These amazing Northside students began a new mentor program at Northside called "Check-In/Check-Out. Students are matched with staff members in the building and create personalized goals to achieve while creating meaningful relationships. These students models of "R - Ready to Learn" for the month of January because they are always striving to improve. We are so proud of you, Landon, Mason, and Khloe!

Happy February!

The first month of 2020 came and went! We have much to look forward to in the month of February, including our PASD "One School, One Book" Family Reading Challenge, collecting canned goods for the Soup-er Bowl, and celebrating Valentine's Day! 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!

Today we celebrated our January Monthly Reward! This was an opportunity to reward positive behavior in our school and recognize the efforts of faculty and students. Staff and students participated in a “Game Day” with various board games, technology, Just Dance, and Minute-to-Win-it games!

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

-Mr. Applequist

Good Sleep Habits!

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), children between the ages of 6-12 need 9-12 hours of sleep each night. A decrease in sleep not only affects the child’s health, but their ability to learn. Here are some tips to help children maintain healthy sleep habits:

  • Establish a consistent bedtime, go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day
  • Create a calming, bedtime routine each night,
  • Keep the bedroom quiet, dark and comfortable
  • Eliminate electronics from the bedroom, including T.Vs
  • Avoid being on electronics 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime
  • Eliminate foods and drinks with caffeine
  • Make sure that your child is getting enough physical activity throughout the day
