Northpointe Newsflash

November 29- December 3, 2021

Northpointe Intermediate School

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break. I loved being able to spend much needed time with extended family, but am looking forward to seeing my NIS family tomorrow!


This week we will be focusing on the Great Expectations Life Principle of Fortitude: strength of mind that enables a person to encounter danger or bear pain or adversity with courage. Below is a guide for discussing Fortitude with your student this week.

  1. What are some situations where you need to have fortitude?
  2. Are there times when it’s tough to have fortitude?
  3. How can you help others have fortitude?

"Deck the Trails" 2.5 Mile Fun Run

If you were not able to turn in your registration for our "Deck the Trails" 2.5 Mile Fun run this coming weekend, there's still time! Registration is still available for $40.


A special shoutout to our sponsors- Hanigan Johnson Orthodontics, Pain Train Salsa, Aloha Nails, and HEB!


Sign up for our 2nd Annual "Deck the Trails" 2.5 Mile Fun Run on December 4th! Registration forms are available online.

Counselor Corner: Mrs. Diaz-Vela

EXCEL: Help your child make goals to manage long-term assignments. Ask: What can you do this week? Next week? Is this enough time to finish?


GenTX Week: Students learned throughout the week the different types of schools (safe and reach), the difference between trade schools, colleges, and a four-year university, among many other related topics to this week. They were encouraged by the teachers to start thinking about their future today because their actions lead down a path! Take a look at what at our staff Wildcat College Yearbook and our amazing students’ pennants.

Car Rider Line Reminders

Thank you all for your patience and flexibility as we have worked through car rider line logistics! Please remember that when you exit the car rider line, you can not turn left. You must turn right onto Northpointe Blvd. If you turn left, it becomes a safety hazard and can also impede the flow of traffic exiting and entering the car rider line. We appreciate your help with this!

Reminder: Student Dress Code

A reminder to all of our Wildcat Parents and Students:

- All students must wear clothing that adequately covers the body. Shorts and/or skirts must reach the mid-thigh. Spaghetti straps, strapless, backless, see-through and low-cut tops are not allowed. Tops must cover the midriff.

- Student hair must be that of natural color. Students that need to address this particular portion can meet with their Assistant Principal to discuss a solution and timeline.


All dress code policies can be found in the TISD Student Handbook linked HERE.
