NIS PTO Update

Thank you all who donated and participated in the PTO Fall Fundraiser! We were able to reach out goal of $10,000 and have earned lots of fun prizes like popsicles at recess, a DJ at lunch, and other fun things!

October’s National Bullying Prevention Month reminds us that students, parents, teachers, and school administrators all play a role. Positive change comes as we begin to emphasize respect and inclusion at Northpointe Intermediate.

What is Bullying?In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Department of Education released the first federal definition of bullying. This definition helps determine whether an incident is bullying or another type of aggressive behavior or both.

Car Rider Line Reminders

Thank you all for your patience and flexibility as we have worked through car rider line logistics! Please remember that when you exit the car rider line, you can not turn left. You must turn right onto Northpointe Blvd. If you turn left, it becomes a safety hazard and can also impede the flow of traffic exiting and entering the car rider line. We appreciate your help with this!

Reminder: Student Dress Code

A reminder to all of our Wildcat Parents and Students:

- All students must wear clothing that adequately covers the body. Shorts and/or skirts must reach the mid-thigh. Spaghetti straps, strapless, backless, see-through and low-cut tops are not allowed. Tops must cover the midriff.
