Principal's Message

Dear Noddin Community,

It's been a great last two weeks here on campus!

As always, Halloween was a blast! The students looked great in their costumes, enjoyed the parade, and had so much fun participating in Halloween related activities in the classroom. And the next day, without skipping a beat, they were back ready to learn and do their best at school!

Conferences are currently underway and will continue into next week. Conferences give teachers a designated time to discuss student strengths, growth areas, and next academics and beyond. If you have questions, praise, or feedback, please never hesitate to reach out to your teacher to discuss. Open communication between school and home is key to student success!

One of my favorite days of the year will be upon us soon...Grandparent's/VIP day!! On this special day, we get to celebrate our grandparents and very important people, spend some quality time together, and learn more about each other. Please see the flyer below for more information.

Last, there's still time to register for two of Noddin's most popular before/after school programs: Winter Chorus with Mr. Hess and the Starting Arts musical - School House Rocks! Live Jr.

Mr. Hess will be accepting sign-ups through next week. You can return the permission slip and payment to the office or directly to Mr. Hess Tuesday or Thursday morning before school.

Starting Arts registration closes November 22 at 12pm and there is a minimum number of students (grades 3rd - 5th) for the show to go on!! We are close to that number, but currently need more sign-ups. If interested, please see the information below and register using the provided link. Questions: email Michelle Frank from Starting Arts at

Have a wonderful long weekend and thank a veteran!

Mr. Scharer

Family Yoga Event

Noddin's yoga instructor, Nelly Kavaldjieva, is now accepting sign-ups for a family yoga event, "Let's Be Kids Together." This program empowers all of us, kids and adults, to learn simple techniques that help us be in control of our thought, emotions, and energy. Also, when we practice these teachings as a family, it has even stronger impact.

The theme will be to celebrate the season of gratitude together with our loved ones and with the community as a whole in a very playful and joyful way. No yoga experience is needed to participate - everybody is welcome. Here is the link with the information: The event can also be accessed through the website

Crossing Guards

Noddin Elementary currently has a need for Crossing Guards. Please see the information below. If interested, please contact Mrs. Golab or Mr. Scharer in the office.

Even if you're not able to commit to every day, every shift, we're still interested in hearing from you!
