Parent Teacher Conferences

Our Fall Parent/Educator conferences are being held on Monday, November 21st from 2:30 to 7:00 PM (1:50 student dismissal) and Tuesday, November 22nd from 8:30 to 12:00 PM (no student attendance)


3 things to remember during parent teacher conferences:

1. Teacher's have your child's best interest at heart

2. A collaborative approach yields the biggest learning success.

3. Your child's ability to function in a classroom is a microcosm for them learning how to navigate the world.


3 questions to ask:

1. What do you see as my child's biggest strength?

2. What is the largest area of growth for my child by the end of the year?

3. Is there anything I can do to support you, as the teacher, and the class?


After the conference:

Reflect on what was discussed, and have a follow up conference with your child.


A piece of advice:

You know you child the best... Share it. Celebrate it. Advocate for it.


If you still want to sign up, please call Ms. Sal, and she can help you find a time to meet with your student's teacher and/or therapist.

NSAE MOVE - summer 2023

Dear Bulldog Families -


I am excited to announce that the Leadership Council voted to approve the move of North Shore Academy Elementary to the Rubloff Building on the Red Oak Campus where North Shore Academy and the District Services Center are located. As mentioned in Dr. Schneider's letter, the past three years, TrueNorth has gathered input from the Leadership Council, Finance Committee, architects, a construction management firm, TrueNorth and member district staff, and district attorneys to create a plan for construction implementation to most efficiently and flexibly use the Red Oak campus immediately and into the future. We are thrilled that the plan includes a new space for NSAE students that will more suitably meet their needs.


NSAE has been leasing its current building for years. The landlord at the Northbrook location of North Shore Academy Elementary has asked TrueNorth to vacate the space in the summer of 2023 so it can be used for a different purpose. This means NSAE will need to relocate after Extended School Year (ESY) in July of 2023.


Because of this information, TrueNorth has decided to make modifications and changes to its current buildings on the Red Oak campus to prepare for the NSAE students. This is great for us because it allows for us to be closer to the rest of our TrueNorth staff and students. Additionally, this provides our NSAE students with more access to the older students who come over for reading buddies. We can expand our connections with the NSA students and staff. The possibilities will be endless once the distance has been removed. Furthermore, the facility options on the TrueNorth Campus include a more accessible playground space, gym, and learning spaces with more amenities.


While I am sure that this is both exciting and creates a little anxiety, as all change does, please know that I will be in contact along the way to provide up to date information as I receive it. I will add a section to my weekly Bulldog Bulletin dedicated to the “NSAE Move.” In this section, I will communicate you with the most updated information I have as a way to ease the anxiety of the transition as I know change is hard. I will host a principal coffee and tour of the Rubloff Building with information about construction plans, new space amenities, and other details. I will communicate a timeline with the hosted events in the near future.


This move is a huge win and opportunity for NSAE. We will be able to make the space ours and incorporate NSAE culture into the building. With any new construction, it is exciting for our whole NSAE family! I look forward to sharing this journey with you!
