Key Club Winter Angel Tree

The Key Club of Northside High School has decorated a Winter Angel tree in the front office again this year. Each ornament has the coat size of an adult or child living in a shelter somewhere in Onslow County this season. Requests for coats, hats, gloves, and scarfs are included. Please consider sponsoring an Angel from our tree, and making someone's holiday warm and bright this year! Donations are due to the front office by December 16th at 2:00pm.


Freshman and junior AVID students took a trip to Campbell University to tour the campus, to learn about what programs are offered and to find out more about the admissions process.

Social Worker


Meet Ms. Renee Jones, School Social Worker with Onslow County Schools. She serves Jacksonville Commons Elementary School, Jacksonville Commons Middle School and Northside High School. School Social Workers are trained mental health professionals with a degree in social work who provide services related to students’ social, emotional, and life adjustment to school and society. We are licensed by the Department of Public Instruction to work in the school environment. One of the primary roles of a School Social Worker is to provide outreach services to the homes; thus establishing a relationship between the home and school and serving as a link between the two, working with parents, guardians, teachers, and other school officials to ensure students reach their academic and personal potential. We analyze barriers to learning and achievement and develop and implement strategies to address and eliminate identified barriers to student learning. School Social Workers focus on consultation and collaboration with school staff to promote understanding and effective utilization of resources and services. School Social Workers help students increase academic success, improve interpersonal relationships, cope with crisis situations, learn problem-solving skills, improve attendance and build self-esteem. Jacksonville Commons Elementary is Ms. Jones base school.

Should you need her services, please do not hesitate to contact her at JCE.
