Principal's Message

Dear Noddin Community,


As we enter March, we enter the "spring" period of the school year - Trimester 2 conferences and the Spring Book Fair!


Conferences will be held March 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, and 13 and on these days, there will be early dismissal at 1:05pm. The teachers and I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your student's progress!


The Spring Book Fair will be March 9 - 13 from 1pm - 3pm in the library. This is a great opportunity to purchase from a wide variety of books and support the school! Please see the flyer below.


On Tuesday, March 10, Noddin will be hosting a Parent Education Night for parents and guardians. The night runs from 6pm - 7:30pm and will feature sessions on how we teach writing at Noddin/USD and how to support students in their math fact fluency. Please sign-up using the Google Form further down in this newsletter. Childcare will be available for this event.


Lastly, as we work on improving safety and security on campus, please again note our new front gate procedure, as well as common sense reminders and tips during the school year. This information is below. You will also be receiving a separate message explaining Raptor, our new digital visitor management system.


Have a wonderful weekend,

Mr. Scharer

New Front Gate and School Safety

Recently, the fence and gate at the front of the school was moved back, behind the front office door. This will allow us to close the front gates while still providing access to the office. When the front gate is secured after drop-off, all visitors will check-in to the office and access campus through the office back door. Over the summer, we will be installing a second door on the interior side of the fence to allow access to the office to and from the interior of campus.


As a reminder, all campus visitors and volunteers must check-in and out at the front office. All visitors must wear a visitor sticker with their name. If you see someone without identification, please inform the front office. Additionally, please close the front gates while entering and entering and do not prop them open during school hours.


As always, if you hear or see something suspicious, please inform the front office as soon as possible. We appreciate your help in following these procedures.

Noddin Parent Education Night

Noddin will be hosting a parent education night on Tuesday, March 10. There will be sessions on how we teach writing at Noddin/USD and the importance of math fact fluency (and how parents and teachers can help!)
