Principal Points

Moberly’s Mission Statement:

To ensure all students have a quality education and a sense of direction.


I am so glad to see all of our little friends back at school! I missed all the smiles and hugs. We are off to a great start. Teachers and students are working hard and already making growth in so many ways.


Our PTO is an important parent organization that does a great deal to support students and staff. Please join us for our first meeting of the year on Sept. 11th at 5:30.


Thank you to each of you for the great start to the year. We all appreciate your partnership with our school to help all children succeed.

PBS

North Park is a PBiS school. What that means is that we support students with positive language and expectations. We reward students, classrooms and building for putting for their best effort, being responsible and respectful. Spartan bucks are giving to each student that can cash them in for prizes of their choosing. Classrooms keep track of compliments and other positive behaviors and have classwide rewards. We also keep track of "spartan heads" on our gumball machine and when we fill it up, we have a building wide celebration. Ask you child about the expectations and share in their success!

LIbrary News

Mr. Katcher and Mrs. Moseley are looking forward to a fun year in the library and computer lab. Mr. Katcher will be focusing on computer skills such as keyboarding and web navigation, while Mrs. Moseley will be checking out books to the students. Please remind your students to return their books on time so they may borrow new ones every week.

Title I Helpful Hints

North Park is now a schoolwide Title I school. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions regarding schoolwide Title I.

How can parents be part of a successful schoolwide Title I program?

  1. Participate in your child’s education by: attending school events, talking about your child’s homework with him or her, showing how school work is related to daily life, making an appointment to visit the classroom or volunteer, and joining the PTO or the Title I Parent Advisory Council.
  2. Be aware of your child’s performance by: attending parent teacher conferences, requesting additional meetings if needed, keeping teachers informed about events and issues that may affect your child’s work and behavior.

Who does schoolwide Title I help?

1. Title I can help:

*Students do better in school and feel better about themselves.

THANK YOU!

Thank you for voting to support our schools! So many wonderful improvements to learning spaces and support spaces took place in the spring and over the summer months. We love our new classrooms, office and collaboration areas. Also, safety issues have been addressed and satisfied with additional interior doors and ramp. We are blessed to have great community support and do not take it for granted. On behalf of all of our staff and students, THANK YOU!

Valet

Please make sure we can put your child in your vehicle on the side of the car toward the sidewalk and building please, for their safety. We try to block two way traffic which loading, but occasionally someone slips through. We want all children placed in cars quickly and safely.
