please find a link to the Noddin Elementary School Site Council elections ballot. School Site Council (SSC) is an oversight and stakeholder input group, made up of parent and faculty representatives. This group will review and provide input/feedback on school plans centered around student safety, achievement, and campus climate. Please take a few minutes to read our parent bios. and vote for up to four representatives.

Have you signed your student up for free, weekly COVID testing? If interested, you can still opt-in, using the information (flyer or website) further below. Noddin's testing day are Tuesdays and we test here on-site in the cafeteria.

Campus Accessibility Reminder

Since reopening after campus closures, reminders of protocols are sometimes needed.

This is a reminder that the Noddin Elementary campus is closed to the public until 4pm, Monday - Friday, as staff are still working on school grounds and we have programs and activities that run until this time.
