Little Reminder

Coach Hagedorn would like to remind families that the students need to please wear or bring tennis shoes for PE on their assigned days. Without tennis shoes they may not be able to participate in activities.

i-Ready

i-Ready log in's have been sent home. This gives your child the opportunity to practice their math skills at home. If you are needing another log in please contact your child's teacher.

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 forth their best effort, being responsible and respectful. As we return to school, we will review lessons to remind students of the expectations!

Dissmial-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 with loading, but occasionally someone slips through. We want all children placed in cars quickly and safely.


Please do not get out of your cars to walk students to the door while in the valet line in the morning! This slows traffic down. You are welcome to walk your child to the door or into the building, but please use the parking lot south of the school to park and walk them to the school. Thank you!

Smart Snacks

Click on the Smart Snacks button in order to view a list of healthy snacks to send with your child.

WINTER COATS, HATS, GLOVES, ETC.

Please write your child's name or initials on the tag or their winter coat, hats, gloves, etc. It is getting cold and we need these items for recess and dismissal but sometimes we have matching coats, hats, and gloves and it makes knowing what goes to who very hard.


Thanks for everything you do at home!
