November Already?!

October has been a month full of hard work and fun at Northside Elementary! Although October is one of the longest months of the year, it always goes quickly. We celebrated Red Ribbon Week and spent the final full week of the month discussing the negative effects of drugs and alcohol.

Northside teachers and staff continue to work diligently to engage students in learning and model positive character and integrity. Please thank them for what they do!

Yesterday we celebrated our Treat Walk Monthly Reward! This was an opportunity to reward positive behavior in our school and recognize the efforts of staff and students. Staff and students have earned over 150 R.O.A.R. tickets this month for being Respectful, Openly Caring, Always Safe, and Read to learn! We have received over 260 R.O.A.R. tickets this school year!

Please let us know how we are doing. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Counselor's Corner - Mrs. Pascale

Northside students participated in Red Ribbon Week during the month of October, which promotes drug awareness and healthy living. Did you know that “children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don’t?” At Northside, students took a pledge to be drug free and make healthy decisions for their body. The National Red Ribbon Campaign has created a pledge for parents to encourage healthy behaviors for their children:

  1. As parents and citizens, we will talk to our children and the children in our lives about the dangers of drug abuse.
  2. We will set clear rules for our children about not using drugs.
  3. We will set a good example for our children by not using illegal drugs or medicine without a prescription.
  4. We will monitor our children's behavior and enforce appropriate consequences, so that our rules are respected.
  5. We will encourage family and friends to follow the same guidelines to keep children safe from substance abuse.
