A Message from the Principal:


Dear North Parents,


Thank you for your support this week as we navigated M-STEP and P/SAT testing. The students did a great job! Don’t forget this upcoming week we have a half day on Thursday.


We continue to add items to our upcoming events section, so make sure to check it out each week. The spring is full of amazing showcases of our students’ talents. One new event is next Saturday, April 23rd; mark your calendars now! We are hosting our first ever Craft Show Extravaganza. Our Band and Orchestra Boosters have worked tirelessly to host this event to raise money for uniforms for our recently revived North Marching Band. We have a large and talented group of students participating in marching band and we can’t wait to see them outfitted in the Norseman green and gold. There will be over 100 vendors at the show. Come shopping and support our students.


We hope you have a wonderful three day weekend!


Take Care,

Dr. Kathryn C. Murray
