Northside Elementary School

Welcome Back!

Welcome Northside Families!


It is hard to believe summer is over and school is starting again. I hope you all had a relaxing break. My wife, Sarah, and our daughter, Penelope, welcomed our newest addition to our family on June 8th - Josephine Brynn. It's been a wild and crazy summer ever since!


Our Northside team continued to work diligently over the summer to ensure a safe and engaging environment for our NS students. We will continue our R.O.A.R. Rules along with Fun Fridays and special Monthly Reward celebrations. We encourage students to R.O.A.R. inside of school as well as outside our school walls! There are some new incentives coming with our school-wide R.O.A.R. program, so stay tuned. Consider incorporating our R.O.A.R. rules into your home. Help us by modeling:


R – Respect

O – Openly Caring

A – Always safe

R – Ready to Learn

Important Dates

Please consider donating some of your time to our PTO. They do so many wonderful things for our students and teachers. They are always looking for help.


Please do not hesitate to call/email me if you have any questions or concerns. I truly believe that education is a collaborative effort between home and school. Parental contact is a priority of mine and I will return any email/phone call in a timely manner.


Here’s to a great year at Northside!
