A MESSAGE FROM MR. ST. LOUIS

Dear 8th Grade Parents and Students,


The Northgate PTSA is making plans for the 8th Grade Mixer including decorations, refreshments, a photographer and a DJ. We appreciate your support in making this a successful middle school event. The Mixer will be held on Friday, May 9th in the Northgate Big Gym. And will begin at 7:00 PM and end at 9:00 PM.


Our theme for the 8th Grade Mixer this year is “A Night at the Beach!”


We want this to be a special event for all eligible students. We want to emphasize that this is a middle school casual event. Our Northgate mission is to provide a developmentally appropriate program, which promotes the intellectual, physical, emotional and social growth of our middle level students. We ask for your cooperation in helping students adhere to the following guidelines for the 8th Grade Mixer:


1. Only eligible students from Northgate may attend the mixer or be on school grounds.

2. Students on the D/F List or Obligation List are NOT eligible to attend.

3. No limousines.

4. Attire for this event should focus on casual, beach attire that is school appropriate. Students who do not abide by these dress code expectations will be required to change to clothing that meets the dress code or they will be sent home.

5. Appointments for hair styling, nails, tanning, etc. scheduled during the school day will be unexcused and students will not be allowed to attend the mixer. Credit will be lost for class periods missed under those circumstances.

6. Students must meet eligibility requirements and abide by attendance regulations described in the Northgate Parent/Student handbook.

7. Student behavior will be expected to reflect participation in a special school event. Inappropriate behavior, including horseplay, pushing, and running will not be tolerated, and discipline consequences and removal from the event may occur


Thank you for your commitment in making “A Night at the Beach” a fun and memorable event for our Northgate Students.


Sincerely,

Steve St. Louis

Principal
