WELCOME TO THE 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR

Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,


Welcome to North Shore 10th Grade Center where we are "Creating and Cultivating a Culture of Excellence"! I hope the start of this school year finds you positive, energized, and ready to excel academically as we strive for GREATNESS!


As the Principal, I look forward to meeting and working with you this year to provide the best school experience.

At North Shore 10th Grade Center, we are committed to students of our learning-based community and work diligently to ensure they are provided with all the necessary resources and strategies to ensure a high level of social and economic achievement.

As always, your student's safety is our number one priority. We will continue to follow and implement best practices, foster relationships with local agencies and train all staff to ensure a safe and secure learning environment.

In addition to safety, our campus is dedicated to our goal of providing the best instruction for your student. To achieve this, teachers and staff will implement engaging and relevant lessons in the classroom and support the needs of all students. This year, our campus will continue to focus on your student's safety and monitor and support our teachers with Data-Driven Instruction (DDI) and conduct.

Thank you, looking forward to a great year.


Mr. Kenneth Bryant

Principal, North Shore 10th Grade Center

REPORTING DAMAGED CHROMEBOOKS

Big picture
Howdy NS10 Mustang Parent, Students, and Community,

NS10 has established a Tech Squad to help handle any problems or issues with the district Chromebooks and chargers issued to the Sophomore students. The team consists of campus staff and students from NSSH.

Sophomore students who need help or replacement of their devices or chargers are asked to complete the NS10 Tech Squad Help Desk Ticket which can be found on ClassLink. Within 48 hours, the student will be contacted by a Tech Squad member. The student needs to bring their charger with them in case the device needs to be swapped for repairs.

If you have any questions about these procedures or need further help you can contact Ms. Rogers at crogers@galenaparkisd.com or Mr. Esparza at eesparza@galenaparkisd.com.

Here is a link to the NS10 Tech Squad Help Desk Ticket - https://forms.gle/y8MD3T8JRerwdPQGA. (Please be aware that this is only for 10th-grade students at NS10).
Issues with Chromebook including screen freezing, flickering, missing OS, and other issues that are not related to user damage will be corrected by the Tech Squad or swapped out for a new device at no charge.


Chargers that are no longer working will be swapped at no charge.

See Something, Say Something

North Shore 10th Grade Campus welcomes open communication from our students, staff, family, and community members. Please report any concerns of suspicious activity to the authorities using our tip line, 832-386-1550.
