North Glendale Family Update

October 24, 2021

Good morning!

This week you received a KSD eSpotlight with information about our just-launched-survey- opportunity.

We are currently surveying our families in order to gain insight into your perception of our school and district effectiveness. To ensure we continue to provide high quality, rigorous learning experiences that meet the needs of our learners and foster a climate of belonging, we want to know what you think. At NG we are looking for a high return rate as we will use the information from our families (and staff and kids) to better plan for the future.

To take the survey please head to this ink:

Please reach out if I can be of support around this, or any other NG topic!

HALLOWEEN AT NG ~ Tweaks to the Halloween Parade

After a year hiatus from our Halloween parade, we are excited to show off our costumes once again!

This year, we are bringing the Halloween parade closer to home. For safety concerns, as well as making sure that every NG student who wants to walk the whole route is able to do so, we will be parading around our campus.

Additionally, we will have a staggered start schedule in HOPES of making it a little easier on spectators to keep track of where their kiddos are. Spectators will be welcome to view from just about anywhere on our campus ~ except the sidewalks as that is where the kids will be walking.

A staggered start will begin at 2:15 ~ we will exit by grade levels onto the back playground.

I am posting our anticipated route below. As this is new for us, we may be tweaking a bit in the early part of the week. I will send a final route and time table mid-week.

Does your Student Need an Alternative to Halloween at School?

We know that not all families celebrate Halloween and may not want their child dressing up for our parade. We will have an alternate Fall fun activity for kids who would prefer to not be part of the parade. Please email Jennifer if this is the case for your student.

Reminders about Costumes

As your Superstar contemplates their costume please adhere to our guidelines:

  • Costumes will be BROUGHT to school, not worn.
  • Kids must be able to put on their costume independently, over their street clothes.
  • No weapons, gory items, scary masks etc. A good rule of thumb ~ if you have to ask if it is too scary or gross for our school probably is.
