North Side News

August 20th - 24th

Exciting Day for North Side on Monday.......

Monday is our first day of preschool! North Side has not had preschool since the 2010-2011 school year. A big thanks to Casey Craft, Susan Hosford, Jane Hilterbrand, Dean Trumbull and Ralph Helmkamp for getting everything ready and into place for this special time.

TUESDAY IS PICTURE DAY!!!!! Refer to Jane's e-mail for the schedule. Pictures will be taken in the MakerSpace room.

What is happening at North Side.......

As I visited classrooms this week, I saw engaged students and passionate teachers and staff. Also, classes are starting to visit the Maker Space room. Mrs. Weldon's class did some coding and tried out their codes. Chelsey and Deaneen are working on a creative name for the room. here are a few options:

1. iCat (Innovate/imagine, create and tinker)

2. Wildcat Time (Wonder, Innovate/imagine, learn, discover, create and tinker)

What is your preference? or do you have a different idea? Please reach out to the three of us and share.


Purposeful Play is taking place in classrooms. Students are enjoying games and activities while learning how to socially work with others in a productive society.


Continue to INSPIRE, ENGAGE, and EMPOWER our students!!!!
