Principal's Message

Dear Noddin Community,

To all USD moms and families, I hope you are having a wonderful Mother's Day!

This week is staff appreciation week and I know our Noddin H&SC, as well as individual students and families, have lots of goodies and gifts planned for our teachers and staff. Thank you in advance for all of the love and support you show us, not just this week, but every week of the school year!

This week is our 2nd to last Walk and Roll to school day and Noddin Spirit Day! On Wednesday, May 11, students may walk or roll to school for points that can be converted into prizes. And this Friday, May 13, we have our next Noddin Spirit Day - Twin Day! Students may dress alike and be "twins" for the day!


Mr. Scharer

Open House - Save The Date! - May 18 from 6pm - 7pm; Noddin HSC Meeting

Open House is just around the corner on May 18th from 6pm - 7pm. Noddin Elementary is excited to welcome all of our families back to campus and into our classrooms as we celebrate a year of student learning and growth. Open House is a wonderful opportunity for your child to share some unique pieces of their learning.

As the event will be held indoors and to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19, mask use is highly recommended in indoor spaces and we ask that you only visit your child’s classroom.

At the conclusion of the night, a general Noddin H&SC meeting will be held in the cafeteria for a vote on the incoming board and the vote to approve the 2022 - 23 budget.
